2011 Movies

I've seen a couple of these types of videos, but here is the one I'm going to roll with for today.  I looked over the Wikipedia List of 2011 films and was surprised by how many I had watched.  A years is a really long time apparently so.  The video has samples of all the movies and this Tumblr link has the list of them as they appear in the movie and the music they used.



What did I watch this year?

The Green Hornet and Rango, from totally legit sources ;) are the two movies I couldn't bring myself to finish opening 15 or so minutes of each.

In the theater I watched The Lincoln Lawer, Xmen: First class, Captain America, Money Ball, and the Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

At home I watched The Kings speech.

Movies I'm embarrassed I watched all the way through but sure as hell didn't pay to watch: Thor.

Movies I hope to watch sometime maybe when they show up on Netflix otherwise Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum I tell you.

The Mechanic, Adjustment Bureau, Sucker Punch, Paul, Water for Elephants, Drive, The Rum Diary, Harold and Kumar, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Melancholia, and Warrior.  I also want to watch Sleeping Beauty (totally for the art reasons not because I want to see Strawberry Fields naked I swear).

How about you?  Anything I missed that I really should have given consideration?

  2. Drive is surprisingly Indie, and not the car-chase fast movie I was expecting. You'll probably dig it, although it is a bit slow and brooding so pick a good day.

    I think that the Muppet Movie was ok, the cameos made it worthwhile for me (Dave Grohl as Animal in a muppet cover band). I'm a geek for muppets though, you know that.

  8. Man, this reminded me that I watched a lot of movies, too. I really liked Limitless, but maybe that's because I'm a writer. Either way it's a great movie. Also, I know you mentioned as wanting to see it, but I have to say that Drive is a great movie. The previews made it look like an action movie - it's not - and so a lot of the people in the theatre were restless as the first half of the movie set up. After that, the buildup is definitely worth it, though.

  11. Bridesmaids was terrible - awful. Only one actress saved the film from my husband actually poking his eyes out. I heard it was good, watched it and then automatically found people who said it was awesome suspect.

    According to the husband, it was one of the worst movies he has ever seen.
