Ooops!

In my review of Sherlock Holmes, I referred to the Edwardian era.  The stories were all set in the late Victorian.  Victoria reigned until 1901, when Edward VII succeeded.

My mistake.  Happy New Year!

Sherlock Holmes
Director: Guy Ritchie
With: Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong, Eddie Marsan

What you think of this film will have a lot to do with whether you have read the Holmes stories.  I have been reading them since I was a child, and parts of this film made me squirm.
This is a “re-imagining” of the classic character, which is fine as a general rule, and I shrugged and gave myself over to it.  After all, writers and film-makers have been playing with Holmes for years.
