    Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), right, faces off against the evil Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris) in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," now on DVD.


"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows"

Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as clever crime-solver Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law stars as his sidekick, Watson, in this action-packed sequel. This time, they are dealing with the brilliant and quite evil Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris). He seems to be connected with chaos around the world, tied to his ownership of a weapons factory that clearly benefits from the spread of war.

It's fun to watch the cat-and-mouse game that the trio engage in, while the settings around the world add to the feel of the film. Holmes even has a romance with a gypsy woman (Noomi Rapace). The film is filled with suspense, action, comedy and plenty of good and bad guys to keep you entertained throughout.

"Chicago in Chicago"

Hits include "Make Me Smile," "Colour My World," "Hard Habit to Break," "You're the Inspiration," "If You Leave Me Now," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is," "Saturday in the Park" and more.
