Murder at 1600 (1997)

Sam – Well played having the murder happen not only at the address 1600, but they also made sure to show that it happened at precisely 4pm Eastern time.  Kudos to the writter and director for pulling these two things in together so perfectly.  I have a really hard time caring about cop-suspense movies though I’m a pretty big fan of the suspense genre as a whole.  I just got burned pretty bad back in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  Turns out the cops win in those.  Not too much suspense in that.

Tim – I was having a hard time figuring out the politics of this film. On one hand, the Snipes character built miniature war scenes for fun (republican film), Dennis Miller had a small roll(republican film), and the murder suspect president is a pacifist secular humanitarian (republican film). BUT, then the bad guys turned out to be warmongering, military industrial complex types who framed the prez (liberal film.) BUT, there’s an assassin named John Kerry (republican film.) So, I’m getting more mixed politics here than if I had been flipping back and forth between Bill O’Reilly and Keith Oberman. Oh..wait…what’s that you say?  Not all films have political agendas and some are meant to merely slightly entertain as you wipe your bleary eyes and eat Honeycomb on the couch at 9 in the morning? I see. Well, carry on.

Josh – N/A

Things said during movie (not-review):

– “Dammit!  Sean DID find the cookies even though we hid them!”
