Finally saw Sherlock Holmes

Was not quite what I expected. The characters were charming and fun - LOVE the Holmes and Watson dynamic - and I dug the steam-punk atmosphere but the thing could have used a tighter story. Also, I have the hardest time understanding RDJ when he speaks really fast. Love the guy but he should come with his own subtitles. :)

Still have not seen Avatar. And not sure if I want to. I heard it's like "Dances with Wolves" in space and I was so, so, soooo incredibly bored during DWW. Maybe the effects will carry me through one sitting but with films that long, I honestly need more than that. So, I ask you flist, is it worth it?

Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who was bored to death by DWW. I didn't even finish it. I heard Avatar is more like Pocahontas, though.

I loved Sherlock Holmes dearly :D I could watch it over and over :)

Definitely not. It was tortoruous.

I'm debating where to see it. In the sanctity of my home in bad quality or drive by the cinema after work - they have 3D - and watch it "au natural". Hm.

The characters were really great. Somehow I only saw Jude Law in really depressing roles before, had no idea he could be so witty and charming. I am looking forward to possible sequels.

I don't plan on seeing it at all. Life's too short for that.

Indeed. I never thought Jude Law would've made a good Watson but he was fantastic. Also I think rumour is RDJ turned down a profitable role because it would have clashed with the shooting of SH ". *crosses fingers* I didn't even mind the women, though as ewanspotter pointed out so wisely, most of the time the film feels like, "Wait--there's a woman in there?" :-)

Oy, not a help here, i loved DWW and i was bored with Avatar to death. So poor writing i couldn't even imagine.
But i liked Sherlock though :) Not a Sherlock i know but RDJ was awesome.
