Sherlock Holmes
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is the first review I've done since April, so forgive me if I'm a little rusty.

Guy Ritchie did it again- another super awesome movie that didn't fail to tickle my movie lover bone. Except this was different than any other Guy Ritchie film I've seen: You can understand it the first time around. Easily earning a 100%, Sherlock Holmes is smart, witty, and exciting. Robert Downey Jr. pulled off the 18th century cocaine-using detective who is always there to solve the mystery. His sidekick and Detective-in-chief Watson (Jude Law) worked together to create a flawlessly co-dependent performance. The plot keeps you on your feet, with a new twist and turn every chapter. The end caught me offgaurd, with the biggest plot twist I've seen since M. Night Shalayman's "The Village". But unlike "The Village", Holmes powerfully delivers an excellent story and exceptional characters. Holmes may very well be my favorite movie of all time. In my top 5 at least.

Kick-Ass (2010)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Mathew Vaughn has done it again. Another great movie that he had a part in. This parody-esque comic book movie really met up with my expectations. I have to say, this is one of three Nicolas Cage movies that I actually liked. I am actually proud of him, like I would be proud if I had a retarded kid who made a C+ on his math test. I watch this movie, and it makes me want to be a fake superhero. With dead nerve endings, of course. The one thing I found wrong, though, was the fact that it seemed to revolve more around Power Girl than Kick himself. I gotta say, though, throughout the whole movie I kept a smile on my face. All in all, to be frank, this movie was... well, Kick A--.

Gran Torino
Gran Torino (2009)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Good Ol' Clint- Reprising his role as a rough, tough, easily-angered character in a movie that I recently regarded as a dang good movie. Gran Torino. Of course Clint Eastwood is bad to the bone in this movie, as he is in every movie, but this was at a different level. He played a believable role- not in the wild west- as a widowed veteran who really has nothing to look forward in the day but make racist comments at his neighbors, who he just happened to fight people of their same race in the war. I actually found this movie to be quite hilarious, with the several racist comments and dry humor. His rough-tough-don't-mess-with-me-attitude still holds true to Clint Eastwood in this movie.

It also tells a rather tragic telling of his relationship with his family. I quite enjoyed some scenes where he is with his family, when they buy him gifts, such as a telephone with EXTREMELY large numbers, (and this is one of my favorite quotes from a movie: Daughter in law to Clint: "It's a telephone." Clint to Daughter in law: "I can see that.") and they also got him a "gopher" so that he can reach things without getting up. I feel as if it is showing the depressed side of Clint, which is captured in this scene.

Eastwood not only stars as Walter, but also directs. Eastwood can be a master director (Million Dollar Baby) and also direct mediocre ones such as Flags of Our Fathers. Personally, I like him more as an actor, because you can see what he is actually playing, instead of what he is trying to make someone play.

The story is all about "Chinks" (Hmongs) who move in next to him, and attract "Gook" gang members. Eastwood originally hates these people, as they hate him as well. Eventually the gangs try to recruit one of Clint's neighbor's children, whose entrance price is stealing Eastwood's prized Gran Torino. Eastwood, of course, gets pissed and creates a vendetta against the kid. The kid is then forced to make up for what he did, so Eastwood puts him to work. Eventually the kid grows on Eastwood, who then grows protective over him. The gangs are still trying to recruit him, who are angry that Eastwood is protective over the kid. The gangs get violent, and so does Eastwood.

I enjoyed this movie greatly. Despite its length, it is a great movie that I would recommend to any movie fan.

Clash of the Titans

Although it didn't quite follow the same storyline as the original, I still liked it quite a bit. The CGI wa excellent, although I didn't see it in 3-D format due to all of the bad ratings the 3-D format was recieving. Sam Worthington is one of my favorite actors, due to his awesome performances in a quite sucky Terminator Salvation, and also because of his awesome role in Avatar, one of my favorite movies of all time. In this, though, he kinda failed to live up to his other roles. Although he was the rough and gruff character he always plays, it almost felt as if something was missing from his performance. If a movie theater near you has this movie, I would go see it, but if it isn't in a theater close to you, wait to rent it. I guess you would have to see it if you were a die-hard fan of the original, but other than that, see it in theaters only if you are placed with a great opportune moment.
