In 2011 I saw nearly 250 USA released films, not counting the Independent offers viewed at film festivals or sent to my home for comment. Unfortunately this was no year to brag about due to an over abundance of sequels, enough superhero’s to save two planets, worn out story-lines, not enough good drama, a lot of raunchy romance with more skin and sex than in an art house, very few box-office blowouts, a small number of good acting newcomers, and some bad performances by our legends.
The following is my selections for the best of 2011 each selected for their uniqueness and strong presentation that provides enjoyable entertainment.
DRIVE- Excellent all around and a plus factor to the acting.
I’m sure if you are an avid moviegoer you can come up with your own list, so don’t hesitate to comment on my choices and send me yours. Don’t be a wuss if you have ten better I want to know.
It gets very hard choosing only ten films from the many, so I here’s my 10 favorites by genre; Drama, Action, Adventure, Comedy and Science Fiction.
