    I actually liked the first movie and it featured a female anti-hero (I have to admit I had a crush on Scott Speedman because of Felicity so I’m a bit biased on this). But the producers of this franchise never bothered to make any effort other than to make it cheap and marketable. Its more frustrating because Hollywood already thinks that female led movies don’t make money. Underworld and Resident Evil forever dipped in schlock material just add insult to injury.

  2. “The creative team attempts to move the plot forward by constant meetings of people sitting and talking or standing and talking and tries to pass it off as compelling storytelling.”
    There’s a 1960s film, Crack in the World, that takes up an astonishing amount of time (given the Earth is quite literally in the process of splitting in two) of having worried looking men sit around a board table and discuss it. Or having the core triangle work out their relationship issues.

      It’s definitely possible to tell the story in that type of manner. A movie that comes to mind that I love if the Hateful Eight in which dialogue moves everything forward. But (thanks to Tarantino) the dialogue is so well-written that it’s very compelling. Blood Wars is so dry and unappealing that it’s very ineffective.

    I saw the first movie for the first time last year, and my first thought when it finishes was “how did this get a sequel?” Now there’s five of them, and from what I’ve heard, most of them are pretty much the same movie.

  4. Wow! Tell me how you really feel lol. I actually liked it. Better than the last few installments.

    • MovieBabble says:

      Lol. Well good for you that you enjoyed it! I would never yell at/ridicule someone for liking a movie that I dislike. That’s what makes movies fun!

      • Well it definitely won’t win any awards but I thought it was fun. What is impressive is that it’s been 14 years and Kate Beckinsale can still fit into that suit. Lol clearly she has a portrait of herself hidden away 😉

  5. Pretty much what I expected to see of this movie!

    Do you plan to watch the season 4 Finale of Sherlock in cinemas?
