Oh man...its pushed to 2014?
I thought it was airing in 2013?
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).
Not to mention Benedict Cumberbatch is probably the most suitable actor for 'Sherlock', because of his looks and demeanor.
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 ;).
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.
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.
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.
Yeah, they're entertaining, but very action hero like.
