The trailer for the new and improved Sherlock Holmes movie is out. As you may know, this is one of two Sherlock Holmes movies, the other set to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen. Anyway, this one looks amusing enough. Robert Downey Jr. gets cooky and British while finding plenty of time to slow motion punch people with his shirt off (he just wanted to destroy something Cockney). See the trailer below.

I’m looking forward to this movie for a lot of reasons, not least of which is that I could happily spend an afternoon braiding flowers into zach galifianakis’s beard. But mostly because I think a movie that combines the early aughts zeitgeist of Dude, Where’s My Car? and the Let’s Just Kill Fucking Everyone approach of Very Bad Things is grievously overdue.
This is not the movie I am thinking of.
Finally. The best trailer I’ve ever seen. Ever. I love you Willy.
Brooklyn Skeptic’s bocce team, Balls Deep, took care of business at the semi-finals last week, and is now all set to play the finals this weekend at Union Hall. Our game starts at 2pm this Saturday, so please come cheer us on (or boo us, we don’t fucking care). The grand prize for the tournament is a limo ride for an evening. If you’re nice enough to us, we might just give you a wave from the sunroof. If you’re not, we’ll probably instruct our driver to run you over.
Former Brooklyn Skeptic contributor ChezJJP was written up in the New York Times after participating in the Park Slope Pork-Off two weekends ago at 5th Avenue bar Loki. Already garnering some celebrity status in the Brooklyn cooking world after winning the Bacon Takedown in Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s champ has now set his meat-hungry eyes on a new competition: The First Annual Brooklyn Beer Experiment. It’s at the Bell House on June 7th. You had better all get your tickets right now.
In the meantime though, we here at Brooklyn Skeptic would just like to offer our most sincere congratulations to ChezJJP for his success, and let him know that we’re all very proud of him. And no matter how big and famous he becomes, he better still be available to make us pulled pork sandwiches.
