* Movie Review *

Sherlock Holmes
It was fun and the chemistry between Robert & Jude is perfect. A little quirky, but it IS a Guy Ritchie film.
My rating - B

Another quirky film, although lush with visuals. Interesting premise, although executed oddly.
Couldn't miss a film about books, now could I?
My rating - B

  8. Fabulous picture! Happy New Year!!

  9. Gorgeous photo!

    I was wary of Sherlock Holmes ever since I saw the trailer. It's nothing like the Holmes of the book although I get that they were modernising it for the audience. I'll watch it to see the partnership of Jude and Robert and leave it at that.


  10. Happy New Year!

    Thanks for a year filled with cool links, great pics and encouraging advise. I hope 2010 is filled with joy and good health. Cheers!

  11. Webmaster, I love your site. Thank you sooo much for working on it.

  12. Here's to the best 2010 can offer! Happy New Year!!

  13. Loving your movie reviews. Great idea. We drove an hour to the movie theatre to go see Avatar, but it was sold out. Had to come home. Maybe try again in a few weeks. bummer.
