This post is inspired by my Avatar = FernGully = Pocahontas analysis. Although Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes doesn’t actually look like a CSI Miami spin-off, I could not help but compare certain elements of the movie to my favorite CBS series.
After I saw the must-see detective flick, the first thing that came into my mind was, “Holy smokes! CSI is wasting their money on those fancy computers and gadgets. All you need is someone as brilliant as Holmes and Watson!”
Imagine England in the late 1800s. They didn’t have electricity, the internet, thumb mark analysis, face detection databases, DNA scanners, and all the fancy equipment that CSI’s Calleigh Duquesne (played by Emily Procter) and Eric Delko (played by Adam Rodriguez) use to track down the killers. All the police needed was the uncanny observational skills, addicting wit, and intellectual prowess of Sherlock Holmes (played by Robert Downey, Jr.) and his trusty sidekick Dr. John Watson (played by Jude Law).
Why, the duo could determine what the crime scene’s mysterious powder residue is just by sniffing it! They even could figure out the modus operandi of the fleeting suspect just by looking around for clues—no rubber gloves and evidence bags necessary! In CSI, it takes hours to days of processing evidence before releasing official results, while Sherlock needs only one eureka moment to solve mysteries. Amazing!
There are a few similarities. Both the CSI and Sherlock Holmes are able to consistently draw big conclusions from miniscule clues at the scene. Sherlock’s character is unfailing and omnipotent, just like Miami’s hero Horatio Caine (played by David Caruso). You just know you can count on him to catch the bad guy. And while Horatio manages to keep his suit squeaky clean as he theatrically puts on his trademark aviator sunglasses, Sherlock loves to get down and dirty, after which he lights his signature pipe.
Ryan Wolfe (played by Jonathan Togo) and the rest of the CSI team make fitting sidekicks, each with his/her own distinct sleuthing style. It’s too bad I don’t see a direct Watson resemblance in them.
While Sherlock Holmes is a completely fictional story originally written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, you cannot help but wish that this eccentric character exists in today’s era of modern technology to put real-life CSI employees to shame.
I’d love to dabble into Sherlock Holmes more, but I’d hate to be the movie spoiler. Just watch it and let me know what you think. A word of advice before getting into the cinema: make sure you pay attention to the fast-paced arguments or you’ll miss the microscopic but important details. It’s elementary, my dear.
I could spend the day telling you about the 22 new women that have stepped up and claimed to have had sex with Tiger Woods, but once you hear one story of a money-grubbing cow and the billionaire athlete that spreads too much love, you have heard them all. Instead, I decided to go back in the archives to find some of the bottom celebrity cheaters of the past. This isn’t a Top 7 list, but a Bottom 7 list because we here at Celebrific frown upon cheaters, even if they are getting an upgrade.
Do you know how hard it is to land a hot female actress that understands your life as well as you do? One that seems down to earth and has every man drooling. It’s pretty damn hard I tell you because I have been trying for the past 10 years. Finding the hot ones isn’t the hard part, it’s finding ones that understand you. They just don’t get me.
Well Jude Law had that with Sienna Miller and what did he decide to do? He cheated on her with their nanny. A nanny named Daisy. Seriously? Jude. Seriously? Sienna Miller. Seriously? Tool.
Even more mind-blowing than Jude Law is what Dave Navarro did. He had Carmen Electra. Yeah, that Carmen Electra. Perfection. What does he do? Goes on and bangs Jenna Jameson. I know all the men in the room are thinking what is wrong with banging Jenna Jameson. She was hot back then so it’s not like he downgraded, he sidegraded. That is of course until you take into consideration what Jenna was doing at the time. If you don’t know then you can go Google it yourself.
Dave should’ve kept Carmen, she is a long lasting hottie while Jenna turned into a tunafish spokesperson.
It is always the actors that you least expect to be the ones that have a problem with sexual addiction. First it was Charlie Sheen and now it is David Duchovny. He is married to Tea Leoni, one of my all-time favorite actresses and he has probably bedded around 100+ women in his time of being married to her. She is at the age though where she feels she can’t leavve him to start over so they are trying to work it out. Meanwhile he stars on a show where he is around naked women all the time and gets laid constantly.
Definitely going to work out.
I might get chastised for this one, but I don’t blame Pitt. He wanted children and Jennifer Aniston wasn’t ready to open up the oven. He meets Angelina who is the original octomom and decides that he can have children now, be with a higher paid actress and have crazy sex all the time. This might be the only guy on the list that upgraded himself with the person he cheated with. Well-played good sir, well-played.
Do I even need to go into details on this one? Elizabeth Hurley vs Divine Brown. Idiot.
Angelina Jolie has the distinction of having two of her husbands on this list, but this story is even better than the one with Pitt. In this one, Thornton has a live-in girlfriend that goes by the name of Laura Dern. She goes away to make a movie and comes back to find Thornton is married to Jolie. They never speak again.
That is how you break up with a girl. However, you don’t get props Billy because Jolie left your butt on the curve. Then again, you got to have movie sex with the ex-wife of the cheater below…
This one leaves me speechless. Eric Benet was married to Halle Berry. He cheated on her a lot. Die.
He has 3 children with ex-wife Sadie Frost. Following a recent relationship, Jude Law’s spokesperson has said that the “other party” is pregnant. Even if they are not together anymore, Law says that he intends to fully support the baby.
Heath Ledger was working on the film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus before he died. People speculated how producers would complete it without the lead actor.
Well, they’ve found not just one person to take the role, but three — Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell. However, nobody (not even those stars’ spokespersons) know how the film will be restructured.
Lovely British sweetheart Sienna Miller was seen sun bathing nude in Ibiza, Spain just the other lucky day.Â Doesn’t her highness look quite the cover girl?
Miller was in the fortunate company of fellow Brit actor Rhys Ifans, who, rumor has it, is in love with the Factory Girl star.
Hrmm, not sure what I think about that match.Â But maybe it will be a more constructive relationship than with Jude Law….
British actress &Â all-around crazy personÂ Sienna Miller is apparently desperate to start popping out the babies.
Miller has recently mentioned that she truly misses being with ex-fiance Jude Law’s children & is quite anxious to start her own crazy family.
Apparently Miller & her new man have been giving the idea some thought, according to an insider anyway.
The source reveals, “Sienna misses the kids of her ex, Jude Law, so much that she says she can’t wait to become a mum herself.
“For now though, it’s all about her acting – but she really can’t wait to have her own children. She and Jamie have been inseparable over the past few weeks. It certainly seems very serious.”
Wowzers!Â That is one woman you do not want to date!Â First date & she’s asking you if you’re ready to start a family.Â Watch out!
According to Page Six, before LLÂ heads off to London to shoot her next movie, she wants to make sure she has a pal there first.Â Lohan & Law were spotted at The Box on The Box on Chrystie Street in the wee hours both Friday & Saturday night.
Apparently Lindsay called Jude after eating with her mom Dina & Jason Preston at Stereo.Â The duo met at The Box around 1 am.
“They are adoring one another’s company,” said insider revealed.
But according to LL’s rep, “We don’t comment on our client’s personal life.”Â Yeah, how about a big, yeah right, on that one!
