    • I am wondering mate do you go to any so called blockbusters like the Battleships, Spiderman etc? just wondering because al your films are more the classy movies you know all I have seen in your top ten is "Hugo" and that is deserved, also seen Potter and Super 8 both excellent.

    • Hello, are you sure you are not a professional film reviewer/expert etc?

      Just wondering you know so much about movies and quality movies it seems you are not like a lot of people who lok at how much money it made etc.

      I loved Super 8 it was an awesome and movie with so much excitement and I also love 'Hugo" great choice for the top movie.

    • Yes I agre "Hugo" rocks and I dont mean Hurley from Lost. lol

    • Yes I know I'm normally late with my Top 10 lists of the year but it took me a while to see all the movies and DVDs I had to see. So without further ado:

       

      1) Hugo-Leave it to Martin Scorsese to create a masterpiece of a family movie. Hugo Cabret best symbolizes the child in a filmmaker's heart.
      2) The Descendants-Unlike any other Geroge Clooney film you've ever seen.
      3) Moneyball-Not only is it one of the best baseball movies ever made but one of the smartest too.
      4) The Artist-If silence is golden, then silence was Oscar gold in 2011. This film reminds you of what a lost gem silent movies are.
      5) The Help-The struggle to be free from the maid's point of view. Just as ugly but also as triumphant.
      6) A Separation-You don't have to be Iranian to fully understand this divorce drama.
      7) Midnight In Paris-Woody Allen's best in a long time. Reminds you why Paris is the city of legendary dreamers.
      8) 50/50-Who says comedy and cancer don't mix? They mixed here, and in a great way.
      9) The Tree Of Life-Not exactly the most entertaining movie of the year but of the most thought provking ones.
      10) Of Gods And Men-One of the best and truest depictions of religious conviction ever to grace the big screen.
       
      HONORABLE MENTION:
      -Drive-Not just your typical crime drama but moments of real intimacy too.
      -Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2-It's not just a movie series but an era in pop culture that ends with a bang.
      -Bridesmaids-Just when you thought everything that could go wrong before your wedding does, this movie proved your wedding ain't got nothing on this!
      -The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn-Best animated movie this year. Spielberg brings a European pop culture icon to life in a thrilling way.
      -Super 8-Possibly the best salute to Spielberg's adventures ever made.
       
      OTHER BESTS:
      -Best Morally Redeeming Movie: Of Gods And Men-See above review.
      -Best Animated Film: The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn-While 2011 lacked the magic in its animated movies--even Pixar's Cars 2 was a dud--this was the class of this year's field.
      -Best Foreign-Language Film: A Separation-See above review.
      -Biggest Disappointment: Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides-The POTC formula is so tried-and-tired I now just have to say "Hit the road Jack!"
      -Favorite Movie I'm Ashamed To Admit I Liked: Bridesmaids-What could have been formulaic or yet another ridiculously over-the-top comedy is a gem thanks to Kristen Wiig's co-writing and an ensemble of bridesmaids with their own unique personalities.
      -Best British Film: My Week With Marilyn-What appears to be an interesting story of Marilyn having a fling with a twentysomething British boy is also a unique look at the Marilyn few knew.
      -Best Popcorn Movie: Super 8-Winning story, winning special effects and a winning ensemble of kids make for a winning summer movie.
      -Best Live Action Family Film: Hugo-A family movie from Martin Mean Streats Taxi Driver Raging Bull Goodfellas Cape Fear Departed Scorsese? Yes! And a diamond of one to boot.
       
      So there you go. My list of the best of 2011. Now to get focused on 2012. I've seen some good and some bad. Plus the Oscar fare is coming in months so hang tight!

    • No I don't think so they are out of ideas, all movies now are remakes even when they are not official remakes they use previous ideas and premises. I can watch 10 movies now and they remind me of other films in their ideas, story-line and many other factors.

    •  youre maybe right but movies made out of comics are not original.

      Rubbish, because people are downloading them???? how funny despite  people  downloading movies they are still grossing obscene amounts of money. The Avengers to date has grossed $619,545,000, The Dark Knight Rises $431,196,000 and on and on and on bluray and DVD they will make millions more so please do not tell me that movie makers are doing remakes because people download movies..absolute rubbish.

      the movie industry wont invest anymore in original new movies cause we keep on downloading them. thats my opinion about the remake wave. sometimes an original idea comes along like Cabin in the woods or Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter. but most of the time they take an old script from the archive,call a few known actors,give a little twist on the story and there you have a new old movie that make money again.

    • Hollywood is out of ideas my freind, there will be an endless parade of remakes and movie versions of old TV shows. *YAWN*

    • August 30, 2012 2:24 PM EDT
    • So next up on the remake table is RoboCop, I am sick and tired of remakes and a high percentage of the time the remake is inferior.

       

      The only thing most remakes have to offer in SFX laden films is the new updated technology and that is it. We need some original ideas get some new blood in tinsel town to come up with original ideas and stop this endless parade of remade movies.

    • There is no finer motion picture ever made than Quentin Tarantinos 1994 masterpiece "Pulp Fiction." This is a must see if you are a film buff but be warned of graphic violence and language.

    • August 20, 2012 12:06 AM EDT
    • Best movie I have seen is The Dark Knight. :) that is my fav movie.

    • August 19, 2012 10:00 PM EDT
    • I have two movies that impacted me and made me fell in love with movies and never had the chance to see these on the big screen, they were released before my time.

      I think the best movie ever made was "Jaws" with "Raiders of the Lost Ark" coming at second.

    • August 19, 2012 6:04 PM EDT
    • Yes for me I would say Dark Knight that was awesome.

    • August 18, 2012 8:03 PM EDT
    • There are so many movies that I hold in high regard to pick one would be so tough but let me give it a try. I am going to have to go with "The Dark Knight."

    • August 18, 2012 5:21 PM EDT
    • Since I have not seen as many movies as you buffs and film students and mine will not be that old.lol I choose............Pan's Labyrinth

    • August 18, 2012 2:20 AM EDT
    • That is an awesome movie and one of my favs but my choice is "The Godfather" that is great movie making.
