Deductive Reviewing

Sherlock series 4 was hearts wrenchingly beautiful. The messages, the delivery, the storyline and the acting were all flawless. Never once did I scream “BORING” or “NEXT” as I am wont to do when watching some series(TV shows) these days. I only wish it were longer but Moffat and Gatiss, the geniuses, take the whole “leave them wanting more” very seriously. I was riveted from start to finish of the series. The death of Mary was heartsbreaking. Eurus is such a complex but beautiful character who just wanted to play with her brother. Admittedly, the value and sense of self-worth Sherlock finally gained was amazing. We see a Sherlock who has grown and matured in a beautiful way because he had to. We see Mary as the genius she always was and her dynamic with Sherlock and Watson was a thing of dreams. I can honestly say that I cried for the confused and lonely child Eurus was. Sherlock finally remembering Lestrade’s (I’d say Greg but I don’t want to confuse anyone) name was a good touch. The Woman is still in the picture, yay.
Molly is such a beautiful and tolerant person. Sherlock finally showed everyone that beautiful soul of his.

Mycroft is SENTIMENTAL! He loves Sherlock and the rest of their family so much I think it scares him what lengths he’s willing to go to for them. That’s why he won’t let himself form any other emotional attachments. I think that John behaved badly. There was Eurus and also how he treated Sherlock when Mary died. Yes he was hurt but he gutted Sherlock, the one person who‘s capable of helping him heal properly. My roommate disagrees but that’s my opinion. He knows he can wound Sherlock like no other but he still carried on with it. For ages! I’m glad Mary set him straight and they could finally begin to heal together because Sherlock lost her too. Mrs. Hudson is my hero because she remained strong and she helped them heal. Mrs. Hudson is so cool and fierce!

AWESOME

There’s the beauty of family and friends that pulls you in and doesn’t let go. Unlike other series, there are no unnecessary details in Sherlock. In fact you have to be quick so you can pick up the clues as they are presented along the way. The best relationship in the series is Sherlock’s relationship with Rosie. It’s so beautiful! Sure Rosie has a relationship with John, Mary, Molly and Mrs. Hudson but her relationship with Sherlock is the best. Series four was torturously wonderful and I can only say “NEXT!” I can’t wait for series five. Finally, to all of you out there who need reminding, “KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF IT!” Ta!

It’s old but it’s gold

Dormammu, I’ve come to review.

So let’s talk about Doctor Strange. I thought Benedict Cumberbatch was flawless in that role and he perfectly captured the overly bloated ego that is Stephen Strange. Sorry, Dr. Stephen Strange. He also brought a bit of his personality to the role, thank you very much, his #Beyhive membership and the not actually having a love interest bit while still having that someone in his life. I couldn’t imagine anyone better for that role. When I heard they were making a Doctor Strange movie my first thought was “get Cumberbatch!” I decided to review this because it’s one of those movies I saw before getting a blog that just had me yearning for a blog. The acting was flawless many thanks. Benedict Cumberbatch(Dr. Stephen Strange) who took my breath away as always, Rachel McAdams(Christine Palmer) who never disappoints and keeps us coming back for more, Tilda Swinton(The Ancient One) who is timelessly brilliant and curiously effortlessly adaptable, Chiwetel Ejiofor(Modor) who keeps raising the bar and making me anticipate his next movie because I know he will surprise me, Benedict Wong(Wong, surprise!) who always makes me laugh with his kick-ass sense of humor(see what I did there?), Mads Mikkelsen(Kaecilius) who always royally blows the door off of the box when he clashes into action, and the rest of the cast were great! I personally can’t wait for Thor: Ragnarok (Nov. 5, 2017), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017) and The Avengers: Infinity War (2018). The cast and crew brought a movie to screen that restored my belief in MARVEL (I saw that picture of Cap saying “Hail HYDRA”). Keep it coming Cumberbatch. You’re makings every cumbercookie very proud. Scott Derrickson, you’ve outdone yourself. I would personally like the Eye of Agamotto so I can endlessly rewatch Doctor Strange and still have the time for a normal life. Making Dormammu howl in agony, such fun! Ta!
