MaryAnn’s quick take… A great Batman movie, a great superhero movie, and a gloriously bonkers expression of the sublime silliness of crime fighters in capes, and our love of them. I’m “biast” (pro): really liked The Lego Movie
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

Of course he appeared in The Lego Movie a couple years back, but he was a joke, a sideshow, a parody of the Dark Knight.

Holmes and Watson is set to take on the sleuth in a whole new, comedic light. With Etan Cohen in the Director’s chair (Get Hard, Men in Black 3) and our long lost duo in the title roles, we can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue as this project develops.
The film is currently on location in Greenwich, home of time and frequent location choice for various period productions; not forgetting the occasional superhero film, such as Thor: The Dark World (2013). This is not the first rodeo for Greenwich University and the Royal Naval College as far as Holmes adaptations are concerned, oh no, Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows (2011) was also shot here.
Filming is continuing »
