National Treasure
So, last night I decided to go catch a movie and I saw the 00:45 showing of National Treasure. It is a passable movie, I found it entertaining but I'm not going to say it is a 'must see' movie. Still, anyone who's read Discordian material, RAW's Illuminati works, etc, will probably be amused. Because the plot revolves around many of the founding fathers being Freemasons (true) and having hidden away the great treasures of the Knights Templar (probably not true), with the map to the treasure written on the back of the Declaration of Independence in invisible ink. The Dramatic Foot Chase Through Philly went on a bit too long.

I am: amused amused

I read of it and it's on my 'see when it hits DVD' as I enjoy the subject matter and enjoyed The DaVinci Code, which is a similar story. (I almost never go to theaters due to lack of captioning availability.)

I might get around to The DaVinci Code at some point - but from what I know if it, I would recommend Umberto Eco's Focault's Pendulum and The Name of the Rose.

I'm enjoying The Da Vinci Code quite a bit more than I enjoyed The Name of the Rose, I think probably because its modern setting elides a lot of the morbid religion-mutated sexuality that was going on in the latter. There's only one real freak job among the cast of Da Vinci. :)
