New on DVD
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows - Every hero needs a good villain. For Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), this couldn’t be more true. Holmes’s partner Dr. Watson (Jude Law) has been targeted by Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris) because Holmes has started to get a bit too close to what Moriarty has been working on. Watson gets married and leaves on his honeymoon. Holmes discovers this and goes after his friend to make sure nothing happens. This leads Watson and Holmes on a wild chase through Europe to finally find out just what Moriarty has been up to. Will the two partners be able to stop the criminal mastermind before he’s able to reveal his master plan? My sources tell me that a third Sherlock Holmes is already being planned. Also, Downey has already started to work on “Iron Man 3” and set for release some time in 2013.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance - Being a hero can take its toll on the best ones. Johnny Blaze (Nicholas Cage) sold his soul to save his father and everything seemed fine at first. You have to be sure to read the fine print of the contract because his father later gets into an accident and passes away. Johnny has to honor the contract and now becomes the Ghost Rider. Whenever evil preys on the innocent, Johnny becomes the rider to stop the evil. Some years go by and Johnny has been the rider for awhile. A member of an holy order approaches him to offer him a chance to lift his curse but he has to find and protect a young boy who has been chosen to become the next vessel of the Devil. He’s able to do this and the order keeps their promise. The people after the boy find him and now Johnny has to find a way to get his powers back. Can Johnny save the boy before it’s too late? My sources tell me that Cage has several projects in the works including another “National Treasure.” Stay tuned!
