"A group of archaeological students become trapped in the past when they go there to retrieve their professor. The group must survive in 14th century France long enough to be rescued." (The imdb summary.)
2 Fast 2 Furious before I saw the first movie too. It was just a random DVD lying around on my friend's table and we watched it and I liked it a lot and I discovered the prequel much later. Thus, my fandom started with a whole different movie. And in that I think there is only a handful of us out there! Nonetheless, I'm glad this was the first one!
The second first is of course Gerard Butler. No, this was not his first movie I ever saw, but his second as in his first one he played a very different role - The Phantom of the Opera - which being a musical and having his face covered 90% of the time didn't give me much to look at. This movie on the other hand... they knew he was eye candy for sure! I love his character here, as being older than our main characters, he tries to lead them, but he - more than the others - realizes that history is quite different when it is learnt from a book than being in it. Finally, this is the first movie that I've seen Neal McDonough in. Which, unlike the other two completely shocks me because, Neal has been in LITERALLY everything I have seen so far. Third Watch, The Guardian, 88 Minutes, Desperate Housewives, Captain America, CSI, CSI: NY, Agent Carter... and I'm not listing his voice acting because I don't have the time!
I truly hope some of you will give it a try, and others, hey, it's been over 12 years since this movie was made, maybe it's time to get back to it. See if it can become a classic!
Happy Birthday Paul!
Until the next item on my list!
