the da vinci code: countdown minus 38 days
so who is totally psyched about the da vinci code
movie!?! i finally read the book a couple weeks ago after it came out on paperback. john is in the middle of it now. but we are both totally hooked. i am in the process of looking into how you join that whole priory of sion thing. i think i would be a good addition, don't you (maybe i could even be a senechaux?)
anyways, if you haven't read the book, READ IT. it is one of the most entertaining terrible books i have ever read. i mean, i know it isn't like quality literature or anything, but you won't be able to put it down. sure it might be plagiarized. sure it is mostly lies. sure the movie has forrest gump in it. but if you look past that, you will find the beauty that is inherent in murder and religious fanaticism.
also, if you haven't seen the trailer, here it is
. but don't watch it until after you have read the book. (as a general rule, i hate watching a movie based on a book until after i have read it. that's why i haven't seen the harry potter movies yet). still, even the trailer gives me chills. i love the part when tom hanks throws the cryptex up in the air. i can't wait to see the whole scene.
