Dinner and a Movie: Sherlock Holmes

The Dinner: If you follow the lead of Sherlock Holmes which usually proves clever to do then fine dining with white table cloths and napkins might be fit for the evening. A spot of tea, may be an inspired choice as tea served from fine pots is also consumed repeatedly throughout the film. Another option maybe to dine at the Sherlock Holmes Pub & Restaurant in London located at 10-11 Northumberland St, London WC2N 5DB

The Movie: The caper of Sherlock Holmes is fabulous from beginning to end. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have an incredible witty chemistry as Holmes and Watson. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the film is completely marked with Ritchie style.  However, if one is not familiar with Ritchie’s work the movie will come as a completely fresh take to the Sherlock Holmes figure.  Purists of the famed Sherlock Holmes will either love or hate this movie. Much the new interpretation of Bond, Sherlock Holmes follows the lead of becoming more gritty and violent. Ritchie presents Holmes not only as a brilliant eccentric but a man of brawn as well. Sherlock Holmes kicks butt as a tough guy.   Downey is perfectly cast and delightful. Sherlock Holmes is one of the best films of the year!
