Angels and Demons Movie

Hmmm, I think since I am academically writerly and whatnot I'm not supposed to enjoy things like "The DaVinci Code" and "Angels and Demons" but I absolutely and totally love them. I reserve my right to love pop culture, and I stand firmly behind it.

Dan Brown's purple prose is a blend of some of my favorite things: mysteries, history - especially subversive groups in history, and European Things. How could I not love them? Just because the prose is so purple it belongs on a Drag Queen Float on Gay Pride Parade Sunday, doesn't mean I can't enjoy myself.

I watched Charlie Rose constantly interrupt, er, I mean, interview Tom Hanks, Ron Howard and Ayelet Zurer (the woman who plays the female main character, Vittoria). They look like they had fun making the movie. I'm looking forward to seeing it sometime soon...
