I thought Wahlburg and Baldwin were fantastic in backup roles.

Small doses of straight-up, Boston cursing from the two was hillarious. In fact, I think one of the best exchanges in the movie is their "How's your mother?" argument.

Brief, simple, but very effective.

The Davinci Code, worst movie I've ever seen

The Da Vinci code was poor to mediocre. I don't know why Howard felt the need to mess with the book so much. The book wasn't mind blowing or anything, but at least it was a fun read.

What do you guys think the biggest snub of the Oscar's was? For me it had to be Pan's Labyrinth winning best cinemetography over Children of Men. Pan's might be a better movie, but the shots in Children of Men were some of the best I've ever seen.

It wasn't that the movie was bad, to me, it's just that there were so many holes in the story I couldn't follow along. It was taking bits and pieces from real history and just flat making up a story to go along with it.

Waitaminute... Mary Magdaline wrote her own Gospel? :roll:

Its amazing there were people stupid enough to take that book for fact. :shock:

I've got both movies... but still haven't been able to watch them. Maybe I'll be able to help you in a couple of days... :wink:

I agree, it was just very hard to follow and believe.

Exactly. Believability is huge, for me.

That's why I was never afraid of "The Ring". Please. A little, 6-year old girl is terrifying? Why? Because her hair's wet and in her face? :roll:
