    From Bloody Murders To Bridesmaid Speeches: The 25 Best Movie Moments Of 2011

    The great Howard Hawks once famously said that what makes a good film is "three great scenes, and no bad ones." While we'd argue that that's not an absolute hard-and-fast rule, he wasn't far off. With 2011 providing a number of above-average films, there've been plenty of m...

    Melancholia, directed by Lars von Trier and starring Kirsten Dunst
