Movie time


We went to the movies last night to shake off the craziness of the day (another story for another time) and chose the newest Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Noomi Rapace.

This is the first big Hollywood blockbuster for Noomi Rapace, who starred in the spectacular 2009 Swedish trilogy beginning with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” She owns that role and anyone who goes to see the Hollywood remake is wasting their time and money. Go to Netflix and get the original.

She also has a leading role in the upcoming Ridley Scott science fiction film “Prometheus” which is a kind of a prequel to Alien. It’s scheduled for release sometime this summer.

But I digress.

I think this, the second of the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies, is better than the first and well worth the price of admission. I can say no more.
