Finally! Got around to seeing 2 movies I’ve been waiting for and let me just say- Ohhhh, both were well worth the wait.
Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but he is still an actor who can keep your eyes riveted to the screen and right on him. Call it tunnel vision for me, lol. I watch his every move.
He’s matured, aging gracefully and oh so handsomely as well as still kicking ass!
The plot was not what I expected and a tad overlong, but enjoyed it nonetheless. Great action scenes, humor and the cinematography was fascinating. Nice to watch a film without all the excess cgi & gadgetry.
Where do I begin?
Loved Guy Ritchie pre-Madonna and love him even more post-Madonna. His direction is awe-inspiring!
This 2nd look at Holmes & Watson was a rollercoaster with spot on acting, splendid dialogue, action, edge of your seat guessing, the humor ~ effortless and almost seamless.
The plot- OMG! We wanted to remain to see it again. The games of wit and turnabout were intense! The race to beat Professor Moriarty was breathtaking.
Both films are a must if you can.
Sorry but did not get a chance to see The Immortals nor 11-11. Will catch those on DVD.
However, looking forward to seeing the final Dark Knight with Bale. Trailer looks ok, not crazy about Hathaway as catwoman. I’m a stickler for Michelle Pfeiffer whom my brother said was even more outlandish than the version Hathaway will portray. But what do you expect from an art critic?
What I can’t’ believe is that they are making Thor 2.
American version of writer/journalist Stieg Larsson’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo– I cringe at going to see this for fear of disappointment. *Spoiler alert* stop reading now if you’re a fan of this film: Surprising twist, its playing now and the main stars of the original are in the movies above. Mikael Blomkvist (actor Michael Nyqvist) is in MI: Ghost Protocol and Lisbeth Salander (actor Noomi Rapace) is in Sherlock Holmes.
