My mind ( Like Quentin Tarantino) sometimes enjoys reverse chronological order. So i guess will watch 2nd part then watch the 1st part and sit down and piece the puzzles together

Go for it. The two are quite independent. You wont miss on much.
Was hoping to see Johansson in latex (ala beckinsale in the Underworld trilogy), disappointed that was not to be

Oh man! I watched the movie and I thought the same. Sad to see Guy Ritchie brutalize a lovely character as Sherlock Holmes. He's removed the quintessential qualities of this amazing character and reduced him to nothing. Perhaps the best portrayal of Sherlock Holmes is the series running now on History channel!

Well, I found the movie "Sherlock Holmes" to be quite a nice entertaining movie. The story was indeed gripping as a Sherlock Holmes story should be. Don't know why Guy Ritchie has portraid him like that on contrary to popular belief of Holmes being a meticulous gentleman. But might be in his early life Holmes was bit of like that ;-) as I vaguely remember of Holmes being described as a loner in Study in Scarlet(need to read that again as I don't remember exactly) when Dr. Watson meets him for the first time.

Watched " The Holcroft Convenant" starring Michael Caine and Michael Lonsdale ( Played a character who makes those dolls in Ronin)

Story is about 3 Nazi's making a pact before killing themselves.

Fast Forward to present day wherein these 3 Nazi's son ( Michael Caine is one of them) are given access to $4.5 Billion Dollars to make use to make this world a better place. This was a way to amend the nasty things their fathers did during the hitler regime.

However, things dont seem to fall into place so easily with lovely ingredients of a spy thriller ( double cross, secret codes, chasing on foot etc) this movie has got what it takes.

Michael Caine seemed almost like a nerd in this entire business but, as movie progresses he gets hang of the spy business and handles things like a professional.

Certainly worth a watch for old movie spy charm, fantastic european landscapes and decently taut thriller.

3.5/5

Step up 2 on its own was a good movie. Compare it to Step up and it lost its way in between. Though i am eagerly waiting for Step Up 3D. summer is gonna be cool.

She is outta my league is also a very good movie. Loved it.

Invention of lying was junk.

No idea about the other 3 but I really liked Step up 2. Awesome choreography and the last dance was mindblowing.

Saw Numbers Game, a short movie based on call centers, liked some parts of it, not bad overall, but a little wired for sure.

Step Up 2 was watchable. The soundtrack too was good. I havent watched Step Up, so cannot compare them.

If you liked Step Up 2, i am sure you will love Step up.

I am not sure if while watching Step up 2, you raised a question seeing Chaning Tatum (Tyler) competing with his sister - Andie at a dance club. Your answers lie in Step Up.

Music of both the parts were awesome. Flo Rida's LOW was awesome. Still is the hottest track at pubs here.

Gave a second viewing to some of the movies that i had seen long back:
1. Fight Club: Ed Norton at his best. And Brad Pitt is his usual brilliant. Did anyone else notice the micro-second long flashes of Brad Pitt in the beginning of the movie? I ran those portions in extra slowmo just to take a longer look. Anyway, contrary to what the title suggests, the movie is not about fighting. Don't be fooled by the tagline of the movie "How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?" The movie is a trip through the psyche of one of the best roles ever performed.

2. Mullholland Drive: 1.5 hours into the movie and i am thinking to myself, "so far the movie is making sense. I dont know what all the hoopla is about" And then starts last half an hour where everything you thought you knew about the storyline gets trashed and you are left dazed and wondering, "what the...."

3. The Machinist: Respect for Christian Bale. The movie is about a guy who works the graveyard shift in a lathe factory. He has not slept in a year, by the way. And he looks like a washed out cloth hanging on a skeleton. You wont believe this is the same Christian Bale that plays Batman. Anyway, so things start to go wrong for our hero when he accidentally cuts off the arm of a co worker. This movie was like a modern version of a Dostoevsky classic that i don't want to name.
