I just watched Dark City last night. A couple of weeks ago I watched Gattaca. I watched both of them because I heard good stuff about them and mostly because Netflix suggested them to me based on what I like. And I suddenly remembered watching these on TV in my early teens. I never really thought about them that much, they aired on a channel that often showed foreign indie movies. La Cinquieme/France 5/Arte whatever the channel is called now. I often caught a movie already started and watch until the end but I never tried to find a title.

As I watched Dark City I couldn't remember the story but I remembered the ambiance and some little details and realized that these movies contributed to shape my current taste in movies.

I was thinking of buying my dad Game of Thrones on DVD, because it's one of the few things he watches on TV (to the point of being serious business about it). I might buy him the books too, but to be honest, I haven't seen him read anything non-work-related in my entire life, so I don't know if that's a good idea.

He's okay with letting me borrow his DVD's, so I might start watching them once we buy them. I've admittedly never watched anything on HBO (other than Flight of The Conchords), so I'm not sure if watching the show together would be a good idea or not.

It's weird how almost every movie nowadays is based on something, but the majority of the adaptions we get aren't that close to the source material- almost as if they use the original plot as a mold for a completely different story.

I know how every single series is a homogeneous grey mass of generic to the point of all pictures being taken in front of cloudy skies with blue or orange lighting and the colors all faded out because fuck bright colors and things that are unique.

Also the uniform is off. Sure its more in line with the look of a Texas Ranger of the era but with the Mask it just looks silly. Blue is easy enough to rationalize (I must wear a disguise so hide my former life..I'll wear my/brothers/fathers old Calvary Uniform). And Johnny is no help looking like the ancestor of The Crow.

Does he really need to? It's not exactly a rare viewpoint among Conan Doyle fans. I mean, if you enjoy the movies, okay. I might have enjoyed them if they weren't meant to be Sherlock Holmes. But they make "I, Robot" and Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" look faithful to the source material. Holmes really wasn't a character invented with big Hollywood blockbusters in mind.

To be fair, Hollywood has a history of having a hard time with detective story adaptations in general.

I've yet to see Game of Shadows but I will say that Guy Ritchie Sherlock 1 was barely a mystery so in that sense yeah it's not very good (still a fun movie though). But RDJ and Jude are a FANTASTIC Holmes and Watson.
