Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Mr. and Mrs. Smith isn’t just an action romance film. The 2005 movie actually catapulted Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie into a whirlwind romance in real life. The movie is about a couple who meet in Columbia where each is secretly on the run from Columbian authorities. It turns out both John and Jane are assassins working for different organizations. The couple pair up to avoid capture without either one knowing their true identities. They fall in love and marry. John and Jane Smith live a normal life in the suburbs while each secretly works as an assassin without the other knowing. After a few years of marriage, both are bored until they are both assigned to kill a DIA prisoner during his transfer and discover who they are really married to as they both botch the job. Both Mr. and Mrs. Smith now have a hit on them as they are each assigned to kill the other but realize they might truly be meant to live together as a happily married couple.
Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark
In everyone of the Indiana Jones movies, Jones (Harrison Ford) has a love interest. In every one of the Indiana Jones movies, there is a lot of action. The first of the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark has the most sexual tension combined with action. The 1981 Steven Spielberg movie takes place in 1936 as archaeologist Indiana Jones must find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis find it. Jones runs into an old flame, Marion Ravenwood (Karon Allen) on his journey. It’s clear that the two have feelings for each other but as they run from one disaster to the next, their love is never fully requited. The couple exchange a lot of witty banter as they flirt, and it’s clear that Jones is often intimidated by Ravenwood who is just as driven and plucky as him.

When Casino Royale came to theaters in 2006, we saw a different kind of James Bond than in all the previous installments. This James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) is less comedic and more emotional. We see Bond’s interpersonal relationships for the first time. While Bond girls of the past were for visual purpose, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) means much more to this James Bond. Casino Royal tells the story of the first Bond movie. Bond has earned his “00” status but is taking his license to kill far too seriously. He is sent on Holiday and winds up finding a terrorist ring involving a high stakes poker game. Lynd is the accountant who must oversee Bond’s spending of government money as he tries to earn back the money in the poker game. Lynd is more than eye candy in this installment of James Bond films.

The adventure brings the about to be over couple back together again.
Romancing the Stone
Romancing the Stone is one of the most classic action romance movies of all time. Robert Zemeckis directed the 1984 film about a cynical romance novelist trying to rescue her kidnapped sister in Columbia and enjoying some much needed action in her life. Kathleen Turner plays Joan Wilder who finds herself in Columbia amid a dangerous hunt for treasure alongside a rogue mercenary, Jack Colton (Michael Douglas). The movie is a crazy adventure filled with tense action and comedic banter between Colton and Wilder who never would have met or bonded under any other circumstance.
Financial advisors and asset allocators who had been hoping to see some benefit this year from tactical strategies were also not spared the punishment of a capricious market. Of the top three tactical strategies in the country (Mainstay Marketfield, Good Harbor U.S. Tactical Core, F-Squared Premium AlphaSector Index), two had nearly imploded with double-digit losses while the third found itself under SEC investigation for misleading the public about its historical returns. The other giant tactical manager, Schwab’s $9 billion Windhaven Diversified Growth product, looks to end 2014 with a return close to zero. So much for tactics.

He comes to the aid of Regina Lampert (Audrey Hepburn), an American living in Paris, after her husband is killed. Regina was about to divorce her husband, Charles, because of his many secrets and lies. It turns out he sold off all of their marital possessions before he was killed.

The problem is that Peter Joshua may not be whom she thinks. Regina is not sure who to trust.

The Thomas Crown Affair
The 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair is just as exciting as the original 1968 version of the movie. In the original the main characters were played by Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. The remake starred Pierce Bronson and Rene Russo. Thomas Crown is a self made billionaire who can have any woman he wants. Bored, he develops a hobby of stealing art masterpieces. When Crown steals a Claude Monet painting, Catherine Banning is the insurance investigator assigned to get the painting back. Banning is able to match Crown’s wits.

More recently, however, General Motors made a self-driving car in 1958 that adjusted its steering wheel based on the alternating currents given off by a wire placed inside the road. While the vehicle did actually drive itself, it does not qualify as the first autonomous vehicle because it depended on wires placed inside the ground. The world's first autonomous vehicle was made by S. Tsugawa and several of his colleagues at Japan's Tsukuba Mechanical Engineering Laboratory. However, German engineer Ernst Dickinson is regarded as the pioneer of the autonomous car. In 1987, he developed the VaMoRs which was capable of traveling more than 90 kilometers per hour (55 mph) for about 20 kilometers (12 mi). Seven years later, he made the VaMP, which could recognize road signs, know its own position in a lane, detect other vehicles, and even decide when to change lanes. And a year after that, he and his team made another autonomous vehicle which traveled from Germany to Denmark. The vehicle had a maximum speed of 180 kilometers per hour (111 mph) and was controlled by a human for about 5 percent of the journey.
