More CD Madness
It's a sign of just how big a nerd I am, that the CD I was most excited for was the soundtrack to "The Da Vinci Code." I just finished the watching the movie again over the weekend, and fell in love with the soundtrack again. First, I highly recommend the movie. Juli, I know that you said if you wanted a historical search/puzzle-solver movie, you'd stick with "National Treasure." But I think this one is very much worth at least a once-through. Yes, there are religious themes which may contradict personal beliefs of one kind or another, but the movie doesn't promote one over the other. Like Tom Hanks says in the film, "What matters is what you believe." It's definitely worth anyone's time.
More than that, the soundtrack is beautiful, sweeping, and just the kind of brilliance that I've come to expect out of Hans Zimmer. He has, as they say, done it once again. I get goosebumps just listening to Track 13, "Chevaliers de Sangreal," which drives the final climax of the movie.
Isn't music wonderful?
