Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

I thought we could have one thread where we list our top 10 movies of the year and discuss them. As we see new movies, we can go back and edit our posts. I think it might be interesting as opposed to just doing like summer lists or winter lists.

Here's mine:

Top 10

1. Drive
2. The Artist
3. Another Earth
4. Melancholia
5. Young Adult
6. Take Shelter
7. Midnight in Paris
8. Certified Copy
9. 50/50
10. Contagion




There's still a whole lot of great movies coming out that will likely make my list. What are yours?

Re: Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

From what I've seen so far, these are the only I would consider to be "great" films:

Drive
The Tree of Life
50/50
Attack the Block
Hanna
Midnight in Paris

There's been a lot of fun films, but this year has mostly consisted of shit.

I don't get out as much anymore, but I loved me some Fast Five and Final Destination 5. The Muppets will probably be my favorite though.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

It's been a weak year that's for sure. I"m not sure I could make a top 5 right now.

Hanna sucked IMO, and I really wanted to like that one. Tree of Life was pretty profound but I'm not sure I love it yet. I missed Drive, 50/50 and Contagion so those are three possibilities. HP7P2 is kind of a gimme. Apes was good.

X-men was just OK.

Horrible movie year, but my favorite new release is probably Midnight In Paris. I haven't seen Tree Of Life yet though.

I was mulling over the December releases, and also concluded that this is one of the more weak years in cinema in almost a decade. It's doubtful the Oscar-winning performances will be seen by a lot of movie-goers this year, it's that weak.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

I don't think I've seen enough movies yet for a top 10, but here's my top 5:

1.) Moneyball
2.) Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2
3.) Rise of the Planet of the Apes
4.) Super 8
5.) X-Men: First Class

Honorable mentions: Crazy, Stupid, Love.; Thor; and Captain America

I'm assuming after today, The Muppets might make it somewhere into this list.

The more years go by, the more I realize that 1999 and 2007 were absolute flukes in terms of quality movie years.

I mean, there have been some "genre" films I've really enjoyed (Captain America, X-Men: FC, Harry Potter) but I'm not as bugfuck about them the same way I was over Scott Pilgrim, Toy Story 3, or How To Train Your Dragon.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon in IMAX 3-D.

Bridesmaids

And that's it for now.

Some things I want to see are in theaters now or due soon. They're too many out all at once: HUGO, J. EDGAR, THE DESCENDANTS, A DANGEROUS METHOD and a couple others.

It's a shame seeing all these lists without a Pixar film on them.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

This thread made me realize how few movies I watched this past year. Of the handful I did see, Fast Five was definitely the most entertaining. Also enjoyed Rango.

I agree that it's been a weak year but like most years the best movies have yet to come out.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2011 (so far)

I haven't been to the theater much this year - not because there wasn't anything of interest, but simply because I've decided I almost always prefer watching movies at home.

So I have a list of about a dozen movies that have already come to and left the theaters, and that I plan to see eventually, and another dozen or so (Melancholia, Carnage, Kid with a Bike, etc.) coming out in the next two months that I hope to see.

With that said, here's my list so far:

Another Earth
Certified Copy
Midnight in Paris
The Tree of Life
Moneyball
Uncle Boonmee
Hanna
Le Havre
Meek's Cutoff

In no particular order:

Super 8
Contagion
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Cars 2
X-Men: First Class
Drive
Captain America
Bridesmaids
50/50
The Ides of March

I'll definitely have to revise this list later. There are still plenty of films for me to see (including Hugo and The Muppets later this week). I'd imagine the list won't be entirely the same by the year's end.
