This is a very tough question for me since there are several films this year which I thought were outstanding but if I can only pick one it would be "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". I was incredibly surprised and impressed with how good it was and James Franco, Andy Serkis and John Lithgow were all great.

This is another spambot thread, but since real people have invaded, I'm sure the mods will clear up the first post and leave the rest..

For me, without a doubt, it's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. An utterly brilliant film. It's clever, patient and atmospheric, with excellent performances by an excellent cast. It's not out in the US until December, but I strongly recommend you all see it when it does arrive. I sense a number of Oscars in its future.
I hadn't really heard anything about it until it was released, and suddenly my Facebook page was full of people gushing about how amazing it was, so I made a rare trip to the cinema and man, they weren't wrong.

I wasn't overly fond of Rise of the Planet of the Apes; it certainly wasn't a bad movie, and the cast (especially Serkis) were good, but I felt it was let down by the script. (The bio lab especially annoyed me, though my own scientific training probably didn't help my sensitivity to that; there were so many egregious violations of basic scientific and biosecurity procedures and the like that weren't even necessary to the plot, grumble mutter...)

The first post was by a bot, but it's been deleted by our ever-efficient overlords, leaving only the humans.

Yes, I deleted the first post. Overlord... I like it. Keep calling me this :twisted: :mrgreen:

I'm more into TV shows and haven't seen much of the 2011 films. None in cinema, and just a handful on blu-ray. I liked "True Grit", although western is not my genre at all. Also, I just saw "Harry Potter 7.2". Great movie, good finale to the series.

Weel, I haven't seen a lot of movies this year, but Rise of the Planets of the Apes (I love Andy Serkis since his role in LotR :D ) and Harry Potter (even if there are some differences between movie and book) were two great movies :D

PS : spawn more Overlords :D
