The final week of 2011 has arrived, meaning it's time to reflect on the year that was. From the forgotten Nicolas Cage film 'Season of the Witch' that kicked things off in January to 'The Iron Lady,' which will close out December in limited release on Friday, 2011 was filled with cinematic delights ('Harry Potter,' 'Bridesmaids' and 'Hugo' to name three) as well as some notable busts (sorry, 'Sucker Punch'). Ahead, a look at the best movies, performances, trailers and even dogs from 2011.
