Movie: Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows
Like/Don't Like: Like. Yes, I remember that I liked it.
Who's with me that the world has been given a gift in a clean and sober Robert Downey Jr.? I feel like ever since he's cleaned up his act he's become a national treasure. Okay, so that's a stretch, but I really like him in everything he does. It's not like he's blessed with much of a range (he basically plays the same character in all of his movies) but he's fun to watch. And I've grown accustomed to Jude Law. And I like Sherlock Holmes in general, so this movie was a no brainer. The perfect Christmas break movie.
That being said, it's been a week since I've seen it and it has almost completely left my brain and the only thing that remains of it is the vague sense that I liked it. I liked that Moriarty was there and I thought their meet ups were clever. There were some very funny moments. And it moved along nicely. And while I'm not that much of a fan of gratuitous special effects, the slow motion stuff was pretty cool, even though I was over it long before it finished. I did have to cover my eyes a number of times because I'm a delicate flower and don't go in much for punching and shooting and stuff like that. But overall, it was fun.
