Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

It seems a lot of folk had a problem with Guy Ritchie's vision of Sherlock Holmes, in his 2009 movie. It wasn't faithful to the original character, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be turning in his grave, blah, blah, blah. Well, I wasn't one of those. I've read some of the original books and I grew up watching the Basil Rathbone flicks, and I loved the 2009 movie. After all, Holmes is a character and how Ritchie interpreted that character was up to him. So, I personally cannot wait until December 16th, when A Game of Shadows open at theaters. Back for more is Ritchie at the helm again, with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law once again filling the shoes of Holmes and Dr. Watson. The fact that Stephen Fry is in this one should be enough in itself to warrant a viewing!

Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson join forces to outwit and bring down their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty.
