Holmes for the Holidays

Well, it was a good Christmas.  I’m alwys glad to see family at this time as it is doubtful I’ll be able to next year.  The fact there was no snow only helped make it a good Christmas.

I saw Sherlock Holmes today with Chantale.  I’ve always thought Robert Downey Junior was a good actor, but ther wasn’t anything I’d want to see him in.  Now with this and Iron Man, and Iron Man 2 this may, he is now one of my favorites.  The movie was well done, with a interesting story.  Jude Law was great as Watson.  Between this and Iron Man, Downey is scoring big playing heroes with substance abuse issues (Iron Man’s being alcohol and Holmes being cocaine, though neither were shown in the movie)  4/5.
