Holiday Movies

Saw two movies the past two days. Lots to look forward to this holiday season. Today I saw "Blind Side", the true story of homeless black youth taken off the street by a wealthy Memphis wife and mother. Sandra Bullock makes up for the disastrous "Where is Steve" and overpasses "The Proposal". Don't leave before the credits. 4****/5
"Fantastic Mr. Fox" deserves the rave reviews that it is getting. Animation done with precision puppets directed by Wes Anderson, who can't fail IMO. Voices by George Clooney and Meryl Streep with Bill Murray and William DeFore in surprising roles. And who can beat a sound track including Burl Ives. 3***/5

Saw the previews of "Sherlock Holmes". Appears to be Sherlock imbedded with 007.
Will have to see it however because of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. And since my books to film group having read and viewed the "Hound of the Baskervilles." True Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fans, be warned.
