The Mike Krenek Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Films Mike Krenek Enjoyed

Over the next few days, I’ll be rolling out the Mike Krenek’s 2011 Mike Krenek Awards (stylized as MK2k11MKA). Who needs the Oscars/Emmys/Tonys/Grammys/AMAs/Source Awards/Blockbuster Entertainment Awards when you have a non-credible radio show hosts’ picks for the Best Of everything. My favorite film of 2011 is after the jump.

I’m different than most people who give out awards like this. Usually “Best Film of…” is reserved for movies with breathtaking cinematography, sweeping scores, and Oscar-worthy performances. However, I go to the movies to be entertained. So my award goes to the legit rebooting of one of my favorite comic book film franchises, X-Men: First Class.

After the abysmal X3, I had a good deal of fear heading into this bad boy, but I was quite surprised by its legitness. Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy breath serious life into comic-dom’s best “frenemies”, Erik “Magneto” Lensherr and Professor Charles Xavier, while Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawerence made me care deeply about Beast and Mystique respectively; a pair of characters I’ve always felt a good deal of “ehhh” for. However, director Matthew Vaughn’s greatest achievement is making me not feel real rage every time my least favorite actor of all-time (Kevin Bacon) is on-screen. While “First Class” performed well at the box office, I feel as though it is already underrated amongst its superhero film peers. However, it can no longer be considered as such. While it may be shut out at this year’s Academy Awards, everyone involved in this fine film can feel real pride today, as they have won America’s most prestigious film-making award available…The Mike Krenek Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Films Mike Krenek Enjoyed.
