2010 first runner-up. Always a fan of the underdog story this film stands out in fine fashion. Christian Bale slightly outshines Walhberg, but Mark holds his own.

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
A mysterious Hollywood stuntman and mechanic moonlights as a getaway driver and finds himself in trouble when he helps out his neighbor.
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
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.

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.
