The Da Vinci Code

I saw the Da Vinci Code last night.


Wow, so Paul Bettany is the scariest man on the planet.
I never knew that.

Being the bad little English major that I am, I haven't read the book (I read two chapters in Walmart once) and therefore have no expectations and nothing to compare it to.

As such, it was pretty good.

HA! The Malleus Maleficarum! It was funny to see that make an appearance, given my short but interesting forary into the study of it.

The grail lore stuff as told by Ian McKellan's character was pretty interesting, but as for the rest.. I kinda wish they hadn't explained quite *so* much of everything.

Still. I liked it, and I would recommend seeing it now, because it's gonna lose some punch when you take it off the big screen.
The best do.
