I can't give you my Top 10 favorite movies of the year. I can give you Nos. 2, 4, 6, 8, 16 or even 32. With a tip of the hat to college basketball's March Madness, here's my second annual movie bracket.Click on the image to the right to enlarge the bracket.
The elite eight, alphabetically, are Albert Nobbs, The Artist, Bridesmaids, The Descendants, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Margin Call, Midnight in Paris and Shame.
Ultimately, I came up with The Artist and Midnight in Paris as my two top films. The best of the best? The Artist, opening in Boise on Jan. 20, 2012. No movie gave me more joy, which was in pretty short supply in 2011.
