So I haven't actually finished this movie yet, but it deserves a post already. That should tell you how awesome this movie is (at least so far... movies have an uncanny knack for disappointing me with their endings). Rachel McAdams plays Irene Adler. Now, not reading any of the stories about Sherlock Holmes and only having a vague description of who he is and what the story is about, I take Irene Adler as someone that Mr. Holmes admires greatly, and may even love. Her wit seems to challenge even Mr. Holmes.
No wonder I like her character so much. Wit gets me every time. So anyway, she's so ridiculously bad ass, and I say that because I really can not think of any other way to explain it. If I didn't like Rachel McAdams before, which I did, I definitely am in love with her acting skills now.
I guess the only thing I'm really not a fan of is the Blackwood, rising from the grave, black magic, stuff. I mean, maybe it's a traditional Sherlock Holmes story that I'm just not familiar with and perhaps I should read the books about him. The story behind what Holmes is solving is just not my cup of tea. Perhaps more on this subject will come when I finish the movie.
Also- Started the Godfather. Which in itself is ridiculously long, we'll see how THAT goes.
