Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

One of my very good friends has actually had the audacity to go and see this film, against my advice!

This is her review:
"You’ll be disappointed in me, but we went to see the Game of Shadows Sherlock film, and love it….I know it’s both a bit overly dramatic with the effects, and a little bit pantomime as well, but it was a lot of fun for us as non-purists…! G".

It goes without saying that I am NEVER speaking to her again!

In response David M has said this: "Wild horses wouldn't drag me to see that one".
David M - You and I are in total (100%) agreement!

i would watch, because, hey, i like RDJr. he is pretty much a funny guy.
but we all know that was NO Sherlock Holmes. that was just to laugh.. O.õ its like a thing that use the same names, and "little things about the background", but its not the real thing. O.o i dunno if i'm making myself any clear.. lol²
i didnt watched the movie yet. O.o but i will, eventully O_o because i sooooooo love RDJr. even if he is best in "Charlie" or "IRonman" or..."Kiss kiss, bang bang" or in that silly but beautiful movie called "heart and souls" =D

Yes you are making yourself perfectly clear!

What I really said to G was that it was fine for her to see the film and enjoy it. I know that the RDJ films have introduced a lot of people to Holmes and Watson and, for that, I am eternally grateful!

I am not a RDJ fan but I do love Jude Law. Although again, Jude is nothing like I imagine Dr Watson to be. Martin Freeman, on the other hand, is bang on the money!

yeah! he is bigger than RDJr.. and this is pretty much the "WTF" thing that is NOT right in the Holmes/Watson relationship! and Holmes over there, has the body of a fighter.. O.o i know that Holmes knows how to fight.. but really..Watson should be the one that knows best right?
yeah, i understand you. and i hope people doesnt think that Sherlock Holmes is like that, for god sake -_-

I don't mind Jude being taller.

I have more of an issue with RDJ just being physically wrong for the role of Holmes. Holmes is tall, slim and with an angular face. RDJ is short, stout and with a round face! I just don't see him as Holmes and I don't believe that he is Holmes. For me, any film or TV adaptation has to have a Holmes that I can believe in; this film does not have that!

Going to see this with a friend in the New Year for sure. We saw the first one together and had such a laugh. I'm quite happy to stretch my SH appreciation to include this silly rendition. The chemistry – sorry bromance – between RDJr and JL makes it all worthwhile! 'Tis the season to be jolly after all... :-))

I allowed G to see the film but you? NO NO NO NO NO!

I am speechless!
