Or as Monty Python Might Have Titled It...

"The Sherlock Holmes is a Goofy Action Hero Movie"



I can see this being fun in a Van Helsing-ey sort of way, but honestly I'd rather have a proper Sherlock Holmes movie. Snagged from various sources.

oh thank goodness, i wasn't the only one thinking this.

Actually, i was thinking ROBERT DOWNY JR. IS TONY STARK AS SHERLOCK HOLMES. (minus the goatee and engineering degree)

Heh. Well, as one friend mentioned to me why Robert Downy was the perfect Tony Stark he was like...

"Robert Downy Jr is a womanizing alcholic drug-user who's very rich, and Tony Stark is a womanizing alcholic drug-user who's very rich and has a suit of armor."

So yeah, Tony Stark = Robert Downy Jr.

On the plus side, who else in Hollywood knows how to play an eccentric drug addict?

Nobody will ever equal Jeremy Brett. I don't know what it is about the 80s and 90s, but they must be the golden age of British mysteries brought to the small screen.

Agreed. Brett remains the definitive Sherlock Holmes.

This certainly does not look like the Holmes that I am familiar with. But then today's audience would most likely fall asleep with the real Holmes who used his head, not his fist (thought he did know how to use them and other weapons) to solve crimes.
