Julia and I went to see Angels and Demons a couple of weeks ago and I was astonished to discover I liked it! Astonishing because I did not like The DaVinci Code movie particularly. I think this is because I didn't read Angels and Demons and I did read The DaVinci Code like half the world did. There was too much in the book that I looked forward to that didn't appear in the movie, and further, the tone of the whole deal was much more menacing in the book which I liked. Dr. Langdon, also, was not at all like the loveable guy Tom Hanks portrayed. Oh well.
But the most amazing point of the whole experience was that we saw a guy come into the movies wearing full LDS temple clothes with white makeup on his face. He also had a little curtain he had fashioned out of white fabric attached to the back of his hat. Weird. I don't know what he was up to, but I don't think he accomplished his purpose. Not many people paid too much attention so he just went on to go into his theater and we went into ours. I don't know what movie he saw, but my son, Ben, suggested it might have been "Up." Ha.
