Subbing for Chris today, and it’s a bit late to start on any topics, but how about we take a quick look at the trailer for the upcoming reimagining of Sherlock Holmes from Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey, Jr.?
Now then, there’s been a lot of hub-bub about how true it is to the “real” Holmes (as to the actual reality of the Holmes character, we’ve actually talked about that before).
I think it looks like a blast, keeping in mind:
A) I’m a RDJ sucker
B) I’m not a Holmes purist, and
C) With one notable exception (Swept Away – and Ritchie didn’t get his groove back until they divorced!), Guy Ritchie puts together the type of movie I generally enjoy. Are they deep? No (except for Revolver, which was probably the deepest movie Jason Statham will ever star in). Are they overly pleased with themselves? Sometimes. Do I mind? No, I like stylistic fight scenes and witty banter.
Your turn, what do you say?
