2011 was a great year for movies! As good a year as I can remember. Of course, you would not know that from the Oscar nominations. It was a big year for death, revenge and mental illness. Sign me up!
I spent most of the year only seeing the movies that people wouldn’t shut up about. And then those movies turned out to be Super 8 and Drive. I’ve spent the past couple months furiously catching up, with a little help from sneaking around and whatever the exact opposite of SOPA is. Thus, I’m only now confident that I have seen all the movies I need to in order to make a proper top 10. Except there’s still lots that I need to see, especially documentaries and foreign films. But who among us can’t say they should see more documentaries and foreign films? Please note that my rankings are practically a formality. I will be giving numbers 9-1 five stars on Netflix (sorry, Pedro).
I’m putting the list behind a break so as not to infuriate people.
