4)  Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Guy Ritchie, a man who up to this point had been best known for one very successful film and one very public marriage, may have seemed a strange choice to bring the character of the broody, introverted Holmes to the big screen.

However his film which had the detective confronting the serial killing and occult dabbler Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong)  was a smash, perfectly casting Robert Downey Jr as a dandy with an eye for the girls in the form of Rachel McAdams, whilst perfectly at ease with his feminine side and flirting outrageously with Jude Law’s bemused and frustrated Watson.

Richie took a characteristically ‘smoking barrels‘ approach to the whole preposterous proceedings without losing Holmes’ Victorian roots, and it appears, from trailers of the new film, that he may manage it again.
