Review: About Time

Chick 1 says:AboutTime

Very excited about this time traveling romance from Richard Curtis and I was not disappointed

I love most of what Curtis has written.  Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually, the screen play for Bridget Jones’ Diary, even a lovely little episode of Doctor Who (which I secretly hope got him thinking about time travel for this one).  I knew he’d bring heartwarming humor, romance, and poignancy with just the perfect amount of British snark.

Review: Sherlock Holmes

Chick 1 says:sherlockholmes2

Merry Christmas to me!  Sherlock Holmes is out & it stars 2 very attractive men.  Hee, hee.

The Basics:  I’m assuming you know Sherlock from all the books, movies, and slew of cultural references (my favorite being “No s**t, Sherlock.”).  Here Guy Ritchie directs the latest update on the Victorian sleuth with Robert Downey Jr in the lead and Jude Law as Watson. Read more

I Can’t Wait: First Trailer from Sherlock Holmes

Chick 1 says:sherlockholmes

Oh joy!  The first trailer from Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes was released yesterday.  We already knew that this was not going to be your usual Holmes whodunit.  With Robert Downey Jr cast as Holmes, Jude Law as Watson, and Ritchie at the helm, this was going to be a grittier and probably funnier Holmes.  I was expecting something dark & brooding but with an underlying humor but after the trailer debuted at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin in March, the buzz said that this was more of a buddy comedy.  It is definitely very un-Holmes but I think it looks like fun.  It certainly may offend Holmes purists.  See for yourself.  Trailer will play with Terminator Salvation this weekend.  The movie opens Christmas 2009.
