Uma leads the group in listing each of our 5 desert island reads – books that we’d like to take with us when we get stranded in a desert island.  Some of us took some liberties on the topic and decided to list books they haven’t read that they’d like to bring, for whatever practical reasons.

Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes – Official Trailer

May 19, 2009 by

It has been too long, I must admit.  I apologize for that, and I shall make amends.  Starting with this piece of news that got me all sweaty-browed with anticipation: Sherlock Holmes is almost upon us.  The soon-to-be-released showpiece directed by Guy Ritchie stars Robert Downey Jr as the titular character, and Jude Law as Dr Watson.

When the news broke that this film was being made, I was ecstatic, then cautious.  Bob and Jude are hardly the Holmes and Watson of my memories.  However, as Hollywood is wont to do, what we know and love is ‘rebooted’, and made accessible to a more modern audience.

The bad news is the film isn’t out yet for me to pan or praise. The good news is the trailer is, indeed, out.

I’m undecided yet whether I like my Sherlock Holmes so James Bond-ish.
