Philippines Copy of Da Vinci Code Movie

Philippines Copy of Da Vinci Code Movie

I am bogged down in my morals, my mother and father did a good job. This does not mean I am a perfect person, however I do know the difference between right and wrong, and I know also it is not always clear.

Two days ago, I purchased the movie.
- The Da Vinci Code -

I keep seeing the previews; it has Tom Hanks in the movie.

This is the cover or a photo of the packaging of the movie I purchased. I was on the way to Robinson�s mall to walk around and look at people. Just outside the mall in the street was one of the stands or street Vendors selling movies. The quality of copy movies or illegal movies in the Philippines is sub-standard compared to Thailand, therefore I do not purchase movies here, and they are crap.

Therefore, the moral dilemma is this, how can I complain about a movie that is illegally copied and sold, and I purchased it.

In defense of my stance or lack of good moral standing, I do not think I have a choice. I think it would take me a week to find a legal copy sold in Asia.

So go figure, in a typical Philippines sort of way, guess what happened when I put the movie in my computer to watch it.


Aagh, a scam a minute.

This is not the movie, it is some documentary or semi-documentary or some made to sell explanation about how the Da Vinci Code came to be or where it came from.


I suppose I can blame myself for buying a copy of a movie, however, it is annoying; you cannot even depend on the crooks to sell you what you wanted to buy. This is a scary thing about the Philippines and always under my skin, I know there is a side story or something I should be paying attention too when I am here. Culture and funky low levels of behavior have skins, or various peelings. You can peel off many layers to a culture, not all people are the same and not all of us are made the same, we are not all equal, it is not that easy.
