All Set for a Game of Shadows with Sherlock Holmes

As promised, this blog is going back to it’s blogger roots and will be doing more product features, movie reviews and the like. My yoga and other self-discoveries have now found their homes in their own respective niches so I from now on, I will be a little more true to the tagline of this site…life’s hits and misses as blogged by yapatoots 🙂 I hope to see you here more often!

Anyway, to get the ball rolling, let me start off with a little feature on the upcoming Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The other day I got to catch the screening of the flick and it was such a great way to start of the year! From the very beginning all the way to the end, I was literally at the edge of my seat with all the heart-pounding action. Seriously 🙂

The movie, which is set to open in Philippine theaters tomorrow, January 8, brings the dynamic tandem of Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, respectively. Their chemistry on screen and comedic timing really brings such fun to the movie!

The movie takes viewers back to old time London with Holmes and Watson teaming up again to unravel another mystery as he tries to put together pieces of a puzzle that seemingly is tied to his greatest foe, Professor James Moriarty. The story then takes him from London to France, Germany and on to Switzerland. At the cusp of the modern age, the story also taps into the emergent industrial revolution and modern war weaponry.

Besides Downey and Law, Rachel McAdams likewise reprises her role as Holmes’ love interest,  Irene Adler. The film also features Jared Harris as Professor Moriarty, Noomi Rapace as the gypsy Simza, Stephen Fry as Mycroft, and Kelly Reilly as Mary, John Watson’s wife.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is directed by Guy Ritchie and is released by Warner Bros. Philippines.
