2011 Movies – The Final Push

Back in May I posted a list of the movies I wanted to see this year. So far I’ve seen 7 out of the 10 I was shooting for, plus caught up on 2 that I had missed once they came out on DVD. Not too bad. I’m pretty sure I’ve reviewed them all on here after seeing them.

I’ve beat rhythms out with wooden spoons, sticks, pencils, pens, toilet paper tubes, pipe insulation, toy drumsticks, my hands… anything at my disposal. (I actually had to stop doing it so much in my car; the head of my gear shift came off once while driving because . . . → Read More: Drum roll, please!
