Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Trailer

December, traditionally a slow month for great movies, will see the arrival of Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law reprising their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John H. Watson respectively in "A Game of Shadows". If like me, you enjoyed the first installment and loved Downey's eccentric portrayal of Sherlock, then you're probably gonna enjoy this flick too. 

Possibly worth the price of admission (in no particular order):

  • Professor James Moriarty (Sherlock's archenemy);
  • Naomi Rapace - to see if she really can rap;
  • Sherlock Holmes in a dress;
  • Sherlock Holmes in a pyjamas; and
  • Sherlock Holmes fighting with an umbrella.

Possible reason to just download and not watch it in the cinema (in no particular order):
  • Downey Jr looking rather old and haggard;
  • No Mark Strong (unless he returns from the dead...again.); and
  • Sherlock Holmes partially dressed.

Release date: December 2011

Snow White & The Huntsman Trailer

Charlize Theron looking delish in this trailer. And what is up with her mirror? Gotta get me one of those. Kristin Stewart looks like she just walked in from Twilight, but at least glittery Edwood Sullen isn't joining her here. Hemsworth looks, well, hems-worthy (especially when taking on that gigantic beast) and since it's brought to you by the producers of Alice in Wonderland, you can bet it'll be a rip-roaring ride of a movie! 

Release date: June 2012.

A very gory end for snatch thief (Updated)

KUALA LUMPUR: It was a gory end for a snatch thief who died with his private parts severed in a collision at Ampang Jaya here between his getaway motorcycle and the victim’s car.

The police and passers-by found the body of the 35-year-old suspect in a drain, with his penis almost crushed and detached from his body. His pants had been ripped from his body in the accident.

His accomplice, who was riding pillion, suffered body injuries.

The incident happened soon after the 28-year-old victim was locking the gate to leave her home in Taman Mega Jaya in Ampang at around 8.30am yesterday. She had left the bag in her Toyota Vios, while the car engine was on.

A man suddenly appeared, opened the car door and snatched the bag. The woman tried to fight back but was kicked in the abdomen.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Amirruddin Jamaluddin said the woman then got into her car and gave chase before blocking them.

The two men were caught off-guard and rammed right into the victim’s car resulting in both of them being flung from the machine. The accident occurred about 200m from the woman’s house.

The snatch theft victim was not hurt in the incident.

ACP Amiruddin also said both men had valid driving licences but the motorcycle they were using was reported stolen.

Police are investigating if the suspects were involved in other criminal activities in the district.

Update: Turns out the snatch thief did not lose his penis in the accident after all. He merely wanted to award a Medal of Honour to the heroic victim for her courageous act. We thank him for being considerate (and ballsy, hahaha) enough to manually remove it before passing it to her.
