We saw the Sherlock Holmes movie today…the best thing I can say about it is that it had a rockin’ soundtrack.

I just don’t get the infatuation with these characters. For example, House (who, incidentally, is based on Holmes – arrogant, drug-addicted genius with a name that sounds like a place of habitation, etc. etc. etc.) is wildly popular. I can’t stand him! Why do people harbor affection for these characters? I mean, Watson follows Holmes around like a little sheep, just because he wishes he were as smart as Holmes? The man is insufferable!

Also, Robert Downey Jr.’s British accent is pretty bad, and whenever he starts speaking quickly it becomes completely incomprehensible. Furthermore, the whole movie was basically a ripoff of the Da Vinci code anyway with the whole conspiracy theory, map symbology, schpiel. Yeesh, Hollywood.

I seriously don’t get it. Anyone care to explain?

More knitting to come! Most likely this weekend.

P.S. Merry Christmas to those for whom it’s relevant!
