The DaVinci Code.
What the heck is the fuss about?
Why can't people differentiate between fiction and non-fiction?
Why the controversy?
Why the hype?
Why such a terrible movie adaptation of such a good book?
First off...the book is an amazingly written work that you can read in an evening.
It's fast paced style really pushes you to get to the next chapter, and the different range of conspiracy theories combined with the cryptic chases are very well thought out.
If you haven't read the book, I do strongly suggest that anyone who is interested in theology or history to read it and see for themselves.
Aside from that...
The movie was horrible, terrible, and very poorly executed. So don't waste your time watching it if you've managed to avoid it thus far.
Yeah, everyone has said the book was good. Dan Brown gets a great deal of praise. If a copy was handy, I'm sure I would at least start the book. Eh, that giant stack of unfinished books in the other room....
I'm a little disappointed that the movie doesn't receive better praise. I think Tom Hanks is a great actor. Shame. Not every film can be a winner, though.
I for one cannot believe that anyone would believe that Jesus and said family, would pack their things and move too, of all places in the world, France. And remain there for two thousand years. I personally couldn't last two days without taking to everything French with a blunt stick. God forbid, if I was allowed to enter the country with a battery pack and a cordless drill, with the correct sockets, because I would start at the bottom, reguardless of the consequences.
The DaVinci Code. ...such a good book...
