40 Movies (2011) I wish I could have seen in theaters

And finally, to wrap up in time for the new year, here’s a list of movies that came out this year where I had been intrigued by the trailer, but either I didn’t have the time, the money to spend, or the movie was in limited release and I had no way of getting to one of those theaters.  In some rare instances, the movies I didn’t see looked a little too violent for my personal preferences, and I probably won’t get around to trying them until they become available via stream and I find myself with absolutely nothing else to watch.

Since there are so many movies I didn’t go to the trouble in getting any pictures, but I did order them by release date.  Movies with a * next to them means that I thought that the movie looked like it would be terrible, but I couldn’t help but feel a little curious anyways (just in case my intuition is wrong, and I admit it sometimes is).
