The DaVinci Code

#1

Post by Mystical » Fri Dec 16, 2005 10:29 pm

Started reading The DaVinci Code. Skimmed through later chapters (I always do that). Really mad. Don't know if I should read it--give it any value by wasting my time on it. Anyone here read it? I know the movie's coming out soon.

I haven't read the novel, but it isn't fact. Many rebuttals have been made on it, but the secular world keeps pumping more pro-The DaVinci Code stuff out. Tom Hanks (actor in the movie) and Ron Howard (director) are Christians from what they said on t.v., why they are contributing to this movie, I don't know, probably for the money, but they have added a twist to the end of the movie :D.

as you can see, the "historian" in The Da Vinci Code isn't as smart he thinks he is.


And I think the movie is movie gonna be stupid. The "secret" information has already been "revealed" through the book, and the plot in TDVC isnt all that exciting, so I cant imagine how the movie is gonna do good. It would have been much better if they turned Dan Brown's Angels And Demons into a movie, which has a much more thrilling/exciting plot and storyline than TDVC, it would have been pretty entertaining. But TDVC?? It doesnt seem like movie material to me. The controversy is over, Brown :roll:

The sad part is that the author even admitted he made it up.

I agree - but hollywood hype does not :cry:

Angels And Demons would make a far better movie, did the Pope's helper do a good thing or bad?

Hmmmm,,,

I think they realize it is fiction and the story is interesting but it is poorly written so they wanted to tell the story in another way, through a movie.

I hadn't heard anything about Ron Howard or Tom Hanks professing real, believing Christianity.

I'd be interested in what they said?
