I saw Sherlock Holmes yesterday, and goodness, there's a lot of slashy subtext in this movie. To the point where it's not so much subtext anymore as it is, well, text. If you squint a bit it's almost sort of a little bit subversive. Either Guy Ritchie is more clever than his past work would have you believe and decided to stick it to the man by gift-wrapping his movie especially for the fangirls (thank you), or he's just oblivious and homosocialised enough to not realise what kind of film he just did. I suspect it's the latter, but I really hope it's the former.

Anyway, the whole thing is over-the-top, ridiculously violent and I loved it like chocolate.

(Oh, and the treatment of the women in it didn't make me want to stab my eyes out either, which is a nice change.)
