Robert Downey Jr.

I've watched this movie twice. The first time I watched it, I was completely satisfied with Guy Ritchie's vision for the movie, and also with RDJ's performance. He even got nominated for the Golden Globes, and won for the Best Actor category. Even before this movie, RDJ showed a 360 change in him, in many aspects, besides his acting. After his problems concerning drugs, he totally transformed himself.
I, as a fan, am ultimately proud of him, and the moment his name was mentioned as the winner of Best Actor, I screamed at the top of my lungs, I was extremely excited and happy for him. He looked satisfied and content. I have a gut-feeling, that he's gonna make movie history. Not only is he on the horizontal level with the great actors in Hollywood; Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon.. the list goes on, but he has established himself as a successful actor, who acknowledge himself with the people he entertains. The reason he acts, he does this thing for a living (not everybody has the major talent that he possesses) can pull it off ultimately like he can.
Congratulations, Robert Downey Jr.!
Sherlock Holmes was a great movie, topped second on the blockbuster movie chart. It's about this shrewd detective who is strategically intelligent and rigid, who solves cases just by simply analyzing the obvious facts. Well, Jude Law played his part too. And really, really, played his part. Law plays Dr. Watson, Holmes' comrade. I think their relationship channels to the relationship between brothers, this unbreakable bond between them. Every single time Watson wants out, Holmes will pull this weird but tactically smart stunt that will make Watson instantly change his mind. I think that Watson never really wanted to leave. Well, because of all those long years with Holmes, he's gotten used to Holmes' getting into trouble in the midst of solving a case.
Beautiful movie and beautiful cast.

And yes, this isn't the last time we'll be hearing of Robert Downey Jr. As they would say in the Mafia, 'he has made his bones..'
