Welcome to episode 294. Today, we watch “The Da Vinci Code”!

A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years — which could shake the foundations of Christianity.

Join Scott, Randy, Dunaway, and Ibbott as they hide the old man’s weiner.

  2. Geez you guys just did NOT want to sack The DaVinci Code!

    I’m not sure if I want to say “FOCUS!” or “Just get a new movie!”.

  3. Is that an actual screengrab from the movie? If it is, it’s completely out of character. This film was such a stick-up-its-butt, po-faced slog. I didn’t realize when I first saw it in theaters, but now… oboy. I also noticed the timeframe of the film seems to take from around 9 p.m. one night to midday the next day which seems way too little time for so much plot (especially if we take into account all the travel involved). I have yet to listen to the episode, but based on Michael’s comment above it’s tangets-palooza again, which I whole-heartedly welcome.

    • Janos, it’s Brian Ibbott’s prize cryptex from a Google Da Vinci code quest he won back in 2006…I love how it says “shite” 🙂

  4. I don’t have the same ‘body horror’ issues as Scott in movies although I do confess that there were two in particular that I found so disturbing that I refuse to ever watch them again. The first was Reservoir Dogs when Michael Madsen (Mr Blionde) cuts off the cop’s ear and then douses him with gasoline. I don’t know why that bothered me so much plus it ruined a great song for me because every time I hear Stuck in the Middle with you I think of that. Thanks Quentin you sick &@@@&6 The other one is the vise torture scene in Casino. The movie itself was horrible and that scene pretty much did me in. I don’t remember a thing after that probably because I shut it off.

    I think our reactions isn’t so much that it’s ‘gross’ but that we somehow identify with it? Its hard to explain but its not the same as watching walkers chow down on someone in Walking Dead.

    Oh and Scott, if you have wiener issues in movies, I’m sure seeing Jason Segal doing full frontal and swinging it back and forth in Forgetting Sarah Marshall will clearly put you over the edge.

  5. Dear sackers;
    While listening to your sack of this fine extra long pile of pooh, I heard Scott read an email from Dan Brown. As you read, it mentioned he had a day job at a theme park, and it was depressing. Then hilarity ensued with the Mouse comments and such. I, too, worked at a Theme park, in Florida, dealing with SEA life. It was fun, until a movie was run on CNN every day, and PETA started protesting. Anyway, the man in charge of all three of these parks is named Dan Brown, so I could see how that would be depressing.

    Thanks for helping keep things light

  6. Dunaway, pretty much everything inolving history or religion in the book and the movie is bull. It’s like Ibbot said, it’s only impressive if you’re completely unfamiliar with any of it. Dan Brown is notorious for presenting absurd fabrications as “factual” backdrops for his novels; I’m surprised that some of the Sackers seemed to take this crap at face value in 2016 when the issue was already a dead horse a decade ago. It’s even worse in the following books when he drags in parodically bad explanations of science and technology to go with the pseudohistory.

  7. Route B f it’s more likely to happen and happen sooner. Plan A could always be imltemenped in the future if an esplanade becomes realistic. At this point, it’s going to be a while until piers 1-6 are complete and that has far more momentum than this section of the greenway.
