Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows took the #1 spot last weekend, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked came in at the #2 spot. At #3 was Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, New Year’s Eve came in at #4 and The Sitter took the #5 spot.

    Concerning Sherlock Holmes, if you are a ridiculous Matthew Ritchie fan (like me) you’ll like “Game of Shadows” though the ambivalence of Rotten Tomatoes was definitely earned. I’ve heard others complain of gratuitous stylization. Script wise not nearly as refined as the first movie the friendship between Downy Jr. and Law’s Sherlock and Watson still translates as one of Ritchie’s better innovations concerning this classic duo.
