Movies that Moved in 2011: Tired of Previews Looks Back

BlogHer Original Post

This year, I have been lucky enough to dig deep into the BlogHer-o-sphere and get to know some of the incredible women who lend their voices to the world of Entertainment writing. One of those ladies? Katy of Tired of Previews, who has gone from fan to bona fide movie critic while finding her calling, and her own brand of reviewing which comes free of spoilers.

Here, Katy links up some of the films which moved her this year - in no particular order:

Expanding your horizons on any subject matter is always a treat and filled with surprises. Here are a few of the "surprise" films that I was fortunate enough to view this past year:

The Escapist - The discovery of a certain actor who is now one of my favorites - Brian Cox
(I ended up watching The Good Heart and Red because of this movie and he was fantastic in both)
Never Let Me Go - One of the most profound movies I've ever watched.
127 Hours - Best acting I have seen on film to date.
Midnight in Paris - A treat through and through. I will own this movie.
Flashbacks of a Fool - It affected me and that's all I will say about that.
Fright Night - Not so much for the movie but the experience was one I will never forget.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan - My first foreign film review.
The Perfect Host - One of the biggest surprises so far.
Love - A great movie by a first time director. I enjoy discovering newcomers to this industry now.
