Last Sunday, I settled in on the couch with my Queen, and we plowed through six movies. It was a lazy day, and we just went from one movie to the next with no real rhyme or reason as to what we were watching. It was so much fun, and something I hadn’t done in more than ten years. We enjoyed it so much, we are going to do it again this weekend! I’m going to be putting up reviews of all the movies, but to whet your appetite, here is what we were watching.
Point Break (1991)
After a string of bizarre bank robberies in Southern California, with the crooks donning masks of various former presidents, a federal agent, Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves), infiltrates the suspected gang. But this is no ordinary group of robbers. They’re surfers — led by the charismatic Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) — who are addicted to the rush of thievery. But when Utah falls in love with a female surfer, Tyler (Lori Petty), who is close to the gang, it complicates his sense of duty.
Dante’s Peak (1997)
Volcanologist Harry Dalton (Pierce Brosnan) and Mayor Rachel Wando (Linda Hamilton), finally convince the unbelieving populace that the big one is about to hit and that they need to evacuate immediately, only to discover her two children have gone up the mountain to get their grandmother. With Earth‘s clock racing against them, they must rescue the kids and grandma before the volcano explodes in a fury of flame and ash a million times more powerful than an atomic bomb.
