this could be the worst trailer i have ever seen. remember when michael bay made that film version of wuthering heights with the cyborg heathcliff and the bloodthirsty ghost of linden feasting on catherine's blood? and remember joe eszterhas' all lesbian great expectations set in the brothels of victorian london? oh wait, those don't exist. but thankfully we do have guy ritchie's new sherlock holmes. to say arthur conan doyle is rolling in his grave would be an unnecessary cliche, but i do believe that this could go down in history as the single most egregious filmic interpretation of beloved literature ever, as well as one of the most inaccurate portrayals of a particular period of history that have ever been depicted in a movie. in short, guy ritchie is an utterly untalented hack that in no way deserves to have a role in the film industry outside of maybe gay porn boom mic operator. watch the trailer only if you are in the mood to feel nauseous.
p.s. what's up with that explosion at the end? is that an outtake from the new terminator movie, or is this one of those good old fashioned victorian missile attacks i've heard so much about?
