68. May 29, 2010 - Sherlock Holmes (2009)

This is just as good watching it a second time and almost as effective when watched on DVD as in the theaters (since, let's be honest, nothing is as effective as seeing a great action movie on a giant screen). I am still solidly behind the casting of Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law as Holmes and Watson and I'm excited that they have announced a release date for the sequel (December 16, 2011). My favorite scene is still that Holmes takes the time at the end to break down his enemy's "mystical" plans, showing that while this version of Holmes sometimes strips down and boxes to release stress, he's still a logistical genius. Mark Strong's Lord Blackwood never stood a chance.

My first thoughts on this one are here.
