- The Da Vinci Code
Right, I have never read the book. But I saw the trailer the other day and the only thing I could think of was that it looks like a great action movie. Everyone will tell you its about the last supper, christianity or whatever. No no NO! Its a full blown fictional thriller/action movie! Its got pistols, submachine guns, land rover, planes, cop car chases, Sony Ericsson W850 and the crypto thing. I have to say, the whole story is made up by ingeniusly stiching up myths, legends such as the Templar Knights and stuff. Absolutely enthralling.
Tom Hanks was just a great professor and Audrey Tautou was fantastic too (very attractive in this one compared to her other movies). The settings in the story were great from: la Louvre to Westminster Abbey.
"But it doesn't match the same story in the book... nag nag nag... there were 2 crypto things weren't there". The answer to that moan is: Do you really want to be cinema for 6 hours? I felt it was pretty snappy and the combination of modern day life and the 300AD stuff made it a great way to spend 2 hours.
Lotte–the–loveliest–Beligian–on–earth's birthday was on Friday. She and the rest of us had a pretty good day overall. We ended the day by going went down to Salingers where we rendezvous'd with Alistair (who had hastily got there before us, all the way from Oxford). And boy do they have fantastic ribs down there.
Today my head was done in by Colin Oram. I was attempting to do his whole module in one day. I got 5 out of 6 slides done. No you didn't watch eurovision did you? The guys from Finland looked like they came straight out of someone's Warhammer collection. Funny though.
