Films I have not seen this year (shame on me)

I love going to the cinema, but there have been a few films I have missed out on this year. Mainly for being too girly for my friends. And probably because I used up four of those times seeing the final Harry Potter film (it’s the last one damn you!).
 
Have you seen any of these?
 
Bridesmaids

I really wanted to see this as it looked so funny. If I saw my mum more just the two of us, I would have seen it with her. She dragged my dad to see it and he wasn’t impressed, lol. I love comedy films and there aren’t enough good ones where all the main characters are female. 
 
One Day

I think apart from no one wanting to see this with me, the reason I did not see this was because I know how it ends and it is not particularly cheerful. I read the book and really liked it until the end where I got angry at the author. 
 
But I would be interested to see how they handled the timescale of the story in the film in terms of fashion and how the actors age. I heard the film was not that great though. Any thoughts?
 
The Help

I had the book in my hands I read the first couple of pages but I lent the book to my teenage cousin because she said it looked good and she doesn’t read too much. I like to know that young people are still reading so I do my part in encouraging it. 
 
I’m really interested to see the film because I won’t be getting the book back for a while because I think my mum has it now and she doesn’t live in the UK. It looks like an interesting story and I really want to see how Emma Stone does in her role since all I’ve seen her in are comedies. 
 
My week with Marilyn

I know this is still in the cinema but I doubt I’ll get to see it before it comes out on DVD. Being a lover of old black and white films and an owner of Some Like It Hot (if you are a comedy or marilyn fan, you MUST see this), I want to see how they portray Marilyn in this film. Can’t really put it into words why exactly but I just really want to see this film. Have you seen it yet? What did you think of it?
 
How has 2011 been for the cinema do you think?
