The Da Vinci Code — the review’s up!

My review of The Da Vinci Code is now up at CT Movies. It was originally going to run tomorrow, when the film comes out, but when all the mainstream critics started piling on the movie today, my editors decided to accelerate the publication of this piece.

  • There are actually other films out in the theatres right now, right? Like, um… you could actully dismiss some of the hype by maybeeee… talking about some of those hypothetical “other” films?

  • There are actually other films out in the theatres right now, right?

    Yes and no. The Paramount theatre in downtown Vancouver has nine screens, and five of them will be devoted to The Da Vinci Code. (The other four will be divided between Mission: Impossible 3 and Poseidon. Yay.)

    Like, um… you could actully dismiss some of the hype by maybeeee… talking about some of those hypothetical “other” films?

    Heh. True. I’ve actually been dying to post something on some old early-’30s pre-censorship movies that I caught at the VIFC last week. But for the moment, The Da Vinci Code is paying the bills.

  • Feel free to drop by my blog asnd discuss crime films…

  • I’m amused that Howard changed a few things (like adding the Sion hoax in there)to be more accurate. I mean, maybe he was mildly embarrased that the author took himself so seriously about stuff in the book that if he’d looked a little closer would have found out were not true. I mean if “Baldric” can find out for a documentary, yioud think 7 years of research he claimed to do would cause him to be a bit more accurate. Although I’m curious to see the film (more because it’s directed by Howard than anything else), I’m in no big hurry, especially with Jay in a “no seeum” mode for the next little bit. I was kind of hoping the film would stand on it’s own or just tank so it would go away… It’s everywhere it seems.
