Exclusive: 'Sherlock' Boss on Emotional Season 4: 'There Are Some Proper Shocks This Time Around'
Last we saw the Sherlock crew one year ago, things were a bit off-kilter for the characters -- due largely to the Christmas special’s Victorian-era setting and Moriarty’s mysterious (and presumed) resurrection. Now, with the debut of the anticipated fourth season mere days away, it’s back to business for the famous detective.

“It’s nice to go into the real story,” showrunner Steven Moffat tells Et. “One year ago with the Christmas special, we took a sidestep in the narrative. We’re finally getting back to the story we’re telling and that’s exciting.”

Moffat and company -- including star Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the title character Sherlock Holmes -- have spent the past year warning loyal Sherlockians that the upcoming three episodes will be darker and more emotional. At Comic-Con this past July, Cumberbatch noted “there are quite a few tears.”

'A Most Violent Year' and 'The Immigrant' Lead This Week's New DVD and Blu-rays

A Most Violent Year I was not the fan most were of J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. It was one of those movies I respected more than enjoyed for its aesthetic, its approach to the genre and the performances. However, as I wrote in my review, I felt it was "a movie that feels like it's trying to be something rather than actually being that something." A second viewing may give me a little more respect for its narrative, but that's where I sit right now.

'The Raid 2', 'Nymphomaniac', 'Jodoworsky's Dune' & 'Bad Words' On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

The Raid 2: Berandal I was not a fan of The Raid, but I am expecting a Blu-ray review copy of The Raid 2 any day now as I'm willing to check out the sequel and see if there were any improvements. Maybe this film will be more than an action montage and have some sort of narrative weight to it.

Nymphomaniac Volume I & II I've already posted my review of both volumes of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac and suffice to say, I wasn't entirely impressed. Some seem to think it's because the so-called comedy went over my head. Perhaps, but if what we're talking about here is blatant comedy then I'm just not interested.

Bad Words Still haven't seen it, but the box art says it's a "tour de force" and "great", and box art never lies.
