Top 15 Movies of 2011

Leave a comment

This list was actually pretty easy because I didn’t get out and see a lot of movies this year. That is already in the process of being corrected for next year. So if something is missing you think should be here, either it sucked and you have awful taste, or I didn’t see it yet.

 

  1. The Muppets
  2. Conan the Barbarian
  3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  4. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
  5. Moneyball
  6. Attack The Block
  7. Cowboys & Aliens
  8. Super 8
  9. Drive
  10. Captain America: The First Avenger
  11. Margin Call
  12. Horrible Bosses
  13. Hanna
  14. The Woman
  15. Green Hornet


And the worst movie of the year:
No Strings Attached

Top 25 Albums of 2011

Leave a comment

Albums this year was pretty tough, there are some good ones that were left off. Speaking of ones left off there are some releases that were not included. Some of the reasons were if they were compilations, covers and live material. While there has been some great stuff this year put out that matches this I don’t think it’d be fair. There are even one or two things I left off of here because it was mostly compilation, or previously released material. So if you think I missed something, think about that first…then violently disagree with me.

Top Movies and Music of the first half of 2011

4 Comments

Well June is here, and you know what that means? It’s time for the first half of the year lists. It’s been a fucking great year for music so far in 2011. The top music list I already hate myself for having to knock so many great releases so far down the list but it’s just been stellar release after stellar release. On the movie side of things though it’s been a pretty slow year, so instead of the standard top five for the half I’m only going to do a top three. So let’s go ahead and get this underway!

Top 3 movies – First half of 2011

1. Green Hornet
2. Hangover 2
3. Thor

And the worst movie of the year so far is…

No Strings Attached

Now on to the music, normally I split these into a few posts but because it was a short movie list I’m just cramming everything here. If you didn’t make the list, fear not, there’s still half a year for things to get moved and you’re probably on the list somewhere anyway (if it’s good). I’m also splitting things up a little different this year so there’s actually more lists, you’ll see.

1. Motorhead: The World Is Yours
2. Deep Sleep: Turn Me Off
3. Sundials: Never Settle

6. Power Quest: Blood Alliance

And I’ll just throw this in for now since there hasn’t been too many demo’s I’ve come across this year (less than 5!!), I hope the second half picks up on this front.
