Sorry, brain fart. It is 2013. Thanks for the Elementary tip. An additional plus is one of my favorite performer's music is used on the show. There's lots of Zoe Keating used in the episodes I've watched.

Edited to add - I knew I'd read something about it being pushed back http://www.examiner.com/article/sherlock-season-3-may-be-pushed-back-until-2014

Watched the pilot of Elementary. Nice, but nowhere as good as the British series, and the opening title seems a bit similar.
Not sure how they're going to play this out, but I don't think having a female Watson is a good idea.

I've been watching it, and I've found it entertaining. At least we don't see this Holmes bare-knuckle brawling like the RDJ Holmes.

"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf'"

 

Take the antithesis of the June and Ward Cleaver couple with an unhealthy dose of "Days of Wine and Roses" libation, mix with a new to town young couple with their own veiled tragic flaws for an evening and watch the vitriol flow...

 

Outstanding script, lighting and photographic direction combined with the all too real performances by the actors result in this iconic film.

 

If you have never senn it or if has been some years since you last did- queue it up tonight (free on Amazon Prime).

With Robert Downey Jr, Sherlock seems to behave like an intelligent buffoon, and I just can't get rid of 'Iron Man' repeating at the back of my head. 

 

He used to be cool :(... I get Johnny Depp in my head ;).

I liked both of the new Holmes movies. Thought they were both well done with some intriguing directing and shot sequences (like the slow-mo mental fight plan shots). Rob does a great job overall IMO and jude mades a good watson. Nice spin on the sherlock story.

Yeah I'm not sure what people are complaining about either. They're meant to more Wild Wild West than the new Sherlock (which is the best show on TV, IMO).

Saw the new Bonds movie, Skyfall, over the weekend.  Pretty gritty for a Bonds movie, with some interesting action sequences.  They move away from the gadgetry of Bonds movies past and some of the campy tongue in cheek humor though.  Craig did a great job, though some of the dialogue was lacking.  7/10, not as good as Casion Royale for me, but worth a viewing in the theaters for the visuals.

Avengers - 6/10

I was totally in the mood for this, but wow, I don't understand the totally positive reviews for this. The acting is randomly bad. I think the only decent acting in it was from Robert Downey Jr and Mark Ruffalo.
Scarlett Johannson was wasted in her role here and I know she is a good actress (in other movies).

Can't believe how lame the story is. The special effects went from horrible to pretty good. Please tell me the budget isn't 200+ million.

Entertainment value is about a 6.5/10, so not bad. So many things were unintentionally funny, so that helps. I was thinking this was the dumbest movie i've seen in awhile and makes "Independence Day" look really intelligent. No kidding.
For pure, dumb entertainment, that movie has them all beat. Entertainment value is like a 10/10. The idea of hacking an alien's mothership using a laptop..in space is hilarious. I guess they used Alien Wi-Fi.

I hate to admit it, but during the end of this movie I wanted Godzilla to show up.

BTW this movie reminded me too much of "Crysis 2".

I was entertained by them, but I do see some validity to my uncle's argument that Holmes is supposed to be a cerebral character and not an action hero. I certainly don't regret watching them though.

Hellboy 2


10/10 Best of the year!

I was disappointed that everything came down to violence. The verbal sparring the characters did with each other on occasion was quite nice--and I really thought the final 'showdown' over that game of chess was going fantastically well--until it slipped into yet another generic fight scene. Violence obviously has its place in films and can be put to great use, but why set up such marvelous, witty confrontations only to have them slip into the same, boring fisticuffs sequences that we've seen against various mooks half a dozen times up to that point? I know I shouldn't expect more from a movie that isn't going to give me more, but I'm not going to lower my expectations, either. I was probably somewhat hindered by the fact that I had not seen the first Downey Jr. Sherlock film, and thus didn't entirely know what I was getting myself into.

+1 I agree that if the sinister mass-murdering bad guy was bored to death through a long boring game of chess this would have made it a much better movie than killing him with actual violence.


Edit: or better yet, perhaps an intervention by Watson and they could have reconciled their differences through communication... peace smily_headphones1.gifrolleyes.gif

Yeah, they're entertaining, but very action hero like.
