“sherlock holmes” trailer

While I love Doyle’s stories (although I find the novels to be a little tedious, with the exception of The Hound of the Baskervilles), I am by no means a Holmesian purist. Get the basics right — Victorian London, eccentric behavior, have him throw on a disguise at some point — and you can have him fighting Dracula for all I care. (Actually, I’m pretty sure that’s been done.) I like the pure stuff as well, and have no argument with fans that claim Jeremy Brett was The Bestest Holmes Ever; but I think the character is such a part of western literature now that he’s become pretty malleable.

All of which is to say: RDJ and Rachel McAdams throwing down? Whatever, I’m there.

    It looks terrible & not Sherlock Holmes in any way shape or form. It does look like a fun film though. I’ll be watching it.
