    Sherlock Holmes end credits

    Just saw Sherlock Holmes, loved it, but did anyone else end up staying for the end credits?

    For every page of names and stuff they took a still from the movie and turned it into a sepia watercolour painting. Not sure if they were actual paintings or just funky Photoshop filters, but cool none the less.

    One of many films where the credits were really enjoyable to watch, along with Casino Royale, Juno and Wall-E.

    Yeah the credits were very good... The movie was surprisingly good too... But I wasn't aware at first that Guy Ritchie directed the movie... That guy's good....

    I was pretty surprised at the quality of the movie myself. I hope it pulls a dark knight (i.e. a good first movie, and an insanely good second movie).

    wasnt the fact that there was a boxing match that utilizes fluctuating tie speed a dead give away?

    I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan and I've loved it. It was the most accurate portrayal of the character I've seen on film. They really got everything down except for his cocaine usage which was only implied if you knew to look for it.

    yeah they were pretty sly about the drugs but the characters were really great.

    Come to think of it though, I was really impressed by the portrayal of Watson. I'll admit I'm not a particularly huge fan of the origional stories so I'm not really familiar with him, but it always seemed like he was just there to be stupid and make Holmes look even smarter (Holmes: "Well constable, I would be happy to explain the entire mystery to you but you must first allow me to wipe the drool from Watson's chin"). I really liked that he could hold his own.

    Saw the film last night and rather liked it. In fact, RDJ's portrayal felt spot-on to me (as was Watson's!). Some self-professed Sherlockians seem to forget that the literary Holmes could handle himself quite well in hand-to-hand combat, and had the capacity to be a disheveled socially awkward mess. Likewise in the stories Watson is far from the bumbling idiot sidekick other directors apparently see him as. He was a doctor, a veteran, and extremely wise. But it has to be understood that Holmes was an eccentric pompous ubergenius who was often quite caustic toward Watson (as well as pretty much everyone else)...and I think this movie did a fine job demonstrating that particular fact.

    I didn't mind the copious amount of explosions or even the slightly lolsy plot in the slightest...the story was well-told and the cinematography was lovely. There was so much going on I could let myself believe that I was getting a curious glimpse of some sooty late nineteenth century London back-alley. Could have done without the ooc romance, but what are you going to do.

    Sorry for the ramble. To sum it up I am a long-time fan of the original stories and I think Ritchie did a awesome job with this latest adaption.

    Wiggum, I agree! I was so happy that Watson has a bad-ass in his own rights. He's hardly a sidekick, but half of an equal two man team.

    Yup....I stayed and watched all the credits.
    The ending sequence was credited to Fugitive Studios.

    They were actually graphite sketches with filters over them and they were done by a guy name Jorge Almeida who teaches over at the Watts Atelier.

    There's another thread about this here :

    He smokes black shag tobacco in the short stories, so that would logically be in his pipe during the movies. If you are implying that he was smoking cocaine...
