New DVD Tuesday!
A lonely warrior wanders a post-apocolyptic earth carrying with him the only copy of the Bible. Gary Oldman wants this Bible and what Gary Oldman wants, Gary Oldman gets. The direction for this is questionable at best but the story is excellent. Much like "Shutter Island" last week, "Eli" has grown on me since my initial review and I highly recommend it.
When in Rome (2010): Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel
A woman throws a coin into a magic well (in Rome, of course) and wishes that men would fall in love with her. Lots of men then do, in fact, fall in love with her and shenanigans insue. I love Kristen Bell because she is a total nerd and proud of it. So while this looks to be quite cliche and miserable, I might get sucked in on an otherwise fruitless trip to Blockbuster.
Youth in Revolt (2010): Michael Cera, Zack Galifinakas
A dorky high schooler fed up with his boring, "nice-guy" life, creates an alter ego for himself that leads him down the path of destruction. Look, it's clear that Michael Cera is a one trick pony. But man I like that trick.
