Okay, so sooner or later, awards season will be upon us. Ya know, the Oscars, the Golden Globes, blah blah blah.... And there's one movie I feel needs to win, or at least get some nominations. Thor! Just kidding! Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows!
Why? Well I'll tell ya why!
- The Story. It's just plain awesome. Even better than the first. And the ending is pretty cool, too. I won't give much away. But at first, you'll be like: "No, that's not how they're going to..." Then you'll be like, "Wait, they're going through with this?" Then at the end you'll probably be like "YAY!" And it leaves things open for a sequel. Let's just leave it at that.
2. Robert Downey Jr. He knocks it out of the park again reprising his role as Sherlock Holmes. He won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy Or Musical for the last one, so let's hope he goes two for two. And maybe get an Oscar nom. Please?
3. The Music. After Danny Elfman, I think Hans Zimmer's probably one of my favorite movie music composers. And the soundtrack for this one shows why. It's pretty cool. It fits the movie so well. I think I might ACTUALLY get the soundtrack. Hopefully this year it gets something for the soundtrack. (I admit last time I pulled for Up, 'cause, you know, it was the only animated movie up for the nomination, and was a good movie, too, in it's own right).
Here's a sample:
Anyway, hopefully it gets some awards, because seriously, this was an AWESOME movie. And I want to see nice things happen to it. It's getting a sequel, so come on!
That is all.
