Just Jared has put up some photos of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as Watson from the set of Guy Ritchie's new action take on the character. With all the ascots and suspenders, it's like a regular accessories seldom used in modern culture convention on that set! I don't know.

More shots here, of a Chaplin-esque Sherlock.

Geez. I don't remember all those times that Sherlock Holmes was a giggling fool. I guess I'll have to go back and reread A.C. Doyle....

must be high

"With all the ascots and suspenders, it's like a regular accessories seldom used in modern culture convention on that set! I don't know."

Are you confused or something? This film is set in the 1890s...over 100 years ago...why would there be modern day accessories used in it? Are you sure you watch stuff?

Wow, also didn't realize that they had a modern day background behind them and a guy with light meters around his neck. Buuuuuut I'm totally sure if I go back and reread all my Sherlock Holmes books I'll find it... Oh waaaiiiit a second.... THEY'RE NOT BEING FILMED AND THE CAMERAS PROBABLY AREN'T ROLLING!!!! That's it. By God we have it. Case Closed.... Douche.

ha ha, they're so goofy lookin x)
I was expecting Ed Norton for Holmes, but he should be pretty good.

La Douche -- is your last name BAG??

@ ang:

Try reading the sentence you are criticizing again. Maybe out loud. If you still don't see how you misinterpreted it, ask someone to explain it.

I did...they don't get it either...everybody is in agreement..."I don't know" means "I don't know." If you have an other-wordly interpretation of it, please share.

@ 9
He's saying you're a dumb twat who doesn't understand sarcasm. I won't comment either way, as I am a nonpartisan commenter.
@ 7
Someone who names themselves "La Douche" will not care about your attempt to label them a "douchebag." Just a heads up there.

Wow, ang, you are a moron; and apparently surrounded by morons. The 'i don't know' part isn't relevent to your original comment.

You have highlighted the sentence "With all the ascots and suspenders, it's like a regular accessories seldom used in modern culture convention on that set!"

And you replied by pointing out that modern day accessories should not be used in a period piece set in 1890.

But no one suggested they should use modern accessories.

The writer brought up the fact that they appear to be utilizing accessories that are not often (seldom) used in modern culture. So much so that it is like a "convention of accessories no longer frequently used in our modern culture". And it was a terrible joke, which is why the next sentence simply said 'I don't know'

You see: the writer mentioned that they are using archaic dress/accessories and you rebut with 'why would they use modern dress/accessories, it is from 1890?' Do you see now why that was a non-point?

You can't frame a response as a rebuttle when you are bringing up a totally different subject or disagreeing with a point not actually made.

I hope you aren't as embarrassed as I was having to explain something, so (pardon the expression), elementary...

i look at those images and think...hobo house.

which is odd because house is modeled after sherlock holmes

Oh, good god, Whistle...if I read "I don't know" following a sentence, I assume the thought relates to the previous sentence. I don't need your foolish dissertation on the meaning of the words. It was absolutely a confusing sentence, not even worded well, about the use of accessories that are seldom used now, followed by "I don't know". So tell me how that's supposed to make sense. Anyway, who cares...didn't realize I had stumbled onto a group of hypersensitive idiots who can't put two sentences together, and yet expect others to understand them.

They're called braces, not suspenders. Get it right, prole.

Ang,

Looks like someone needs thier diapey checked!

Know you know what happens when you 'assume'.

Talk about 'hypersensitive'.

And whistle was right, you are a moron for not understanding that and for your subsequent reaction. I don't know (oops, I just confused you).

Wow, someone let ang off the meds today.

Oh come on guys...don't be be like that...sure, we said some things that we can't take back, but can't we try to keep it together for the kids?

Ah, seriously, you little, little, tiny, tiny, insignificant boys/girls/trannies....(don't want to "assume", because in truth, I would have guessed 12-year-old girls)...I'm moving on to more significant areas of play but just want to wish you all and your hands a very lovely evening! Use plenty of lotion, because I hear it makes it silky smooth and cuts down on the rawness. Perhaps you could cluster...oh wait, you already have, haven't you?

Hey, remember when we argued about "I don't know?" That was pretty funny, wasn't it? Good times, good times.

It amazes me that people are STILL discovering trolling. And amazes me more that others still haven't!

Movie looks just interesting enough. I for one am glad for RJD's success; about six years ago he did an interview on Howard Stern where Stern grilled him about his jail time and RJD had all he could do to keep from walking because he didnt' wanna talk about it but had NOTHING else to talk about. He's a long way from there.

Footnote: Grammar trolling is in the same ring of trolling as Your-moming and Chuck Norrising. Just sayin.

Also he's come even farther by shaving off that awful i-ate-pudding-in-the-90's goatee.
