Favorite movies of 2011

I have to admit that my movie watching this year was pretty pathetic. I didn't make it to the movies as much as I would have liked to (hello 2012 goal). But I'm still going to share what I did like.


Probably the funniest movie of the year. I will never eat at a sketchy Brazilian restaurant. I think what's so great about Bridesmaids is that it shows that a woman centric comedy can appeal to men and woman. Woman are funny, woman can be gross, woman can lead a comedy film.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Harry Potter is really done. Sad to see it go but the movie did the books justice. I only wish the deaths in the final battle weren't so glossed over. I wasn't as emotional as I was with the books. I still loved the movie though.

Tower Heist

Welcome back Eddie Murphy. Where the heck have you been? We need a spin off with Matthew Broderick and Eddie Murphy.

"Today I teach you how to pick a lock with a bobby pin! Here's your bobby pin, here's your bobby pin, and here's your punk-ass bobby pin! You unlock the door, or you gonna freeze to death! I'm gonna be inside having sex with Rita!"

I know this list is pretty sad but I didn't realize that until I started writing this post and I put in all this effort so you get this pathetically short list.

Movies I still need to see that came out in 2011:

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Sherlock Holmes
Horrible Bosses


  1. Drive is a giant turd of a movie. Don't waste your time! A complete waste of Ryan Gosling. Trust me, you'll wish you could get those 90 minutes back if you watch it.

  2. Booo I haven't seen any of those. I can't really remember many movies that came out this year, let alone ones I watched.

  3. I totally agree about HP2 and Bridesmaids. But as for Tower Heist, I thought the first half was pretty good, but the second half went downhill fast.

  4. @Morgan - Good to know! I may skip it.

    @Mark - I need to keep track of what movies I saw over the year because my mind is blank before summer.

    @Gia - I added Tower Heist because of the first half. I agree that the second half was not as good.

  5. I am in love with Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids.

    "I met a dolphin down there." lol.

    Also, please see the swedish version of Girl with the Dragon tattoo. It is amazing.

  6. That whole story killed me about falling off the cruise ship ha ha.

    I watched all the Swedish movies. They were really good.

  7. Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was EXCELLENT. I highly recommend it.
