Cinematic Saturdays – National Treasure

Cinematic Saturdays - NationalTreasure


Riley Poole is seriously one of my favorite characters ever.  He is pretty much the only reason I watch the  National Treasure  movies.   I don’t really like Ben and I don’t like Abigail that much either.  But I watch the movies anyway.

Because of Riley.

C’mon… He’s great! 😉

And yeah, I know this is way more than one or two favorite scenes, but… I just couldn’t

pick a favorite Riley moment!  My very favorite is, perhaps… the grossed-out shiver that can be seen in the second deleted scene in this video.  I always laugh so hard when I see that!  And it has become a “quoted moment” for us.  But that didn’t actually make it into the movie, so….. it doesn’t really count.

Anyway, I might also include a link to a video of Riley quotes at the bottom of this post… just for fun. 😉

Historian and code-breaker Ben Gates has been searching his whole life for a rumored treasure dating back to the creation of the United States.

But when Howe betrays him, Gates has to race to get to the document ahead of his so-called colleague.
