‘Scott’s Best & Worst Films of 2011’

Yeah, I’m jumping on the bandwagon, I know I know. Gotta be done though. 2011 was an absolute beast for film – one of the best years of recent memory in my opinion. So I deemed it appropriate that I pay homage to (what I believe) are the best, and give a swift middle finger to the worst.

Happy New Year everyone

Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first… ‘The Worst of 2011’

10. ‘Mars Needs Moms’ (Simon Wells)

09. ‘Green Lantern’ (dir. Martin Campbell)

08. ”Transformers: Dark Of The Moon’ (dir. Michael Bay)

07. ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ (dir. Rob Marshall)

06. ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ (dir. Jonathan Liebesman)

05. ‘Fast Five’ (dir. Justin Lin)

04. ‘The Zookeeper’ (dir. Frank Coraci)

03. ‘Conan The Barbarian’ (dir. Marcus Nispel)

02. ‘Sucker Punch’ (dir. Zack Snyder)

01. ‘Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 1’ (dir. Bill Condon)

My ‘Best of 2011’ list goes in order of least favoured, to the most highly favoured

10. ‘Contagion’ (dir. Steven Soderbergh)

09. ‘Super’ (dir. James Gunn)

08. ‘X-Men: First Class’ (dir. Matthew Vaughn)

07. ‘Super 8’ (dir. JJ Abrams)

06. ‘Source Code’ (dir. Duncan Jones)

05. ‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ (dir. Rupert Wyatt)

04. ‘The Skin I Live In’ (dir. Pedro Almodovar)

03. ‘Midnight In Paris’ (dir. Woody Allen)

02. ‘The Artist’ (dir. Michel Hazanavicius)

01. ‘Drive’ (dir. Nicolas Winding Refn)

Of course, it was going to be ‘Drive’. The most inch-perfect film of 2011. Many of my Twitter followers will know that I’ve gushed over this film since release – So it will hardly come as a suprise that it is my choice for film of the year. Amazing in every sense of the word.
