Where Eagles Dare (to explain things)

Where Eagles Dare (1968) is a decent movie, if you’re patient.  It is very well-made and I love the environments, the story, and all the actors do a great job.  However, this is… Continue reading

The Final Saw (Until the Next One)

Saw: The Final Chapter (2010) or Saw 3D is the supposed end of the Saw franchise, and it dies with a paper thin plot and very stupid characters.  As with previous Saw films,… Continue reading

The Master (2012) on a Depressing Day

The Master (2012) is a movie starring Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, playing two very different men.  This movie is spectacular, but you need some patience.  The director Paul Thomas Anderson plays… Continue reading

Eye in the Sky (2015) – Have you seen this one?

Eye in the Sky (2015) is an Amazon Prime/Netflix special and it has some melodramatic, tear jerking scenes nobody can dislike.  This movie is about drone operations and their mission to assassinate some… Continue reading

The End of Sherlock Holmes

Ok so I’ve been pretty depressed over the last episode to Benedict Cumberbun’s Sherlock, because I didn’t enjoy the story, but I did start beaming and smiling at one particular moment, which was… Continue reading

How is Assassin’s Creed crap?

The reviews are right.  Assassin’s Creed (2016) is crap.  It’s a terrible movie.  Was this a quickie?  Or some rookie’s pet project?  How is this so bad?   There are some great people… Continue reading

Jeremy Brett versus Culverton Smith

I wonder if Benedict Cumberbun watched Jeremy Brett’s version of “The Dying Detective”, because it’s a good adaptation of the Canon.  There are small things changed for TV, but I’m guessing people are… Continue reading

Who is Sherlock’s sister? The Culverton Review

You know, we get over-the-top Sherlock Holmes where Cumberbun is more psychotic by the second, then we get this episode, which is even worse.  I actually thought it was decent in spots, but… Continue reading

What’s in the box? What’s in the envelope? Leaps of logic and assumptions in movies

Sherlock Series 4 Premiere: How much Canon can we reference?

I will say that the Sherlock series 4 premiere was pretty good, and any complaints I have about Sherlock Holmes being psychotic or the show becoming Mission Impossible really is nitpicking.  The first… Continue reading

Greatest Sherlock Holmes: Lady Carfax

I think this is the first really terrible episode done in the Brett series, which is partly the fault of the production and Conan Doyle himself.  As a story, The Disappearance of Lady Carfax… Continue reading

Star Wars: Rogue One Movie Review

Star Wars: Rogue One (2016) is a good movie.  It’s not a perfect movie and it’s not the best Star Wars movie ever made, and I’m guessing it’ll be forgotten about in about… Continue reading

Lonely Are the Brave (1962) is a Metaphor – Kirk Douglas is 100

Unforgiven was Clint Eastwood’s swan song for Westerns, but Lonely Are the Brave is the real metaphor for the confrontation between old and new.  The movie insists that the cowboy has no place in… Continue reading
