Looks like a wonderful movie but it strays REALLY far from the original novel. It also seems a lot darker then the book. I want to see it badly xD.

Don't know if its supposed to be a retelling of the original book or just something to possibly revive the Holmes name but yeah gotta wait till Xmas time sadly.

I saw that preview before Harry Potter. I lol'd @ the hammer part and the stripper part. Both were pretty funny. xD

I am definitely going to go see it.

Never read the Sherlock Holmes series, but I'm eagerly anticipating this movie--and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Jude Law is in it

Looks to be a thrill ride with impressive gadgets and gizmos.

Default Sherlock Holmes

synopsis taken from imdb

Quote:
After finally catching serial killer and occult "sorcerer" Lord Blackwood, legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson can close yet another successful case. But when Blackwood mysteriously returns from the grave and resumes his killing spree, Holmes must take up the hunt once again. Contending with his partner's new fiancée and the dimwitted head of Scotland Yard, the dauntless detective must unravel the clues that will lead him into a twisted web of murder, deceit, and black magic
Just saw this movie. I thought it was passable.

I just watched it...and it was very good. The plot was a bit predictable but the acting was amazing. it's really comical too, worth watching in a theatre.

Was going to go watch this, but I had Avatar planned in mind first D; Probably going to use my AMC tickets to go watch this tonight or probably next week. I was pretty sad going into the theater on Christmas; there was 3 lines for Avatar, but none for Sherlock Holmes D;

A fun movie with good humor and superb acting.

I'm not sure if I enjoyed this movie or not, though, because half of my mind was busy daydreaming about my boyfriend (can someone say separation anxiety? ).

For the parts where I was fully there, I enjoyed the movie. It's not something that I would usually watch, but I still found myself still pretty engaged with the plot.

One thing that I particularly enjoyed (aside from Jude Law's rocking mustachio) was the soundtrack. AWESOME, AWESOME musical score that I personally felt captured the feel of the movie pretty well.

One thing that I did not particularly enjoy was Rachel McAdams inconsistent acting. She swings between a British accent and an American accent (though usually in the latter), and it totally pissed me off. I think they could have chosen a better person for the role, because the entire time I could only picture her as the stupid blonde chick from Mean Girls rather than the clever and daring brunette she was supposed to be playing as
