Don't worry, I've been just as busy as ever seeing movies (if not, more so)! And in the process I have seen some good movies and not so good movies. Let me take some time now to reflect on the past year in movies and give you a list of my 2011 favorites.
Don't worry, you won't be seeing anything too classy like Tree of Life of The Descendants in my list (mostly because I don't care to see them).
10. ) Rubber
Enough with the torture porn! James Wan proves that you don't need to chop people up into kibbles'n bits in order to scare an audience these days.
This movie's sick. Ha-ha. No, but seriously, it's actually pretty good.
I'm a sucker for artsy flicks- especially the good ones.
6.) Our Idiot Brother
As funny as it is heartwarming. No humorous quip here.
Yes it's a dialouge-driven, baseball movie centered around a team that never won the big prize or amounted to anything huge in the history of sports. It's also one of the best movies of the year.
4.) Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
If you're going to put your life on the line and dangle from the world's tallest building for your movie, you'd probably want to be absolutely sure that your movie is going to be one of the best movies of the year.
The odds that this is one of the most enjoyable films of the year is more like 100%.
2.) The Muppets
That's right, a 'Muppets' movie.
The only movie I loved more than The Muppets.
Honorable Mentions: Horrible Bosses, The Beaver, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. II, Source Code
