Hope you have seen all the 20 earlier 2011 movies i suggested:). Here are some more 2011 movies i enjoyed:).



The Adventures of Tintin
If you are looking for a nice fun adventure movie,then The Adventures of Tintin is just what you may like:). Here, daring reporter Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock's ancestor.This film is adapted from three original stories by Tintin creator Herge.Tintin fans may feel disappointed as a lot of liberties have been taken by the film’s writers in the process of turning three stories into one script.But what the film gets right is bringing Tintin and the other characters of the book to life in a wonderful way.Tintin,Snowy,the 2 detectives Thomson and Thompson and of course the "blistering barnacles" and "thundering typhoons" curser Captain Haddock:D have been superbly potrayed:).Overall its a very well made entertaining adventure movie with superb special effects especially the chase sequence in the desert which is superbly shot:).

Genre:- Animation, Action, Adventure.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has very good pace:).
My Rating:-









The Hangover Part II
This movie is the sequel to the 2009 released superb comedy movie "The Hangover". Here, two years after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu's wedding. Stu's plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.Unfortunately, this movie fails to live up to the standards of the first movie:(. This movie has nothing new to offer and it feels as if you are watching the first movie again,but without the surprises,which were plenty in the first movie.But still if you just want to watch a movie to have a good time,this is definitely a good watch:).

Genre:- Comedy.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-









Contagion
Contagion is a well made epidemic thriller.This movie is a thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.What works for the movie is its realistic approach to story telling:). You are always on the edge of your seat,watching as the virus travels from person to person and city to city.What also works in favour of the movie,is that such a situation can easily happen in the real world as well,and thus it manages to keep you engaged:). Overall, this is a well made and realistically portrayed epidemic thriller that is worth your time:).

Genre:- Drama, Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-










Tower Heist
Tower heist is a nice fun comedy heist movie:). Here, when a group of hard working guys find out they've fallen victim to a wealthy business man's fraudulent investment operation, they conspire to rob his high-rise residence. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy provide decent laughs:). Overall, this is just a nice fun movie to watch when you are getting bored:). Keep your minds at home and you will enjoy this movie:).




Genre:- Comedy.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-








The Debt
The Debt is a well made espionage thriller:). This movie is about three Mossad agents sent to East Berlin to kidnap a Nazi war criminal.This movie may have a slow pace but it definitely satisfies you with its storytelling and script:). Another reason why this movie works is because of good performances by the entire cast:). Overall, this is a well made war-crimes thriller that is definitely a good watch:).




Genre:- Drama, Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Has a slow pace,but definitely keeps you engaged:).

  6. Hey, Debt seems to be interesting, though I hope its not a typical bad guys vs good guy kind of a storyline...I am for movies like Munich, which has beautiful shades of grey...as the cliche goes - one mans terrorist is another man's freedom fighter...thanks for the nice list...
