2011 has been a largely unspectacular year for movies.  There have been a lot of fine movies but everything seemed to hover around the very good or mostly just good range.  I didn’t see everything I meant to or ultimately will but I feel the eleven movies pictured above represent the best of the year I can put together with what I have to work with.  Everything else is listed below.  What I didn’t catch yet but meant to is at the bottom.

Very good, fun to be had, almost something special: MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, TREE OF LIFE, POINT BLANK, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, WAR HORSE, SOURCE CODE. FRIGHT NIGHT, M:I – GHOST PROTOCOL, CEDAR RAPIDS, DRIVE ANGRY, TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL, HANNA, RANGO, INSIDE JOB, CONAN O’BRIEN CAN’T STOP, MARGIN CALL, THE COMPANY MEN, BRIDESMAIDS, EVERYTHING MUST GO

Not bad, okay, good but didn’t go for it: IDES OF MARCH, TIN TIN, THE ARTIST, DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, CONTAGION, THE MUPPET, ATTACK THE BLOCK, THE LINCOLN LAWYER, KUNG FU PANDA 2, CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, WIN WIN

Missed the mark by too much: THE LAST CIRCUS, MONEYBALL, SUPER 8, HUGO, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON, THE MECHANIC, HORRIBLE BOSSES, CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE, THE CONSPIRATOR, SUPER, MEEKS CUTOFF, PAUL

Stunk up the joint: SCREAM 4, RED STATE, GREEN LANTERN, THE THING, BATTLE: L.A., YOUR HIGHNESS, SUCKER PUNCH, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN

Couldn’t finish the damn thing: MELANCHOLIA

Meant to see and may yet eventually: A DANGEROUS METHOD, YOUNG ADULT, COWBOYS & ALIENS, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, J. EDGAR, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, THE HELP, A SEPARATION, ANONYMOUS
