Usually I’m pretty picky about movies. I’ll just say it, I’m kind of a snob. I am incredibly rarely seen at a Regal cinema and most of the films I see at the Belcourt are the older films they show. I’ll be the first to admit that I often miss seeing really good movies in theaters because ewww it’s a blockbuster/remake.
However, I have a massive soft spot in my heart for Robert Downey Jr.
That’s why Sherlock Holmes was one of those few times I dished out $10 to see a big blockbuster movie, and would you believe this, I absolutely LOVED it.
There’s action, mystery, Robert Downey Jr., it’s just a really good, fun movie. Is it a cinematic masterpiece? No, not at all, but it’s a blast almost from start to finish. Sherlock Holmes fans might not love it, but someone looking to be entertained for the evening is unlikely to be disappointed.
Speaking of wanting to be entertained, you’re in luck! Sherlock Holmes is this week’s installment of Movies in the Park, and it’ll start tonight at sundown. You’ll want to get there early because the police will be there keeping you safe by monitoring how many people enter the park, so entrances will be blocked. Probably. But you’ll be safer! Huzzah!
Enjoy your terribly enjoyable action mystery.
