Top 10 – Best Films of 2011

All of the films on this list may have slightly different reasons for being on it, but I will try to give my reasons as we count down. Mainly they are on the list because I enjoyed them and they left a lasting impression.

This is something that has to be better than the summer which seemed to be just comic book film after comic book film . . . which I do love but it’s nice to have some different types of films out for a bit more variety!
