Thing for me is that SH tales are fairly sedate detective stories, not adventure/swashbuckling stories.
I expect that Poirot will be the next big screen experience...the dapper little Belgian detecive using his "little grey cells" to swing across yawning chasms, construct bombs and gunning down hordes of enemies while Captain hastings and Mrs Lemon back him up with RPG's and heavy machine gun fire...
(yes, I do view modern movies with suspicion and prejudice...especially when they start raping real classic tales and *********** all over the spirit of them to appeal to the brainless MTV generation)
Well, I watched a trailer...pretty much what I expected, loads of 'splosions and machine guns and general high octain stunty action that I simply do not associate with classic Holmes tales.
Goodfellas (9.5/10). ******' awesome! Joe Pesci is very hilarious in this movie. Unfortunately, he dies at the end. & RDN was/is great "as usual".
Great movie, indeed.

Watched National Treasure 2 today. It has more similarities with the first one than Hangover 2 has with the first Hangover. It was a very childish/na´ve movie that completely copied the first one but it was still highly enjoyable. Just like with Hangover, I enjoyed the first movie so I liked the sequel, as well.
I also saw 2012. It had SO much more potential. There was way too many 'random' clips about what was happening all over the world. It got better towards the end.
Lethal Weapon (7.5/10).
Ghost Rider: SoV (6.5/10).

Surpisingly decent movie when compared to the previous AVP pap. I enjoyed it a lot, actually had some of the feel of the original Arnie epic.
