With every top 10 list comes a bottom 10. I’ve seen some really awful movies this year but thankfully not many of them have been released in 2011, which made the task of finding 10 movies quite difficult for me. Most were decent, far from awful, but these few were truly terrible.
A few on the list are present because of expectation more than anything else, some directors should know better.
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.
Although there are tons of movies that still haven’t made it to British screens, plus the possible list breakers that I have yet to see – Hugo, Snowtown, The Skin I Live In, Midnight In Paris, The Tree of Life, Melancholia and Take Shelter, to name but a few.
The following movies are the ones that have made the biggest impression on me throughout the year.
As we go to press, I have currently seen 124 new movies this year.
