Since I am part Chinese, our new year was actually on the 23rd January 2012. So I consider movies that I have watched before that date to be from last year.
Best movie was "Machine Gun Preacher". Showed me how this guy lost his faith and his humanity was able to rise up again. In the process, he was able to help the orphaned children in Africa and was able to build an orphanage. It also showed me the atrocities that are happening over there and tugged my heart strings hard.
