My Most Anticipated List 2011by DigitalRitual | created - 01 Feb 2011 | updated - 18 Sep 2011 | Public
Less than complete, and not solely a 2011 list, but also films that I missed and will be coming to DVD in 2011. There seems to be more coming out this year that I'm interested in than I can remember in recent years. Hopefully some of these live up to expectations.
