Inspector Lestrade after newlywed Emelia Ricoletti, having apparently killed
herself in public, murders her husband Thomas in front of witnesses before
vanishing. Some months later Holmes is approached by Lady Carmichael, who tells
him that her husband Sir Eustace has been threatened by Emelia, who then
seemingly does away with him. With an intrusive Moriarty crossing him, Holmes
attempts to solve the enigma, with unexpected help from Watson’s wife Mary and
evidence of a conspiracy involving half the population of the country.
stupid since we’ve had two networks constantly replaying all three series for
the last 3-4 years. Yet this was not shown at christmas (as it was constantly mentioned as a christmas episode/movie)and I had to track it
perfect in the roles, but this movie made me bored. It jumps back and forth
from the end of the last series when he was being flown off for jail after
shooting that guy after finding out Mary was a crim (too long to go into in
detail) so it made it confusing. Basically, he took drugs and had a weird dream
so it made it all rather disappointing.
I remember thinking I wanted to watch this when it came out but I didn’t realise it was made back in 2007.
What you think is going to be a scary movie is to a degree. While it had me jumping at certain points through it, it also had me scratching my head as it jumped around.
One minute you think he’s out of the room then you find he’s really not. I don’t think it gave a reason for being haunted, and Samuel L Jackson does what he does best in movies. Plays the dude that tells you you’re a stupid bat shit crazy mother fucker but lets you do what you want and you have to deal with the consequences.
John Cusack does what he does best. Plays an author (as he did in 2012 my fave disaster movie) who has serious issues and an ex-wife and kid. The end was surprising, and a little freaky, but it’s worth the watch if you’re into horror.
I give it 8 out of 10
Now I didn’t think I had seen this movie, and I still don’t think I had until this week, but there is something very familiar about parts of it. I can swear I have seen parts of this movie in other movies.
It scared the bejesus out of Stephen King, who wrote the short story 1408 is based on, but I didn’t find it particularly scary. Yes there were parts that made me jump and my heart race, but then there were parts that were, get off the floor you stupid bitch and do something.
The story was a bit lopsided. I don’t think the reason for the weirdness was told except for the fact Tom Hiddleston’s character had married a few women for their money and still lived in the family manor with his sister who he was also fucking and that the sister was bat shit crazy and when she was fourteen killed the mother with a knife to the head.
Weird shit this movie and not all that scary.
I give it 6 out of 10
I finally got to watch The Man From U.N.C.L.E over the summer holidays, a good copy that is and not a dodgy version online, and I gotta say it was actually quite good.
It wasn’t the best movie ever, but if you love action movies, or movies based on tv shows, which there are a tonne of, and both Henry and Armie have been in movies made from tv shows (Superman and The Lone Ranger which was a good movie too), then this is a good movie to watch for a few hours.
With an appearance by Hugh Grant, the movie goes on a tad too long, but there’s plenty of action and double crossings, plus some fun comedic parts thrown in.
The one thing that irked me was Solo was supposed to be this big professional spy, yet he drank the drink. Don’t you know you never drink a drink your enemy offers you!
As for Henry and Armie, aren’t they disgustingly good looking!
And I mean disgusting, just look at how disgustingly good looking they are…
Just too, too disgusting. Oh, way too disgustingly good looking…yes…way too good looking to look at…way to good looking….
Here’s the trailer just so you can see how disgustingly good looking they are in the movie…
Because I’m bored with it!
How many zombie bites and neck ripping can one take? It’s never going to change, coz, duh, they’re in a zombie apocalypse, and it will never change because Rick keeps ballsing everything up and people die on his watch, and others will always come along to force their power over them.
I think I’d rather read a synopsis every week like I do with Bold & Beautiful. Really, who can be bothered watching B&B any more?
How many more people will be stupid and deserve to be bitten? How many more people will die? How many more people will come along and kill or be killed?
Isn’t all rather boring now?
Ugh! I’m over it. Might still watch Talking Dead though!
