009: Reviewing the Facts

9 01 2010

I so want to watch Sherlock Holmes. Besides fangirling for Holmes and Watson, I really want to see if the movie characters will be true to the book. By the trailer, I’m sort of skeptical about Holmes looking like a playboy cassanova, because he isn’t.

I’m a reader, but I don’t usually go for the mystery books. Don’t be surprised that I never took interest in Nancy Drew nor Hardy Boys. But this detective’s story is one that I just recently started reading. And when I did, I was all, “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!” The Holmes stories are awesome and the writing is such an easy read despite the period setting and the formal manner of speaking in those times.

SCENE OF THE CRIME! I found a dead bug on my chest of drawers. I need to call on Holmes.

Now that I think of it, I wonder if Robert Downey Jr’s drug addiction was a factor in him being cast as Holmes. Sherlock Holmes was a cocaine addict, if he wasn’t engrossed in something else. Hmmm
