Damn that week is going to be a killer for my wallet. Mickeys Christmas carol, Winnie the Pooh very merry pooh year, a Christmas carol steelbook, elf steelbook, turbo, dexter season 8 and now White House down. I'll be picking this up. I thought it was a lot of fun. It did have the die hard feel to it. Hopefully it'll be on sale for Black Friday.
This movie is overtly political crap that demonizes half this country's political beliefs, and tries to hold up Obama(the same man who's about to involve America in yet another war) as some kind of superhero by having Foxx portray an obvious, heroic caricature of him. Typical of Emmerich.
