This movie was overlooked in 2011. It came out earlier in the year, and the symphonic movement of the movie was just breath taking. The movie Hannah makes me want to be nice…
Steven Spielberg really has gone back to his ‘Color me Purple’ and ‘Amistad’ roots on this movie. The stories were unique and brilliantly shot. I must admit that I didn’t want to see this movie. After seeing Warhorse, I regarded not seeing it earlier. It is a historical journey.
This documentary was one I would require anyone who owns a horse to see. This documentary really goes into a deep circle of love and understanding between animal and human. Buck also shows that despite our history, it is our choice what we do with it.
I am so glad this movie is being recognized. It brought the dyeing genre of western to kids. It was a great western tale for both parents and children alike. It really sets home on regardless who you are, it is who you become.
6. The Help
I must admit, this movie brought me to tears. This movie brought the power of courage everyone should and can possess. The help doesn’t hold back, and that is what made the movie so good. It was powerful and movie that is just as powerful as The Color Purple.
This was my surprise movie this year. Warrior is movie about two brothers who haven’t seen each other in years having to face each other again. They grew up in a dysfunctional family and seeing the desperate need of union. This movie is much more than a MMA fight, it is the modern Rocky.
4. Midnight in Paris
This must be my favorite Woody Allen film. I loved his other ones, but this one had a unique charm to it. It was creative, witty, and a great story telling. This movie makes me want to go to Paris and gives use the sci-fi effect of parallel universes.
3. Tree of Life
Even though this wasn’t Malick best film, tree of life is its own masterpiece. This movie was far from traditional, and yet the artistic message of beauty, life, and death brings this movie to new heights.
Martin Scorsese film is the ‘Ode to all films.’ With its vibrant colors, and beautiful story, I could watch this movie again and again. The movie really captures some of the vintage films, and helps us remember the beauty when films began.
This movie is the most underrated movie of the year. It is also my #1 movie of the year. This movie was an old to the old driving movies, and when heroism wasn’t about the law, but doing what’s right. Drive is gritty, and yet had that John Hughes 80’s type of love mix in it.
The Players – A great silent film. It is nice to see a movie that this in theatres
Adventures of Tin Tin – Fun and exciting film Hardy Boy’s type of a film
X-Men First Class – Such good chemistry and beautifully told story50/50 – A very unique film about dealing with tragic news which can’t be control.
