the other ‘Sherlock Holmes’ movie, sex with the Na’vi, more: leftover links

Every week my browser gets cluttered up with tabs for stuff that I stumble across and figure I might be able to use as a Question of the Day or a WTF Thought for the Day or grist for some other post. And inevitably, I end the week with most of that material unused. But there’s no reason to let this stuff go to waste: I can still share it with you, for your amusement, and start the new week with a clean slate.

Herewith this week’s leftover links, in no particular order:
The year’s OTHER Sherlock Holmes film has dinosaurs!

From the Na’vi article:

In human terms, this is like plugging your iPod into your computer except that at the moment when one recognizes the other and they begin to sync, you have an orgasm…this is terribly sexy…

Um, sexy how, exactly?

Sexy for people who hate the sweaty humanness of sex, presumably.

They actually called it ‘Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes’?

Wow, that requires some impressive stones.

I remember a few years ago some women were pretty excited about King Kong on Peter Jackson’s film and he was a monkey

“Rob Zombie to direct CSI Miami episode”?

It sure will be interesting to see white trash rednecks in Miami. The question is how will he get away with using the word “skullf**k” on network television?

Well, Conan Doyle did write one of the first pieces of popular fiction about dinosaurs, so it’s not entirely out of left field. Still, it kinda seems like fanfic that got turned into a screenplay.

I think it takes bigger stones for someone to deliver this snarky put-down on the blog for “SyFy,” the network that gave us “Mansquito” and “Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.” Pot, meet kettle.

And this, ladies and gents, is where the interwebs gets the idea that Cameron has created the ultimate fan fic for furries.
