Saw Davinci Code

While my parents were here to see the baby for his birthday, Golf and I took advantage of their second day here and we saw the Davinci Code movie. I really enjoyed it and felt it stayed true to the book. Although Tom Hanks played Langdon well, he wouldn't have been my first choice of actor to play Langdon. However, in thinking about it, I still don't know who'd be good in that part... The actress who played Sophie did well too and was a beauty.

I cried at the end when he discovered where the Holy Grail lay -- as I did in the book too. Now if only Angels and Demons could be made into a movie. But that book would really get some controversy! But the history of it seems well thought out too. I actually learned much about Christianity and its history from those two books because I wasn't raised in that religion.

Oh and I've never understood why the Catholic and Christian religions are seen as two seperate religions. Aren't they all Christian? Doesn't make sense to me.

My husband and I went to go see it too, last Sunday. My husband being Catholic and hearing all the controversy around it really wanted to see it. I thought it was a good movie, and a well told story. I could see how the Catholic church would be a bit upset, but I don't think the book/movie was meant to drive people away from their belief in the church. I haven't read the book yet, but I plan to. I do agree with Tom Hanks casting. Kind of strange, but who else could it have been? I'm just thankful it wasn't Ben Affeck or Brad Pitt!!!

I agree, Danna. Don't care much for Ben and Brad doesn't fit the profile much. Am SOOO glad it wasn't Tom Cruise. He's just creepy now days.
