Zodiac (2007)

(Written on 16. 9. 2014)

So I’m watching the movie Zodiac from 2007 where one of the main cast is Robert Downey Jr.

(Continued on 17. 9. 2014)

Well, seems like I stopped after just one sentence. Well, I guess the movie was way too captivating for me not to watch. I did finish watching it though. And I have to say that the second part was not really that interesting. Yeah, that morron was running here and there trying to find out who Zodiac was, but hey, I was watching it because of RDJ and in the second half, he has one flimsy appearance… Not cool at all!

But still, I did enjoy the movie. All the cyphers and codes and the hunt for the killer. And one more thing, Mark Ruffalo (is that how it’s spelled?), the guy who played Bruce Banner in Avengers, was playing in this movie. That’s another good thing. well, he’s one of those in whose movies i haven’t yet looked, but I will.

So, if you like crime and mysteries, I think you would enjoy the movie. It was not amazing, but it was pretty good, that’s for sure.

However, I can’t say I like the females that were in the movie. I mean, I can understand the guys had wifes, but seriously, I don’t much like women… There are exceptions – mainly from Marvel. But that’s another thing entirely.

Okay, I should probably stop, as I’m writing complete bulshit.

BBC’s Sherlock: The Blind Banker

(Written on 30. 7. 2014)

I just finished the second episode of this epic TV Series. And while it may be a bit hard to describe, I really did enjoy it. That is, apart from the “circus” scene, which was a bit boring. 

So, the gist of it is that Sherlock is hired to check some bank security or something as there was a message left in yellow paint. This leads to three serial murders in which the first two look like suicides – at first. But only to the detective inspector, who in this episode isn’t Lestrade and whose name I didn’t catch. So Sherlock sees through it and declares it murderes and then tries to decode the messages, which leads them to the circus and some weird chinese organization – Black lotus or something, that smugle things and sell them. 

This organization lost one of their items and are trying to get it back. In the end, they kidnap John thinking he’s Sherlock. And Sherlock decodes the message with the usage of the right book and then goes to save John’s but, who in turn saves the life of the girl being held hostage with him. 

And it all ends with them finding the item in question and revealing it’s value to the girl who it has been given to by one of the people who were murdered. 

Lastly there is this scene with the boss of the organization who is on video chat with – obviously – Moriarty, even though it’s not explicitly said or anything. She says she will not reveil his identity and he agrees she wont and then she’s shot – probably by a sniper of some kind.

 

And that’s the end of the episode. 

I have to say I enjoyed it, even though the first one was better. Somehow lighter and funnier. I’m gonna be watching the rest soon, but probably not right now, I like to have a bit of time between the episodes, and in the meantime watch SHIELD or something similar. 

As for SHIELD, I will probably not write about it. Or, if I will, it will not be detailing every single episode, as I’m already on episode 12 or something like that. I might write something about it when I’m donen with it, but I’m not making any promises. 

 

Well, there is one promise I will make, annd that’s that I will post here more often. And if I have nothing to write, I will at least post some of the photos I have in my folder that are yet to be published. 

See ya soon!

BBC’s Sherlock: A Study in Pink

(Written on 29. 7. 2014)

Yesterday I started watching BBC’s Sherlock. For second time, but last time, I only got as far as the first episode of second season. So I’m watching it all again and will continue with all seasons. The first episode was the Study in Pink. I saw both versions. The “unaired pilot epiosde” and the actual episode that is like 80 minutes long.

It all starts with John moving in with Sherlock and then they are dragged into a case of serial suicides that are actually murders.

It all starts with Lestrade informing them (Sherlock) of another of the murders and they then follow him to the crime scene where Sherlock does his deduction thing and after that leaves in search of a pink suitcase. After that he texts John who is in the meantime kidnapped by Mycroft.

And after saying it will be dangerous, John comes and they end up chasing a taxi through London. Of course that doesn’t go that well, even though they do catch it. The one thing it does solve is John’s psychosomatic (did I spell that right?) limp. After that, Lestrade barges in on a drug search or something and they end up tracking the victim’s phonne.

Sherlock then walks out and gets into this cab that is driven by the murderer. They end up in some place with long tables (I think they said something about it being a college or something similar). There, Sherlock faces of with the murderer in a game. Two pills, one kills and the other does nothing. And only the cabbie knows which is which. It’s up to Sherlock to chose, but it’s interrupted by John at the last moment, as he shots the cabbie.

Whith his last breath, the cabbie reveals the name of the mastermind behind the crime, even though it was the cabbie who did it. The mastermind’s name is Moriarty.

After that Lestrade arrives and Sherlock realizes that it was John who shot the cabbie and the two of them leave while laughing.

Before they can leave completely, they are intercepted by Mycroft, who is Sherlock’s brother and the two Holmses argue a bit. After that the episode ends with Sherlock adn John leaving. Probably in the direction of 221 B Baker Street.

This episode is good. I like it a lot. I think it’s one of the lighter ones, but I can’t really judge as I only saw a few so far.

I will post updates on all the episodes as I see them.

I also promise to write more. I don’t like how I’m not adding anything and therefore I will write more. I don’t know how often I will add something, but I will, I promise. I will never abandon this site for good.
