    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.... One of the worst films I've ever attemped to watch [gave up two thirds in] Crap acting from Downey Jr. with some underused talent elsewhere. A total mess and muddle of a plot, that became a total bore.

    Guy Richie can :censored: bog off :tsk:

    Yeah, I couldn't watch the first one they came out with starring Downey Jr.
    For me, and it's my little cross to bear, I feel Jeremy Brett was as close to Holmes as you'll ever get.

    Hammett (1982).
    Somewhat interesting once you get into it.
     
  3. Of course I share you affliction. He did that role so well that some say it killed him.....Darn it!

    David Suchet has done the same amount of work and research to become Hercule Perot.
    Anything he could get his hands on about the character....
    It's paid off IMHO.

    Man of Steel on Saturday. Darker than Batman? Probably not, but it's been Nolanized into a superperson for the post-moderns, with some crude language thrown in. I say this as a fan of the re-booted Batman films by Nolan and Inception. As someone in a preceding post noted, it could be better with more characterization and less fighting. The action sequence on the street in Smallville and the climatic clash in New York, however, are amazing.

    First instinct is to say " no," but If done well, maybe.
    :D

    I still say if he's not wearing underoos over tights I ain't watching.

    They're no Christopher Reeve. Or George Reeves.
     
  12. George Reeves! Now there was a Superman!
     
  13. ..and a good Lois..great Jimmy...and best Perry..bar none!
     
  14. Great Caesar's ghost!
     
  15. Yes, but clearly not faster than a speeding bullet.

    What, too soon? :D

    Years ago I read an interview with Alice Cooper in which he stated he saw Jack Larson on a commercial air flight and, without thinking, blurted out, "Hey, Jimmy Olsen!" He said Larson good-naturedly shushed him and replied, "I'm still trying to live that down." lol
     
  16. What he needed to do was leave the mobster's girlfriend alone. :eusa_doh:
     
  17. Live it down! He was the best there ever was. Just goes to show that actors back then underestimated their value.....
     
  18. Yeah..the best Jimmy..but..typecast.
     
  19. I always interpreted Larson's remark as a reference to his having been typecast as Jimmy Olsen, as HoosierDaddy mentioned above.
     
  20. So you take advantage of it. There was plenty of money involved in being Jimmy. :p He could play Jimmy's grandfather in the new ones. :p
