Yes, it’s true. I didn’t think it would ever happen in my lifetime, but it’s finally come to pass: I’m actually anticipating a movie directed by Guy Ritchie. I kid you not, ladies and gentlemen. There is finally a movie by the ex-Mr. Madonna that I actually want to see, and would be willing to actually pay to see it, to boot. The movie in question is “Sherlock Holmes”, Ritchie’s “re-imagining” of the legendary character, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes (by way of Charlie Chaplin’s The Tramp, it would appear from all the photos we’ve seen of him on the set so far) and former Chris Rock nemesis Jude Law as Watson.
Judging by how Law and Holmes looks in these and past set pictures that have surfaced, I’m going to guess that in this new version of Sherlock Holmes, Watson is the more refined of the two, and that Holmes is something of a sloven hobo with a knack for solving crimes. I could be wrong, of course.
