no spoilers

The Da Vinci code has been panned by both critics and friends, though I think many of them are hopping on the “Dan Brown’s Overrated” train. I argue that the train itself is overrated.

Now, I’m not saying the movie is in my personal top 10, it isn’t. But it is being grouped in with other films, such as National Treasure, which are in the same category of “bad conspiracy theory”. However, I find it hard to believe that either The Da Vinci Code or National Treasure are as bad as everyone makes them out to be. They’re empirically superior to those comic book movies everyone seems to love. Call me straight, but I just don’t find movies with full grown men hopping around in spandex all that enticing.

Except for the new Superman movie. Kevin Spacey as Lex Luther?

best… casting… ever…

  1. I was going to let your bashing of Spiderman slide by (It was a subpar protrayal of the comic book), but the X-men are off limits. You’ve crossed the line Red; expect to feel repercussions for that link.
