    Z for Zachariah 2015

    ★★½ Watched 28 Aug, 2015

    Had high hopes for this as I loved the book, but they were dashed very early on. So many good moments in the book are exorcised in favor of an invented love triangle.

    On second viewing, it's now a perfect film.

    Like firing skittles into your eyes for two hours.

    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows 2011

    ★★½ Watched 16 Dec, 2011

    Ritchie's rough edge, displayed previously in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, seems to be dulled in his Sherlock Holmes series. This second "romp" moves at an unforgiving pace, sadly lacking any danger or jeopardy in its many action set pieces, and whatever relationship was built between Holmes and Watson in the first film quickly dissolves into self-serving foolishness.
