I’m a Sherlock Holmes in the Making

One of my favourite detective of all times is now in a movie, although there's a lot of Sherlock Holmes movie made :p. I've always been a fan of Sherlock Holmes, the private detective in the 19th century that lived in 221b, Baker Street, London. Even though it's fictional, there's really a Sherlock Holmes museum in the same address. I've been there for a visit when I went to London a few years ago. Too bad I don't have digital camera at that time.




So when I heard that I get a chance to watch Sherlock Holmes on the 22nd of December, two days before the premiere on Christmas' Eve from Nuffnang, of course die die I must post this blog post to get myself invited. Seriously, the clues are a dead giveaway. Well, Nuffnang is always very good.

Sherlock Holmes 2009 starring Robert Downey Jr. (yes, Mr. Tony Stark) as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as Dr. Watson. This will be a very different Sherlock Holmes indeed. I watched the trailer and I found it to be more like a 19th Century James Bond lol. I do hope the sarcastic remarks and quirkiness of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is still there.

I wished the clues are more difficult, how to be Sherlock Holmes when it's a dead giveaway? I was already a Sherlock Holmes apprentice when I started reading Sherlock Holmes in my primary school's days. Two of my favourite stories are "A Study in Scarlet" and of course "The Hound of Baskervilles". This is not even elementary Watson. (Actually Sherlock Holmes never did says "It's elementary, Watson." in the stories). If you thought Redrum is an episode from CSI, think again. It actually appeared in one of Sherlock Holmes story. Redrum is actually Murder. The power of deduction. ;)

Ringo put the mystery image in the middle which is quite easy to find.



Where else, KY put it at the end of his sidebar, so you have to scroll down quite a bit to find it.
