Lately, I've been thinking about doing away with the darned Frustrated Sosyalera Picks of the Week stuff. So I've ceased posting it for a couple of weeks. But then I find myself struggling to when asked what movies are out for the week, that I'm forced to bring it back.
The major difference now is that I'm doing it for myself, but that you are welcome to share the information. Hehe!
Anyway, somebody told me that The Book of Eli must be a good one to see this week. Unfortunately, it has a rotten rating at RottenTomatoes.com. That has not stopped me before, though. Alice in Wonderland was rated rotten, but I loved it!
Book of Eli
Starring: Denzel Washington,Gary Oldman
Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth--all around him, the... In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth--all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water...or for nothing at all.
But they're no match for this traveler.
A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli (Denzel Washington) seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It's not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive--and continue.
Only one other man in this ruined world understands the power Eli holds, and is determined to make it his own: Carnegie (Gary Oldman), the self-appointed despot of a makeshift town of thieves and gunmen. Meanwhile, Carnegie's adopted daughter Solara (Mila Kunis) is fascinated by Eli for another reason: the glimpse he offers of what may exist beyond her stepfather's domain.
But neither will find it easy to deter him. Nothing--and no one--can stand in his way. Eli must keep moving to fulfill his destiny and bring help to a ravaged humanity. --© Warner Bros [More]

The Lovely Bones
