Angels And Demons

Got up 9:45 in Sunday morning. I seldom got up this early during weekends; i usually sleep until near noon. But yesterday was different cause im going to watch Angels and Demons at the price of RM5! Gotta be the early bird to catch the worms. I got to be honest, im not so anticipated in watching Angels and Demons, not until yesterday. Not that i dislike Tom Hanks. Mind you, he's a great actor, one of my favorites along with Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Cliff Owen, Russell Crowe and so forth.

I read Da Vinci Code's novel written by Dan Brown couple of years ago, thus when the Da Vinci Code movie was released, many reviews and critics greatly slammed that movie. Cause the novel was more captivating, with each and every single aspect being explained and portrayed in detail. So you could see why im a little reluctant, and i seem to prefer Star Trek (cause Zachary Quinto is in that movie) and the local production, $ell Out.

Angels and Demons

Speaking of Angels and Demons, i too brought that novel but i could only managed to finish half of it, didnt have enough time to actually finish the whole book before the movie.

After spending my 2 hours 19 minutes in the cinema, all i could say is, its REALLY GOOD! Two thumbs up. I would surely mark it 3 thumbs up, well if i happened to have another thumb. The storyline is quite the same as the one i read and i could basically link from what i've read to what i've seen.

With the story set on Vatican City (the place i've always wanted to visit ever since the emergence of Trinity Blood), i cant help but to let myself be amazed with the scenery. The architectures, structures, buildings, statues of angels and saints, pillars and obelisks. Even if you cant understand whats Illuminati or why do they need to kill the four cardinals, just for the places shown and the richness of histories are enough to make worth of your hard-earn cash paid.

You just have to see it for yourself!

Haha, yea.. Da Vinci Code is rather a disappointment after which I have read the books before the movie, I was one of the group to give a slammed on that movie in the past.

But after I watched this one last Friday, it is indeed awesome. It's really like "Angels & Demons" comparison between both movies. Never regretted to have spent RM21 for both me and my sweetie for that ^^

Btw.. correction for you on Cliff Owen, it's Clive Owen. Cliff Owen is a Director during 70's. If he read your blogs, he will be =.+. "You know me, but you don't know how to spell my name!!" LOL

Shu: Dear, im more than sure i'll be interested. A place filled with arts and masterpieces; sculptures and architectures. As for food, i get to taste my favourite pizza and pasta. CHEESE! Also, and also, AC Milan! Kaka! But above all, i dont think my wallet could permit me any travel that involves huge expenses. Sigh...

*dreaming of Sistine Chapel*

Henrick: Its a good film isnt it? Its going to be categorized in my top-10-must-watch-movies list in 2009. Im curious, why is it RM21? Extra RM1 for reservation purposes?

Oops, my deepest apology. Clive Owen. If im not mistaken, you're the one who lend me Derailed DVD, there's where i get to know him. Then our movie gang for Inside Man (one of my favourite). I just read some news from Wiki, Inside Man 2 is said to be released in 2010. I wonder what are they going to rob then...

I wanna watch The International and Duplicity.
