So I saw Sherlock Holmes tonight.

Because I enjoy Jude Law in a mustache and Stevie Nicks witchcraft and fake suicides ala Harold and Maude, I enjoyed Sherlock Holmes! Immensely! Now I feel like I have to raise an eyebrow whenever I speak, and go around making observances about people I don't know, such as: I HAVE NOTICED THAT YOUR HAIR IS BROWN. THIS MUST MEAN YOU HAVE BROWN HAIR.

I also enjoy looking at the very Sherlock-y McQueen Fall 09 menswear:Also, the entire movie basically went like this:
HOLMES: AN EXPLOSION IS ABOUT TO OCCUR.
WATSON: WHAT DO YOU PROPOSE WE DO.
HOLMES: PREPARE TO PRETEND TO BE IN SLOW MOTION FOR LITERALLY 10 MINUTES. THEN BE READY TO REACT SLIGHTLY AMUSED AT A WITTY REMARK I WILL MAKE IN A MONOTONOUS, BRITISH TONE.
WATSON: SHOULD I ALSO BE READY TO REACT TO YOUR PUPPY DOG-EYED SLASH "WELL, HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT!" SLASH BOB-DYLAN'S-FACE-IN-THE-LAST-FEW-SECONDS-OF-HIS-RECENT-AND-SOMEWHAT-CREEPY-MUSIC-VIDEO EXPRESSION?
HOLMES: YES.

But, Jude Law in a mustache. So.

After reading your post, I'm very tempted to go around making obvious observations about strangers.

This is great. I also enjoy Jude Law's mustache. Hott.

Now, I want to go about with a little notebook and a giant oversized moustache and stare at people suspiciously and say obnoxious things into a tape recorder.

i saw sherlock holmes. we had a blackout in the cinema and some fat man was practically sitting on top of me. he then fell asleep and was snoring so the entire cinema could hear him.

That McQueen model looks angry as hell. Maybe it's the MUSTACHE. Like how Botox can keep you from showing emotions on your face, MUSTACHES can bring that back.

Maybe that's what makes Jude Law such a lovely actor...

I've said it once and I'll probably continue saying it;
Robert Downey Jr. is a babe.
And I definitely felt a Fall 09 McQueen vibe throughout the film.
I really admired Holmes's sunglasses during the broken-grave-of-Blackwood's scene.
Must find screen-shots.

I love Jude Law in a moustache!!That's part of the reason I watched the movie too!!! hehehehe.

Fannah said...

christa elyce said...

i honestly walked into the movie not knowing who was in it...and when i saw jude my heart went fast! i do love robert downey jr. but jude...you are lush!

Katie said...

That was an excellent movie except Rachel McAdams made me want to vomit for hours and I was sad when she didn't actually die. I've been wearing my grey suspender pants and long grey coat so much since I first saw the film it's kind of sad.

Laura said...

I haven't seen Sherlock Holmes yet but Dorian Gray reminded me of McQueen...I posted that exact same picture on one of my blog posts about it actually. Oh the drama...I love it!

Maddie said...

OMG!!! I am dying to see that movie! It looks so good! And the guy in that picture's eyes are freaking me out!

naomi said...

I haven't seen Sherlock Holmes yet, but I'm in love with that McQueen collection. I'm basically a sucker for anything to do with older England (anywhere from Elizabethan to the 60's) so I saw it and died a little of happiness.

kristyfruition said...

it was good? really? I really wanted to watch it until I heard it was an insult to the stories/books. Now I'm conflicted.

firefly said...

Yes, it was AWESOME. I need to speak in caps more often. I also had a review on my blog. I was inspired to make a necklace like Holmes's watch!

silhouette said...

I'm feeling a gothic Cyrano de Bergerac vibe as well. McQueen just knows what he is doing, bravo!

Gladys said...

Haven't seen it out of respect for my British heritage but was highly amused by your script for it. Very witty and sarcastic ( 2 things which are, appropriately, more British than the film probably was).

mmmh reminds me of some russian nobleman for some reason - maybe a la Rasputin? gotta be the stay-away-from-me-or-i'll-beat-you-with-my-cane look...

Helen said...

I just adore your artistic ability. Its just so flawless, I sometimes find it hard to believe you're only like 13. I especially love the first one, it really reminds me of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. :D
