Although the Academy is being particularly offensive with their nominations this year, 2011 has made the atrocity of 2010 seem like a bad dream. There were twenty to thirty films in 2011 that I wouldn't yell at someone for including in their best of the year list. Either I'm growing as a person (I'm not), or 2011 was a pretty good year. So, brace yourself, this is going to be a long entry. This list, as always, does not include documentaries. Let's start with some honorable mentions/films of note.
