  1. In Time wasn't that bad, nice top 15 list, but you need to see A Separation. The Artist is also my number one, it really is a wonderful film.

    1. Thank you for the comment Myrela! Yeah A Seperation is opening in my area this weekend, so I'll try to check it out. :)

  2. The Artist was fantastic, but when you can, you must must must must MUST see Drive. Good lists. :)

  3. hey mk, thanx for the wrap-up, i have to disagree a bit , larry crowne while corny/predictible,wasnt THAT bad, although i watched it on a plane , was so bored i would have been happy with anything...most of the other flix on ur lists i pretty much agree with ur placements ,,, and as it made # 1 i will def try to catch the artist on netflix soon ( is it on there ? )have fun ,,,go giants!

  4. Some great selections on both ends there, Zach. Have you seen Drive, Tintin or Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? I ask because these are my top 3 of 2011, and I don't see them anywhere.

  5. Great lists...Warrior at #2 was a bit of a surprise but I liked your choices. Your reviews are fantastic...keep up the great work!

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
