    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Apr, 2012

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A lot of fun, but messier than the first, and I was greatly disappointed by the death of Irene Adler, as she was one of my favourite elements of the franchise.

  • Love & Other Drugs

    Love & Other Drugs 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Mar, 2012

    Cute and fun and predictable, but still: Anne Hathaway. I am always charmed by her, and whatever good-girl image she had at the start of her career is certainly gone by the end of this film.

    Much better than expected. Cute, funny, with Thomas Haden Church as an unexpected bright spot.

    Not amazing, but as other have said, better than it had any right to be. I'm a sucker for a boxing movie, and despite all the science fiction trappings, this is essentially Rocky with a father/son relationship in place of the romance. The performances are cheesy, and so is the writing, but somehow it all comes together to have the same highs and lows of any other inspirational sports movie.
