Ted’s Top Movies of 2011

As longtime readers of my blog know, I rate every movie I see according to the DTMTBD scale: how it compares to Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, which I established twenty years ago as the baseline for all films. Better than Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter‘s Dead means the movie was a rewarding experience; worse means you wasted your time. About as good as means it all depends on the popcorn.

Top Ten
1 – Cave of Forgotten Dreams
2 – Rise of the Planet of the Apes
3 – War Horse
4 – Young Adult
5 – A Dangerous Method
6 – 50/50
7 – The Artist
8 – Attack the Block
9 – Source Code
10 – Fast Five
