This post is in the spirit of those year in review style posts. To be clear, these aren’t what I consider to be the best movies of 2011 out of every movie. Although a couple will also appear on that forthcoming list. These are just the best on Netflix. I know you need to watch something up to date every once in a while.

Technically some of these films are dated as being from 2010 but I’m going on when it was actually available to be seen by the majority of folks in the US. So I’ve included some that had a foreign, limited or festival release in 2010 but went wide on DVD in 2011.

Simply click the film’s title to be whisked away to it on Netflix.

DRAMA

Certified Copy (Copie conforme) (French) (Available Until 12/27/14)

"I'm afraid there's nothing very simple about being simple"

It’s certainly difficult to describe Certified Copy without giving away the movie. So let’s put it this way, a man and a woman who have a barbed attraction share a day together. Yes, it’s a talking movie. I loved it! The film stars Juliette Binoche and William Shimell.

A Little Help (Available Until 10/25/14)

After her husband’s passing a woman has to deal with raising her son and herself. This is a good little movie starring Jenna Fischer. Chris O’Donnell and Rob Benedict (Waiting) costar.

Passion Play (Available Until 07/20/13)

“Fuck normal”

Oh, Passion Play. I love the entire idea, casting, visual choices, et al of this film. Mickey Rourke stumbles into a traveling sideshow and meets a beautiful young woman (Megan Fox) who plays the part of an angel. Of course they fall for each other. Then there’s the fact that he’s tangled up with some other unsavory folks. The movie costars Bill Murray, Kelly Lynch and Rhys Ifans.

Limitless (Available Until 05/16/13)

Limitless is about a writer (Bradley Cooper) who ends up trying a drug that gives you hyper focus and confidence, or as I saw one commenter remark, something like a mix of Ritalin and Cocaine. Limitless was originally entitled Dark Fields and I get the feeling that it was supposed to be darker but it still works so well as this polished finished product. I’m still not sure of the character’s motivation but yeah, it was awesome!

Last Night (Available Until 01/01/13)

Last Night is about a married couple (Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington) who’ve been together for a while but are both tempted to cheat on the same night. Knightley’s character is definitely more fleshed out and relate-able. Ah, maybe that’s just to me, she’s a novelist who currently writes fashion pieces. Her possible fling is with a hot, foreign ex. Worthington mainly seems like a stock faithful husband who is confused and tempted. It’s by Eva Mendes though so it totally makes sense. In real life I believe cheating is basically the worst thing you can ever do but when it’s possibly going to be Worthington and Mendes getting it on, well, yes, I was egging them on. And Griffin Dunne plays a writer! I love when he does that.

A Beautiful Life (Mei Li Ren Sheng) (China/Hong Kong) (Available Until 12/13/12)

A booze and high heel loving real estate agent meets a police officer. She leads him on a bit while basically using him to do things for her. It’s one of those friend zone relationships. Do they get together? Ooh.

COMEDY

No Strings Attached (Available Until 06/22/13)

Well this is one of the two fuck buddies movies that were released in 2011 and it’s not the better of the two, that would be Friends with Benefits. However this is a decent, entertaining movie. Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher are two acquaintances who keep meeting. Eventually they hook up and then fall into a friends with benefits situation. I adore Portman playing a woman who is now trying to compartmentalize her life into just work (as a doctor) and sex after seemingly just working for a while. Kutcher works in TV. Kevin Kline and Cary Elwes costar. I feel like they were underused. Well Kline gets some scenes but is a bit cartoony. Elwes gets to say like two words. Ludacris, Lake Bell and Mindy Kaling costar.

Take Me Home Tonight (Available Until 05/16/13)

Topher Grace stars in this 80s themed comedy as a high school graduate (who was promising) but has been squandering his time since then. He runs into a crush (Amber Heard) and decides to lie his way into her good graces. The bulk of the film is set at a party involving a ton of great actors, Anna Faris (as his sister), Dan Fogler (as his sidekick), Chris Pratt (Faris’ IRL hubby as her onscreen fiance), Lucy Punch, Michael Ian Black and Michelle Trachtenberg. Funny flick. Check it out.

Potiche (Trophy Wife) (French) (Available Until 03/17/13)

Catherine Deneuve stars as the housewife of a jerk who runs a plant. She ends up taking it over. In doing so she meets up with a youthful dalliance (GĂ©rard Depardieu) who opposes everything that her husband stands for. And it’s set in the 70’s! The costumes are awesome.

THRILLER/HORROR

Faces in the Crowd (Available Until 10/25/16)

Milla Jovovich witnesses a murder and then is attacked by the murderer. In the process she is injured resulting in Prosopagnosia, which is severe face blindness. She can’t recognize anyone. Not only does this interfere with her day to day life but now she has no way of identifying the criminal. Julian McMahon costars as a police detective who takes a shine to her.

Hobo with a Shotgun (Available Until 08/05/14)

Rutger Hauer stars as the title character, yes a hobo with a shotgun!, in this zany exploitation flick.

The Resident (Available Until 07/20/12)

Jeffrey Dean Morgan creepily stalks his tenant, solitary doctor Hilary Swank. Lee Pace and Christopher Lee costar.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (Available Until 12/29/14)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQOZHEYhVtU
This was so frickin’ funny but it wasn’t really promoted at all. Tyler Labine (Reaper, Mad Love) and Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Dollhouse) are two likeable hillbillies who’ve saved up to buy a vacation cabin in the woods. They are all excited about chilling out when they meet some yuppie college kids who only see them as scary backwoods stereotypes. A ton of hilarious deaths ensue.

Red State (Available Until 10/18/14)

Three high school kids go in search of tail but end up in a really fucked up situation in this Kevin Smith film. Supposedly Kyle Gallner actually had a real panic attack during filming. The cast also includes John Goodman and Michael Angarano. The movie drags a little at one point but it picks back up.

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (Available Until 05/03/14)


Dylan Dog wasn’t that great or anything but I still feel the need to include it because there’s some good stuff in it. Brandon Routh is a supernatural PI who’s bestie, Sam Huntington, dies and is shocked to find out that he’s now one of the undead. Huntington always cracks me up. Routh’s chest is mesmerizing. Some of the undead stuff is pretty inventive. The big bad is way too Spawny though.

Insidious (Available Until 05/09/13)

The creative team behind the first Saw film, James Wan and Leigh Whannell, wrote and directed this flick. It’s a vintage feeling ghost story. A family has to deal with a haunting. Rose Byrne (barf) and Patrick Wilson play the parents. Eventually they bring in a team of Ghost Hunters type investigators (including Lin Shaye and Leigh Whannell). The movie has a great ambiance. I didn’t see that first little twist near the ending coming either.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno is a hilarious film by Kevin Smith starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks about two best friends who decide to film a porno together because they are destitute.

I love Craig Robinson.

 

I’m F&cking Seth Rogen!

video made by Rogen and Banks to promote the movie

Funny promo ID I made when the film was released. The site is still up, just click this pic to go make your own.

 

Zack: “That’s actually my fault, I should tell you, I asked for Friday morning off, so, sorry about that”
Delaney: “For what?”
Zack: “I actually just need a lot of recovery time, uh, tonight is me and Miri’s high school reunion, I’m just gonna get fuckin alcohol poisoning”

Zack: “What if you could do it all over again?”
Delaney: “I would jerk off and live by myself. That woman is the bane of my existence.”

Miri: “Tell me this doesn’t rock”
Zack: “It looks like you’re fuckin Ronald McDonald, it makes me want some chicken nuggets.”

Zack: “…no I’m a guy, give me 2 Popsicle sticks and a rubber band, I’ll find a way to fuck it, like a filthy MacGuyver”

Miri: “Is this sexy?”
Zack: “Yeah, in a To Catch A Predator sort of way, it’s pretty fuckin sexy”

Miri: “Look, even though we’re broke and we never amounted to anything we’re still better than these people, right?”
Zack: “No, not at all, we’re probably not even as good as most of em unless one of them’s a crackhead or something”

Bobby Long: “Well listen to you, thank you”
Miri: “No, don’t thank me, just fuck me”

Zack: “…see that right there, the one dressed like Hannah Montana”

Brandon St Randy: “Who knew you’d come to Pittsburgh and meet a celebrity?”
Miri: “I’m gonna binge drink now until I pass out.”

Zack: “They fight just like real people.”

Miri: “You jest but these are the exact circumstances that people find themselves in right before they start having sex for money or makin porn.”

Miri: “If it’s so easy why doesn’t everybody do it?”
Zack: “Because other people have options and dignity, which we do not have, which puts us in an amazingly advantageous situation.”

Zack: “Porn has gone mainstream, it’s like Coca Cola or Pepsi with dicks in it…”

Miri: “Nobody wants to see us fuck”
Zack: “Everybody wants to see anybody fuck, I hate Rosie O Donnell but if somebody told me they had a video of her gettin fucked stupid I’d be like ‘why aren’t we watching that right now?'”

Zack: “Okay, you don’t want to fuck a stranger in a porno movie, for some reason…”

Zack: “This guy is amazing”
Miri: “He’s great lookin too”
Zack: “I wanna fuck him”

Zack: “Dawn of the Dick”
Miri: “But how are zombies doing it at all sexy?”
Zack: “I want to eat your brain, and your ass…”

Stacey: “Oh wait, oral, I like anal”

Lester: “Lester the Molester Cockinshtuff”
Zack: “That is the best porn name I’ve ever heard”
Lester: “I can have a porn name? Then I pick Pete Jones.”

Lester: “If I have to fuck a guy okay, but I’d rather fuck a girl”

Delaney: “On the other hand, fuck my wife”

Delaney: “What, Han Solo ain’t never had no sex with Princess Leia in the Star War!”

Lester: “Shit, are we really gonna shoot this in outer space?”

Miri: “like you know what you’re doing down there at all”
Zack: “I actually don’t, where’s the clitoris again? Is it in your ass?”

Zack: “It’s a movie, what could go wrong?”

Delaney: “I just wanted to see some free titties, that’s all, but there’s no such thing as free titties, is there Zack, is there?”

Zack: “Swallow My Cockucinno!”

Zack: “Look at all this production value, just waiting for us to put balls on it”

Delaney: “Don’t do that, the little dog don’t like that.”

Delaney: “I like that guy, but if he tries to fuck that little dog tonight, for real, I’m calling the Humane Society.”

Zack: “More tongue…little less tongue”

drunk customer: “Did you see the game? I was at it. Fuckin Rothis…Rothilsberger, the quarterback, was like, hug it, chuck it, football all night”

Zack: “What an artist, that guy, wasn’t that Kurosawa’s motto, ‘shit goin into other shit’?”

Deacon: “Jesus, what is that? A rumba?”
Lester: “What’s a rumba?”
Deacon: “That awkward movement.”

Miri: “That’s too dirty”
Zack: “Really?”
Miri: “That offends me”

Delaney: “This is the worst porno I’ve ever seen.”

Zack: (after sex with Miri) “That was fun”
Miri: “Yeah, fun”

Delaney: “So ain’t no prizes or?”
Zack: “No, no”

Delaney: “White people are fucked up.”
Zack: “Yup, they sure are”

Lester: “…she said she missed the smell of you or some shit. (sniffs Zack). I don’t smell shit but that probably means she loves you or something.”
