William Hurt and Holly Hunter were born today. They both starred in Broadcast News if you want to seem them work together (here’s a Flickchart review of the film). Or, you can try this Hurt vs. Hunter double feature:
William Hurt made his motion picture debut with Altered States. It comes from the mind of Ken Russell, who is known for his outlandish style.

2011 has drawn to a close, and instead of doing a typical year-end review of movies, I thought I would do one with a Flickchart twist. I will take pairs of movies that I have seen throughout the year, link them thematically together, and square them off against each other. So without any further ado, let the battles begin with a match-up between the two worst superhero movies of the year.
Over 115,000 film fans worldwide have been adding all the movies they’ve seen from the year onto their Flickcharts and pitting them head-to-head against the best movies of all time. The following list is the product of those rankings – generating a combined list of the best movies of 2011 that are ranked the highest by each and every Flickchart user.
Don’t forget too that once you’re there, you can further filter the list to get the best of 2011 combined with any of your favorite actors, directors, genres, and franchises. If they seem in need of rearrangement, you can also rank any of these combinations and make sure the 2011 films you’ve seen are in just the right order on your list. Remember, if you watched and ranked these movies on your Flickchart, you helped to create this list! The higher your favorites of 2011 are on your list, the more you’ll be influencing their positions. If you haven’t yet, be sure to rank your favorites of 2011 to make changes to this list for the future!
You can expect some major new features to arrive early in 2012, so keep your eyes peeled for some amazing things yet to come for Flickchart!
Without further adieu – out of 807 total movies released this year – here is your Top 20 of 2011:
