*******www.innovativecommunications.tv Robert Downey Jr. is back again as Sherlock Holmes, and this time he’s up against his most fiendish challenger, Professor Moriarty. I’m Keith Kelly, and my review is coming up right now. Guy Ritchie is again directing the world’s most famous sleuth-first brought to life in Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, and then on stage and on screen. Just incase you haven’t seen Ritchie’s first film-this is not your grandfather’s consulting detective. In this rendition, the emphasis is first on action, and second on the analytical observations. Like most sequels, just about everything is amped up. More fine-tuned is the relationship between Holmes and Watson-played again by Jude Law. They bicker, fight, insult and support each other with great vigor-in ways only best friends and partners can do. They are one of the best on-screen duos since Redford and Newman, and by themselves make the flick worth watching. Jared Harris is impeccable as Professor Moriarty-an intellectual equal of Holmes who uses his powers of genius for evil instead of good. Some of the best scenes in “A Game of Shadows” involve the mental duels between Downey and Harris, which are played with just the right level of one-upmanship. There are also three women roles, but they are mostly involved to forward the plot, and don’t add much to the story. The film involves Holmes trying to get to the bottom of the world-changing scheme that Moriarty is putting into place. The plot is a bit more coherent and straight- ahead than in the first film, but still has a bit too much nonessential filler, and not enough mystery. It’ s also way too “elementary” for a Sherlock Holmes tale. Sorry-couldn’t resist. In between the detective work is lots-and I mean LOTS of action-fist fights, machine gun and canon battles and more. The clashes are shot with director Ritchie’s signature style, and are a thrill to watch. Once again we are treated to an inside look at the way Sherlock intellectually breaks down a battle. I know this amped up version is an affront to those who enjoy the much more cerebral original books. I’ve read all the stories, and have seen many of the screen adaptations. My all-time favorite Holmes is still Jeremy Brett from the BBC series-in my mind he was the closest in spirit, looks and brilliance. Still, the combination of Robert Downey and Jude Law, gorgeous sets and costumes, and impressive visual flair, make it a fun romp at the theatre. I give “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” the grade of “B”. I’m Keith Kelly. Like to get your business on the map with online video, but don’t know where to start?

The master of the respectable and honored Iron Flag Clan is murdered by the mysterious Spearman, an assassin hired by the elder brother of the clan Chow Feng. He takes over the Iron Flag and uses it for immoral purposes. However, in order to cement his position, Chow must kill the virtuous brother Lo; so he hires the nefarious Ten Killers of the Underworld, who team up with The Spearman in order to defeat these masters of death and exact suitable revenge. What unfolds is a well-paced and vibrant battle of wits and weaponry between Chow and the Lo/Spearman, all of which is kept under Chang Cheh's traditionally meretricious control.

Since everyone likes this video so much, I've decided to offer a download link. Here it is: decided to take a break from making Kingdom Hearts videos and create my first ever AMV! I was inspired to create one after seeing dozens of poorly done AMVs of not only Death Note, but also Bleach, Naruto, DBZ and basically almost every AMV ever created! Of course, mine isn't exactly perfect either (for example, the "Kira part" in 2:35-2:45), but I still think I did a pretty decent job putting this thing together. Because most of the song is sung in Japanese, I've provided the English lyrics for the song bellow: This single page, forever depressing A fleeting tactics in the eyes Without petition, evil against law, chain it in prison Poison the notebook, fear the lust Delusion of being deceived, perpetually drooling Judgment is crime, control they driveled Who has the Rx for that? A decriminalized world A sanctioned word Taking in heat, just like "Pirates of Death" Atone with the game of laws Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain The unstoppable eraser rain Crimson-colored song of destruction Won't it end? How long has it been half noise? Have ya got "that" which lies dormant within society? Who can overwrite it, the filth of the world? The earth astir from a chain of annihilation Master, obliteration, fated self-destruction A decriminalized world A sanctioned word Taking in heat, just like "Pirates of Death" Atone with the game of laws Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain The unstoppable eraser rain Love, battle of wits, tension Egoistically bent sadist Iron hammer of fragmented evil Lives snatched away Saturated with scoundrels, urgent, murder of criminals Verdict! "Human rights," "trouble," "hatred" Repentance spilling viscera Snickering shinigami, why this consequence? Truth, no one knows the misery Kira We are the Kira My name is Kira Even your Kira Kira We are the Kira My name is Kira Even your Kira Above is carnage of a dark funeral, Truth-debate-peace-error, regret, Many thousands of years, pity Above is carnage of a dark funeral, Truth-debate-peace-error, regret, Many thousands of years, pity Violence, turbulent times, despair and pain Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain Billy in despair Now, it's the time for ethics Now, the unstoppable eraser rain Dancing bloody heart Love, the thunderous color tone is life Dancing bloody heart Love, the thunderous color tone is life It's an unstoppable fate, chained race Clips: Zetsubou Billy

TrailerHits**** is the first and only show to review movie trailers. Is Frost/Nixon a Trailer Hit? or a Trailer Miss. Find out here. Think we missed the trailer leave your comments below. Synopsis: Oscar-winning director Ron Howard brings to the screen writer Peter Morgan’s (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland) electrifying battle between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president with a legacy to save, and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality with a name to make, in the untold story of the historic encounter that changed both: Frost/Nixon. Reprising their roles from Morgan’s stageplay are Frank Langella, who won a Tony for his portrayal of Nixon, and Michael Sheen, who fully inhabited the part of Frost onstage in London and New York. For three years after being forced from office, Nixon remained silent. But in summer 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. Nixon surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans. Likewise, Frost’s team harbored doubts about their boss’ ability to hold his own. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted. Would Nixon evade questions of his role in one of the nation’s greatest disgraces? Or would Frost confound critics and bravely demand accountability from the man who’d built a career out of stonewalling? Distributed by Tubemogul.
