My 10 Favorite Movies of 2011 (So Far)

Since I don't, as my Dad says, get out to the show very often anymore (4 times in 2011 versus no times in 2010), here's where I rank my 10 favorite 2011 films that I actually watched in 2011:

1. Drive
2. Another Earth
3. The Muppets
4. Tomboy
5. Straw Dogs
6. Captain America: The First Avenger
7. Thor
8. Melancholia
9. Winnie the Pooh
10. Super 8

Not a great, prestigious list, but what list of mine really is, right? Anyhow, just for no real reason, following up the list I did at the end of 2010, now that I've seen nearly every movie I wanted to see in 2010 (and more besides), here are my Top 25 Films of 2010.

1. The Illusionist
2. The King's Speech
3. Black Swan
4. How to Train Your Dragon
5. Welcome to the Rileys
6. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
7. Let Me In
8. The American
9. True Grit
10. Death at a Funeral
11. The Ghost Writer
12. The Social Network
13. Somewhere
14. Easy A
15. The Kids Are All Right
16. Waiting for Superman
17. Piranha 3D
18. Shutter Island
19. The Town
20. Despicable Me
21. Waking Sleeping Beauty
22. Trust
23. Blue Valentine
24. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
25. 127 Hours

Tomorrow, I'll have up my Pop Culture Artifacts list.

Yours must be the ONLY 2011 Top Ten List to include Thor, although it made a number of Bottom 10 Lists.

Love the idea of a look back at 2010 now that all of them are available. Nice list and thanks for ideas of a couple I missed.

Tallulah: I hope you said that in the Ted Baxter voice I imagined while reading it.

Csmith: Thanks!
