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

REVIEW: Cowboys & Aliens

Director of both Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Jon Favreau has a crack at the movie adaptation of the 2006 graphic novel of the same name. It’s one of those movies that all I needed to do was hear the title and I was on board. The first thing you’ll notice about this one is the amazing cast. We’ve got the legendary Harrison Ford along with former Bond man Daniel Craig, it’s a great team for this movie but it doesn’t stop there. You’ll also probably take notice of Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown and Paul Dano, all of them have small parts but all are a perfect fit. You’ve also got a great job done by Olivia Wilde and if you watch the great show Justified you’ll probably catch the man that plays Boyd Crowder, Walton Goggins. This is the best movie I’ve seen this year so far, and I think what really made this one work is it isn’t overly cheesy or campy. What we have is a straight up western movie, and I love westerns, however instead of Indians or an outlaw that is causing the trouble it just happens to be aliens. The affects in this movie are really good, which helps keep away from the campiness. If you like Westerns, Sci-Fi movies, or just fun you have to see this movie, I really can’t stress it enough. It’s a great western where they fight aliens, it is Cowboys & Aliens.
