Da Vinci Dreamin'

How do you know when you're way too excited about an upcoming movie? When you start dreaming about it, of course. Last night I had a dream that I was running around Paris with Tom Hanks uncovering clues and decifering codes. It was actually a great dream. I didn't want to wake up. But as excited as I am about the DaVinci Code movie, I know I'm going to be disappointed. I saw the trailer for it last week when I went to see Basic Instint 2 and even in that brief clip I could see a couple of things they changed from the book. I won't say what they are. You'll have to see it for yourself. In my opinion the casting of Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon is bizarre to say the least. I do, however, like actress Audrey Tautou for Sophie Neveu. She was great in Dirty Pretty Things and Jean Reno is always watchable. I guess I'll just have to reserve judgment until I've seen it.

Of course another reason for my dream could be the fact that I've made up my mind to take the plunge and go to Paris next year even if I have to go alone, which I probably will. I've never been to Europe and there are many other places there I'd love to visit. But Paris has always held a certain fascination for me. Don't know why. I took three years of French in high school and two quarters in college. Can I speak French? Non! So, I've decided to go with a tour group. This one looks promising. Hey, if any of you have been to Paris please drop me some suggestions on places to go.

I think it's always hard to watch a movie after you have read the book. Though there are some good ones out there like the James Pattersons..Imo
I'm still nosy enough to want to see the Davinci code on the big

I feel the same way about the Harry Potter movies. Great books but the movies aren't nearly as good and they have to leave so much out ; (.

I am a Harry Potter fan also..I agree with you on that.
I did like the lion the witch and the wardrobe and Memoirs of a geisha.

Maybe, maybe not; but, when it comes to cars, this is the consensus!
