Yesterday, I went and watched the new Denzel Washington movie, The Book of Eli. Denzel–who remains one of my favorite actors–stars as a mysterious wanderer, Eli, who journeys across post-apocalyptic America bearing a sacred book.
I’m not gonna say much more than that about the plot–I’d rather you go see it yourself. I enjoyed the sterling performances from Denzel, as well as from the supporting cast of Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, and Jennifer Beals; and I thought the story was nuanced and well-adjusted enough to avoid heavy-handedness or preachiness.
When you’ve gone and seen it, then we can talk about what it says about humanity, what it says about God, etc., etc. For now … I’m just gonna tell you to go see it. Here’s the trailer to pique your interest:
And on a related note, the movie reminded me of the importance of Scripture: of reading, speaking and hearing the Word of God. Hearing Denzel Washington reciting Psalm 23 was pretty sweet.

Welcome to 2010! (Here’s Jon Stewart’s review of 2009.)
Since there was ZERO net job creation in the US over the last decade, let’s hope the next ten years go a little better, shall we?
- From Foolocracy: "Rush Limbaugh praised the American health care system while in a Hawaiian hospital for a couple of days during the last week. What he did not mention is that Hawaii has the most socialized system of any of the 50 states and, with its near universal healthcare, resembles the Obama health care plan."
