I caved in. My initial reaction was not to even see the film at all.
I convinced myself, after not really believing what I read, and felt strongly what I believed in, that watching "The Da Vinci Code" on DVD will be a painless exercise of viewing a fictional masterpiece from a great story-telling author.
I was right.
The movie was cinematically-great and its screenplay based on the novel of Dan Brown, which I finished via an Ipod E-book, was able to provide some aspects of the book that a visual person (like me) should see by himself. Wasn't this the reason why the book had to have Illustrated versions replete with images of the real backdrops to the whodunit book?
I had misgivings on how it portrayed the Catholic Church, and I stand by what I believed as a creative liberty for the authors to have mixed fiction with truth. Whatever it was, it turned out to be good, but not goof-less good, yet still unbelievable. :) But after watching too much Amazing Race, Nicolas Cage's National Treasure and a lot of Scooby Doo when I was young, the plot has staled a wee bit.
What was good about the film was that it starred two of my most favorite movie characters, "Amelie" and "Forrest Gump".
Paparazzi would remember this picture pretty well.
Taken in front of the Mona Lisa which played a cameo on "Da Vinci Code", this picture shows my 2 Mona Lisas in my life. Two beautiful people, whose beautiful genes were passed on to moi :). Any travel with us, is not without the drama and alongside it comedy. Reminiscing what happened that day always gives me a twin grin and a smile, why I'm like me and why my genes act the way they do.
Countdown continues. 25...days to go....
