Welcome to 2012!  I should have posted this earlier, but better late than never.  That’s my motto for sure 🙂
Below is a quick review of the movies that came out in 2011 that I actually saw.  Unfortunately, the list is pretty scarce of movies that are actually worth seeing more than once.

Unknown – Yeah, don’t bother with this movie, you will be disappointed.  Watch Taken instead.

Insidious – This movie is worth watching. It has suspense and many of those jump out of your seat moments.  Had a lot of potential until the end.

Prom – This movie is really girly and cute.  Pretty enjoyable if you are a girly girl.

Rio –  This movie is worth the watch.  It’s cute, well written, and the animation is great.

Thor – This is a well done comic book movie.  And of course it has my boyfriend Thor in it <3

The Hang Over Part II – It was entertaining, but basically a repeat of the same scenarios as the original. 

X-Men: First Class – I highly recommend this movie.  It is a pretty close race between Thor and X-men for the best comic book adaption for me.  Some of the complaints I heard was that it had a cheese factor, but of course it would…it’s a comic book adaptation.  Also, some of the characters were not part of the original Xmen crew.  Well either way the movie was still well done.  You can’t deny that.

Super 8 –  This movie was enjoyable.  It had lots of potential, and the cast of kids were good actors.  Of course it made the mistake that many sci-fi/monster movies do and that is…(nah you have to watch it)

Green Lantern – I rate this movie OK.  My friends loved it, but I didn’t.  To me it was not as well written, directed, or edited as some of the other comic book adaptations that came out.  Marvel has the upper hand in comic book movies.

Bad Teacher – This movie was pretty entertaining.  It was nice to see Cameron Diaz in a comical bad girl role. 

Horrible Bosses – I loved this movie.  I love Charlie Day and the cast behind this movie.  Must watch.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:  Part 2 – This movie ended the Harry Potter series and did not disappoint.  It had minor holes missing from the last movie but it was still well done and enjoyable.

Captain America:  The First Avenger – Another well done movie by Marvel to prequel the Avengers movie coming out.

The Myth of the American Sleepover – This movie was weird and pointless.  It wasn’t necessarily bad just didn’t really do anything for me.

Cowboys and Aliens – Eh…you can skip this one too.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes – Well done movie.  I liked everything about it, except for James Franco’s lisp. o.O yeah I said it.

The Help – One of the best movies of the year.  Very well written and directed. 

Conan the Barbarian – Very violent.  Not terrible if you like that sort of thing.  I think I prefer the original Conan with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Colombiana – Blek

The Debt – Snooze fest. 

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 – 50/50 This movie is only good for Twilight fans.

I hope 2012 brings more original movies to the screen and better quality overall in writing and direction.

  1. I think i saw only a quarter of those lol. Really was a terrible year for movies! Only a few bright spots here and there but everything seemed either not worth the time or just worthy of a netflix rental.
