2010 film of the year. Original storyline, excellent casting, and a concept that is truly mind-bending, (see what i did there?). Worth every minute.

2011 second runner-up. So after losing to my wife I was forced to sit through this movie, but what a humbling story it was. Highly recommend if you are looking for brownie points. All the actresses did an outstanding job in their respective roles.

5. Drive (I) (2011)

R | 100 min | Crime, Drama

78 Metascore

Director: Nicolas Winding Refn | Stars: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks

Votes: 493,462 | Gross: $35.06M

2011 first runner-up. I was hesitant about this film for several reasons, one being Ryan Gosling, the other being the shear amount of praise it received, I feared it was being over-hyped. But after watching this film it is all i talked about for a week. Gosling as The Driver was truly remarkable, and the supporting cast did a fantastic job as well. My hat is off to the director for the '80s feel he took.

6. Warrior (2011)

PG-13 | 140 min | Drama, Sport

71 Metascore

The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his estranged, older brother.

Director: Gavin O'Connor | Stars: Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Morrison

Votes: 383,107 | Gross: $13.66M

2011 film of the year. Tom Hardy continues to impress me, and this film further amplified that feeling. A story of two brothers putting everything on the line. Definitely a film worth watching more than once. Nick Nolte also impressed me with his role, a solid performance that overshadows anything he has done in the last 10 years, easily.
