Mining the DaVinci Lode
I've just gotten back from seeing The DaVinci Code, and I have to tell you, if I was a movie reviewer it would get only two stars.
It started out OK, but as it was getting to the climactic scenes, every controversial conclusion that the book has was watered down so as not to deliberately offend everyone. They even found a way to include the Star of David in a 'meaningful' way!
On the whole, I like the book much better - but then, it wasn't created by committee. As for the movie, I hope all those protesting Christians feel better that the movie wasn't as offensive as it could have been.
