Wit has a major sex appeal

Last Wednesday, I was in Mid Valley with one of my best friends, Sree. For the first time, we caught two movies back to back. I think I am never going to go to the cinema for one movie ... ever. Greed has got to be my sin. We were so unsure of what to watch, there was so many options. Avatar, Sherlock Holmes, Imaginarium, Paranormal Activities ....3 idiots (i'll stop right here). Finally after brainstorming for a while, we decided on Avatar and Sherlock Holmes. Thank God for that!!!!

Sherlock Holmes was reeking with wit. I loved both Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. I am in a major love mode with Robert Downey Jr. He looked so carelessly handsome (I am having palpitation thinking about him) and was so witty. I could live watching that show. What's is so appealing about men like this...and why can we not have real men who are fabulously witty and intelligent. Now, getting back to the movie, I think Guy Ritchie did a wonderful job with Sherlock Holmes. It could probably get into my Top 5 movies of all time. For those who have not watched it, it is worth every penny. The movie probably has a "satisfaction guaranteed" seal to it.

As for Avatar, a must watch movie as well. The graphics were crazy. The movie had very strong social sentiments. There was this particular part where the humans were destroying the aborigines homes and were waging a war. It was heart breaking. I thought of all the real wars of today. That moment totally hit a chord with me...war is wrong. Those affected with the war now... we owe them. Many are carrying the burden of crime on humanity. Go watch the movie, you will have a better appreciation to everything that's happening around you.
