So, just saw The DaVinci Code

1. It's not an evil movie per se. If you had fun with it, more power to you.

2. Some of the architecture on it is gorgeous, in particular the houses. I so want to live in some of those places (at least for a while).

3. That said, I think of this movie as the hyperactive, well-groomed but not-too-bright little brother of Foucault's Pendulum. Actually -and no offense to the Code's fans, this is purely a matter of taste- it kind of feels precisely like that, like it's just too juvenile to take seriously, even if it's trying in earnest, while Foucault's Pendulum is a book you can engage as an equal, and thus find fascinating, even when you don't like it. And I probably should stop using relationship metaphors when talking about movies and books, right?

Other gripes, but with spoilers for the movie. Perhaps they are addressed differently on the book; I haven't read it.Collapse )
