Marvel Goes to hell...

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3if39271c89709c28e51aaec2525f7793b

Marvel bought out for 4 billion. Well, expect future Marvel movies will be more kid-friendly and therefore more lame. Not to mention the fact that they might find some of the darker comics too offensive. I guess that means no more stripper poles on Tony Stark's Private Jet.

Upcoming: Sherlock Holmes

I saw this trailer at the theater.


I'll go with Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined. When I heard Jude Law was going to be in it way back when, I thought ... He'd make a good holmes. Unfortunately he's watson. And it looks like Robert Downey Jr. is playing Holmes. And Holmes seems to have gotten much more physical and less mental. Watson seems less friendly and more agressive.

I'm not sure if I'll see this in the theatre. I guess I'll look for reviews before I commit. Currently it looks like it isn't rating more than a rental.

DVD Review - P.S. I Love You

Well, I finally got around to seeing this one. It was as good as, if not better, than the trailer made it out to be. A warning though ... It's a real tear-jerker. No, I mean that. Most tear-jerkers might have once or twice, but this one really gets you in the heart strings. Well, unless your not emotional, or have no sense of romance. Try it otherwise, you'll love it. And No, I haven't read the book.
