MediaStinger: "2011′s best surprises raised eyebrows in two different manners. Sometimes it was the way a revitalizing reboot turned a flagging franchise around, corrected the ship’s course, and steered it towards a brighter future."
Great list minus Fright Night. Warrior was probably the biggest out of nowhere surprise, with Apes a very close second.
x men first class was surprisingly good. the biggest surprise since the last 2 x men movies were mediocre at best.
Matthew Vaughn directed Xmen: First Class. Matthew Vaughn. How could it POSSIBLY have been a bad movie?!?
