In the end, perhaps you can look at 'Warrior' as the canary in the coal mine for 2011. The exceptionally reviewed fighting drama about two estranged brothers, their alcoholic father and ultimate fighting was a major box-office disappointment upon its release in September, but judging from how the last three months have played out, that was just par for the coming course. Movie attendance in 2011 is off by 4 percent from last year, and -- despite some highs this summer ('Harry Potter,' 'Bridesmaids,' 'Transformers') -- most of the fall schedule was undercooked financially ('The Muppets,' 'Sherlock Holmes,' 'New Year's Eve'). If you ignored 'Warrior' like millions of other people, however, there's some hope: the film is out on DVD and Blu-ray now, meaning you can catch up on what could be the best film you didn't see this year. Ahead, 8 reasons why you should give 'Warrior' a chance from the comfort of your own couch.
