A Couple of Fun Movies!!

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I do thank you so much for you kind comments and emails!!!!  They really make my morning and warm my heart....  although not cold but any stretch of the imagination it is windy and cool.

I think today I want to talk about couple of really fun films I saw.  Since I am stitching on exchanges at the moment and so no snaperoos of them.

They were both Netflix Pic's - the first I got over the weekend - "Sherlock Holmes" - 2009 -


This first film stars Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong and Eddie Marsan. I wasn't too sure I would like this film, but after a few minutes I was sucked into the whole thing.  I found myself more than once just engrossed in the story and just the whole look of the film!!

Then last night I got "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" - 2011 -


Reprising their roles were Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams and Eddie Marsan.  I am often leery of sequels, but I enjoyed this as much as the first....  and hope for a third film in the series!!  I won't give away any of the story in either film, but it does keep you guessing right up to the end.  Each film is about 2 hours long with lots of visual delights - occasionally the fight scenes drag a bit... but that's what there is a fast forward button for!!  I would totally recommend either film.

That's about it for today sports fans!  Thanks again for stopping by, do stop again.

Take care,
edgar

I'm a sucker for any Sherlock movie where Watson is not a fool. These were fun. The homage to the Jeremy Brett Sherlock opening was a lovely touch and from that point on I was a fan.

John & I loved the first one & we have the second one waiting to be seen : ) We only recently started watching Sherlock Holmes movies. There were quite a few of them made over the years! The old Basil Rathbone film (Hound of the Baskervilles) whetted our appetites for more : )

We absolutely loved the first Sherlock Holmes movie! I really want to see the second one but we haven't yet. Sometime soon hopefully!

I enjoyed the second one more Edgar, I don't know why but I just thought it was better overall. Two good films though, both fun to watch.

I really enjoyed the first one - and have been waiting for two to hit NetFlix. Thanks for the heads up!

I´ve seen these films, too, and they are just great! The second one was even better than the first.
Your ATS looks stunning -keep up the good work. :)

I am with you, Edgar, I love both of these films. Have you seen the TV version?? It is done in todays world - I liked them also, they were on PBS.

I liked the first better than the second, but I am a HUGE fan of both. And you simply MUST track down the current BBC incarnation, "Sherlock", starring Benedict Cumberbatch...divine!!! I hope the upcoming CBS version with Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, Elementary, is good as well!!

I loved both of these movies too :) The BBC version of Sherlock is quite good too!

I watched the first Sherlock Holmes twice. I love Robert Downey Jr. and he and Jude Law work well together. The second one I may watch this weekend. Come on weekend!

I enjoyed both those movies as well. I love a non-bumbling Watson. RDJ did a great job as Holmes as well.
