TOP 10 MOVIES OF 2011 (According to Mike Sampson)I have the benefit of going last in these "Best Of" lists with our film critics. So I've seen how the JoBlo.com readers have taken to the lists of Chris and Jimmy. To help counteract that negative feedback, I'll simply say that what you're about to read below is not a definitive list of the "best" films of the year. These are simply ten films I really enjoyed. I had a great time watching them, talking about them and then watching them again. Some of them, I can admit, aren't "great" movies and would probably never win any awards. I probably saw some movies that are technically "better" than these movies. HUGO, for example, is probably more well done than some of these films but I just didn't connect with it on an emotional level. But if someone asked me to recommend a movie to them, I'd pass them along this list.
Also, I see a lot of overrated! comments and, well, there's really nothing I can do about that. I can only tell you my honest reaction to a movie and if I loved a movie, it would be disingenuous to not include it in my list. You can disagree but I'm being up front and telling you these are just my personal choices. Like them, love them or hate them.
