My Top Ten Favorite Movies of 2011

Confession. This year I haven't seen a lot of movies. In fact there are quite a few that came out this year that I have been dying to see, but haven't seen. I blame Netflix. I just never go to the movies anymore. Expensive and crowded.

Haven't seen

1. Crazy Stupid Love (REALLY NEED TO SEE THIS!)
2. Sherlock Holmes Dos
3. MI4 (Heard it's killer.)
4. Moneyball
5. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Read the book, really want to see the movie.)

Because I haven't seen all I want to, I am only going to list my top 5 of the year until I see the others.

So I am ranking them this year as..

1. The Help
The acting, the story, the casting. Awemazing. Loved the book, but I might have loved the movie more. Great movie.
2. Bridesmaids
Crass? Yes. Inappropriate? Yes. Funny as heck? YES. Melissa McCarthy could be one of my favorite actresses.
3. Super 8
Loved feeling like a kid again. I rarely don't like J.J. Abrams though.
4. Water for Elephants.
The scenery and how it was filmed alone. Gorgeous.
5. Limitless and Horrible Bosses tie.
Both really entertaining.

Now if we are listing the worst films of 2011, sadly I have seen quite a few of them. Ranking very high on the list include..

Red Riding Hood and Sucker Punch. Not sure why I saw those. And let's be honest. Source Code was laughable.
