I FINISHED REREADING DAN BROWN’S ANGELS AND DEMONS, yet again, yesterday afternoon and it was still a great read. it was like watching your favorite movie in your head. hehe! then, i went to the computer shop to check up on my site and do some net surfing. i decided to visit you tube and stumbled upon this:
i had chills while watching it! the concept of a half-angel-half-demon sculpture was a brilliant idea. there’s a frame in the clip where you can see a man (probably max kohler) being taunted by a red-hot brand. the brand was in a form of overlapping skeleton keys forming a cross. that can’t be good, can it? if my hunch is correct, the writers edited out the myth of the illuminati diamond. hays. I hope hans zimmer did the musical scoring. I love how he was able to come up with the stained glass-cathedral effect using a full orchestra and a chorus. bravo! The track used in this clip (chevaliers de sangreal) was ringing in my head while writing this post. hehe! 2009 will be jam-packed with block buster movies. angels and demons and harry potter and the half-blood prince are definitely my most anticipated movies for next year. ironically, time crawls when you want it to fly.
tom hanks will be playing the symbologist robert langdon again in angels and demons. i am disappointed at first when he played the role in the da vinci code but somehow he exuded some geekiness that helped him play the role. i think monica belluci (mary magdalene, the passion of christ) was perfect for the character of the french physicist
angels and demons is one of my favorite novels probably because of my fascination towards conspiracies, ancient artifacts, and artworks. I was so hooked I even managed to make an ambigram of my name. I made haley’s one too. to have a stroll inside the vatican secret archives would be really cool! i promise myself that i will someday journey to
the book was very informative especially the scientific truths. for the first time, i have grown some interest with particle physics and drawn to discussions regarding CERN and its controversial particle accelerator, the large hadron collider. but i also find it very spiritual. it talks of faith, religion, and morality. i am familiar with the clash of science and religion but i didn’t know it’s that diverse, complicated, and surprisingly well-connected. the facts brown laid on the table are very trivial and controversial. i have also come to know some dark secrets lurking within the walls of the
speaking of spirituality, a threesome of mormons came knocking to our door while writing this post. they wanted to do what they call ‘reaching out.’ i was hesitant and felt a little awkward at first. i am an evangelical christian, but i was able to convince myself that it would be better to keep an open mind. besides, i’m curious to know the nature of their faith and how their faith differs from other religion that i am familiar with. i welcomed them in and eventually they talked about family, prophets, and jesus, and somehow i couldn’t find any difference between my faith and their faith so far. i guess a single faith couldn’t be dismantled within just one sitting. they promised they’d be back this weekend. i am not sure if i want to see them again though… hmmm…
anyway, angels and demons is due may 13, 2009, here in the
