Guy Ritchie is still one of my favourite directors and I’m not backing up on that statement any time soon. Sure, love for him stems deeply from adoring Snatch, but his directing style is still something I enjoy despite his latest movies not being perfect. So yes, I think his style is still on point in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, despite the movie lacking instant appeal and uniqueness. And while I will always have nostalgic appreciation towards Ritchie, for me, this mythical block buster felt flat and empty, even though it tried hard to hit all the right marks.

While there might be some things that never change, we as people still constantly evolve just like the world around us. Our thoughts, our tastes, our opinions – with every new grain of information something in us could change completely. We might idolise someone one minute and cringe our noses at their stupidity the next, we might find a movie absolutely brilliant, only to fall out of love with it two years later. And it’s fascinating to see and compare our present to the past, which is why I had this crazy idea to compile My Movie Alphabet Vol 2, almost five years after I posted the first one. To see how I’ve changed… and how much I’ve stayed the same.

Code name: spoilers.
Snatch. is my all time favorite movie. It combines humor, thrill, Jason Statham, Brad freakin’ Pitt and the behind the scenes talent that is Guy Ritchie. Now, for some years, Ritchie’s work has left me lukewarm because the spunk, that is an indescribable Snatch. feature, was sort of missing. Not that I’m saying Sherlock Holmes’ movies were bad, they just weren’t for me. This is why my expectations for The Man From U.N.C.L.E were vaguely set between like and dislike, and the movie itself was meant to dip the scales on either side – and luckily, it was for the positive!

Starting a new and hopefully a successful series of posts which was originally supposed to be an one time thing but happened to be more exciting as a longer commitment to this blog. Mr. Awards is obviously, as the name states, an award but it can be Mrs. Awards as well. It will be given, by me of course, to a man or a woman in the movie world for their body of work. It can be an actor or a director, a composer or a script writer – no limits of any kind from my part. Hell, it can even be an award for an outstanding blogger! Also, there is no certain logic to the order of these awards being contributed, it is done in random and therefore the first luck of the draw gives us the first receiver – director Guy Ritchie.

Another action hero (kind of) returns: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson will be on screens this December with no other than Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as the stars. The reason why I was excited about the first movie was Guy Ritchie and the same reason applies for this one. The trailer is promising and what I can tell this one might be better than the first, I don’t know why but I have this feeling about it. Plus, it is so nice to see Robert and Jude back together and if nothing else, they are the reason why to watch A Game of Shadows where Holmes and Watson share their bromance chemistry.
