2011 in film



Well its december and with the year coming to an end i thought i would look back at what movies have been the highlight of the year......and the worst. I know the year isn't over just yet but with nothing coming up this month thats interests me at all i dont see my picks changing. From comedy's to summer blockbusters, horrors to romance lets look back at the year of 2011.


Movie Of The Year.

Warrior


Warrior is my pick for movie of the year, Okay ime a big fan of mma and a big fan of Tom Hardy so i knew i would enjoy this movie..... But wow. Warrior is a really powerful movie with a solid story, Great acting and a very strong cast. The movie is based on MMA but you really don't have to be a fan because the movie is so much more than that. A torn up family is the setting to the movie and cage fighting plays a part in a emotional ride.

................................................................................


Horror of The Year

Insideous


Okay well my pick is Insideous. I know i slated this movie on the forums back when this was released and i still hold to my word that the first half of the movie is great, very scary, exciting, but then bang.... second half comes along. The movie for me was wierd it felt like it lost its way abit, but its still the scariest thing thats come are way this year.

...............................................................................


Big Dissapointment of the year.

Hangover Part 2




Surprise Of The Year

Rise Of The Apes



Dumb Fun

Fast And Furios 5


.......................................................................................


Movie Soundtrack

Well ime picking a soundtrack from warrior for how well it fitted into the movie.


..................................................................................

Comic Book Movie.

Thor


Well this was a very easy choice for my comic book movie... Thor. Thor was a great example to how good a comic movie can be made.... take note captain America, great action, decent story and funny one liners is what we all love about these movie and Thor delivered. Chris Hemsworth delivers a great performance as our man with the hammer and is a reason to see The Avengers next year.

To be Continued

Haven't seen Warrior and don't intend to, doesn't interest me in the slightest.

Best of the year so far for me is probably Drive or We Need to Talk About Kevin, neither of which blew me away by any stretch of the imagination so I have a feeling the best will come pretty late. 50/50 looks promising, which I'll be seeing soon, and The Artist comes out here on the 30th, so that may well sneak in.

Thats the problem with Warrior everyones got that attitude but i would recommend it to everyone, my girlfirend was crying and loved it, my friends who are not fans of cage fighting at all loved it, you should really check it out.

There's an underlying homoerotic vibe in the first three pics.....
Actually, there's four, doesn't Woody play a gay character in that film?



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
But as that other Woody [Allen] says, he has "the type of body which excites both persuasions".
