Holmes!

Since i couldn't get out of work on New Year's Eve, i decided to take this past Monday off. I went down to my friends' house and cooked them dinner, then we went to see Sherlock Holmes.

Awesome! While the story is completely new, it gets the right tone of the world of Sherlock Holmes. The Holmes/Watson banter is perfect. Jude Law is cute as Watson. I could have gone without Rachel McAdams but she wasn't a terrible distraction. The basic plot is about a secret society trying to take over England and, by extension, the world. i was worried about halfway through that they were going to have actual supernatural explanations but ended up being very happy with the movie. a 6!
