Review: The Princess and the Frog

The Princess and the Frog is Disney's latest 2-D animated feature and their first since Brother Bear. It also marks the appearance of Disney's first black princess. The story follows a lonely waitress named Tianna as she works two full-time jobs to help save money to open up her own restaurant. All that changes when a visiting prince is put under a spell that turns him into a frog and in a case of mistaken identity, asks for a kiss while she is dressed as a princess.

Review: Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are called upon to solve a mysterious case involving the vile Lord Blackwood and a series of murders happening around London.

I'll admit, I went into the theater not expecting much from Sherlock Holmes, as the trailers made the script seem cheesy and the character not being well, Sherlock-y enough. Luckily, I was proven very, very wrong. Sure, the film has taken some liberties with the characters and their motivations, but the overall spirit of a Holmesian adventure is here and man is it fun!
