How I Spent My Monday
I went and saw Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows.
I was pleasantly surprised by a NEW Dark Knight Rises trailer. Which looks incredible. If it weren't for Anne Hathaway this might be the best movie ever. After that they gave us a The Hunger Games preview, which we're not going to say no to, but we've seen. It was still awesome and worrisome at the same time.
Then the movie started. It was great. What's weird is that I neither like it less nor like it more than Sherlock Holmes I. I like it exactly the same. Unfortunately, I didn't blog about the first one since it came out in 2009, and I started this afterwards. Isn't that strange?
Our villain, Jared Harris, was uber creepy. He was like Hannibal Lecter creepy.
Robert Downey Jr. would do this new thing, where he would turn around quickly and stand straight right before he went into a deep thought/realization thing. I liked it. It seemed to bring character and purpose to the moment.
Parts were predictable, (because I'm a movie genius,) and parts were not.
