sherlock holmes

Post by weedguru_animal » Mon Jan 02, 2012 9:54 am



I am a fan of Downey Jnr. I love his eyes, and see similar sadness and depth that I see in my own. A crying shame I lack his prettiness! He plays roles often which suit what I have come to assume is his character; intelligent, broody, arrogant, playful, and well meaning. He was brilliant in Fur...which was the last time I saw him prior to Sherlock. The plot moves at a decent pace, the dialogue is fun, the cinematography is interesting and maintains my attention. Downey and Law mesh well enough. All in all, I was impressed, and enjoyed it swimmingly. Although part of this is due to my love of Downey, and another part due to my interest in olde england.

Animal rating 7/10.

First off its 'canuck', second the movie couldnt get my attention. I wanted to like it, but it was not something i could ever find enjoyable.

i cant remember anything specific to the movie as i havent tried to watch it in a while, so the best i can say is i just did not find it the least bit interesting.

Someone's got a crush on Downeyyyyy lol :P

I really want to see this movie. The first one was awesome and had a great twist to it. It went one way then completely smacks you in the face!

OK. But why did bubbles mention it???? I am perplexed...

and andria, wake up...this IS the first one! Not exactly a crush, more some kind of natural sense of kinship.

I liked this movie OK. The sequel is spectacular and I highly recommend it. It still takes a lot of liberties but it is a very good adaptation of Sherlock Holmes vs. Professor Moriarty. And they've got the character of Holmes spot on: drug addicted alcoholic yet a genius of observation and deduction, and someone who is sort of cold when it comes to personal relationships but isn't 100% aloof either.

Downey + Law make an awesome duo.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

I couldn't have said it better myself dude.

Also, it's a Guy Ritchie film. I can't remember one of his films which i've not liked.
