Angels & Demons (redux)

So we finally got to see it last night, with its linear plotting, clumsily-telegraphed intentions, stereotyped, one-dimensional personalities, and tensionless direction.

On the positive side, there are some great shots of the architecture of Rome and the Vatican; on the negative side, we really must stop CERN making oodles of antimatter in short-battery-life containment vessels. And never trust an Irish priest who seems too good to be true.

As we left our seats, we waded through little piles of popcorn and discarded plastic cups to get to the aisle. In the lift going down, the demographic seemed to have enjoyed it.
