Welcome to the first episode of the Personal Vault season of the podcast, where we're going through our own movie collections this time to find poorly rated films we paid good money for on our own time. We started the season out with the joy and magic that is 2004's National Treasure. We actually hadn't decided to do the Vault season until well after we chose the first episode of this season, but of course, we already owned the film. There's nothing worse than watching a film you hate, and then force yourself to talk about it for an hour (Our lives have just been the worst lately), but I have a feeling this season is going to be nothing but joy. In any case, the film stars Nicolas Cage, Harvey Keitel, Jon Voight, Diane Kruger, Sean Bean, Justin Bartha, and Christopher Plummer.
National Treasure had a reported budget of $100 million, made roughly $173 million in The States and roughly $174.6 million elsewhere in the world, for a worldwide total of $347,512,318. I'd say it did pretty well, all things considered.
Welcome to the second episode of the Personal Vault season of the podcast, where we watch critically bad films that we paid good money for on our own time. We continued the magic of this season with the sequel to our previous movie. That's right, we watched the continuing magic and glory that is National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)! Admittedly, the National Treasure films are not the Cagiest Cage that has ever Caged. This is not a secret. However, National Treasure 2 has a Cagier Cage than the first film, at very least. All the main characters from the previous film came back for the second outing, but obviously it adds some new names as well. All in all, this film stars Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Jon Voight, Harvey Keitel, Ed Harris, Bruce Greenwood, and Helen Mirren.
National Treasure: Book of Secrets cost a reported $130 million to make, and made nearly $220 million in the United states and $237 million everywhere else, for a worldwide total of $457 million. Better than the first. Good for them.

Welcome to the third episode of the Personal Vault season of the podcast, where starting this week we're going "round-robin" to decide the movies, all of which weren't received well by critics, but were received well enough by us to end up in our personal movie collections. This week was Dylan's pick, which was the critically panned 1993 Disney edition of "The Three Musketeers. Like most Musketeer films, I'm not sure that Alexandre Dumas would have appreciated it that much. You'd have to read the book to understand. In any case, this film's all-star cast features the likes of Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris O'Donnell, Oliver Platt, Tim Curry, and Rebecca De Mornay. Now just try and tell me that's not a cast you can sink your teeth into. If that's a thing people say about film casts
The Three Musketeers cost an estimated $30 million to make, and only made back $53 million in the United States. I could find no international box office numbers, but I did find release dates, so I concluded that I just suck.
Join us next week when we review 2003's "The Core".
