Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty. The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

Captain America The First Avenger Movie Review

Friday, July 22nd, 2011





Stronger and faster too! This has been an over the top summer movie season, easily one of the best in recent years. Blockbuster after blockbuster, this has been a very entertaining time at the cinema and it isn’t done yet per this next blockbuster. I honestly did not think this would carry the weight of an Iron Man or Thor or even Hulk. For starters, he doesn’t quite have the powers or abilities that these others do. The previews didn’t seem all that exciting either so I was not expecting much. Boy is it good to not expect much cause many times you are delighted with what you get. This movie blew me away with its simplicity and straightforwardness. This one really looks like a comic book come to life. The 40s look was impeccable, the story was just right, the cinematography was exceptional, the action was sharp, and the special effects were about as good as anything else you’ve ever seen.
