Sherlock Holmes was AMAZING. Neither of my parents like it, but well, my dad hates all movies and there wasn't enough pretty scenery for my mother since she doesn't watch movies for content, but only pretty pictures. Whatever. I thought it was brilliant. And wow. So. Much. Gay. Seriously. Friggin hilarious! Everyone did a fantastic job. Rachel McAdams was great, so was Jude Law, who I'm not usually a fan of. And then that one guy (one of the bad guys) just drove me crazy because every time he came on screen all I could think was 'MORDRED'. I'm hoping someone out there knows what I am talking about!
Anyway, brilliant movie, everyone should see it.
Also saw Princess and the Frog last week and loved it. I'm such a huge fan of old Disney and have been so horribly, horribly disappointed the past few years. But this one was right on track. Hand drawn and with music. Fantastic. And New Orleans made me homesick :) I enjoyed mixing it up with the art deco number and the jazz music. A bit different for Disney. The story was fairly obvious, the villain was terrifying, but all around a good Disney movie! The Prince confused me though. His accent sounded Spanish but he would occasionally throw out Russian phrases, was from the mythical Disney kingdom of Maldonia and has a Hindu name. I was perplexed. But another rec for anyone who used to enjoy Disney. It was cute.
And I'm going to see Avatar on Monday! Finally! No one I know has really had terribly awesome things to say about it, so I'm not going expecting much, but I'm sure it'll be very enjoyable.
Oh, and I also watched an old black and white movie tonight called 'It Happened at Sun Valley'. Stay away from that movie. I found it very offensive. And the 'lead' woman was a horrible, manipulative, obnoxious harpy. I was not hoping she would win to say the least. She infuriated me. She just wanted to get herself a husband so she could cook and keep house for him. So he finds someone, is amazingly deceitful in trying to actually 'compromise' herself so that his girlfriend would break up with him. It was a terrible movie. Not even the Glen Miller Band could save it.
Hope everyone had a fantastic day!
