Sherlock Holmes

I needed a break before going home tonight. Like watching a movie.
Why not Sherlock Holmes? I had 10 mn to drive from work to the parking lot, find a place for my car, walk to the cinema and buy my ticket for the English version. Or 30 mn to go to the French version...Uhuh. But the luck was with me. No traffic, a parking place at once. They were making the last call when I arrived at the cinema, so I did not have to queue for the ticket. I even had time to make myself comfortable before the movie started. The English one!
At the beginning, I was a  bit surprised. I expected something slow. It was very lively instead. Sherlock and Watson are also much younger than I expected, but, well, this has advantages :-). London is as expected it. Even better. On the whole, I like it very much. And I'm glad I made it to the English version. I'm sure the French one misses the humour and the accents. And I'm sure there will be a sequel.

If you can, go and see it, you won't regret it.

I have wanted to see this movie but my husband doesn't think he would like it. Hmmmm I might just go without him.

I wish that I was bilingual. It must be a blessing in many ways.

We saw it about a month ago, and loved the loony Sherlock and his is adorable Watson. A great flick.

I have not seen it yet but I am very very impressed that you can watch it in English AND understand all the humor and everything. I wish I could say the same for my French *sigh

You're amazing. period.
