Guest Movie Reviewer: Sherlock Holmes
Every day of my life I've awakened with other crows--first my mom and dad and brother and sisters, and then all our friends and neighbors sharing the big roost. If someone really died every time a crow appeared, whoa--who would be left? So much as I thought Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law were the perfect human version of Holmes and Watson, I MUCH prefer the Kevin Corvid production that featured Casey Crow as Holmes and Charles Chickadee as his faithful sidekick and partner, using their wits, not violence, to bring down the most nefarious criminal hawks and shrikes.
I am looking forward to seeing the next one, just to see who they cast as Moriarty. It will, of course, be hard to find a human who can do as well as Marcus Magpie did--matching Holmes's intelligence and wit perfectly. I don't know that the human world has an actor who could truly be a match for Downey. But we'll see.
