As it turned out, most of my rating system came crashing down when I discovered that I like to give the grade 4 a lot – too much to be honest. So I am already thinking something new and better for next year. But I did get the top 3 with no difficulties and the rest of the list came down to how memorable the movie was. So here it is, top 7 of 2011 – my favorite movies!
Although I had mixed feelings about the ending of the movie, I still remember the amazing cinematography (by Manuel Alberto Claro) and the greatness of the first part of the movie. Besides, even though I did not enjoy the ending, it is definitely memorable and an image that I can not delete from my mind.
#6 What’s Your Number?
This place shocks me as much as it might shock you. The movie is not that great, it is not the best of the best this year but it sure is best among Chris Evans’ performances – for me at least. Although, the movie is memorable as well, I mean the basketball scene is not a typical romantic comedy highlight but I think that this is the reason why I keep having those .. never mind.
This Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie was definitely one of my favorite experiences this year and a well deserved place belongs to this dramatic comedy. I think the movie just gets to you although it is so simple and down to Earth in a way. Gonna watch it again for sure.
#4 Never Let Me Go
This, in some what, alter-world plot is definitely memorable. But this novel-based installment was made perfect with a young cast including this year’s big hit Andrew Garfield. The movie was sad and to be honest, it is the saddest among this list – but sometimes it is good to cry on a Friday night when you don’t feel like going out.
#3 Horrible Bosses
Now comes the surprising part – I have two comedies in my top 3 and the first one is no other than star-filled Horrible Bosses. I have a feeling that it is one of my favorites this year due to the interesting cast choices but probably the most because Charlie Day is brilliant in every scene he is in!
# 2 Crazy Stupid Love
This is no surprise that Ryan Gosling together with Emma Stone and Steve Carell made me so happy when I watched this movie that I still smile secretly when I recall the best moments. Funny, gets to you emotionally and is just a great entertainment for friends and family. Going to my “watch the second time” list right now!
#1 The King’s Speech
Taking the highest price is the first Oscar moment for Colin Firth and the inspiring tale of the king who found a friend in the oddest place. I have no doubt in my mind that this will remain in my list of favorites, it will sure have some competition for the first place (I hope so) but nobody can’t push Firth out of my top 10. He is and will be my favorite of 2011 – just because!
So, this is it, this was 2011 and there is nothing else to say but:
Enjoy the last moments of this year as enthusiastically as you can and enjoy the next one even more that this one! See you next year!
