Too Much To Watch - Movie Edition

Writing up a list of all the TV I was falling behind on was pretty helpful in getting me caught up, so I figured it would help if I went into the last two months of the year with a list for movies. I'm about at the same point I was at last year, having seen around forty movies from 2011. The following is about sixty more titles I'd like to see, and the list will almost certainly get longer before it gets much shorter. Foreign films, for instance, are always harder to get a good bead on.

For ease of reading, I've broken the list down into a couple of categories:

The Titles I'm Actually Pretty Excited About

Tucker & Dale vs Evil
We Have to Talk About Kevin
Take Shelter
The Sleeping Beauty (Catherine Breillat)
Martha Marcy May Marlene
The Artist
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
A Dangerous Method
The Turin Horse

Currently in Theaters But, Will Be Available in a Redbox in Six Months

Real Steel
The Ides of March
In Time
Puss in Boots
The Rum Diary
Tower Heist

I Like the Director, But I'm Not Sure About This

The Skin I Live In (Pedro Almodovar)
J. Edgar (Clint Eastwood)
The Descendants (Alexander Payne)
War Horse (Steven Spielberg)
Carnage (Roman Polanski)
Young Adult (Jason Reitman)
Hugo (Martin Scorsese)
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (David Fincher)
We Bought a Zoo (Cameron Crowe)

The Help (Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer)
My Week With Marilyn (Michelle Williams)
Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close)
The Lady (Michelle Yeoh)
Oranges and Sunshine (Emily Watson)
