The English—inventors of the internet and the language you're reading right now. But what have they ever done for us?

Well, stretching a point, there's the famous English detective Sherlock Holmes (who was created by a Scotsman, but what the hell). Holmes has been depicted onscreen more times than any other fictional character, with the possible exception of the Wilhelm Scream Guy. For a hundred years, filmmakers have taken a reverential approach to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved creation. Welcome to the 21st Century.

Join Sherlockian Film Expert* Matthew J. Elliott as he guides you through Guy Ritchie's epic without the aid of a magnifying glass. This commentary is also available in 2-D for those who get a headache wearing the special glasses.

*Yes, really. Who knew there was such a thing? Or that “Sherlockian” was a word?

Exciting! Now to wait for the disc from Netflix.

I really like this movie and am excited for the riff.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Well the opening joke has aged about as well as the corpse of its subject (that whole business at Penn St probably not helping), and then we appeared to be exploring the question, "what if original Disembaudio sang ALL the time?"

But then came the callback to the Grasses short and all was forgiven.

I have to say the line about Beethoven was my favourite thing I have ever heard, period.

Loved it this riff... I think this is my favorite RiffTrax Presents of Matthews so far. I got many of chuckle out of the one liners. And secret be told, one of my guilty pleasures is that I actually like this movie. So having the Riffing commentary along side it was a bonus.

Thank you MJE for another fantastic offering!

I have a few questions, if they have already been posted I appologize.

1) Do you do all the writing yourself?  I think you have fantastic wit and timming.

2) Why haven't you worked with Mike, Kevin, or Bill?  I think you riffing is tailor made to bounce off of, or have back and forth with another riffer.

Very funny stuff.  Keep 'em comming.

I know I'm in the wrong area of the forum for this, but since this thread is active:

Just showed Janelle (my lady friend) and her brother the Dark Water riff (we're in a chronological riff marathon), and they both really enjoyed your style... which made me happy.

The brother's words:  "This movie is horrible... but the commentary is hillarious! I'm loving this guy!"
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

My liege

Thanks so much for the kind words - I had to check to make sure I hadn't written it under an alias. Again.

To answer your questions:

1) Yes, I do all the writing alone, with the exception of Armageddon, which was nearly three damn hours long. Working solo is one of the reasons I don't get to record as many riffs as I'd like - my other writing commitments take up a lot of my time (and yes, I did have to check my DVD of The Commitments to be sure there was only one "T" in it. 

2) That's something you'll have to ask Mike, Kevin and Bill. They're my heroes, and of course I'd love to riff with them on something, but I have no idea what financial outlay or technical preparation that would require at the US end of operations. Maybe if you wrote your congressman...

2012, by the way, will be my fifth year with RiffTrax Presents. I'm not saying I want anyone to organize a street party or a parade... not a big one, anyway. Do it if you must, but don't embarass yourselves.
