Starring Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor
Science and religion. More often than not they’re seen as bitter enemies. Some would even want to say that science has proved there is no God and following religion is a waste of time, a pursuit for stupid people. This tension is at the heart of Angels and Demons. In the wake of the death of the pope, an old enemy of the Roman Catholic Church has returned and is threatening to blow up the Vatican. It’s up to symbolologist, Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), to save the day and solve the mystery of the Illuminati.
I remember seeing the original V mini series when I was a kid. The use of alien visitors to explore the Nazi rise to power and the abuse of authority and trust was striking. There’s a television remake of V coming out this year that I’m very excited about. And after seeing the trailer, I’m even more excited. Because it looks like it will be dealing heavily with themes of faith and worship. This is must see for me. It better be good. The trailer is after the jump.
I have to fess up. I haven’t read all of the Narnia books. I’ve read the first three, so I haven’t actually got round to Prince Caspian yet. It’s sitting on my book shelf, so I will one of these days… But I have seen the movie! So while I can’t tell you what the differences are between the book and movie, I can tell you how much I enjoyed the movie.
