Four Lions (2010)
Watched in 2011 (part 1)

Like many other Listal users, I decided to document the films I've watched in 2011 with thoughts on most of them. This list is for the films I watched during January through June of 2011.

50 Lovely Ladies

Not so much a best of list, but I wasn't sure where else to put this one. 50 of the hottest/most beautiful/lovely women past & present (in my opinion, of course).

Best to worsts

All of the lists with the title "(Director name): Best to wor...still pretty damn good" were inspired by Xanadon't's Scorsese: Best to wor...still pretty damn good list. Title reused with his permission.

Pixar films in the order I like them

So-called because Pixar hasn't made a bad film yet (though Cars 2 looks to be the one that breaks that trend). Had Xanadon't made his Scorsese list before I made this one, it would have the "still pretty damn good" title.

If you'd like to see a Pixar list with that title, I.T. Log has created one.

The Shining (1980)
Stephen King films: Best to worst

A true best to worst list, ranking the film adaptations of Stephen King that I've seen (both theatrical releases and made-for-TV). Technically this is a DVD list, but it fits the criteria of movies so I've included it here.

Help me lower my IQ this summer

I asked the Listal community to help me with watching the films in my Netflix Instant Queue, and thanks to the recommendations I now have a guide for what to watch whenever I can't decide. This list is updated whenever I watch any of the films listed in it, and my thoughts on the films can be found in my Watched in 2011 lists (linked to at the top of this page).
