Movies of 2011

Not as many as last year ... but eh, it's not a big deal. Pretty good count overall, I'd say.

In Theaters (in the order of viewing)
  1. Paul
  2. Taxi Driver (re-release)
  3. Source Code
  4. Thor
  5. X-Men: First Class (excellent ensemble superhero team/origin flick)
  6. Super 8
  7. Midnight In Paris (light-hearted, yet serious and very well-done)
  8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (excellent cinematography, but that also goes for Part 1, too)
  9. Captain America (probably the best of the superhero films this year)
  10. Cowboys and Aliens
  11. Drive (one of the best films of the year)
  12. 50/50
  13. The Muppets
  14. Crazy Stupid Love (theater grand re-opening; New Year's Eve (ha-ha, coincidence?) wasn't working, so we got a vote and the majority went for Crazy Stupid Love)
  15. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (stellar action flick)
  16. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
  17. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) (intense, but very well done and up there on the Best Of The Year list)

I really loved Super 8 and Children of Men. Both great movies.
