Puss In Boots (2011)
I love Puss so naturally I loved this cartoon. However, my favorite character was not Puss, it was Humpty and that cat that kept popping up and saying "oooooh."

Say what you will, my whole loves these potheads. All of us (except for the minor) went to see it and loved it. It was a proud day when I got my mom hooked on them because she was the first to ask when we were going to see this. I love the explanation of why NPH was there even though he had been shot in the previous movie.

I don't know why I keep watching these (no wait, yes I do, it's called Rob Pattinson, Jackson Rathbone, and the entire wolf pack), but regardless. As with the books, the movies have gotten slightly better as they go on. There's still a lot to laugh at and I still want to smack Bela for being so...something. Can't think of the word.

Moneyball (2011)
Don't get me wrong, I'm very open to movies that have sports involved, but this just didn't strike that much for me. It's got the actors, the story, but something was kind of boring about it to me.

Anyone on tumblr will know the general consensus on this one (which I also share): gay, gay, and more gay [all in the good way]. The movie itself is wonderful and fun, and even if it wasn't the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law alone is enough make it enjoyable.

Before going to see this I heard in passing someone talking about it, saying it was "stupid with no plot or point." Well duh! What did you expect, the greatest story ever told? Sometimes you just got to see a movie and be entertained for no other reason than to be entertained. My mom, sis and I went to see this after school had ended for the semester just to blow off of steam and had a fun night out.

I've been wanting to read the books and watch the original Swedish versions but that didn't happen before I saw this film. And what a film it was. I wish I had had a chance to see it again because I'm sure I missed a lot. The cinematography, the music, the story and acting were all superb.

War Horse (2011)
I'm an animal lover, so inevitably anytime and every time I see a movie about animals being mistreated, loved, etc... I end up crying. A lot. But this one takes the cake for tears shed and how often. It seemed like when I finally stopped crying, two seconds later I would start again. My original motivation for seeing this was just to see Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch, but the movie was fantastic.

I'm a recent Tom convert, I loved the other MI movies so of course I wanted to see this one (bonus for Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner). It was fantastic. People can about Tom all they want, but he does not mess around when it comes to MI, this labour of love. Kudos to Tom for those stunts (and I admit I dig his longer hair in these movies too). The best interaction in the movie is between Benji (Pegg) and Brandt (Renner), total bromance in the making there and I want another movie just to see them two on screen together again.

Again, my motivation to see this was nefarious: I wanted to see Matt Damon and Colin Ford. Once again, it turned out to be a really good movie with funny/touching/angsty moments. I even tolerated ScarJo.

I'm kind of "Yay" or "Nay" when it comes to Woody Allen but I really wanted to this because I love Owen Wilson (and Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams are in it too). The trailers really didn't do this movie justice imo. I loved everything about it, particularly the use of real literary historical figures. Bonus: Tom Hiddleston and Adrien Brody!

I really wanted to see this movie because I love Anna Faris and I wanted to see all the guys. A lot of "professional" reviews didn't like it so much, which is why I never pay attention to them otherwise I would never watch anything (and likewise for you, these are purely my opinion. Watch them yourself to decide if you like them or not). All the ladies of the family liked this one (the men haven't watched it yet). Again, like "NYE" sometimes you just got to watch to be entertained.

Haywire (2011)
When I first saw the trailer for this I was super excited 1) for all the guys in it, and 2) for Gina Carano. A chick who could legitimately kick ass, not some twig like Keira Knightly who you're suppose to believe could do it. I know some people didn't like that there wasn't a lot of dialogue or super fast-paced, but that's how Steven Soderbergh rolls with this one. I enjoyed it.

My sis bought me the book and after I found out who was in it (Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Hurt, Tom Hardy, etc...) then I really had to see it. TTSS is extremely British and if you're all about current action/spy movies with lots of running, guns and explosions than you may not like this one. The strength of this movie lies in the performances, the intuition, the intelligence, the danger that you know these men are capable of.

All of us should know better than to expect a lot from sequels these days. I pretty much had this one figured out before it started and then I asked myself "Why did they make this? Really?" My favorite part was anytime Michael Ealy or Theo James were on screen because they made everything a little better looking. Shallow thought? Yes. Do I care? No.

I am not one for horror films, mainly because most of them are remakes or part 7's or something. This however intrigued me because it seemed a bit more on the psychological side. I loved Daniel Radcliffe because there are no traces of HP here at all. Throughout the whole movie the tension is building and I had to look away a few times. What made this movie even better was that even though it didn't seem that scary at the time, hours later when I was at home my mind would wonder back to it and then I ended up scaring myself thinking about it.

Obviously not a new movie, more of a revisit. I remember when it first came out, my sis, mom, and I ditched school to go see it (as we did with many other films during this time) and even though we didn't this time it was a nice remembrance of a good time. I still love this movie now like I did then (though it is by no means my favorite). Of course it was in 3D which I don't feel added anything to it, and I continue to send my mental waves to George Lucas telling him "George, stop messing with them! They're done, get over it! How about making those last three instead?"

I really wanted to see this because of Chris Pine, and Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon (I kinda love her okay?). I figured I was gonna go by myself but my bro actually wanted to see it too. Needless to say, we were the only brother/sister pair in the theater but I digress! It was really enjoyable, funny and the friendship/bromance between Pine and Hardy is funny/cute/believable (Trivia for you: both have Star Trek links, Pine in the new movies and Hardy was in ST: Nemesis). I like a lot of movies that others don't to seem to like, but my brother said he really liked it too (and he always complains about the movies I watch) so I know it's not just me.

Another one I went to see with my bro. I've never considered myself a George Clooney "fan," I've liked his movies but I never really got obsessed (for lack of a better word) over any of them. However, this is now my favorite Clooney movie (not counting The Fantastic Mr. Fox). Clooney playing a regular guy- father, husband was a nice change and his "daughters" were brats but it was believable as opposed to movies were the kid/parent relationship is always perfect. I really liked the feel of the movie too. It takes place in Hawaii, which most of us associate with sunshine and paradise, but the film has a dark, muted tone so everything, including the Hawaiian landscape, seems dull and sad- which fits perfectly with what's going on with the characters in the story.

So the other list I have was movies I'd seen in 2011, and I've been to the movies a lot already this year so I thought I'd do another one. *Also* I know some of the movies technically came out last year, but I either watched them right at the end of the year or I've barely watched them this year which is why they are here under "2012." ^_^
