Sherlock Holmes: Guy Ritchie's big comeback picture works in much the same way that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid did: by importing a quippy buddy comedy dynamic into a seemingly incongruent time and place, and taking it for a spin. It’s a little overwrought, sure, but as popcorn entertainments go, you could do a hell of a lot worse. (Full review coming later this week.)
An Education: Lone Scherfig's warm, thoughtful period piece (from a perceptive, intelligent screenplay by Nick Hornby) was one of last year's best; any of you Blind Side fans (and I know you're out there), watch this unforgettable Carey Mulligan performance and dare tell me that Sandy deserved that Oscar.
Alvin and the Chipmunks- The Squeakquel: Suprisingly smart and funny! Just kidding, I'm never fucking seeing this.
