Sherlock Holmes Movie Review by Mike Thomas (6/19/2010)

Since there were so many reviews of this movie, I decided to cut to the chase: Who is the adventurer who has bare-chested fist fights, dives out windows, uses high-tech gadgets, and saves the girl? If you were thinking James Bond or Indian Jones, you might have been correct, but not in this case.

Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his ubiquitous ally, Watson...

Sherlock Holmes Movie Review by Zara (5/23/2010)

If the studios had allowed Guy Ritchie to go in the direction that he wanted to, there would have been a lot more of the fun "ambiguously gay duo" vibe that is hinted at throughout this movie. Instead, being afraid of the ramifications of alluding to Holmes and Watson being closer to one another than most people feel...
