Just over a year on, and we're still a little stunned by how entertaining Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" turned out to be. Seemingly displaying the reboot mentality that's been Hollywood's curse the last few years, and coming from a director who hadn't turned out anything watchable in a decade, the film has its share of problems (principally the redundancy of Rachel McAdams' character and a sub-par final set piece), but the chemistry of its leads, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, carried the picture, and ensured it was one of the more quietly enjoyable tentpoles in recent memory.

Alright, continuing with our Most Anticipated Films of 2011 series which will roughly be in four parts (unfortunately, character/size limits prevent us from doing one massive feature). Here's part one which we published yesterday. If you're wondering where some of the tentpoles were yesterday -- "X-Men: First Class," "Cowboys And Aliens" and "Sherlock Holmes" -- well, they're here. If you were asking, whether indie-driven auteurs would be represented -- Lynne Ramsay's return with "We Need To Talk About Kevin," Mike Mills' "Beginners" or David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" -- well, they're all here too. The way these lists are lumped together is a bit arbitrary, so don't fret, lots and lots more Most Anticipated Films of 2011.

Anatomy of a Hollywood tentpole: though "Sherlock Holmes 2" is deep into production, apparently some of the ideas within are still "in the process."

The hottest thing out of Sweden since IKEA, Volvo and Björn Borg.
