Film of the year 2011

Last year I complained about the quality of the films released. This year I had no such issue and the films I saw were all largely superb. I got away with seeing just one 3d movie this year but although it was largely redundant it actually worked well in tintin and the experience was not poorer for it. I guess that is testament to what Spielberg can do. Below are the Canterbury Littles’ top 10s for 2011.

Beth:
10. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
9. Senna
8. Source Code
7. Cars 2
6. Harry Potter
5. Horrible Bosses
4. Attack the Block
3. Sherlock Holmes
2. Bridesmaids
1. King’s Speech

Jonathan:

10. source code
9. horrible bosses
8. attack the block
7. Sherlock holmes
6. tinker tailor soldier spy
5. King’s Speech
4. Senna
3. bridesmaids
2. tintin

And at number 1:

1. Mission impossible: Ghost Protocol
It may be big and noisy as well as everything a film graduate should hate but I don’t care about any of that. I want to watch a film and have fun and Mission Impossible 4 was the film I had the most fun watching.

That logic is also what sees Tintin at number 2 and Bridesmaids at three. From there we have three of the films that have/should have critical acclaim, Senna was a good portrayal of a great racer while Kings Speech has already cleaned up an awards season.

Bring on 2012 with Batman and Bilbo!

  • Need to see MI4…. now while normally I would expect to have an issue with something like bridesmaids…. what the hell is source code doing in that list? It was terrible…

  • I disagree, I enjoyed source code except for its final 2 minutes which nearly ruined it. It reminded me of a TV show I used to watch called seven days:

  • YOUR WIFE

    How come YOUR number one gets a picture and MINE doesn’t?
    Also, Source Code was good except that it should have ended when they kiss; the last few minutes were surplus to requirements.
    Also, will you hurry up and play a word already? I am sitting here waaaiiittttiiiinnnnggg…..
