    Are you aware that Sherlock Holmes was created in 1887 by Arthur Conan Doyle? I'm saying this because if you have the "last 2 books", it would be same way impossible to say that there is going to be a sequel, and specially because the movies have little relation with the books.

    Also that apparently Sherlock Holmes is who you see in the film, which is nothing alike as how Holmes is portrayed in the books, even more I would jump to say that the big and interesting reason why Holmes works so good on the books and not in a film is because the narrator on the novels is Watson, so the image we have of Holmes goes according in how Watson construct him and how we observe those perceptions. And this can't be done in a movie. Holmes does fight, but the movie portray him as someone nothing alike respect about fighting and other of his behavior, its a cartoon-ish image.

    The only good things about the movies is that, they are not scared to portray Holmes as an asshole and they took away the hat and the cape. But really, there is nothing more to it, even as a movie its pretty bad, the first one not soo much, as an action film it can be easily enjoyed, but the second was laughable, as it breaks the whole characters dynamics and it takes the characters by their roles and not their actions, in a way it use the first film to support its story.


    And about behavior and consistence. I believe the complete opposite, people are the most consistent things we have, one individual is most of the time really consistent, as humans, is hard for us to try to change our pattern of behavior. Now in a social and bigger scale, it's inconsistent, but I could say that as individuals we are very consistent, just analyze your every day life and see how many times you get out of your pattern of behavior.


    You guys should watch the "Sherlock" british serie, pretty good serie per se, and it also does a good image of Holmes and Watson with a temporal twist.

    the movie follows the evnts of the second to last book. so therefore, they shall make a sequel to follow the events of the last book. duh.

    Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
    Why would you lie about anything at all?
