Looks shockingly stupid and flimsy, but each to their own.

Poor Sherlock, first the RDJ debacle and now this.

How I long for the days of Jeremy Brett.

I watched that a few weeks ago on Netflix. I really did enjoy it. And the acting was surprisingly good. Steampunk meets Sherlock Holmes. Fun stuff.

And I liked the Ritchie/Downey Jr./Law (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0988045/) movie lots, so there.

I love this adaptation. It's a fresh look at Holmes and Watson, all while being the familiar characters I grew to love while reading them.

Love it, love it. Yes. Love it.

The new one that came out lately, the RDJ one, was kickawesome, even if they had a sub-par mystery to solve. RDJ/Jude Law were awesome and anyone who says otherwise is stupid.

Or disagrees with me, at the very least.

Also, I was just thinking that people are soooo offended by this film...but, uh, Sherlock Holmes has always been a pulp fiction hero. He was back in the day, he is now if you ask me. Arthur C. Doyle did write The Lost World...why not do a crossover...and add some steampunk too.

Then again, maybe I'm just insane.

Good point. I do enjoy different spins on Sherlock such as Gaiman's A Study in Emerald, The Beekeeper's Apprentice and The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series, but the actual films involving Holmes all feel flat and uninteresting to me. The Guy Ritchie version was a little too . . . Guy Ritchie for me. Too loud, too brash and too modern.

Then again, I'm a terrible, fun-hating curmudgeon. :D

Oddly enough I still haven't seen the RDJ version because I wasn't sure I liked how they were characterizing Holmes (we've had threads on that).

But then, OTOH, I really did enjoy this steampunk version. Go figure. :D

A surprisingly good popcorn movie.

Everything is better with steampunk. And dinosaurs.

Which is why this movie is awesome.
