A Study in Terror

By no means a great Sherlock Holmes film but entertaining enough. John Neville as Holmes comes across as a bit camp at times. I found it more interesting for the famous actors, notably Judi Dench and Barbara Windsor, that had very small roles.

I really enjoyed this. I was never totally sure where the plot was going, easy to guess certain things but not everything. There are some silly moments, how many time can someone get shot in the chest and still be alive? Even if only for a few seconds. Keanu Reeves is very good in this, someone you wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of.

Full Metal Jacket

Excellent film. The first half ideals with turning the raw recruits into marines. Lee Ermy is superb as the drill sergeant, he has some classic hilarious lines. There are a couple of brutally shocking scenes in this part of the movie. The second half follows one of the recruits in Vietnam, there is a time jump which could be anything from a few months to a couple of years. Vietnam starts off by looking preferable to basic training, our recruit is having a good time as a reporter. This changes when he is sent into the battle zone. Most Vietnam war movies have the action set in the jungle but this is set in urban areas with bombed out buildings. Even if you don't like war movies this is well worth watching.
