This is funny right?

First Dan Brown vilianized Opus Dei and now it's the Illuminati who are the big bad evil. I know it should probably be the other way around as Angels and Demons is the first book in the Langdon series, but the "Da Vinci Code" movie came out first.

Fr. Martin at America posts a piece about Dan Brown and Ron Howard's "Angels and Demons". The only thing that looks nice about the movie is that Ewan McGreggor is in it playing a priest.

There is a video clip where Howard, Hanks and McGreggor are interviewed. The movie looks bad, people. Of course, I'm one of the few people who probably didn't make it through the "Da Vinci Code" at all, neither the movie nor the book. I thought it was dull, silly and dumb. I haven't given the book Angels and Demons a try and highly doubt I'll watch the movie, not even to see how Ewan dresses up a Roman Collar. I have my standards. Sometimes.

It might be fun if you got a group of people together to do a MST3K through it.

I think that's the only way to watch it. It could be turned into a drinking game, anytime Ewan shows up in his collar one must drink and anytime the words The Church are used negatively, you drink.

Hmm, that has the possibility of having a drunken disaster. ;-)
