* ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', a movie directed by Creator/GuyRitchie with Creator/RobertDowneyJr. as Holmes and Creator/JudeLaw as Watson released on Christmas Day 2009. Response to the trailer, [[NeverTrustATrailer which basically strung the comedic moments together]] to make it look more like a spoof than an actual Holmes story, was... controversial... in fandom. The movie received mostly positive reviews, and critics praised Downey Jr's portrayal as the detective (for which he won a Golden Globe) and the chemistry between him and Law. And it was a box-office hit. A sequel to this film, titled ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'', came to theaters in December 2011 with Jared Harris as Professor Moriarty and Creator/StephenFry as Mycroft Holmes.
