Exactly. The action scenes were SO intense. I think it perfectly suited my idea of a modern impression of the time period.

I LOVE that movie.  It's actually pretty true to Doyle's works as well. 

In fact, I'm currently working on a research paper laying out all the things that the 2009 film did right.  Which is basically everything.   :D

Haha, so true! I've read every Holmes story from Doyle save for the last 3 in the complete collection.

However, they did NOT show Sherlock's addiction to cocaine. Which I suppose is suitable for a PG-13 movie anyways. ;)

I just saw Iron Man 2 on premiere night, and it was AMAZING. Loved it. Actually, Robert Downey Jr. is the man. Love his movies.

And Scarlett Johansson is WAY hot. No joke, she's amazing. ;)

@ CC: Although they didn't directly show Holmes using cocaine, Watson does make a reference to Sherlock drinking something meant for eye surgery.  Cocaine was used as an painkiller for various surgeries during the 19th century   :)

Ah, that works. I might not have noticed that reference. :)

Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect Holmes.  He delivers that line so well.

I noticed that he always had a pipe.  Maybe it was a crack pipe for his cocaine addiction?


Also, it was moths, not bees. ;)


I really liked

No, that was just a pipe.

Was it moths? I forget, because I know in the stories Holmes lives on his own tending bees later on in his life.

And yeah, I thought the whole intricacies of all the mysteries in the movie were astounding.
