Spencer and I see at least one movie each week at a movie theater, NOT on DVD. It’s one of the things we really enjoy in life, especially since we usually dine at a favorite restaurant either before or after the show.
In fact, if I weren’t a food-and-wine professional, I may well have been a movie critic.
So here are out top movies of 2011. We rate each movie from 0 to 5 stars. Zero is a movie without a plot or a really bad (unsatisfying) ending. Five is a world-class, totally unique, unexpected experience.
We’ve given only a handful of five-star ratings since we started cataloging and rating our movies in 1986 (!).
Each of the movies below garnered a four-star rating. Nothing won five stars in 2011.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Empire of Silver
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Beginning of the New Revolution
Midnight in Paris
