My 2011 Films

As I've said many times before, top ten lists make absolutely no sense to me. It's like comparing apples and oranges and grapes and bananas and chicken salad sandwiches and bags of rock salt...I prefer to categorize things in terms of how they've impacted me rather than some kind of presumed objective criteria.

All lists are in no particular order, unless otherwise indicated.

Note: These are ALL of the 2011 films I've seen this year.

Best of the Best:
The Way Back
Cold Weather
Win Win (has anyone seen this? It was really fantastic.)
Meek's Cutoff
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Tree of Life
Tabloid (I want to write about this)

Almost Made It:
Black Death
Source Code
Everything Must Go
Midnight in Paris
Troll Hunter (Brandon, I wanna know what you think of this--watch it)

War Horse

On the Fence:
Horrible Bosses

One Night Stands (I Had a Good Time, but Don't Call):
Red Riding Hood
POTC: On Stranger Tides
