Holmes x2 by MyDearWatson Holmes x2 by MyDearWatson
EDIT: GAH! BY THE WAY, MERRY CHRISTMAS, GOD BLESS, MY CHRISTMAS PIC SHOULD BE UP ON OR THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS OR SUMTHIN.

Remarkably similar to my Watsonian St. Patrick's Day comic, a new comic from me!

It's... well... I think it needs some explaination, probably.

Sherlock Holmes...?

Robert Downey Jr.?

I say NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Please NOOOO! :iconsadplz:

Ah, well, whatev.

The real Holmes and Watson aren't too bothered.

They don't believe him, though.

*gigglefest ensues*

(I'd recommend you imagine H and W's laughs similar to Jeremy Brett and David Burke's in The Red-Headed League. Yes, you know of what I speak. If not... um, go watch the Granada Sherlock Holmes series. NOW.)

Everybody is taller than Watson. *sigh* It's a hard life. I should know. *high fives him* He's like... Ringo, but cooler. (Sorry, Ringo. It's true. I'm warning you with Peace and Love.)

Disclaimer: Don't own Robert Downey Jr., the new Holmes movie (too bad, otherwise it might be more canony), Granada, Jeremy Brett, David Burke, the Red-Headed League, or... um... Jeremy's Holmes!Laugh (tm). :(

I cry when I imagine Brett playing Holmes... but that's a question of personal taste ;)

Yeah, I have a friend in 'real life' who doesn't like him too. Personally, I think he really plays it as 'Holmes, just lept off the pages of the books', but that's also just a personal preference! :D Who do you prefer in role?

I like Downey, but I almost like Livanov better (from the Russian series, it's on youtube, if you want to have a look, oh, and don't forget Vitaly Solomin, he's the cutest Watson ever).

What it all comes down to is that a movie is always someone else's vision, not your own. So there's no perfect movie, but I really like all the different versions of "book" Holmes that you get to see here on DA.

Mmhmm, RDJ did a very good job. Oh! I love Vasily Livanov! He's so... Holmesish! :D And yes, Vitaly Solomin is so grumpy looking sometimes, it's so cute. :3 I haven't seen all of those (last I checked, I'd seen all they had on Youtube, but I haven't checked lately) but what I've seen, they're splendid.

That's an extremely good point, and one I've been thinking about a lot, particularly, in a sort of unrelated note, when it comes to versions of Hamlet. I love a lot of versions, but there's always something missing, a lot like with Sherlock Holmes adaptations. Yeah, I love seeing the many varied versions of Holmes on here, people are so creative. (Also, it's great how different the many Watsons are, as he's never described beyond having a mustache in canon.)

LOL I agree! :D It wasn't a bad movie, but so different from canon (yeah, so they had a couple of lines from the books, so what). This movie for me, is like an AU version of the real Holmes I know and love. They took all the characters and sortof stwisted them, to a point where you can't believe you're actually watching a movie about SHERLOCK HOLMES :D

Right, I completely agree. XD Seriously, I went with the mindset that this was some sort of distant cousin of Holmes's with the same name that likes to pretend he's Holmes. :D

Yeah, and he also likes to immitate British accent. :D
You know, when I first saw this movie in a theatre, I didn't know anything about the Holmes universe (well only the stuff EVERYBODY knows, like he's a detective and he has this friend/sidekick called Watson, and they live in Baker street in London) :D
I have to say - this movie inspired me to get to know the REAL Holmes, so I dug out the books, and downloaded and watched the Russian series, since they said it was true to the canon.
After that, I went to watch the movie AGAIN, but this time, I found it considerably less interesting than the first time I watched it.. (And my mom didn't like it right away) :D :D :D
Am I talking too much?
