Waitin' on a Sunny Day in 2011

As 2011 draws to a close, I thought it would be fun to look back on Waitin' on a Sunny Day's 2011. Or, perhaps more fittingly, my 2011. I watched a grand total of 369 films this year, watched 43 seasons of tv series (it seems a lot, but most of them where British shows which means the seasons are a lot shorter ;D), made some amazing friends through classic film, met one of my best classic film buddies in real life, and had a ridiculous amount of fun posting on here about all things classic! So, without further ado, I give you my 2011 in review!

My Favourite New-To-Me Films of 2011

January: Don't Bother to Knock (1952) & Mad About Men (1954)
February: The Misfits (1961) & Stand By Me (1986)
March: I Remember Mama (1948) & Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)
April: Splendor in the Grass (1961) & The King's Speech (2011) 
May: Niagara (1953) & The Virgin Suicides (1999).
June: To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) & Letters from Iwo Jima (2006)
July: The Great Dictator (1940) & Johnny Belinda (1948)
August: Possessed (1947) & The Godfather (1972)
September: These Three (1936)
October: Walk the Line (2005)
November: The Princess Comes Across (1936) & A Woman of Distinction (1950)
December: The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944) & The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969)

My Favourite TV Series of 2011

I watched so many incredible TV series this year including Matador (1978-1982), The Golden Girls (1985-1992), and House (2004-), but when it came down to it, however much I love those three shows, none of them could surpass the emotional roller coaster that is Band of Brothers. Do yourself a favour and watch it!

I could go on forever listing favourites, but these are the three most important categories pertaining to this blog so I'll stop there. I honestly can't believe the year is almost over; it only seems like yesterday that I was posting my 2011 film-related New Year's resolutions on here (make sure you check back in a day or two to see how many of those I kept ;D). I can't think of anything profound to say so I'm just going to wish you all a very wonderful New Year and I'll see you at the other side!
