The 2011 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

Previous Years: 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002

Here you go... Rate your favorite movies from this year by whatever method or system you desire. If you keep up your rankings through the year, I'll catalog your picks and tally up the top movies January 2012.

Please don't put a "placeholder" post if you don't actually plan on keeping up your list. Your placeholder posts will disappear / be deleted. Don't believe me? Ask fellow member Joseph Molotov: "Damn you guys for deleting me off the front page last year for not updating my list enough!"

If you'd like to use the 5-star system (like DVD Talk) to rate your movies, you can use these smilies:

:0star: for
:1star: for
:2star: for
etc.

If you'd like to use my automatic list, quote this message to see the code.

Remember: Only keep one post, and edit it to update it. Please don't clutter the thread with multiple posts. Enjoy!

Re: The 2011 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

I'm in. F'real this year! I swear it!

2011 Theatrical Viewings (regardless of actual release date)

Jan 18:
13. True Grit (2010) ***1/2
Feb 06:
18. Somewhere (2010): Not a BAD film. Worth seeing, but not worth seeing again. ***
19. 127 Hours (2010): Very tense film. Loved most of it, especially when the title finally gets displayed. Not as gruesome as I expected, though still effective. ****
20. The Room (2003): There's something very special about this disastrous film. Seeing it with an audience was a blast. Highly recommended. *

  25. 03/25 Brief Encounter - may upgrade to "Impressive" as I thought the ending was particularly strong
  26. 03/26 Just Cause - clever enough, but still predictable
  27. 03/26 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  28. 03/27 Zardoz - was screened at a local theater; couldn't attend so I streamed it
