Angels & Demons and Gran Torino

Jamie and I saw 2 movies the past few days. We saw Angels and Demons at the theater on Saturday night. I read the book and also read and saw The DaVinci Code. The movie was okay for me. I think the problem I have with the movies is that I already know the ending and it follows the book so closely it almost seems boring to me. If you haven't seen it but would like to I recommend waiting until it becomes a rental.

Last night we rented Gran Torino. I must say that this was a big disappointment for me. I am not a big fan of Clint Eastwood, but most people said that it was a great movie. It was a decent story, but the acting seemed forced and unnatural. I am glad though that I waited for the rental on this one.

A couple other movies that we hope to see this summer are Transformers and Public Enemies.

Hey Shel,

Did you mean to write Gran Torino? I liked that movie a lot, and was surprised that it was snubbed for an Academy Award.

Thanks Becky, I thought El Torino sounded wrong.
