First up was The Da Vinci Code. You probably know I’ve read the book and have been working a lot on a blog to discuss the book/movie. I can honestly say that the movie was a let-down for me. I much preferred the book. I’ve never really read a book before seeing the movie version so that was new for me.
Now the movie that I really didn’t expect to see was X-Men 3. I’m not a huge X-kinda-Man, but it wasn’t bad. Actually liked it. I thought it was kinda funny at the end when all of a sudden the abandoned cars on the bridge had their headlights on when they weren’t on earlier, but hey, it’s just a movie!
What I thought to be particularly interesting with the movies is watching Ian McKellen all weekend! I mean, on Saturday he questioned the deity of Christ, on Sunday he was moving cars with his hand better than Obi-Wan. So you’ll have to forgive me if I get Teabing and Magneto a bit confused.
For instance, why couldn’t Teabing just break open the codex with his superpowers? Did Magneto think Jean was married to Jesus? And it was Magneto with the canes and Teabing with the helmet, right? That helmet would have helped ward off Silas, that’s for sure.
Anyway, on to a Memorial Day holiday. I doubt we’ll be heading back to the movie theater. Maybe I’ll watch Ian interacting wit Frodo…or is it Geordie?
I’m sure glad that I got to see McKellen and Jean-Luc Picard in the same movie. I always get their voices confused.
You shall not pass! Make it so!
