Angels and Demons / The Soloist

Over the weekend the Mrs. And I got to see two of the latest movies which I had been looking forward to seeing, namely Angels and Demons and The Soloist. Both were great movies but I particularly liked The Soloist since it was based on the true story .

Angels and Demons
Angels & Demons is a 2009 American film adaptation of Dan Brown's novel of the same name, released on May 15, 2009. It is the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, another Brown film adaptation, although the novel Angels & Demons was published and takes place before the novel The Da Vinci Code. Filming took place in Rome and the Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles. Tom Hanks reprises the lead role of Robert Langdon, while director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman also returned.

Obviously it is a controversial movie especially for Catholics and especially since Dan Brown likes to weave fiction with fact. It did net $48 million in the United States and Canada over the opening weekend. One thing that is definitely true deals with the Hadron Collider. This massive instrument does exist in France and it did go online on September 11, 2008  and they do have a public website for those with a scientific bend. There are controversies among scientist regarding this massive instrument who’s sole purpose is to create small Black Holes for research. Some feel this experiment can get out of control. France builds Doomsday Machine...

The Soloist
The Soloist is an 2009 drama film starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.. It was directed by Joe Wright based on a screenplay written by Susannah Grant. The film is based on a true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who becomes schizophrenic and homeless.

Jamie Foxx portrays Nathaniel Ayers, who is considered a cello prodigy, and Robert Downey Jr. portrays Steve Lopez, a Los Angeles Times columnist who discovers Ayers and writes about him in the newspaper. Production of the film began in January 2008 and was filmed mostly in Los Angeles, with some scenes shot in Cleveland. The film was released on April 24, 2009
The Soloist is based on the true story of Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx), a musical prodigy who developed schizophrenia during his second year at Juilliard School. Ayers becomes homeless in the streets of downtown Los Angeles, playing the violin and the cello.

Both movies are well worth watching.
