The Book of Eli on DVD

Over the weekend I decided to just keep my bohunkus (per my daughter) home and chill with the kids. It was the first time that I have done that in a while and it was great. It felt good to stop and just chill.

With that, I had some time to watch a few movies.

Bounty Hunter with Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler was just another romantic comedy, and as much as I love romantic comedies, this one was just regular. I cannot say to stay away from it because it was entertaining but it is not really a must see. If you like Jennifer then see it. If you like Gerard Butler than see it. If you do not care for either of them, you can pass.

The Spy Next Door with Jackie Chan is another one that I can wait to watch on television. I have to say that my kids liked it. I thought it was cute but again not a must see. It was just okay for me.

The Book of Eli with Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman is a definite must see for so many reasons. First off, Gary Oldman is freaken awesome. He does justice to villains. This is not a movie to watch with the kiddos though because the killing is quite undelicate (lol); there are body parts flying all over. What is so great about this movie for me was the message of hope and change and what it means when people who have lost hope have a chance to get it back. Help others more than you help yourself was what Eli took away from his experience.

The acting was where it should be with a cast of that caliber. Denzel delivered as well as Gary Oldman and the supporting cast. Definitely a must see.
