Angels and Demons…

April 25, 2009 at 8:07 pm (Uncategorized)

What’s with the uproar over Ron Howard’s new movie? It’s based on Angels and Demons, a book by Dan Brown (he of The DaVinci Code fame). Evidently The Catholic League, or at least its president Bill Donohue, is all hot and bothered about its purported anti-Catholicism.

Here’s a question. Did they see the movie yet? It hasn’t been released yet, so I kind of doubt it. What happened to “Judge not, lest ye be judged?” That’s not such a good motto for a movie critic, I guess, but why is the Church, or the Catholic League for that matter, in the movie review business?

I’ll tell you the problem with Dan Brown…and here’s a hint: it’s not that he’s anti-Catholic. Although he spins a heckuva yarn, he’s a.) not a great writer, and b.) got a real logic problem…as in, he appears to be unfamiliar with the concept. So you know, the smarter move would be to let us read the books, or see the movies, and figure out the flaws for ourselves. Don’t get all Inquisition-y on us.  Just a tip from your Auntie Em.
