Midtown Powerbooks
They only had it set up presentably along with other Dan Brown Titles. No big event happened here.

We ate there because it was a farewell dinner of my OFW cousin who will be going back to Dubai. The group improved a lot since I was last there but thy are not as many as before probably because it was on a week day.

Review: The Da Vinci Code Illustrated Screenplay

I got this from Fully Booked after my claiming it for my blog post was selected by them. The screenplay is not just any script book but includes also the ideas behind the movie by Dan Brown. He made insights why he didn't wrote a screenplay for the film and it was quite reasonable. I selected this so that it may proved useful when I take up filming at my Broadcast Communications course.

Movie Review: Charlie Wilson's War

I just got to watch it on HBO. The first Hanks-Roberts tandem was great. I was also haunted by the words of Joanne Herring played well by Julia Roberts when she said "it was God's will that they should help Afghanistan" in this pre-9/11 story. The question here is Joanne really sensitive to God's will when she herself entertains an affair with Charlie Wilson. If so, was 9-11 also God willed? The reason I asked this because I am currently reading When Religion Becomes Evil by Charles Kimball. He stressed that one of the signs that religion is evil when a religion makes a holy war and when a religion made an absolute truth claims. The U.S. was also guilty of these claims when they came to liberate to the Philippines which was also the same mistake done by the Spaniards. How many must all die in the name of God? Is God serving both sides or both has a different God? What I and Charles Kimball is saying that we should be careful with such claims.
