    Anyone see Angels and Demons yet?

    I might see it either tonight or tomorrow.

    If you saw it, what are your thoughts?

    I haven’t seen it yet but it is on my “movies to see” list. It appears to be a good movie from the previews I’ve seen so far.

    Would like to see it at some point, probably after it comes out on disk.

    Outlandish plot but still a good one.

    Read the book and if the movie's ending is anything like the book, I won't even bother with a rental.

    The book is fine till the end.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    The book came before the Da Vinci Code? Does the movie, or is it a real sequel?

    Yes, it's a prequel.

    THe book is a prequal the movie however is a sequal to the movie.

    Pretty good movie, not sure if i liked it more than the Davinci Code or not. Seeing the 'vatican' was pretty fun. Remembering that alot of it was CGI kinda took you away from the movie...

    I wish they would have given more history like the first one.

    A crappy ending shouldn't void the desire to watch the rest of the movie. Fiction after all. That said, the ending in the book SUCKED.

    You mean you read both books? Angel and Demons was just released on May 15th unless there was another version of it that I missed.

    I read both books and saw di vinci code. Angels and Demons was definitely my favorite of the two books.

    Really? I read the Da Vinci one and I was hopping mad by the end of it. Something about the book just rubbed my rhubarb.

    What didn't you like about it? I read another Dan Brown book Deception Point which was pretty good. I think what I like best about his books are that they are pretty fast reads.
