I am not a movie man. I would much prefer to do something else. However, My wife loves a good movie, and so some years ago I agreed to sit and watch a movie 2 to 3 times a week with her. Some times we come across a good movie that has us talking about it for days, but most times, the movies are not that great for me.
So we have a list of movies to see. Shelock Holmes is one of them. I am even more curious now that the unofficial Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano has given an opinion of it. Their claim is that the movie is amusing but disapointing and that although it had a "hundred surprises in every scene, the way the character of Sherlock Holmes was deconstructed to become a member of the underground was perplexing."
"According to L'Osservatore, the Director's (Guy Ritchie) characterization of Sherlock Holmes can be summarized as “(he) jumps, flees and fights."
Avatar hasn't been given the thumbs up by the newspaper either. That movie I hope to see this weekend. I hope it is good.
