Movies in the Mail: Sherlock Holmes
And I thought it was just OK. What did you think?
Here's my problem: I couldn't understand what either Holmes or Watson said most of the time. And I think my neighbors were enjoying it along with me because I had the volume cranked up. Really, I think it was the speed of speech, not the volume. I didn't have trouble with the girl or the bad guy, so there.
And I fast forwarded through the fight scenes. I've been doing that a lot lately. Maybe I'm becoming more delicate in my old age.
Still, I would watch Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes (and even as Iron Man because it's RDJ) even if I never hear a word he says and fast forward through the beatings and also the crazy, crime-solving hazes (and this is a poster that needs to hang on a wall somewhere, people...I totally understand the appeal). And I guess that's a good thing since the internets say Sherlock Holmes 2 is coming soon.
