Another year has past, with more great films to remember and abysmal films to forget. In general it was a pretty light year. Films were mostly about superheroes, blockbusters, Harry Potter and Twilight fever than films that capture movie magic or push the boundaries of cinema. Those special films that we all rave about, I'm sad to say weren't that many. Not that they weren't exceptions.
The best film by far of 2011 at least for me, is "Drive". Everything about it made me fall in love with it. The direction, acting, music, you name it did it all well. From the rest of the bunch, everything came along the the lines of good or close to great. The other real standouts are "We Need to Talk About Kevin", "The Artist" and "Bridesmaids". Nevertheless seeing only these films would be a major injustice to other great films of 2011. At least the most sensible thing, is not to ever bother seeing some of the worst films of 2011. As you will start to second guess your own sanity with the uncharacteristically bad film-making and production choices to have been made in 2011.

P.S. As always this a ever-evolving list. I haven't seen all the films of 2011 and there are many more I still wish to see. So even if some are not on the list, that dosen't mean they wont be later or that they don't deserve to be.
