Here's the REAL mystery

I finally got around to seeing "The Da Vinci Code," which was playing last night on Starz.

And even though I was watching it on the Starz HD feed on my beautiful Toshiba LCD hi-def set, half the movie was so damn dark, I couldn't tell what was going on. I understand they were looking for atmospherics, but, seriously, if you can't see the damn thing, it's pretty confusing.

And that's the real mystery. I never read the Dan Brown novel, so maybe it's the age-old case of the movie not quite living up to the book, but how the hell did that thing get so popular?

The book was better but it was complicated too but the movie really was bad. It's one of the worst things I've seen Tom Hanks in and I LOVE him.

It could have been made so much better. Memphis Red I agree I usually like Tom a lot. I don't know what went wrong this time???

The problem in seeing the movie is I now have no interest in reading the book.

You should give the book a chance. It's actually not a bad beach read and it will probably take you through the whole summer! :)
