Angel & Demons Filming is Banned By

The Vatican banned film crews from filming the interior of two churches featured in the movie.



They say it's because of ideological diffrences with the movie.


They clearly have not read the books.....

The film crews should all cut the particular churches away from wherever they are with herrings. That'll solve their ideological differences.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Huh?


The thing is, they can't film in a different church, because the church and the art inside are integral to the plot.

Never mind...

Just... I wished someone would cut something down, like the mightiest tree in the forest, with a herring. Churches are almost as good...

And on the eighth day, god created the movie set. And it was good.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

And on the ninth, he created competent actors.
On the tenth, he created Sylvester Stallone.

ROFFLES

TT_TT STUPID CHURCHES!! (has been waiting forever for her Angels and Demons).
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: If I were unwed, I would take you up in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?
Wash: 'Cause your pretty.
(Wash and Kaylee, Firefly, Heart of Gold)

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

But, now we'll have to see crappy set build, as opposed to a real church.

Hell yeah!

I'd want to see all of his books filmed. They are all blockbuster action movie esque.

Murder in the beginning, stunningly smart characters, dramatic end-of-the-world like plots...
