Best of 2011: Britt Hayes’ Top Films

Putting together a top ten list wasn’t easy. There are so many films I want to include but can’t, and yet I’ll still give the few that didn’t quite make the cut honorable mention at the bottom of this page. 2011 has been a fantastic year for film, and while I look at this list [...]

Best of 2011: Tess Drahman’s 5 Magical Movies

1. BRIDESMAIDS               What can be said that hasn’t been said before? This is a great comedy film. It’s not a great WOMAN comedy film, it’s great because the people in it are great. It might not be the most hilarious movie ever made, and it certainly has it [...]

Best of 2011: Hannah Angst’s Necessary TV Shows

  10) FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS While the exemplary acting and writing are what makes this show great- maybe one of the best, it’s the characters that made the last season such a joy. Through five seasons we loved the Taylors and the people that populate their lives and seeing them go in such a beautiful [...]

Best of 2011: Allison Loring’s Top Films

Now that I have looked over the music in the films of 2011, it is time to turn attention to the films themselves. And yes, these lists are different since movies can certainly have fantastic music (the TWILIGHT franchise proves this year after year) while the films themselves are not always the best (I’ll never [...]

It is the time of year when we look back at all the movies that came out in 2011 and I hone in on their accompanying soundtracks and scores to highlight my top picks of the year. It’s been quite the year in film and the various scores and soundtracks that have created their various [...]

Best of 2011: Kate Erbland’s Top Films

There’s really no good way to introduce an end-of-year top ten list – shouldn’t the list speak for itself? Well, maybe. 2011 was, as is becoming all too commonplace at the cineplex, dominated by big franchises, giant superhero flicks, and 3D treatments for films that were hard to swallow even in 2D. But 2011 also [...]

Best of 2011: Mikela Floyd’s Top TV Shows

For me, 2011 was a weird year in television. Several shows that previously held my attention so aptly no longer interest me (I’m looking at you, GLEE, DEXTER, and PARENTHOOD), and my traditionally network drama-filled DVR is now dominated primarily by British TV and comedies. I’m not sure quite what happened – maybe my inner [...]

Best of 2011: Sexiest Bad Boys Edition

  I’ve made it no secret that I have a thing for damaged and naughty men here at Reel Vixen. From my love of Jesse Pinkman of BREAKING BAD to my determination to one day wed Jean-Ralphio of PARKS AND RECREATION, it’s very clear that I have issues. But what of the bad boys of [...]

Best of 2011: Top 5 Adam Scott Moments

As much as it was The Year of Gosling, honorable mention must be made to another actor – Mr. Adam Scott. The man has been endlessly entertaining (and charming) on Parks and Rec as Leslie’s former adversary turned love interest (Ben Wyatt) and has added just the right amount of humor to the films and webisodes [...]
