Films of 2011

Most of the best films that I saw last year I watched at home and were not from 2011. I watched a batch of the Oscar nominations, including the overlooked Winter’s Bone; a dark piece about a backwards community in the Osarks. I also saw The Social Network which shared a scriptwriter with the best film that I saw in the cinema. Aaron Sorkin being credited on Moneyball.

The highlight of the big movie blockbusters was the concluding episode of Harry Potter, which was entertaining, but would have benefited from focusing more on the Snape and Harry’s decisions. Nonetheless, it did provide spectacle and closure on the saga ten years after The Philosophers Stone first arrived in the cinema. Oddly, that film was not released in the US, as the American title was in keeping with the first book, The Sorcerers Stone

There are several films released in 2011 that I did not get to see in the cinema and shall watch at home between now and the Oscars. These will include Ides of March and the Hoover biopic.
