I usually don't do blockbusters, and especially not Film X number 2, 3, etc. But I have made an exception for Guy Richie's Sherlock Holmes. We watched the first one on Sunday to refresh our memories, and it was even better than the first time around - so many little details to spot, and the dialogue is just delicious. Then yesterday, we went to see A Game of Shadows, and we had so much fun. It's beautifully shot, the sets are sumptuous, the whole movie is energetic, witty, funny... It is wonderful Steampunk entertainment for everyone!
I am a big Sherlock Homes fan (and a student of the Victorian era) and I am not disgruntled by this modern version at all. This re-invention of the iconic characters is quite clever, and if you have read the books, you will read between the lines to see that Sherlock Holmes really is an action man adventurer. Just a different type...
I think therefore I write.
