I've got my tix for Iron Man 2 tomorrow at 11am -- very excited. Looks like a stylish blast of explosions and beat-downs. I'll probably thrown on the first film tonight for a little re-fresher.
I've got the Blu Ray of Francis Ford Coppola's latest film, Tetro, from Netflix. I have heard some good/interesting things about it.
I got a chance to see The Losers and it was exactly what I expected -- stylish, idiotic action with some witty one-liners (the script was co-written by Peter Berg) and some phenomenal, primary-color-saturated cinematography. Also, Jason Patric was f'ing hysterical as the bad-guy -- he looked like he was having way too much fun on that set. It's a shame that there won't be a sequel considering the terrible box-office receipts it brought in because the film sets itself up nicely for a follow-up.
Last weekend I finally watched Sherlock Holmes and I was pleased with it. It didn't reinvent the wheel but the chemistry between Downey and Law was crisp and snappy and Guy Ritchie's handling of the action sequences was predictably stylish and energetic. I'm also a huge fan of Mark Strong, who played the baddie in Sherlock, as well as the baddie in Kick-Ass and the upcoming Robin Hood and Green Lantern.
