It's been a few weeks since I've written a Movie Monday post because we've been so busy we haven't had time for movies! We often watch a TV show on DVD before bed, but we rarely have time for a full movie.
As a result, I've been craving a movie lately, so I grabbed a couple off the shelf at the library last week. We only found time to watch one (because OSU was playing against their arch rival, OU, on Saturday night, so I lost Ken!)...fortunately, it was a good one
With Craig away at a sleepover, Ken, Jamie, and I watched The Sentinel, an action-packed thriller with an intriguing plot about the Secret Service (the service that protects the President). For the first time in history, there is a traitor within the Secret Service and evidence of a plot to assassinate the President. No one knows who to trust. Michael Douglas plays a renowned agent who saved President Reagan from assassination, but when he fails his polygraph test, he becomes the main suspect and is taken off the service. His main accuser is played by Keifer Sutherland who used to be his best friend. Douglas' character is forced to go on the run until he can prove himself innocent. In supporting roles, Eva Longoria plays a rookie agent, and Kim Basinger plays the first lady. It's a fast-paced, exciting thriller that keeps you guessing. We all enjoyed it.
I'm hoping we can find a little time for some holiday movies in the next few weeks. Of course, I will have to have my annual viewing of It's a Wonderful Life and cry! Of the more recent holiday films, we really like The Holiday and Love, Actually.
I'm open to suggestions - what are some of your favorite holiday movies?
