Movie fans had much to be happy about in 2011. Mega-stars like Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock all had at least one major release. The final 'Harry Potter' installment debuted -- and didn't disappoint. And most importantly, 'The Muppets' returned to the big screen for the first time in 12 years!

Canadian movie aficionados -- and fans of Canadian movie stars -- also had a lot to appreciate in 2011. Our fair country produced a wide collection of great flicks this year, ranging from heart-wrenching ('Take This Waltz') to, well, gut-spilling ('Hobo With a Shotgun'). Ah, diversity.
