Last week I posted my top new music from 2011. Today, we’re talking about some of the best movies that came out this year.
My only midnight release of the year. Been a long time coming, and I can’t say I was disappointed. Could the battle scenes have been longer? Probably. But was it a great ending to an incredible ride? Definitely. Also, was fun to make fun of those people who dressed up for the occasion.
The Muppets Movie
I’ve always loved the Muppets. When I was a little kid, I would watch them every chance I got. Add some of my favorite actors in cameo spots, and you’ve got a great movie. Worst feature was there were no “Pigs in Space.” Best feature was seeing the Muppets again.
A humorous drama about cancer? Yes, I didn’t believe it until I saw it. One of the few movies that can make you laugh one minute, and cry the next. Powerful drama with some hilarious lines and great actors.
I couldn’t be a self-respecting geek without one superhero movie on the list. Thor was simply better than all the others. It wasn’t earth shattering good, but it was among the best for 2011.
There are still plenty of others I didn’t see this year, that I really need to catch sometime soon. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the next movie I want to see, but it doesn’t come out for another week or so.
What were your favorite movies you saw this year? If your answer includes Twilight it would probably be best if you didn’t respond, due to the massive amounts of mockery you will receive.
