Despite being destined to make a gazillion dollars, The Da Vinci Code sucks - no surprise for anyone who's read Dan Brown's lousy novel or seen any of Ron Howard's lame movies. Too bad that this weekend's other films range from so-so (Over the Hedge) to predictably embarrassing (See No Evil).

And for posterity's sake, I once again urge everyone in the NYC area to get to Film Forum for their B Noir series. I've been spending days at a time catching up on old classics (some are reviewed below; other reviews are on their way), and can confirm that it's the best thing currently taking place in a movie theater.
