New Segment: Quick Movie Reviews

So as I'm sure you're aware by now, I love to watch movies, though I don't have nearly enough time to write reviews about each one I see. Therefore, I'm creating another new segment wherein I feature several reviews of movies, both old and new.Before I get into my first lineup, I'll introduce you to my rating system. It's quite simple, and almost doesn't need an introduction, but here goes. The rating system is on a 1-10 scale, 1 being a terrible movie, not worth seeing and sure to make you spew your last meal, 10 being a true work of art, a masterpiece in all realms of film, characters, visuals, and story.

So without further adieu, here's my first lineup of reviews.

Clash of the Titans
: A remake of the 1981 film of the same name, Clash of the Titans is a tale of Greek mythology, and while it has its moments, primarily in its action sequences, the film fails to deliver a compelling story. In addition, beyond the main character of Perseus, Titans doesn't have much depth to its characters.

Rating: 6.5 (Better than average)

DVD Review:

Sherlock Holmes
: Staying true to the Holmes stories and portions of its canon, Sherlock Holmes comes with plenty of laughs, character development and action. Its portrayal of the relationship between Holmes and Watson took center stage, creating a great comedic atmosphere throughout the duration of the film.

Along with the wonderful visualization of 19th century London, Holmes comes with plenty of surprises and portrays Holmes in a way true to the books and short stories. The movie itself seems to literally have come off the pages of one of the many Holmes stories

Rating: 7.5 (Close to excellent)


  1. I haven't seen either of those movies. I figured the Remake of the Titans wouldn't be very good anyway.

  2. Indeed. If you've already seen the original, there's not much going for the remake.
