Shadowy Games

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Last night, my friend and I took a trip to the theatre to see the new Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. It was as I excpected: superb, and although lacking that tasteful seasoning of sherlock that was so much in the last movie, I enjoyed it as much as I expected I would and is definitely worth the watch.

I love that theme music dont you?

And the whole movie I felt something tapping me on my shoulder and ah ha! I figured out what it was. I found a match! A pair! I was so happy to have seen it.. these two could really be sisters..

I think its rather ironic myself… but please, tell me Im not the only one who sees it!

So, yes, Sherlock Holmes, although told to us by Fandango is rated So-So, I have to disagree. Its rather enjoyable and just as whitty as the last. Sequels tend to have negative effect, and being truthful, yes this one could go either way, but I think its had a more positive effect in light of the first. Its a different feel, because of the different plot, but I absolutely loved it.

Another look alike pair! Father and son?

Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher

And as I was looking for pictures online I saw that I was not the only one who noticed this.. Conspiracy? But really look how much they look alike. Its a little scary.

Today and Tomorrow.. (Especially when Today is Turkey Day!)

So I must, must, must be done apologizing by now for posting so darn late in the evening and never posting well… at all! Its quite a bad habit I’ve attempted to break only a few times and as you can see each time was a large bombing least of all..

But since Im up so late I might as well admit now that Im probably not meant to get much sleep at night at all! [Happy Thanksgiving by the way]

So a few movies Ive been watching lately…

Mentionable?: Twilight [newest one out in theaters] and that would be Breaking Dawn Part 1 (so Ive been told…)

I went to see it in the Cinema with my friend Annie (Shes quite a cutie- see below red head)

Image

and of course I was curtious and said I was very excited (which I actually was- for the record..) but did lie perhaps in the fact that I did say I quite enjoyed it (it really was very.. interesting). The only thing I think I might have received from the whole ordeal (it was $5 Tuesdays.) was the acting which was quite worthy of an applause. They were very genuine I would have believed the whole story.. If I hadn’t already seen a bit more attractive side of Robert Pattison in Water For Elephants (2 Thumbs up). So that by far does indeed end my little Rabbit Trail. NOW onto the more notable movies of my week.

THE BEACH. (Cant you just hear Rowan Atkinson from Mr. Bean’s Holiday saying that over and over in your head? I can.)

Anywho, I think It applicable to say that The Beach [Leonardo Dicaprio, Daniel York, Virginie Ledoyen, and Tilda Swinton)] was %100 on that good movie track, and does indeed receive 5 stars every watch in my book! Great way of speaking; the communication via Leo was amazing and It made me want to cry, write and think all at the same time; so I did. Captions! (VIA IMDB) Oh the 2000’s- how much I dont miss you is seen all too often.

And moving right along…
TWO documentary-reenactment-but-fairly-good-movies did I watch this week! And I am proud to say so!
First: Downfall via Netflix- which I purchased a subscription with recently and I highly recommend!
This one was fairly good and I really enjoyed the clear amount of effort put into the whole thing. Mind you, It is a foreign film so side effects may include dreaming in German afterwards.
The plot line was clear and tear jerking. One of those that makes you really question reality. Although most of the movies I watch nowadays are.. (pictures via Picassa/Google)
ImageImageImage
IIt truly is worthy of all those awards its winning. Truly a beautiful film based on Hitlers last 12 days on earth.
Second: The Diary of Anne Frank (2009) 
Truly a definite tear jerker, it stopped my heart but kept it beating. The sweet girl, bless her heart. Watch the thing then go on and research pictures of each of the people online and just sit there in awe. This is definitely one Id recommend. Its the most simple, innocent films Ive ever seen that made a crater sized impact on my heart as Anne Frank always does. It is all too real- and not to make the whole thing into a drama because as you can imagine the genuine reverence I have for the story, but to see it through modern eyes, this film does a lovely job of portraying this dynamic.
ImageImage
Comparison Worthy? I think yes.
Image
Image Sweet boy, in the movie, he was..
And last but certainly not least, and most recent at that was
The Edge of Love- Keira Knightly & Cilian Murphy!
Im not going to spoil the ending as I want to so badly, but I must say, you are not disappointed. Because halfway through I was so tempted to turn the darn thing off! It was a brilliant show I say! but really it comes a point in some films where I say: Lovely picture, sweet mother, but please have some decency and have some mercy for the people watching!
But finally in the end… well It works out Ill have you know. And I have some lovely screenshots for you!! Absolute best!

Something Like Nothing.

There are always people we are going to tilt our heads skywards for. Whether we are in sleep in jail, on a couch, or in a full King sized bed on a lone Island that belongs only to yourself and the person sleeping beside you, there is always going to be somebody, whether we love them or not, we are going to do something of the greater advantage for. That sort of terminology may come across as rather intimate to you, but I don’t only speak of our childhood leaders, close friends, or our grandmothers who beat colon cancer. No, the sort of picture I am wanting to paint for you is that distant person you wished you could have been. The person some may put on a pedestal or more so a piece of poster on their ceiling.

Inception, Blood Diamond, The Departed

'Im just starting to scratch the surface of what makes me happy..'

For me, one person I do look up to a large deal is Leonardo DiCaprio. Cheesy? You may think so but rather remember what I am asking you to think for: yourself. So go on and as I ramble, think this for your equal; So yes, to me as an actress, artist, visual idealist, perfectionist, dark and literal pessimist, and cinematography aspirer, I do indeed lift my chin to this man. He has accomplished so much in his 36 years and above being nominated for a Distinguished American Award, he has paved the way of stardom from his childhood Basketball Diaries, teenage years of Romeo + Juliet, and now to Inception: Leo has brought forth a new definition to the American Actor I can say we are all proud of. That, bloggers, is perhaps the only reason I would be proud to call myself an American for: Is to comparingly utter that that little sliver of realism does connect me to such a business man.
So yes, besides anticipating J. Edgar coming our way, I have mentioned Leonardo to show you the fact that despite all the other Americans crowding around my computer screen this moment, he may be perhaps one of the few I can say really deserves a well worked for (and well enjoyed on my part) R-E-S-P-C-T.
Who else might top this list of mine? Im sure you don’t care for my list too much, but I do enjoy discussing topics of people deserving of minute and blog worthy praise, so I will continue.
