Sherlock Holmes; An Education; Alice in Wonderland Classic Film Collection

Sherlock Holmes(Warner, $29)In Sherlock Holmes, director Guy Ritchie turns the famous literary sleuth and his sidekick into action heroes, said the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Robert Downey Jr.’s and Jude Law’s ridiculously fun performances as Holmes and Dr. Watson, respectively, make the film a romp.

An Education(Sony Pictures Classics, $29)An Education is “rich, classy, and sharp in a way few films are,” said the Lincoln, Neb., Journal Star. Starring Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan as an English schoolgirl in early-’60s London, the film offers “poignant observations” about coming of age in that particular time and place.

Alice in Wonderland Classic Film Collection(Infinity, $10)Go beyond Tim Burton’s recent remake with this collection, said the Winston-Salem, N.C., Journal. It includes a 1915 silent rendition, two Disney shorts from the 1920s, a 1966 French animated film, and the 1972 musical with Peter Sellers.
