The Movie List 2011

Our ever-expanding ranking of all the year's movies, from best to worst. Find out where this week's releases fit!

By Andrew O'Hehir

Published January 6, 2011 10:01PM (EST)

Welcome to the 2011 edition of The Movie List -- which is now nearly complete!. It's exactly what it sounds like: an ongoing ranking of the year's movies, from No. 1 to No. Yucko. Of course it's subjective and prone to perceptual flaws and chronological bias. In 2010, I wound up rearranging frequently as I re-evaluated or saw movies again. (By popular demand, here's the full and final version of last year's list.)

There's always an element of the ridiculous in any endeavor like this: How do you decide whether a documentary about an artist who became famous years after committing suicide is better or worse than an animated film starring Johnny Depp as a chameleon? Which did I enjoy more: "Winnie the Pooh" or "The Thing"? I think there's a two-part answer to questions like those. First, I ask myself which one I'd rather watch again, tonight. Then I try to think about the perplexing question of enduring value: Which one will I want to watch in five years? Which one would I recommend to my friends, my kids or my mother-in-law?

I'll update at least once a week. New additions are always marked accordingly.
