Holmes For The Holiday

Over this holiday period I will hopefully find time to go and see Sherlock Holmes.

After finally catching serial killer and occult "sorcerer" Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his assistant Dr. Watson (Jude Law) can close yet another successful case. But when Blackwood mysteriously returns from the grave and resumes his killing spree, Holmes must take up the hunt once again. Contending with his partner's new fiancée and the dimwitted head of Scotland Yard, the dauntless detective must unravel the clues that will lead him into a twisted web of murder, deceit, and black magic - and the deadly embrace of temptress Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams).

I was reminded yesterday of another Jude Law film "Alfie" and I'm sure all ladies will remember a certain scene in the film involving him in a white vest whilst playing pool, you know the one ;-)

Back to Sherlock Holmes and a website you might be interested in,  is that of John H. Watson's. Let me know if you see the film over the holiday season and Merry Christmas!
