Movie Review – Sherlock Holmes (PG-13)

Sherlock Holmes was one of the most interesting films I have seen his year.  Robert Downey, Jr. portrays him as a man that is unbelievably brilliant, almost disturbed, in how he interacts with those around him.

I was surprised with the level of fighting and mayhem in this movie.  Not that it was a bad thing, it was not what I expected.  I thought the movie captured the late 1800’s very well, right down to the look of the streets and costumes.  In fact, the streets were so gritty you could almost smell them!

I do not want to give plot away, suffice to say there are surprises and twists.  The love interest and interesting relationship between Holmes and Watson help you to connect with each of the characters in a way that makes you genuinely care for them and what happens to them.

I highly recommend this film and if I had an official rating system, I would give it 5 gears out of 6…

1- Pound of Ground Meat (Turkey works GREAT!)

1 – Package of Taco Seasoning

1 – Cup diced onions

1 – Cup shredded lettuce

1 – 12 oz pkg frozen corn

1 – 8 oz package of cheese

Hot Sauce to taste

Prepare ground meat and onions according to Taco Seasoning instructions.  While the ground meat is simmering, arrange Scoops in a single layer in a baking dish or tray.  After meat is cooked, layer the Taco Poppers as follows starting with the bottom and working up:

We use these as appetizers or make a double batch for use as a main course.  My kids love to make these since we let them help make them!
