Re: Best Movies of the year so far... (2011)

I have to throw Rise of the Planet of the Apes in there.  It's probably the best movie I've seen this year.

Most disappointing?  The Thing Prequel/Remake.

If you're also into stylish yet hardcore action-packed crime dramas, TAKERS is pretty good.

I may be "cheating" here, but The Woman is easily my favorite film of the year.

Really looking forward to seeing this. I've heard nothing but good reviews about it from TRUE horror fans.
