Young Sherlock Holmes & The Librarian & The Adventurer.

Well if you are a fan of the first two you might like the third, for those of you that haven’t seen any of these here is a little background. Three movies that have some Indiana Jones heart in them.
youngsherlockYoung Sherlock Holmes came out in 1985, this tale shows a different side to Sherlock with adventure and love in a mystery with his very young friend who will become Dr. Watson. Staring Nicholas Rowe and Alan Cox. thelibrarianquestThe Librarian is a series of TV movies staring Noah Wyle and came out in 2000’s. This is a group unlike Indiana Jones that searches for antiquities that may harm the world if it were not for the Librarians who go and find them and put them in a safe place. theadventurerThe Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, involves the sons of a antiquities agent and an Sherlock/Indiana Jones agent who is after the bad guys. Staring Aneurin Barnard from The White Queen he is one of the sons who searches for his brother who has been taken by the bad guys and helps find the Midas Box. Michael Sheen plays the agent with nine lives. Oddly enough most critics have rate all of these movies about the same. If your young or young at heart you should enjoy all of these. Not big budget but rather entertaining for a quite afternoon.

Simon Peg & Nick Frost: Hot Fuzz & The World’s End

hotfuzzHot Fuzz and The World’s End are two funny and connected movies. They are part of what has been termed the Cornetto Trilogy, which Shaun of the Dead is a part of. For those of you that don’t know what a Cornetto is, it’s a waffle cone ice cream. The films revolve around small garden communities and gags about jumping fences. Peoples names in The World’s End have royal last names and in Hot Fuzz have horror connotation last names. If you haven’t seen either of these it is worth watching along with Shaun of the Dead. Drinking and pubs are also part of this fun set of films.worldsend So have some fun, grab a pint of ale, or ice cream and enjoy the trilogy.

The Negotiator, Good not negotiationing on that.

negotiatorThe other night this movie was on really late and no matter how tired I was I couldn’t turn it off. It’s one of those that you may figure out who actually did it before the end but it’s hard to tear yourself away for the movie. Staring Kevin Spacey, Samuel L Jackson, David Morse, the late J.T. Walsh and Paul Giamatti among other actors that you will certainly recognize.
Here is a clip that may get you hooked.
