Hope you have seen all the 15 earlier 2011 movies i suggested:).Here are some more 2011 movies i enjoyed:).



50/50
One of the best movies of 2011 i have seen so far,50/50 is a superb feel good film:).Inspired by a true story,this movie is a comedy centered on a 27-year-old guy who learns of his cancer diagnosis, and his subsequent struggle to beat the disease.This movie's main strength is its script:),which treats a serious subject in a nice and humorous manner:),thus making it fun to watch.Also.worth mentioning is Joseph Gordon-Levitt's superb performance,as Adam.His realistic performance is a huge boost to the film.Its surprising that this movie didn't get any Oscar nomination,especially in the Best Screenplay,Best Actor and Best Film category.But still,for its wonderful script,direction and superb performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt,this is definitely a must watch:).

Genre:- Comedy, Drama.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has decent pace:).
My Rating:-







 Moneyball
Moneyball is a very good movie on baseball,which can be enjoyed by even those who don't follow the sport:). This movie tells the story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.This is a solid drama with a well written script:). Brad Pitt gives a very good and convincing performance as Billy Beane.No wonder this movie has ended up with 7 Oscar nominations:).For its well written script,direction and a solid performance by Brad Pitt,this is a very good watch:).

Genre:- Drama, Sport.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-








 The Ides Of March 
The Ides of March is a well directed political thriller:). Here, an idealistic staffer for a newbie presidential candidate gets a crash course on dirty politics during his stint on the campaign trail.This movie succeeds mainly because of its very good direction by George Clooney. Also what stands out for the movie is its cast.Ryan Gosling stands out in the film,with his well controlled performance as Stephen Meyers:).George Clooney as Governor Mike Morris also does a good job.For its great direction,strong performances and an intelligent script,this is a very good watch:).

Genre:- Drama, Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-








 Real Steel
Real Steel is a very good,entertaining robot boxing movie:). Set in the near future, where robot boxing is a top sport,in this movie,a struggling promoter feels he's found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father.This movie works mainly because of its thrillingly filmed action sequences and of course the entertainment factor:). But unfortunately,at the end of the day,the plot is a little too cheesy,for it to become a memorable action movie:(. But still for its robot boxing entertainment,this is a very good watch:).

Genre:- Action, Sci-Fi, Sport.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has very good pace:).
My Rating:-








The Adjustment Bureau
The Adjustment Bureau is a good entertaining romance,sci-fi thriller:). Here,the affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart.The movie works because of its interesting plot that unknown to us there exists a secret worldwide network that keeps mankind running according to a pre-written plan.Also what works for it is its lead cast.Both Matt Damon and Emily Blunt give good performances and have a striking chemistry together:). Unfortunately, the movie fails to take advantage of these factors,with its simple script which lacks intelligence:(. But still for its lead pair and good plot,this is a good and entertaining watch:)

  2. Way to go, bro! I've yet to watch Ides of March. Tried to watch it once but got bored in the beginning. Will give it another try. :P All other movies are good. Especially 50/50. I agree with you on Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance. I'm a big fan of his. Try to complete 3rd Rock From The Sun if you can. It's hilarious. :) Moneyball is an awesome movie too. Thanks for suggesting these movies to me. :)

    \m/ Keep Rocking \m/
