This year saw two films attempt to take down the White House, with the most recent being disaster master Roland Emmerich's White House Down.  Although he famously destroyed the entire Presidential residence in one blow in 1996's Independence Day, Emmerich treats the title structure with much more reverence and care this time around.  (Don't worry, he still beats the hell out of it.)  Equally bloodied and bruised are White House Down's heroic duo, played by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, who must take down the threat inside the Oval Office while rescuing the hostages trapped inside.  It's one of Emmerich's most entertaining films to date, and now that it's available on Blu-ray, you can check it out for yourself in your very own home.  Hit the jump for my review. Feature Although Emmerich may be best known for obliterating the White House, he takes his time doing so in White House Down. »
