#6 Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Holmes and Watson investigate a series of murders that seem to be connected to some occult tribe performing sacrifices and rituals. The entire movie is somewhat shrouded in mystery and even features some magic which makes it even more exciting to watch and you actually become curious yourself how Holmes will find an explanation for everything that's happening or has happened.
This was another movie recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad that he did. I enjoyed the film and I thought Downey's performance of Holmes was just plain awesome. I also assume that any fan of fighting sports/martial arts will enjoy the fight scenes, although these are limited and I would've liked to see more of them. For some reason I also enjoyed the music/soundtrack a lot while this isn't something I usually pay a lot of attention to while watching. So thumbs up there as well.
A sequel, called Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, is currently in production so I'll be sure to watch and review that one as well once I get a chance to!
