So guys I just got to to work and I first have to thank my lovely spouse for allowing me to leave for work early so i could catch a 4:30pm showing for The Book of Eli.
I couldn't wait to post this thread once I finished watching it, so as soon as I got to work here it is, lol.
First I want to start by saying I LOVED the movie. Not just because it was shot on the RED, which of course meant it LOOKED PHENOMENAL, but mainly because of the subject matter.
Over the past few weeks, and presumably thought this entire new decade I prophesy that we will see an abundant amount of (Post Apocalyptic) films being produced, which is simply due to the overarching climate the world has entered into.But this was indeed one of the most substantial ones I've seen, recently.
As a bit of a disclaimer I feel I have to state that my opinion on the subject of this film may, and possibly for a certainty is biased, due to my faith. I am a Christian, and an outward one as well, lol, not to mean anything by it, just that I want to have placed complete disclosure to those reading this.
Anyway as for this film, I realize that many may not have seen it, so I WILL NOT go into details but, I just want to say that faith in troubling times is extremely important, and the film expounds on it beautifully.
As for the look, I honestly don't believe any other camera could have obtained this particular look, as well as the RED did. I just loved it.
I'm usually not one to go on ranting about films on boards, but this movie just stirred me up from within, so much so that I wanted to make sure that "I was still carrying the fire".
Have a look at the movie if you haven't and if you have I'd like to know two things.
1. Firstly what did you think about the look of the film, and how much more excited have you became, due to seeing it, for the eventual release of both Epic and Scarlet?
2. Secondly what did you think of the story? (NO SPOILERS) Just opinions, w/o grave detail, have respect for your fellow colleagues, and allow them to enjoy their film, just as we did.
