DaVinci Code and Tom's long hair...

Saw "The DaVinci Code" this weekend with my friend "D". I enjoyed the movie, and Tom Hanks with his professor look was just fine! "D" had read the book and said she thought it helped her follow the movie. I haven't read the book - but I have a bit more religion and history background, so perhaps my other reading helped me.

My only complaint about the movie was that the theater hadn't framed the picture well, and the English subtitles for the dialog between the French police disappeared into the bottom of the screen. Obviously, THAT isn't the fault of the movie makers.

The scenes where historic events were superimposed over the modern events were very impressive. I often have a sense of "what has happened here before?" and being able to "see" the crowds of people from centuries past makes history become more real.

My friend asked if the theories in the movie/book conflicted with my own beliefs in God. For me, God is bigger than any theory, good or bad, so I'm not worried about the effects this or any movie might have. As for the effect on any particular part of organized religion - well, people have messed with God's message for centuries, so this isn't new.

If nothing else, this story seems like a good example of using 90% fact and 10% imagination to take the reader/viewer to new conclusions. Some of the best fiction (including fan fiction) does that very thing so well.
