2011: My Year In Movies

I watched a lot of movies in 2011.  This was the first year that I kept track, and I was surprised just how many there were.  Of course, a lot of these were for my project of seeing all of the non R-rated movies on AFI’s top 100 American films list.  I’ll give more details and reviews on those next week.  For now, here’s my overall 2011 list.  Notice how my rate drops off when the AFI project finished, and when the fall semester started.  Alas.  Keep in mind, the 1-10 scores are how much I enjoyed watching them, and does not somehow measure any objective quality (which explains #18, I hope).  Perfect tens are in italics.
