Angels and demons was a really great movie. Tom Hanks has done his job really well and the story is awesome. I was amazed by the beauty of Vatican city. The movie is a mixture of Action and suspense. You'll love it for sure...
I heard it was good, must get a chance to go and see it, cheers !
its directed by Ron Howard for heaven's sake - so sure, I'm supposed to love it! The guy is yet to mess up his videography!
The book was really good but IMHO the movie stank. The plot was reduced to a 6th grade level and the camera jiggled so hard it made me dizzy. It was also full of strobe light effects - that constant blinking is not what I would call conducive to following a plot line. But maybe that's why they dumbed it down so much.
I went to see it because I thought Da Vinci Code was so much fun. But this was, sadly, far below the quality of the other.
This here person clearly knows very little about Cinematography...
Yes, I know a lot about it, if you had thought to ask . . . . I just don't buy into the garbage that passes for Cinematography today. I'm also not on Ritalin . . .
see, that's what you should have said, not talking all that amateur critical bull about the movie. Sorry for your condition.
O glorious movie expert, pls enlighten us your children on what passes for Cinematography, according to your glorious judgment that is.
Why are you so upset? You have another opinion - so what.
who's upset? You said Ron Howard's idea of cinematography is shit - who by the way, has 3 Oscars to his credit, how many do you have by the way? Hey, just back your words up and show us what quality Cinematography is. Enlighten us?
Yeah, that's my opinion, this movie was sh*t. So what? Who cares what I think? Or are positive opinions the only ones allowed on this thread? I could care less how many oscars he has - so why don't you get out of my face about it. As for enlightening you, how about this . . .
Blinking strobe lights affect one's cerebral cortex. It creates a disorienting effect on the brain so that it is conducive to visual programming. When combined with intense and continuous camera "jutter" (camera never still) it has the effect of opening up one's mind to subliminal messages and the injection of ideas that disallow one's ability to discern for oneself whether or not to hold those ideas as one's own.
In short, I don't want no stinkin' programming.
Where did you copy that from, Wikipedia? <snipped personal attack>
I suggest that you refrain from calling people plagiarists. And also from derisive abuse.
Haven't watched the movie yet but have read the book and it is the best among all four from Mr. Brown. Hope that the movie lives upto the expectation of the book!
The plot is shortened somewhat, which I understand has to happen. Otherwise it would be a film of 6 hours duration.
They sped things up at the start, I don't think I'll be ruining it for anyone by saying that it's the Vatican who bring in Robert Langdon rather than CERN. Which is fine, it quickens the pace of the movie and goes straight for the meat.
There are (at least) two other big changes with the script. One a powerful plot point that was axed. A big twist that they left out completely. I went and saw the movie with a friend and when we had a bite to eat afterwards I explained to him that bit, as he hadn't read the book, and while as a movie for the uninitiated it doesn't suffer for its omission, it could have been so much better if it kept it.
People, Dont you just wanna puke your guts out, when people who know shit about movies open their ignorant mouths and talk about people who've been in the game for decades and know what the heck they're doing.
havent seen it, or read the book, in fact, this is the first Ive heard of it. WIll go check it out tho. my netflix que is getting low. Ill be back to give my "expert" opnion.
Cos I get a kick out of that kinda stuff. Ignorant people make me laugh. There you have it. I said it.
I agree that there was a great reduction of plots in the movie but how would you except anyone to cram up everything contained in a thick gigantic book into a 2 hour movie?
Mostly nice Reviews from the Thread. Look forward to watching it on DVD when it's out.
i have seen the movie,but i honestly the book was far much better than the movie.i was very very disappointed with the movie
did u not notice that so many details from the book were omitted in the movie? why should they have to remove the character of maximillan kohl for instance,and even the hassasin was much different from the book.
they should have included these two characters,at least.

Approx 460 people have read one of my hubs yet not one of them have left a comment. Just wondered if others had a similar result.Just curious..... Thanks
by Dorsi Diaz8 years ago
I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...

Is it possible for Hubtivity to show who gave a hub a thumbs up. This question came up in my hub "Why I Don't Always Comment, Even When I Loved Your Hub". JamaGenee made the comment, and I agree...
by Hokey6 years ago
Maybe its just me but I realize the work people put into their writing so I comment. Even if its just a thanks for sharing. How about you?

My stats is no longer showing the number of thumbs up or thumbs down I am getting on any hubs, or even just the totals. The columns are just gone. Am I having a problem, or is this stat something we all can't see...
by Rodney Fagan8 years ago
Or is it a dumb question? I have not had a single thums up in the past 2 weeks, usually I have quite a few, or is it no longer an indicator?
