Sherlock Holmes

This amazing book is so thrilling that it takes your mind out of the normal 21th century and takes you back in time to actually be there with this explendid character and his way of working for an answer to a crime

Re: Sherlock Holmes

My son and his girlfriend saw it and said it was fantastic. I'm going to try and see it this week. So far the only movie I've seen this holiday was the new Chipmunks movie, and my date was 12 years old!

Re: Sherlock Holmes

Yeah, Becke - Sherlock Holmes was such fun.  I might need to see it again and try to catch some more of the clues!

Re: Sherlock Holmes

We saw it tonight! I loved the relationship between Holmes and Watson, and I thought it was interesting that the baddie looked significantly like the actors who have played Holmes in the past.

 

I had one idea that proved to be wrong -- I don't want to give anything away, but I was looking for something more straightforward in one part of the solution.

 

Oddly, ever since I discovered Laurie R. King's Mary Russell books, I find myself looking ahead to Holmes meeting Mary. I could totally see Robert Downey Jr. as the Holmes in those books.
