Welcome to Part 2 of my 2011 movie rankings. If you need to catch up on 11-25 here is a link. As some of you know I absolutely love ranking things, so I’m sure ranking various film related topics will become a bit of a recurring theme. Also be sure to check back on Saturday for a special edition of The Imaginarium featuring Joseph Williams as we make our Oscar picks. This is a tradition we have done for many years on Facebook and I’m excited to have a new platform to display who is truly more knowledgable than who. If you would like to submit your picks feel free to do so to email@example.com.

Anyone that beats me on those 10 will be recognized in next week’s post. Submissions must be in by noon on Saturday (or before my picks are posted). May the odds be ever in your favor.
Now let’s get down to the top 10… Read more
