Retro Review: My Favorite Entries of 2011

 As I did last year, I'm going to look back at a few pieces I really enjoyed writing in the past year. When you put out as much material as the Cap'n does, the "overload" factor tends to push essays and reviews to the side. It's true that 2/7ths of the week is devoted to Video Daily Doubles and Trailer Sundays, but since I switched over to "Retro Reviews" and not "From the Vaults," Tuesdays have been devoted to looking back with material that didn't exist previously. There's a lot to dig through, even as my schedule grew more hectic and I couldn't publish as consistently a body of work as I would have liked to.

 Here are a dozen or so pieces from 2011 that I thought worked. I liked them, had fun writing them, and am happy to include them in the Blogorium If you've read them before, I hope you have fun revisiting. If you haven't, I hope you take the time to check them out and are as pleased as I was.
