movie talk: Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows

If you ask me, the loveliest thing about this movie is that no one pretends they don't know fans will be slashing these two all over the place. And yet, to the average viewer, it's just another bromance. Well, if by bromance, you mean the the kind where everything blows up, everyone gets shot at least once, and there are giant fish hooks and man on man waltzing. If you mean that kind of bromance.

So did I like it? well of course! Witty, fun, fascinating, especially listening to hubs beside me analyzing all the genius manipulating I was too busy watching the for Meaningful Gazes to notice. Oh! And the visual of where steampuk started. Yeah. That was pretty cool, too. And totally didn't hate the actual female love interests, either. Always love a good female role where the girl kicks ass and shoots a few baddies to boot. Even the genteel wife shot off a few zingers. No shrinking violet, she.

Hats off to another great, entertaining movie. I may not be terribly hard to please in this department, but hey, I wasn't in that theater alone, and hubs didn't complain. Must have been enough explosions to go around :D

I'm going to have to see this! I saw the first one, and loved it.

And I DO have to say Jude Law looks really, really good. Sigh.

*sigh* yeah, okay. I'll give him this one.... Lol!
Watched part of the first one on tv last night. Still trying to decide which one I like better, but ican see myself doing a Holmes and Watson marathon when they're both available on DVD....
