No matter the sub-categories people give it, the fact that it is a fictional story negates any argument that it can be (or is) even the slightest bit factual and/or historical.

Dan Brown simply followed the same plot-template he established with Angels and Demons. Only this time, he touched a big enough nerve to allow him to sell millions of copies.

I just want to see the Tomb Raider-esque fun that seems to be prevailent through out the trailer. That's what made National Treasure so much fun to me, and I think that's what I'll like about this film.

Sure thing, Jay. Why don't you just donate some money to the Church of Satan while you're at it?

Just kidding.

Seriously, though, the movie seems to be dooming itself through sheer bore power. According to https://www.rottentomatoes.com , only 18% of their 180 reviews considered the film to be marginally okay. I also heard that when it premiered at Cannes, the audience burst out laughing during the movie's climax. :)

Ok, I may have angered the Opus Dai, but I checked the film out tonight. I enjoyed it, but it was obviously a goofy work of fiction. None of the 'valid points' of the religious facts that they try to pass off are neither valid nor facts. Pure silly fun, that's all it was.

Although I did get to see Paul Bettany's bohiney. That was worth my admission price.

Every penny. ;-)

I haven't seen the movie or read the book. ( my girlfriend lent me the hardback, but i doubt i'll find the time) anyway, its just a bonehead movie put out to make a lot of money. all the bitching and complaining does is make the movie more money.which increases the chance of hollywood coming out with another bonehead movie. It would have been more interesting and a lot more historically accurate if instead of jesus and mary m. you would have had ghengis khan and martha washington moving to france and starting a royal bloodline. If you want to see a better tom hanks movie try volunteers or the man with one red shoe. anyway, hows things going in big ada?

Favorite Books

  • Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?

    Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?
    An amazing book that makes the case for God not by citing the Bible or great theologians, but by analyzing the philosophies of famous atheists and showing their flaws.

  • C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity

    C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity
    C.S. Lewis was an atheist for much of his life. Appropriately, this book makes the case for the existance of God first and Christianity second with carefully outlined and surprisingly simple reasoning. I consider this required reading for anyone searching for meaning.

  • C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy

    C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy
    Religious Sci-Fi Fantasy: A very tiny genre. In "Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hiddeous Strength", C.S. Lewis manages to tackle difficult theological questions as we follow Dr. Ransom in his adventures on Mars, Venus, and back on Earth. My favorite science fiction series by far.
