I can't wait to see it tomorrow when I wake up. I wouldave went tonight, but I have to work on Friday nights. I really enjoyed the Da Vinci Code, but most seemed to have hated it. Just wondering what you all think of the new one.

The word "Gem" is overused.

I don't know. My dad's been trying to talk me into seeing this, since we saw The Da Vinci Code a while back and we both enjoyed it. I've heard nothing but bad reviews on this one, so I'm gonna wait till it comes out on DVD (next month?). We've decided that he's gonna see it while I go see Star Trek!

Star Trek was amazing (I thought). The first Da Vinci Code has a 24 or 25 ranking on rottentomatoes so it didn't get good reviews either for the most part. Most of the reviews im seeing for Angels and Demons are saying its better than Da Vinci, which is great for me since I loved the first one

I'm being dragged to it on Sunday, it seems. I admit I don't have high hopes, but we'll see how it is.

I liked Da Vinci Code, but I didn't love it. So I'll probable wait for Angels & Demons to hit Blu Ray before I grab it.

I think Dan Brown is a hack author who could at least be known for decent pulp fiction if he didn't try to pass off everything he wrote as the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. According to Mr. Brown:
I could go on, but let me just simplify: If Brown makes a statement of fact, it's almost certainly wrong.
Here's one of many lists of further errors: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Angels_and_Demons/Divergence_fro...
If you firmly switch your brain to OFF before watching the movie, you might find it very enjoyable. But don't look for any intellectual depth. It's about as deep as gold electroplating on a 3 dollar watch.

I think it started heading downhill for Tom Hanks after Green Mile.

No. All the Dan Brown stories follow a predictable Scooby Doo formula.

Mr. Hanks' hair was pretty awesome in the first I just liked the movie as a movie, not too worried about all the stuff that was true or false about what the movie was taken from. It was entertaining for me.
EDIT: I am also a guy who still enjoys wrestling though... lol

Nope. I'm a born again Christian so I'll be avoiding it.

Seeing that I found Angels & Demons to be the better book, it has a chance of being a better movie, too. The DaVinci Code movie was enjoyable, but rather forgettable. It's also interesting that the movie is a sequel of sorts, while the book is actually the prequel.

Well, I saw it Saturday and thought it was a snooze fest really. I thought it was very boring and I didn't like the story that much. Seemed like they wanted you to hate the whole cast except for Robert Langdon, and I did.
@Outrunner: I didn't think catholicism and christianity were the same thing. May be wrong though. It really has nothing to do with religion story wise, or at least I didn't think it did.

Catholicism is one of the main branches of christianity.
