Yay Holmes Movie, Boo Critics Who Don't Read Source Material

I'd been dubious about the Holmes movie, given the trailers, but decided to see it after two things happened. First, mneme read me the NYT review of the movie, which had me going, "But, Holmes does that in the stories! Didn't this guy read them? I've only read a few of the stories, and I know better!"

(I've read maybe half a dozen of the stories and Hound of the Baskervilles.)

The second was that osewalrus recommended it in a detailed review that I did not find too spoilerific for my tastes (YMMV), explaining that, yes, everything did have backing from the source, and that the two worst bits from the trailers, including the one I'd seen and detested, were taken completely out of context by said trailers.
