    LOL@London hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. You're a funny guy. Book Of Eli was a waste of time for Denzel. I can't believe The Hughes Brothers did classics like Menace II Society and Dead Presidents and then do some bullshit like this hahahahahahahaha.

    on a serious note though, i hope they pick a better script next time, for real, because they have the talent

    yeah he does a lot of them i've gotta pay the bills type movies certain times, i can't hate on him for that you know, ha ha, so long as he fuck's around wit a couple of sick scripts once in a while too, like 'malcolm x', 'american gangster' , 'he got game', 'training day', 'crimson tide' and so on and so on

    but i ain't gonna front or nuthin, i heard that 'devil in a blue dress' is supposed to be decent or sumthin, is this true?

    You can check out Devil In A Blue Dress for yourself to see if you like it but it was boring to me. Don Cheadle did a good job in it. My manager at my 2nd job who said Book Of Eli was good said he didn't like American Gangster. Ain't that a bitch? LOL. He said American Gangster had too much violence LOL.

    he wasn't blind.
    if you think he was, then you take things at face value too much.

    all throughout the movie you see him LOOKING at shit. looking out windows, looking in peoples eyes, looking at people hands, looking at his ipod, looking at his new boots as he tried em out, looking at the sky/sun.

    i have this on dvd and i had to point these things out to somebody who also thought he was blind.

    he wasn't.

    he wasn't.
    he wasn't looking, he was pointing his face in the proper direction. he looks at the sun because he can probably still make out a little light, or feel the heat. he travels according to the sun's position. basically, they need to have him do this or you would be able to tell he's blind right away and it would ruin the surprise at the end

    when the corpse is hanging in the closet, he walks right into it

    when he goes to put his gun down in one scene, he misses the table twice

    when he's checking out a house in the beginning, he runs into a bunch of shit

    when we wants his battery back from the pawn shop owner, he needs him to place it in his hands

    he wakes up when the sun hits his face

    he reads braille..

    the climax of the movie is when the camera zooms in on his hazy eyeballs when he begins orating the bible

    when the chick's blind mother walks into the room and says "make a sound so i know where you are" he realizes she's blind and asks her a bunch of questions about when she lost her sight, whether it was during the nuclear war, etc. she's probably the only other blind person he's ever met due to the difficulity of surviving in a post-apocalyptic world. this also acts as a dramatic irony because you're thinking "haha this bitch is blind, too bad she can't see like my man denzel!"

    yes, he shoots with deadly accuracy and is an adept brawler. you can attribute that to his heightened remaining senses, and the divine guidance. film makers can get away with all of this shit just by saying "god is guiding him!"

    he could hear the bird in the air and the chick could not

    when the cannibals are about to feed them he hears her silverware rattling

    if you're watching it and paying attention there's countless hints

    any evidence of him having sight is either

    1. bad scripting/directing
    2. "god's guidance"
    3. him "looking" in the right direction to throw off the audience

    when he killed the cat, he walked right up to it, LOOKED AT IT, and wiped the leaves off.

    during the shootout at the old folks house, he kept looking out the window.
