Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Yep, a screenshot of a bridge for the Sherlock Holmes movie. Why? I just love this industrial revolution scenario. Oh, and in school I drawn a lot of bridges under construction. Not sure why my teacher did not like it.
Anyway, that is a relevant part of the movie, but not (usually) the reason why you watch a movie. First, you have Iron Man… erm.. Sherlock Holmes that is fun, unlike the usual boring ones. This time Watson is the very boring guy. The story is acceptable. No big mysteries. Just the deductions are nice. Not excessive clever, just observation, mostly.
But there is a scene where I almost choke without air, laughing out loud and almost rolling on the floor Yeah, if you watched it, you guessed, the fight between Sherlock and that French dude, each one asking for some seconds, and the French dude flying with electric shocks. LOL!
Just in time for Season 5 that started a couple days ago. This season did not bring anything really new. I was expecting the Gloria being pregnant would make the series go in some other direction, but it did not happen. In fact, it were few the episodes related to that fact. Nevertheless, there are some good jokes, and it seems the stupid jokes that were very usual in the first seasons are mostly lost. Expecting the next season.
Crazy like hell. I end up without any good idea of what is this movie about. I read some comments in the Internets, but I’m mostly in the same position as before. You might ask why I watched it, and I might not be able to explain.
Point taken, although the check of virginity in the Miss Universe competition can be exaggerated, more and more, candidates should be carefully examined and any concurrent with any plastic surgery should be put aside. Yeah, it can be drastic, but otherwise we are electing the Miss Rich Universe.
Ghost Rider (2007)
I had seen parts of this movie before, in a party. Well, I watched parts of it, and I added it to the list of movies to watch. I liked it (9 in 10 in IMDB). Not because of Eva Mendes (gorgeous) or because Nicholas Cage is a great actor. Both help, but the special effects make the movie still more interesting. The story is nothing great, but is good enough. At the end, I love when an action movie has humor, and there are some great scenes. Soon news on the sequel.
A bunch of small and incomplete stories with, supposedly, some humor, glued together in a movie by a stupid plot. The movie sucks as a movie. A few of the stories are fun, or at least, let you give some laughs. For instance, the scene on the screenshot, or the new iBabe in black, to give customers a color choice, or even the “poop on me” story. Not that I liked every detail of those stories, but they have some fun. Also, the Tampax advertisement is great. I had seen it before in youtube, and though it was a true advertisement. Shame it isn’t. It is just, just great.
Kate Beckett and Richard Casltle
One more season is over. It seems that every season that comes passes faster, although they have the same number of episodes. Well, this season is different from the previous ones because this time we have Kate and Castle together, in a relationship. It is also different because… and spoilers follow… this season doesn’t end with Kate almost dead. Well, kind of.
The crimes are not very different from previous seasons. We just had the luck to know Castle father, and a few more steps on the Kate’s mother assassination.
Now, we are waiting for the next season, wondering what kind of direction it will take. Whatever comes, here I am to watch.
More of the same. Different jokes, new boobs, still focused on sex. But a fun movie. And if it wasn’t for the movie… Oh, my God.
If you like other American Pie movies, worth watching. Namely, if you watched them earlier so you can check some references to previous movies. I could detect a couple, but probably there are more. If not, well, it is a pair of fun hours.
Men in Black 3
My first comment after finishing this movie was meh… it is not truly bad, but it isn’t good either. There are some interesting scenes, and some humor, but the main story is too simple (even with that drama bit). The better scenes are in the beginning.. both the one I chose to post above (easy to notice why, I think) and other in a Chinese restaurant. The remaining movie isn’t that fun, just with some sporadic jokes. Voted 6 in 10 @ imdb.
Julie Bowen @ Modern Family
Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen are two good MILF reasons to watch this series. I confess I started watching it because a friend said it is very good. In fact, I can’t say it is that good (at least for first season). Somehow, I feel some actors to act a little strange. Also, the mockumentary format is not a thing I appreciate.
Nevertheless, there are funny episodes, and good jokes. I think the character I like most is Manny Delgado. Not only because he has my name (swapped), but also because he has the same problem as I have with girls. How I understand you, Manny…
Hannibal @ The A-Team
I do not remember well why I did not watch this series in the TV… I remember watching some random, only. So, I decided to re-watch it (the same I am doing with Mission Impossible, but there are others I will not watch again, because I watched them all, like McGuyver or the Knight Rider).
I think most people know this series, so, I will not talk much about it. Just to let you know I love when a plan comes together, and that you should be cautions when Hannibal is on the jazz…
