MY 2011 MOVIE JOURNAL : Ratings of Movies I’ve Watched in 2011

Apa sih gunanya rating untuk sebuah review film? Jawabnya, tergantung. Salah, jelas tidak. Karena review-review yang ada, mau dari kritikus paling terkenal di seluruh dunia sampai sekedar jadi hobby saja pun, sekali waktu bisa jadi guide bagi yang berselera dan berpandangan sama. Namun sebaiknya jangan melihat hanya dari rating tanpa tahu dimana letak poin mereka memberikan rating itu, karena sebuah review, dengan argumen yang benar sekali pun, bisa jadi sangat subjektif. Ini sebenarnya yang jauh lebih perlu dari sebuah review film, ketimbang hanya rating tanpa alasan. The rest, adalah informasi untuk mendapat gambaran demi ekspektasi terhadap pilihan tontonan Anda. Personally, for me, saya lebih memilih tujuan yang terakhir ini untuk menuangkan sebuah passion sejak lama pada penulisan review atau resensi. That’s why, meski ada sebagian yang menyarankan, khusus buat review per judul dalam blog ini, I still choose not to judge by rating the movies. So this list too, is just a simplest guide to share, from movies I watched all through this year, which I noted every titles in my ‘Movie Journal’ (see pics). Some might be missed, incl. still coming soon titles in Indonesian theatres. Sebagian ada yang sudah di-review secara lengkap di blog ini, sebagian lagi berupa one or two line short reviews atau yang tertinggal bisa dilihat di profil gomiso saya . And theseabout 350 movies on the list, mostly had original release date in each own country from December 2010-December 2011. Happy New Year & Enjoy!
