The Ten Spot: My Favorite Movie Moments of 2011

It surely wasn't an amazing year for movies but there were still some moments that entertained the shit out of me. From scrumptious asses to furry aliens, here's the highlights for me of the past year in film. Everybody have a great New Year. Hopefully the world doesn't end in the next.

Honorable Mention: Say What? - RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

It wasn't one of the more exciting scenes in the film and happened to be a moment we all knew was coming sooner or later but it still sparked a couple goosebumps when Caesar talked his first bit of shit.

10. When Worlds Collide - MELANCHOLIA

The first half of this film did nothing for me. The second half more than made up for it, highlighted by the final scene in which we finally get to see the other planet. Up close.

9. Portman's Ass - YOUR HIGHNESS

In another bland comedy with more than enough missed opportunities, Natalie Portman delivered the hottest 5 seconds of cinema of the year. Thongs do this woman well. Let's try pasties next time.

8. The Safe Heist - FAST FIVE

By the time we got to this scene it didn't matter how ridiculous the rest of the movie was. Show me the giant safe smash into more shit and I'll forgive the stupid amount of dialogue you gave Tyrese. He's so crazy! Shut up.

7. Production Value - SUPER 8

A relentless attack on your senses that leaves you gripping your seat and ducking your head. And then the alien shows up. A great scene kicked off by some fantastic acting by the kids. I shot a scene like this once and a bird flew into frame and shat on my ear. It was awesome.

6. Deceptiworm - TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON

If this film was an hour and a half of this crazy bastard destroying Chicago it would be one of the greatest achievements in film and my inner child would have passed away with delightful orgasmic convulsions. It wasn't. Stupid people talk stupid stuff.

5. Go F*ck Yourselves - X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

The best cameo ever? Maybe, but there's no doubt it was one of the highlights of this year. Great movie. Great line. Great sideburns.

4. Run, Moses, Run - ATTACK THE BLOCK

What could have been a sloppy shaky-cam sequence turned out to be one of the best action sequences of the year as Moses makes his run from apartment to apartment in this slow-motion masterpiece.

3. Nailed the Dismount - FINAL DESTINATION 5

This one scene embodies everything that was ever good about the FINAL DESTINATION franchise. Tension, mystery, fear, blood, and shock value. Nothing made me jump like the climax of this routine.

2. Look Away - BRIDESMAIDS

I didn't even come close to laughing this hard during any other film this year. Completely blinded with tears throughout the whole sequence. That's what happens when you mix some shit jokes into your chick flick. Take note.

1. Going Down - DRIVE

An atmospheric onslaught of romance, tension, and brutal violence, perfectly lit, perfectly scored, and perfectly offsetting. In a word - PERFECT.

Very powerful scene. In fact, I actually thought of "Irreversible" when I watched this scene. Then I checked IMDB's trivia page and I was right.

I agree, but what do you expect from JoBlo? 50% of their reviews drop comments about "hotties" so that they can convince the world they're the Maxim Magazine/Spike TV of film review sites (or convince people they aren't gay). Shit and fart jokes come with the territory.

I thought another good scene would have been the twist ending...but I guess revealing it would be considered a huge spoiler, so I guess this is a close second place. And I agree, this is arguably the best death in the series. I was so shocked, that I flew my hands back when it happened.

I somehow guessed this was the top pick, but for good reason. It was a hell of a scene and the graphic payoff had me gasping. In fact, all the violence in this had me gasping, but this was definitely one of the more brutal and unsettling scenes in the film, not to mention a huge turning point.

Def. one of the best of the entire series. However, I also found it to be one of the most ridiculous. While the series is full of em, I just couldn't get over how pretty physically impossible it is for this to happen. Still, it was frickin brutal.

@darkvampire

Dude your reply was written so sloppy that it took me trying to read it 3 times before I realized you're insulting "Drive". With that being the case, I wouldn't say much if I was you when it comes to insulting something.

Maybe you should learn how to construct a response that makes sense before you call anyone else a retard... just sayin.

Don't agree with your 2 and 3. Didn't really like Bridesmaids and while I agree that the set-up of that FD5 scene was great, the pay-off was ridiculous, very unbelievable that something like that would happen, it's like having someone slip on the sidewalk with his head falling off or something.

That's not really fair to say about FD5 because all of the deaths are supposed to be ridiculous. I mean, it's Death causing it. After 4 films, you'd think that the filmmakers trying to make elaborate death scenes would be a given.

You're right. All of the believable Final Destination deaths would have been a better pick than this.

Not sure why the whole transformers hate..

The third one was technically beautiful and even the plot with the humans and decipticons team up I thought was def smarter then the last two films.

The whole chicago scene was great in 3d

Great list, except for the transformers bit, almost perfect... well Bridesmaids was too high for my liking as well... but still, I could see myself doing a similar one

Meh... Love the list except for this. It was fun for the first five minutes but it kept getting longer and longer and so on. Bay had something here for a moment but he ruined it at the end, just like the series
