We watched two movies after we got back from Oklahoma this weekend:
- Prince of Persia, which Craig got for Christmas form my sister. This is a unique twist - it's a movie based on a video game instead of the other way around! It's a classic action flick, though the plot had more depth than I expected. Lots of slow-mo sword fights and jumping off buildings, with some computer-generated backdrops - you could definitely see its video game roots - but it was also well-acted, especially by Jake Gyllenhaal and Ben Kingsley.
- Ken and I watched Salt, a spy thriller starring Angelina Jolie. She plays a CIA agent who is accused of being a double-agent for Russia. It was very good, with lots of twists and turns that kept us guessing. It was a very complex plot, and by the end, we still weren't 100% sure that we understood exactly what had happened and why! But we liked it.
