Many Movies in 2011

What follows is a list of all the movies I've watched this year that I've never seen before. I'm not using a star rating system and I'm fairly generous with my grades, because movies are people too and they deserve to be praised even when they're mediocre and disappointing to their parents. Obviously, I'm not projecting my own neuroses onto this or anything. (I think reviews are more useful than grades or stars, but I don't write reviews, so grades it is). I typically adhere to the whole 100 movies in a year thing, but this year I'm not going to be held to some arbitrary number, so this is my Many Movies in 2011 list and no matter how many movies I watch, I'm a winner.

Bold denotes movies I loved; Italics denotes movies seen in a theatre
