2011 is halfway done and even though the prestige flicks are still months away, there are still some pretty good first half movies to talk about. Some favorites from Film Fest DC even got US releases, freeing them to appear on our lists. (Actually, if you haven’t heard of the movie there’s a good chance the Fest is where we saw it.)

2. The Names of Love
3. Kaboom
4. Super 8
5. Just Go With It


1. Source Code
2. Armadillo
3. Kung Fu Panda 2

Claims to have not seen five movies yet this year.


So who is the worst Grouch? Jared for putting Super 8 AND an Adam Sandler comedy on his list? John for being a snob and filling his list with films no one has seen? Adam for listing only loud, big budget action flicks? Or Brian for not even watching movies? Discuss.
