Which Sherlock Holmes Movie Would You Rather See?


There was Sherlock Holmes movie news recently (Guy Ritchie looking to re-invent the old sleuth story) and now there's more Sherlock Holmes movie news (Sacha Baron Cohen playing Holmes, Will Ferrell to play Watson in, of course, a comedic version). Can we call it a Sherlock Holmes "surge" or "trend" yet?

Regardless, there are two Holmes projects in the works and both sound intriguing. Especially now that I've seen the (freaking amazing) trailer for Ritchie's upcoming RocknRolla, I can't wait to see what kind of Sherlock Holmes movie Ritchie can create.

At the same time, Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell? Um, yes, please. They're funny together in Talladega Nights, and this movie has the potential to be hilarious, especially with Judd Apatow producing (though we know that's not always the sure sign of a great flick).

Which of these sounds more interesting to you?

There is no way that the Will and Sasha version will be short of genius. I'm excited for it already.

I love Sherlock Holmes! A Study in Scarlett is probably my fave! I want the more serious movie, the one that recognizes Holmes never said, "Elementary, my dear Watson". So I'm going to watch Guy Ritchie's

I love the Sherlock Holmes stories. Everybody should check them out. Such fun little mysteries! I'd probably see the more serious version first.

I love Guy Ritchie's older movies, but he hasn't made a good movie in a number of years...really since Snatch. But maybe with a good script he could make it really good again. I really don't like Sacha Baron Cohen though, so pass on that. I'd actually like to see Will Ferrell as Sherlock and get someone who is more of a "straight man" to play Watson. I think I would like a gritier Ritchie version better than a comedy though.

I'll plan on seeing Ritchie's, but wait and see on Will & SBC's version - lots of talent, lots of success could equal two big egos that spin out of control.
