Best Movies of 2011


The Top TenXW

1Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

This movie WAS supremely fantastic and, as a potter fan, was extremely fulfilling. But it's a shame that people in America think that Transformers was the second best movie of the year?!? Clearly America hasn't seen the likes of the descendants, the girl with the dragon tattoo, Young Adult, Melancholia, or Martha Marcy May Marlene. Because 5 of the films on this list suck, and 4 were good but don't deserve to be on the top 10. It's just a shame.

This movie honestly made my day, and probably kicked the asses of some other movies while at it! Not all of them though, just a few

This was worth reading all the books and wathing all the movies in a 6-month period. The most epic film since Return of the King, A perfect ending to a decade-long franchise.

This was the movie of 2011! There were few other films that came close to the hype of the last Harry Potter film that year! - SidneyHando

2X-Men: First Class

I mean seriously, how can the transformers crap be second. Harry potter 1st and then this movie should be second. Great acting, great dialogues, great visual effects, and one of the best climax scenes of all time. This movie is so good. Transformers 3 was plain crap. Nothing but crap, crap, crap. Go check out the reviews if you want

Hands down. Even though I like Harry Potter and read all the books, I never saw the part 2 deathly hallows. I still haven't. But it could not have topped this movie. But the Harry Potter movies are still good.

How the X-Men trilogy should have began - far superior than the previous films. - wrl6199

3Transformers: Dark of the Moon

God, the people got a one logical reason to hate transformers 2, but this? Is amazing, is great, is a very good movie, don't deserve to been so hated like the people say and don't deserve to been "the worst saga in earth" (that position is from twilight) the story is catchy, the characters are interesting (including sam's girlfriend) and the nostalgia critic transform in a hater of Michael Bay, Mike fixed all the problems than the people seen in transformers 2, give a chance for that

Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action taking on the evil Decepticons, who are eager to avenge their recent defeat. The Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the United States and Russia, to reach a hidden Cybertronian spacecraft on the moon and learn its secrets, and once again Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. The new villain Shockwave is on the scene while the Autobots and Decepticons continue to battle it out on Earth. - suzayn182

Transformers 3 was awesome, There must be an Transformers 4, I loved the last scene Because of Optimus prime's Awesome Dialouge which is "You did not betray me, you betrayed yourself"

Higher! One of my favorite movies

4Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother. - suzayn182

Such an underrated movie! Every single person I know who has seen it, including myself, has named this movie as one of their absolute favorite. The ending just kills me every time. Highly recommend.

Should be number 1. Not enough people watched this movie because they think it's just going to be another mindless movie about ighting. It's not, it's pure brilliance

This is the best movie of 2011. No doubt about it. I saw this movie more then 50 times.


An incredible story about cancer

It's the 21st Century "Groundhog Day". Well, sort of. - BKAllmighty


Even though this was not my favorite movie to be released in 2011, it is probably be one of the few movies that will be remembered as a classic.

Superb movie with Ryan Gosling, I think it will be a totally classic, a movie about heroism, protection, the fight for good, it reminds us the dollars trilogy - MatrixGuy

Harry potter, Thor, Transformers!? Drive is totally the best, then Warrior, and the Rise of the Apes, Transformers? Gotta be a joke

2011 was a pretty weak year for movies. Luckily we had Drive to add a bit if excitement to the dull and uninspired year.

10Cars 2

I wish most people would start loving this movie than hate it's parts are awesome I really mean it who dosen't like to spy? Maybe some people don't, but I do even in my opinion it's better than the first, but I don't take it as the best Pixar movie though - NintendoKart64

Why on Earth do people say it's the worst Pixar movie, for me it would come as my 6th favorite pixar movie and actually the worst pixar movie and the only one I didn't enjoy was Brave!

I hated the 1st one but this is amazing. Why did People say it was 'Pixars worst movie'?

The Contenders

11Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

This film rose way beove it's expectations. It was fast-paced, had great acting, a great story and great sub-plots, great special effects and was funny. The best of the series and the best of the year. Harry Potter and Pirates 4 were both great too. - BKAllmighty


Excellent animation, funny and serious when it needs to be either, and the voice acting is great. This movie has nearly no flaws. only one I would give it is the similar environments, which isn't really a problem, just made it a little easier to make because the animators got more and more used to making plains of desert. Also, I love the music in this movie. It suits the tone perfectly and is fun to listen to on its own.

This Movie rose above being just another kids movie and became a tribute to classic westerns, a meta comedy and even a little bit of an art house film. It was surprisingly good.

13The Muppets

If you don't like the Muppets, I'm fine with that. But actually hating the Muppets, you are most likely dead inside.

Given the fact that the best movie of 2011 was THE MUPPETS, let's say it's been a pretty terrible year for movies.

14Puss in Boots

This movie was so cute! I remember seeing it when I was younger.


The best movie of 2011!
Excellent music, animation, characters, history, all

Saw this movie twice it was beautiful.
