Close the Book

We saw Book of Eli over the weekend.  1. Post-apocalypse is one of my favorite genres, and 2. Gary Oldman.

But I’m here to tell you…..OMG…

JUST…..DON’T……GO!!  I can’t even muster up a review; word fail. SO appallingly bad.  Trust me on this.  I took the bullet so you guys don’t have to. STAY AWAY!!

Thank gawd that I’m going out tonight to see A Single Man.  Arty-arty Art film with jaw-dropping visuals, gay content, good acting (they say), directed by a fashion designer.  If that doesn’t bleach the scummy residue of Eli out of my cerebral cortex, nothing will.

    You took the words out of my mouth. I went to see this movie for 1 reason, Gary Oldman, but even that couldn’t save it. Quite possibly 1 of the worst, lamest and most eye-roll inducing movie I’ve ever seen.

    I was looking forward to it after I saw the trailer in theaters so many moons ago … then I found out what THE book was. meh. Not even your love for all things Oldman swayed me on this one. Speaking of end times … I see you on FB. *giggles*
