King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" features several nicely-crafted scenes of the legend, including the sword in the stone, Arthur wielding the famous sword, Excalibur. Even the round table is set in place near the conclusion of the movie. The shadow world Arthur enters is very vivid and stands out. [...]

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

The filmmakers do a nice job in recreating Victorian England. The sets including the train stations and carriages and homes and are all period and carry the viewer back to this historic time, namely 1891. Unfortunately, the movie caters to modern audiences, meaning the literary hero Holmes is [...]

Contagion

When the movie starts with Day 2 the first thing you think is: why not start with Day 1? Well, without plot spoiling I will say that the movie eventually gets to Day 1 in a rather interesting place in the film and it explains how everything started, the deadly virus that is. So the movie jumps [...]

Sherlock Holmes

In this version of the exploits of the famous detective and his partner we find a much more down to earth and vulnerable Sherlock Holmes. Action and adventure abound in this fast-paced film. We learn about the private lives of the two colleagues (Holmes and Watson) created by Arthur Conan Doyle. [...]

The Holiday

Unfortunately this intelligently written romantic comedy missed the mark with its inclusion of so many sexual situations and references. It was a treat to see Jack Black playing a sensitive role and almost shocking that the only f-bomb in the movie was NOT uttered by his character. With a playing [...]
