Favorite Movies of 2011

Posted on: January 13, 2012

The movie selections of 2011 started out good. There were movies like Sucker Punch and  Kung Fu Panda 2, to name a few. Those were pretty good. The movies in the summer like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Captain America, awesome! But towards the end of the year the movies started to dwindle. I mean, there were a few good ones like Puss in Boots and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows,  but other than that, nothing! What the hell happen?

Here’s a list of my favorite movies of last year:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2-Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Tom Felton, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Isaacs (7/15/2011) Harry, Ron and Hermione search for the last of Voldemort’s Horcruxes which results in the ultimate final battle between good and evil.

Too awesome for words! Even though they left out a few things from the books I still loved it. Potterhead for life!

2. The MuppetsStarring Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Copper (11/23/2011) The Muppets are back to put on one more show to save the Muppet theater from an evil oil tycoon that wants to tear it down.

Oh my god! I loved the Muppets when I was a kid. I’ve see all the Muppet movies and I was a huge fan of the Muppet Babies back in 1984. You got to love the classics.

3. ThorStarring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston (5/6/2011) A powerful but arrogant warrior cast out from Asgard for being reckless and reignite an ancient war. There he learns what it means to be a true hero.

This movie is particularly special to me. Not only I’m a big fan of Marvel comics but this movie came out of me and my boyfriend’s anniversary (which is May 3rd). We’ve been together for eight years now and every movie that’s ever came that weekend is either related to X-Men, Marvel, action or Hugh Jackman. What are the odds right?

4. X-Men: First ClassStarring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence (6/3/2011)  This is a prequel  that shows us how Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr, two young men discovering their powers, went from being friends to being enemies.

I thought this movie was really good. It’s really something to see them before they were Professor X and Magneto. X-Men is one of my favorite comic book heroes and X2: United was the first movie my boyfriend and I ever saw together.

5. The Hangover 2Starring Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Bradly Cooper, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong (5/26/2011) In the sequel the wolf pack heads to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. A couple of drinks later, they wake up with no memory of what happened. Like before they have to retrace their steps and find their missing friend, while running into a few interesting characters along the way.

I laughed throughout the entire movie. The story line was pretty much the same, but it still worked. It was great seeing them all again, especially Chow. Never a dull moment with these guys.

6. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides-Starring Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane (5/20/2011) Captain Jack Sparrow is off on another adventure, this time to find the Fountain of Youth. But Jack has to deal with zombies, mermaids, an ex-girlfriend, and  Blackbeard, the pirate that all pirates fear.

Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorite trilogy movies of all time. I love Johnny Depp. He is such an amazing actor.

 

7. Paul-Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman (3/18/2011) Two British comic-book geeks on a road trip to see America’s UFO sites, like Roswell, come across a real alien, named Paul, who needs their help to get back home.

I wasn’t sure about this movie but it was surprisingly good. Pegg and Frost wrote the script for the film. They did a really good job.

8. Puss In Boots-Starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton (10/28/2011) Before meeting Shrek and Donkey, Puss was a wanted fugitive, who spent years trying to clear his name. When he tries to steal the magic beans from the infamous criminals Jack and Jill, he meets master thief Kitty Softpaws and old childhood friend, Humpty Dumpty. Together, they plan to steal the magic beans, that will lead them to the Giant’s Castle and the Golden Goose.

I loved Puss in the Shrek movies. And it was interesting seeing Puss’s back story. Where he came from and how he got those boots.

9.  Captain America: The First AvengerStarring Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper,  (7/29/2011) During World War II, after being rejected several times by the military, because of his various health and physical issues, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into a super soldier.

Man, Steve went from a little shrimp to this big muscle guy. Wow! It was awesome seeing Captain America going up against the Red Skull. I can’t wait for the Avengers to come out this summer.

10.  BeastlyStarring Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Hudgens, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris (3/4/2011) Modern day Beauty and the Beast. Handsome but very vain guy gets bitch slap by karma when he insults a witch, who places a curse on him and turning him to a hideously deform creature. He has a year to find someone to love him for him or stay that way forever.

A lot of people didn’t like this movie, too teen drama with a little fantasy but I really enjoyed it! I loved the message behind it. It shows that it’s not a person’s looks that makes them beautiful.

The movies coming out this year look really good. There’s American Reunion, The Raven, The Hunger Games etc. I hope I get to see them all.

Oh wow! Thank you so much. I feel honored.

I was finally able to see the last Harry Potter, and I am glad it made your list. I am not a die-hard fan, but I very much enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing

X-Men first class was amazing. I never thought I would like anything without the original cast in it, but they did a great job. As far as Hangover 2, after seeing the first one even I had to say; That’s just gay (and cheap) :D:P

I love the X-Men. They are some of my favorite comic book heroes ever. The first two X-Men movies were great. X-Men: The Last Stand could have been better, same with X-Men: Origins. But First Class so made up for everything.
