A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

It took me almost two weeks to complete this short story, but if you love Sherlock Holmes, I think you will enjoy it!  Join the immortal Great Detective and his faithful companion Dr. Watson on a chilling adventure set in the spring of 1910 . . .

And then there was Holmes and Watson in theaters December 25, 2018. With Will Ferrell as Holmes, John C. Reilly as Watson, and Ralph Fiennes as Moriarty, What I have seen of the trailer leaves me underwhelmed, as do most humorous versions of the story. I imagine that Indy's take on the story is better than this.

I already want to punch Will Ferrell in the nose for what he did to LAND OF THE LOST; if his Holmes movie is as bad as it looks I may add a kick in the crotch to my list of planned interactions with him.

To be honest,  indy,  the ONLY will Farrell movie I liked was "stranger than fiction'.

And  we agree on LotL.  Just one stupid body waste joke after another...

ELF was cute.
And I thought his impersonations of GWB on Saturday Night Live were hilarious.
But overall, not an artist whose work I particularly admire.

Since you're a Holmes fan how did you like Downey's version? What about Benedict Cumbatch on his BBC series

And I hope you liked the story I linked to. It was a twist...

I haven't read your story link yet but I will try to get to it this week.
Downey's version was a failure, IMO.  I saw where they were trying to go with it - but it just didn't quite achieve its purpose.
Cumberbatch, though - I think his was the BEST modern portrayal of Holmes that I have ever seen!  I watched every episode of SHERLOCK and loved it!
