Well, I decided to go to the movies and see a couple more before the year was out. I think it's safe to say this is probably it for the year now, as I don't plan to see another one tonight.

The first one was Sherlock Holmes, and it was enjoyable, but it was par for the course of the first one. The jokes were there, Downey Jr's. wit was still there, but I think it loses some points for me in how the movie goes from one point to another. It actually seemed a little more convoluted to me, and there were parts of it where I found myself dosing off. Still, it was enjoyable and a worthy sequel.

The second one, and the better one, was Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I typically like David Fincher movies and this one wasn't too different. I haven't read the book or seen the original, but I enjoyed this one even though I wonder if it could have been shortaned. The end felt long and I was starting to wonder if the movie was ever going to end. Really liked Craig here (The more I see him the more I like him) and Rooney was fantastic as the girl. I could actually see her being nominated if there is a nomination to be had for this movie. I'm not sure if I would rank it as the best movie of the year, but I really liked it.

And with that, the original reason I started this thread was to answer the question, what were the top 5 movies you saw this year. Well, according to my grades (And just talking 2011 films here) I would rank them as:

1. Bridesmaids
2. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
3. Super 8 (The underrated movie of the year?)
4. Captain America: The First Avenger
5. Moneyball

I probably should have seen more movies this year, but there you go.
