What I Did While Waiting for the Monsters in the Woods Sales Trailer to Compress

Watched Book of Eli

Pros
1. Denzel feeding cat to a mouse
2. Rich Monochrome Cinematography. Nice Fluid dollies.
3. Scruffy Denzel. Crazy scars (chicks dig them or so I’m told.)
4. “Put that hand on me again and you won’t get it back.” (He didn’t)
5. Badass single shot, silhouette fight.
6. Ray Stevenson
Cons

1. Ray Stevenson subjected to 2nd banana john woo villain role with a lame death.
2. Repetitive action beats.
3. Big time ANTICLIMAX.



I’m not all that bright, so I’m not sure if the whole Bible deal was heavy handed or clever. I guess I’ve never seen it used in this context before, so yay for that.
I also like how Eli’s blindness wasn’t over obvious and wasn’t dwelled upon too bad at the end.

All in all, I liked it.
Very cheesy ending though.
