(Not My) Thoughts On The DaVinci Code

I am not a deep thinker about all of this. I haven't read the book and don't plan to see the movie. Mainly because I don't see but about 2 movies a year, and this wouldn't be a pick for me. However, you can get some interesting review information at Mommy Life.

don't worry -- you won't be missing anything.

I caught the advance screening on Tuesday night, and I was completely UNDERwhelmed.

Aside from the first 15 minutes or so, it's talky, overlong and plain dull.

Tom Hanks looks bored and tired. And way too much of the "thriller" is given over to having people talk about the "facts" related to the conspiracy, rather than thrilling us with the pursuit of the answers.

Several critics in the audience chuckled during those moments when the big "secrets" are revealed.

I posted a review of the movie on my blog.

The DaVinci Code is a work of fiction and completely against scripture. I was so disappointed when my Christian moms group was selling the books. Satan has a way of confusing believers through twisting of scriptures.
