I recently saw Sherlock Holmes and two things stuck with me; Sherlock Holmes is a douchebag and Jude Law is awesome. I could rant all about Holmes’ douchetitude but if Steveblog is about anything, it is about positivity so I am going to focus on Jude Law. Plus it gives me the opportunity to mention Jude Law a lot and boost my search results. If there is any justice in this world, yes that was a pun, dumbass, then I would be the first result for Jude Law. Really, I should be the first result always but I am willing to let other people have the spotlight sometimes.
After Sherlock Holmes, I thought I had seen three straight theatre movies starring Jude Law. Extra thought told me that I managed to squeeze Avatar in there too… and that one of the movies didn’t actually star Jude Law. Not only was he not in the movie, but it was blatantly obvious that he was not in it. No, the man in question is Aamir Khan and the movie was 3 Idiots. The other two movies were The Participarium of Mister Farmhasle… err…. the The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Sherlock Holmes. I know I already mentioned Holmes several times, but I really cannot be too careful with your attention span.
Right, speaking of short attention spans, you might be wondering how I would confuse Aamir Khan with Jude Law. That is totally a valid question, especially because they are incredibly, obviously not the same person. I could blame my societal influences that encourage me to force the unknown into a nice, familiar box, but that would be wrong. The blame lies entirely on the runtime of the movie. You see, Bollywood movies tend to be longer than your average Hollywood movie (excluding The Watchmen, which was approximately 10 years long). The long runtime gave me more scenes where I thought “Hey! He looks like Jude Law, only not American” until eventually I thought “Hey! That’s Jude Law”. It also didn’t help that his love interest kept reminding me of Paris Hilton. Don’t take my word for it, just check out the convenient photopictures below!

Uncanny, isn’t it? And yes, her head is that big.
The point of this overly elaborate, yet marginally interesting comparison is that I have
issues… an appreciation of Jude Law… issues… a sharp eye. That and 3 Idiots and Sherlock Holmes were entertaining movies. The Imaginarium, not so much. It had its moments and definitely had some great concepts but it is what you would expect from a movie where a presumably principle actor dies during filming. I say presumably because the way the story played out his character was arguably the 4th most important character and auxiliary to the plot.
Whoops, for a second there I forgot who I was talking to. You should be happy to know that Youtube has the Marmaduke trailer! Now scoot, you socially maladjusted hooligans!
