Best movies of 2011

Filed under: For your pleasure — BJ @ 9:59 am

I’ve only seen 35 films released in 2011, and thus, I’ve decided to cut my favorite movies of the year down to 10. I know I haven’t seen almost all of the Best Picture nominees yet–among others–but I have to draw the line somewhere. Post up if you have a top movie not on my list, and I’ll consider adding it in my queue if it isn’t there.

  1. Midnight in Paris (Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay)
  2. Limitless (Best Thriller)
  3. Moneyball (Best Writing – Adapted Screenplay, Best Drama)
  4. The Adjustment Bureau (Best Action, Best Sci-Fi)
  5. Insidious (Best Horror)
  6. Bridesmaids (Best Comedy)
  7. The Change-Up (Best Sleeper)
  8. Martha Marcy May Marlene (Best Independent)
  9. Drive (Best Score)
  10. Crazy, Stupid, Love.




  1. […] Winner of 5 of 10 Oscars–including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Score–it was on numerous top 10 lists for critics, including No. 2 for Richard Roeper and Peter Travers and No. 10 for Roger Ebert. I have it as No. 2 for the year. […]

  2. Yeah, the way Midnight in Paris made me feel is the reason why I love movies. Hahah, and so with you on Ernest Hemingway, although if you’re looking for a flowery speaker, Russell Brand is one of the finest – with pizzaz. I personally admire the monotone narrative.

  3. This was a down year for movies, but if I had to choose one I enjoyed the most, I’d go with Midnight in Paris. Woody Allen can write. The dialogue was smart and funny and still felt natural, and I want to speak how Ernest Hemingway speaks in the movie. And the theme of nostalgia stemming from dissatisfaction of the present really hits home.

    On pure enjoyment, which is my criteria, and not necessarily craft, Crazy Stupid Love would be second.
