Much better McAdams is not Kruger

Sherlock Holmes premiered in Germany today – check Rachel McAdams on the carpet in Berlin looking much lovelier than at previous tries during the Sherlock promotional tour. Wasn’t feeling the old lady look. It’s an improvement for sure, but it also ain’t no Diane Kruger who brought the edge but not the upstage overdress.

I smutty tingled about this a few days ago...

Have you seen Sherlock Holmes? And Rachel’s performance? The strength of the film is the chemistry between RDJ and Jude Law. The weakness of the film, aside from an unnecessarily twisty plot, was McAdams. You know I love her. But that role was totally miscast.

Laura and Michelle thought Rachel Weisz would have been an excellent candidate. Sure. But, just to be contrarian, wasn’t the point of that part that she end up forgettable? I mean the way she’s – SPOILER ALERT – dismissed at the end, rather painlessly in fact, implies that Holmes really, after it all, didn’t care much for her. Or perhaps that’s what ended up happening after Guy Ritchie worked with her.

Maybe it’s just me but I get a distinct no-homies vibe between the two of them. In their interviews, there’s some tension. And not the sexual kind.

But now it’s a million different tangents when the only two points I wanted to make in the first place were that: 1. I like her dress but I don’t love her dress it and Diane’s ensemble is better and 2. She was rather disappointing in Sherlock Holmes, agree or disagree?

Also, I’m totally convinced that the mystery villain will be Brad Pitt. Remember that.
