WOW. I've seen quite a few Top Ten lists of Holmes films: Top Ten Best, Top Ten Worst, etc. But Rob Hunter at slashfilm.com has really outdone himself: he has watched SEVENTY Holmes adaptations from film and TV and ranked them, worst to best. Pretty impressive accomplishment! You can read Part One of this gargantuan undertaking at the link below...
I stumbled over this AV Club article about a bizarre German cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid,"which for some reason is about Sherlock Holmes. You can watch video of the cover below...the world is a crazy place.
In case your German is a little rusty, I ran the lyrics through Bing's translator, and here's what it spit out:
Fog moves in dense clouds
across the Moor from Forest Hill
Green spooky grins a WISP
it is night in Baskerville
who spread fear and terror
who destroyed, what he wants
everybody is looking to hide
before the Hound of the Baskervilles
Wen they are incurred
This Hound of the Baskervilles, oh yeah
in the fight for Baskerville, oh, yeah
and it dares not soul
in the Dark Moor into
everyone trembles for his life
who is probably the Be next?
Today the mission is completed
that his mad master gave him
silent, how he once got
he sneaks into the bog down
fog moves in dense clouds
across the Moor from Forrest Hill
And hides the puzzle question
to the Hound of the Baskervilles
