The first half of 2011 is in the books...

...and with that, we move on to the latter half of the year, where film really begins to shine. That being said, there were plenty of quality flicks that debuted in January through June. In fact, as you'll see in my annual "Best of the first half of the year" article (look for it soon), there were well over a dozen movies that ranged from very good to masterpiece status. My best (and worst) list will be public knowledge soon enough, but for now...what were your favorite and least favorite films of 2011 so far? Let us know!

-Sound off on the first half of 2011!


  1. Astute readers will have a good idea of what my list will partially look like...

  2. By far
    Best film: Bridemaids
    Worst film :TIE - Hanna and Green Lantern

  3. Whilst I really haven't seen anything that I particularly loved so far this year, I would probably say:
    BEST FILM: (tie) Super 8/Water For Elephants
    WORST FILM: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

  4. Super 8 is a strong choice, as was John's choice of Bridesmaids...

    I haven't subjected myself to Transformers yet, luckily.

  5. Personally, I've found the first half of the year to be pretty uninspired. There hasn't been too many films that I've been passionate about in the positive or negative. But, if I'm going to choose, I'd say-

    Best: RANGO

  6. Fair enough...both of those fell into the "decent" category for me.

  7. Best: Midnight in Paris
    Worst (tie): I Am Number Four and Pirates of the Caribbean
    Most disappointing: Source Code

    I'll tell you the rest later.

  8. I disagree about Source Code, but that's me.

  9. It saddens me to see what has come of the Oscar Igloo, especially the predictions which have become increasingly ludicrous and off base, and the message board.

  10. Well, this hasn't been The Oscar Igloo in years, but I'm sorry you feel that way. The vast majority of people seem to be as pleased as ever, if not more. There have never been more views to the site, so we're obviously doing something right. As for the board, users would rather comment directly on the posts now...
