Best Movies of 2011

The Top Ten
1 Harry 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 film definitely is not only the best movie of 2011, but the best movie of all time! This movie kicked the bloody hell out of LOTR's ass! And I mean the entire trilogy, not just one of them!

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!

2 X-Men: First Class

This should be #1.
HERE IS TEN REASONS!
10, We wanted to see Eric and Charles's friendship better, and the film gave us that.
9, The acting is OUTSTANDING!
8, The characters are more interesting now that we saw most of there past.
7, Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine) Had a cameo and it was HILARIOUS!
6, The villains are great!
5, The story is spectacular!
4, The plot is great!
3, The beginning was great and including the ending.
2, It had emotional, happy, funny, and scary moments!
1, It's easily the best X-Men movie because of the nine reasons behind this reason!
Oh yeah, and Harry Potter is over and X-Men is not! HA! (All you Harry Potter fans can unlike this comment all you want! )

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.

3 Captain America: The First Avenger

Chris Evans is beast in this film! He is unreal, a top young actor!

4 Thor

The movie was ok the characters were good the frost giants were dumb Loki was good and overall I give this film a 6.5 out of 10

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

5 Rise of the Planet of the Apes
6 Transformers: 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.

This movie just break the record of Transformers 1 and 2. This was the awesomeness of Transformers. This film has most actions that are played in any movie. I think TRANSFORMERS is the best movie of this decade. The dialoges just touch the heart of anyone and are very meaningful. Optimus and its team are just brilliant...

This is the only transformers movie I like, screw the rest. I hate em'

7 The 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.

Honestly I have this tied with Rango. But since this is higher on the list I voted this one.

8 Mission: 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.

9 Hugo

One of my favorite childhoods.

10 Drive

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.

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

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

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

The Contenders
11 Rango

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.

Best movie of 2011! it should be number 1

12 Kung Fu Panda 2

Greatest installment in the entire trilogy. Darker tone, even more engaging character development, and, just like before, stellar animation and an epic score by both Hans Zimmer and John Powell.

The only people who hate this movie (or find Cars 2 to be any better) are a bunch of annoying tiggers who should be deported to Brazil.

This movie needs to be A LOT higher on this list than Cars 2. Cars 2 sucked so bad that it gave me prostate cancer.

Greatest animated sequel of all time. Yes, even including HTTYD2, Shrek 2, and Toy Story 2!

13 Warrior

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.

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 movie put Rocky to shame.

14 Arthur Christmas

One of the greatest animated Christmas films of all time. Way better than all the Rankin/Bass holiday specials combined.

15 Cars 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

I love this movie :) This film is one of my favorite best movies of 2011, same as The help, Kung fu panda 2, Rio, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On stranger tides. I love this movie so much, the feelings hurts. I love Cars 1 and Cars 2 so much. I love the wallpaper of Cars 2, it is so beautiful. I love the characters Mater, McQueen, Finn McMissile, and Holley Shiftwell.

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'?

16 The Artist

Won of the best films I have ever scene. How the hell is Transformers 3 on this list?!

Musically brilliant even if a part of it is "lifted" from Vertigo.

17 Source Code

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

18 The Adventures of Tintin

If more motion capture movies looked like this, the motion capture medium of animation would still be thriving to this day.

Awesome! As a big fan of the tintin books I knew the movie was great. Hopefully there's a second one

The only good motion capture animated film out there.

It's definitely great for any animation fans!

19 Moneyball
20 Puss in Boots

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

21 50/50
22 Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
23 Final Destination 5
24 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

How could you put this great movie at 21 this is an insult it should be at least 15 or so.

25 The Help

Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer all in the same movie together = heaven.

Why is is not higher on this list?! This is honestly the best movie of the 21rst century in my opinion!
