I can’t wait to watch “Angels and Demons”, a film based on the novel by Dan Brown, the same author of The Da Vinci Code. I’ve been waiting for this after I read the book about a year ago. Today is the premiere showing of the film but I can’t go watch it cos it will be late in the night and I need to be early for work the next day. The sleepy head in me has a hard time getting up in the morning. Anyhow, this film seems less controversial than that of the Da Vinci Code despite the involvement of the Vatican City and religious personalities in the story. I remember the Da Vinci Code was banned in the Philippines and pulled up from theatres after a day’s showing. I didn’t know if the ban was revoked later or something. I’ve watched that film and I should say I didn’t become less Catholic after that. I hope this will not be the case for the “Angels and Demons”. Nonetheless, the actor, Tom Hanks hasn’t been a disappointment when it comes to movies like this.
I told hubby I wanted to see this movie with him since he also had read the book. But it’s quite a problem for me cos he doesn’t like going to movies. As a matter of fact, we haven’t gone to movie theatres together since time immemorial, hehee. He’d rather wait for the film on dvd. How can I persuade him to go with me. I was thinking it would be my chance to watch a film at the VIP lounge of the three year-old movie theatre (Bergakungen). I went to this theatre once with my friend but we took the ordinary lounge. The VIP costs more than the usual lounge. I heard that the lounge has it’s own bar where the guests can sit and enjoy some drinks and snacks an hour before the show. And that one sits comfortably on a leather armchair inside the movie room or whatever it’s called. Anyway, it’s fully-booked for today’s premiere. I still have to convince hubby to come with me perhaps on the weekend.

I haven’t read anything by Dan Brown before. I think maybe I should start sometime soon…

Rozella, I’m fascinated with crime novels that’s why I like his books. You should try and tell me what you think. 🙂
Nick Phillips says
I’m a huge Dan Brown fan and have read all his book. I wouldn’t miss this for the world 😀
And Rozella, go get a Dan Brown book today. You won’t be disappointed 😀
Nick, you, bookworm, I don’t know how many books he’s written but I’ve read 3 books of him. I’m really engrossed in DB’s novels.

One thing is for sure.This movie is going to shock all the Christians around the world.We better watch this movie to test our faith.
CPA, it won’t be as critical as that of the Da Vinci Code, I guess. It’s (98%) merely fiction and no history involved (like in the DVC).
I haven’t read the Novel din, (as if naman masipag akong magbasa ng Novel haha) but I want to watch it, malapit na rin yata ang showing dito or baka showing na nga.

Amor, basahin mo mga books niya kasi parang bang pag nasimulan mo na ay wala ng tigilan, hehee. Sabi ni Honney sa May 15 daw showing nito diyan at worldwide. Ewan ko bakit nauna dito.

I think this movie has alot of potential, thats for sure! I know alot of my friends also want to see this movie
Yes, and those who’ve been waiting for this film must have read the book, too. The story is kind of enthralling.
It is related to Tom Hanks, I can’t afford to miss it.
It is good that i have not read the book, so it would be a fresh stuff for me.

Tom Hanks is my favorite actor and I’m glad he’s the one doing this film. Oh, sometimes the book has details that the film can’t suffice. But in your case, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the book.

Even I’m waiting for this movie too release here. I’m a big fan of DAN. Though his novels are not well pictured in the form of movies and sometime it is big disappointment.

I absolutely agree with you. The book has story details that the film can’t complement. That’s why I’d never replace novel books with films.
Dream Home Plans says
I like teen films and im in the mood to download and watch one with a nice pizza right now. So any ideas? It has to be half decent, funny, and gotta have naughty bits in it 🙂
Lol! Have you watched American Pie? It’s the only film I can recommend with some naughty teen curiosity, hahaa!
Saw this movie just last week ate My, nice one. But for me, Da Vinci Code is much better. The mysteries in this movie kasi was kinda “GULO” in the sense na hindi ko na magets kung saang book or totoo ba or logical ba or what. Hehehe! Basta nalito ako sa movie. Good thing may Arabic substitle ang cinema dito sa Qatar. Nope, I’m not expert in understanding Arabic but somehow I was able to clarify some scenes with Hubby “What happen?? Why??” hahaha!

Jhari, buti ka pa nakapanood na nito. Ako, sa bakasyon na siguro. Hehee, kaya nga minsan mas gusto ko panoorin ang dvd kasi pwedeng ulit-ulitin kung di maintindihan.
loved the book but haven’t seen the movie yet. am really looking forward to it 😉

I like the book, too. Hope the movie will not be disappointing.

I’d say Boo for Davinci Code, but some friends say the Angels and Demons is a great movie (and it doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity)
Michael Aulia’s last blog post..Switching to a simpler theme (temporarily?)
Neither did the Da Vince Code. If one belief is involved in the movie, some say it’s all about Christianity, which is totally a misconception.
