aNewDomain — Even if “Mr. Holmes” is not much more than a picturesque showcase for an actor to mesmerize us once again, that is enough. In this portrayal of an aging Sherlock Holmes, Ian McKellan is absolutely brilliant. Laura Linney is a disappointment.

I give “Mr. Holmes” a B on my latest episode of Cole Smithey’s Movie Week, my short movie-review show. It’s watchable in place below.

This week my Sleeper Pick is “The Look of Silence” (2015).

“A Hard Day” is my Guilty Pleasure Pick. My must-have DVDs this week are “Limelight” (1952), “Grantchester” (2015) and “Spider Baby” (1968).

Enjoy your movie week. For aNewDomain and BMod, I am Cole Smithey.
