Robert Downey Jnr Walks Out Of Awkward Interview.

Personally I admire Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy but I really don’t think he’s suited to interviewing celebrities.

In the video above Guru-Murphy poses a couple of really uncomfortable questions to the movie star Robert Downey Jnr about the star’s past with drugs and his relationship with his father when the sole reason the actor was present for the chat was to promote his latest film Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron.

I have no idea why a man’s long forgotten days with narcotics or much publicised relationship with his dad should be of any relevance now, when he has spoken at length about his struggles years before. Downey Jnr rightly left the interview early stating:

“It’s just getting a little Diane Sawyer in here”

Guy Ritchie’s Black Ops 2 Trailer…With Added Sherlock.

As every man-child across the globe already knows Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, or Blops2 for short, hits shelves next month and cholesterol levels are set to spike.

In anticipation of the first-person shooter games company Treyarch managed to harness the talents of British film director Guy Ritchie for a live-action trailer and somehow also managed to convince the other half of the Sherlock Holmes team, Robert Downey Jnr, to take part too.

 

Avast! Official Trailer For Avengers Assemble.

Yes, they’ve changed the name for the benefit of UK audiences. Apparently keeping the original title The Avengers would cause much confusion throughout Great Britain, with many people so puzzled that this film wasn’t about John Steed or a lycra clad Emma Peel, that they’d be forced to put down their china tea cups.

This official trailer gives you a look at Joss Whedon’s vision of a modern day take on the super hero alliance of The Avengers, starring Robert Downey Jnr as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. The plot rattles along like so:

Pew, pew, pew, zooooom, baaabaaabooooomm, thwunk, bang, bang, bang clank, click, puh-puh-puh, gazooks, tch, tch, tch.

Our Bitesize Sherlock Holmes 2 Review.

Go see it. Simple as that.

It has action, great humour, the attention to detail for a period piece of this scale is fantastic, the chemistry between Downey Jnr and Law is more solid than the first and the cinematography is outstanding.

Sure it has some faults, a major villian just seems to vanish with no conclusion to his story and slow motion sequences are used a little too much, but for the most this is Indiana Jones in a top hat and tails or James Bond in a flat cap and tweed suit. In a year crowded with poor sequels and downright bad movies Sherlock Holmes 2: Game Of Shadows thankfully delivers the goods.
