Rainbow The Book of Eli
I just got home from seeing it.
The story is about the last bible in a post apocolyptic steam-punk America. It is a very good movie, I thought and I wanted to hear what other atheists thought of it Heart

I haven't seen it but the trailer looks interesting. I'll watch it one of these days. We should start a movie thread.

RE: The Book of Eli
Upon first viewing the trailer I was immediately giddy to see a new post-apocalyptic film in the vein of The Road Warrior. Being a fan of the genre, one must get used to the repetitive "lone wanderer" theme so prominently used. I figured this film would go through the same formula, but prepared to enjoy myself.

Yes it did use the lone wanderer as a driving plot device, and yes it did bring the arbitrary twist. Yes all the survivors are short on t-shirts, but live in a wealth of leather and goggles. Yes everything in this film looks like and feels like a typical post-apocalyptia. But the substance of the story is far more powerful then I could ever have expected.

RE: The Book of Eli
So it's not too preachy? I'm interested in seeing it, but I'm somewhat afraid that will be a little bit too religious for my tastes.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

Well, the movie is largely based on the ideas and possibilities of faith (christianity in this case). I found it to be really entertaining, although it did get a lot more religious towards the end.

I highly recommend watching it, at the very least it's entertaining.

RE: The Book of Eli
I watched the movie and thought it was great action flick.
Gary Oldman says it best http://www.traileraddict.com/clip/the-bo...s-a-weapon

Even thou it has the overtones of Christianity it seems to make the arguement that the control that can be exerted with the use of the bible is very apparent.
