Not that any cares, but we here at ADR are big Sherlock Holmes fans. So it is with sweet anticipation that we wait for the new Holmes film to hit the screens as Robert Downey Jr plays the more rough and disruptive Holmes then ever portrayed on the big screen before.
Now if you know anything about the man behind the man, Sir Athur Conan Doyle, then you would know that this guy always painted himself as a badass. A real ladies man, and overall genius dealing with the cutting edge of science, physics, human anatomy, and human phycology, it was not enough for this dude to be the founding father of forensic science. I mean, this guys started all these damn shows like CSI, and NCIS. But then he decides to start writing about it, and when stories about himself didn't find an audience, he made the more reclusive character of Sherlock Holmes. In fact, the both characters of Holmes and Watson were both parts of Doyle himself that he thought up. But Holmes was more the man he wanted to be, while Watson was more the man he really was.
From what we have seen in trailers and what we could find on the internet, it looks like director, Guy Ritchie, has brought out more of the roughness that other films in the past tent to over look about Holmes. And it seems that Watson is more daring then in the past as well. I know that the character of Irene Adler is also in the film, so I'm not sure where the plot will have is store for us. But I really can't wait to see it.
Now if you are a Holmes fan like us, then I now you are stoked as much as we are to see this film. Holmes is a timeless character that a lot of these tv show detectives bit off of all the time. So I recommend you go and see the original. ADR continues!!
