Adventures in Movie Watching 2011

Right so, better late than never, I hope, here is my pick of the movies-what-I-saw that were made in 2011 or at least released in Irish cinemas in 2011 (so that's bloody 117 films then, roughly...) Before I begin here's the previous winners of the prestigious "amawaster's film of the year award": 2010 - Inception - dir. Christopher Nolan 2009 - A Serious Man - dir. Joel & Ethan Coen 2008 - The Dark Knight - dir. Christopher Nolan 2007 - The Darjeeling Limited - dir. Wes Anderson 21 - Red State - dir. Kevin Smith Okay, I'll admit I was worried when the guy I love because he bases entire movies around dick jokes decided to make a horror movie based around Christian extremists, but in the end my doubts were proved unjustified.

My 30 favourite albums from 2011 [10 - 1]

My 30 favourite albums from 2011 [10 - 1]

....and now the top ten: 10.  Mayer Hawthorne  - How Do You Do? (Universal) Former Stones Throw alumnus, Mayer Hawthorne is the funkiest white boy going and last year signed to Universal and released the great album that is "How Do You Do?" which features none other than Snoop Dogg on "Can't Stop", if you need more of a reason to listen I can confirm that every song's a winner but none more so than "A Long Time" where he manages to recount the history and all that was great of his hometown Detroit. - fave track:  A Long Time 9.  Beirut -  The Rip Tide ( Pompeii Records ) Zach Condon returned this year and managed to combine everything from Beirut's musical past and turn them into something that sounded new and fresh and a must-listen-to album. "East Harlem" and "Santa Fe" are reasons enough for buying this. - fave track:  Santa Fe 8.  Stevie Jackson - (I Can't Get No) Stevie Jackson ( Banchory ) So for th
