The following list contains spoilers for films from 2011.
It’s time for the first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017! I’m still getting through the best heroes of this decade, and we’ve reached 2011. Do note that these characters aren’t solely ranked on how heroic their actions are. Also, some heroes may not be traditional heroes. Without further ado, here are the top ten movie heroes of 2011.
The following is a quick review of Swiss Army Man – Directed by Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert.
Swiss Army Man follows Hank (played by Paul Dano), a man marooned on a small island, who has lost the will to live. At the start of the film, we find him as he is about to hang himself. But, out of the blue, he sees that a corpse has washed up on the beach. As he tries to resuscitate the body, he notices that the corpse is farting. Soon, he uses the farting corpse (played by Daniel Radcliffe) as a jet ski. Continue reading “REVIEW: Swiss Army Man (2016)”→
We’ve reached the end of this week’s event series of posts: Harry Potter Week. I’ve reviewed every single Harry Potter film, and I’m now ready to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them when it gets its theatrical release next month.
But before I do that, I want to end this Harry Potter Week with a solid series finale. Today, I’m ranking the top 10 characters from the Harry Potter series of films released between 2001 and 2011. Now, don’t worry about the three protagonists finishing one, two, and three – that’s not happening. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 characters from Harry Potter.

The following is a spoiler-filled review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two.
In 2004, The Lord of the Rings film series was recognized at the Academy Awards in a big way. The Return of the King was nominated for eleven Oscars, and it, somehow, managed to win every single award it was nominated for. That was a big deal. It was a big moment for the Oscars, the Tolkien films, and all genre films.
In 2011, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two was released. The Academy, however, chose not to recognize the Harry Potter film series in the same way. That is a shame. Because the Harry Potter film series actually ended on such a high note that it deserved a similar treatment. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two is fantastic.

The following is a spoiler-filled retro review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Severus Snape (played by Alan Rickman) makes an unbreakable vow with Narcissa Malfoy (played by Helen McCrory) to protect Draco (played by Tom Felton), and fulfill his mission if Draco is unsuccessful. At Hogwarts, Harry (played by Daniel Radcliffe) finds a mysterious textbook with helpful notes that used to belong to someone known as the Half-Blood Prince.

The following is a spoiler-filled retro review of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
After Cuarón’s excellent Prisoner of Azkaban, the Mexican film director left the franchise. The next man up, so to speak, was film director Mike Newell – known for Donnie Brasco & Four Weddings and a Funeral. Newell made a surprisingly fun film, considering Goblet of Fire was the first Harry Potter film to be rated PG-13. Continue reading “RETRO REVIEW: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)”→
