Promised Land was a little to formulaic for me, but agree on Sherlock Holmes and End of Watch (haven't seen the others).

Parker is like a cheese burger. You can pick it up any time and know what you're getting into. It's no steak, but it's pleasant enough when you're in the mood.

Sunset is about James Garner in Hollywood as a consultant on early westerns. James Garner as Earp and Bruce Willis as Tom Mix. Not a bad movie.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on movies. I love Sherlock Holmes, but never watched End of Watch. You said it's excellent so I'll try to see it.
