My Top 25 Favourite Older Movies Seen in 2011

This list is compiled of my favourite older movies seen for the first time in 2011.

In addition to the many new releases that I have caught this year, I have also seen well over 200 older movies for the first time. Some completely blew me away, others bored my eyes to the point of sleep. Thankfully these handpicked titles are the better ones.
I found it far too difficult to cut the list down to just 10, hopefully you can forgive me.

    FREEBIE AND THE BEAN was a January screening too, amazing how much a great movie stays with you. I have you and Micah to thank for the POOR PRETTY EDDIE recommendation.
