The Artist: it won Best Picture at the Oscars, but most importantly, it bucked the idea that artists--specifically film makers, should not be a part of the capitalist system. Making the case that the innovations of "talkie" films was for the best, in spite of some actors from the silent era being unemployed, The Artist successfully bonds art to the economy for the good of the industry and the individuals (the country as well).
Mirror, Mirror, Battleship, The Chernobyl Diaries, Men In Black III, Gone, Man On a Ledge, John Carter, The Grey, A Better Life, The Raven Moneyball, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (post is forthcoming), Act Of Valor, Lockout.

This is a rare time when I will bow to pressure from others, but everyone insists that The Ides Of March is a pro-Democrat film, so I list it here, even thought I can't (upon examination of it) see how, in any way, it supports the Democrats because of the issues of abortion, the trade unions, the affairs with the interns, etc.

Both GI Joe Retaliation and Jack the Giant Killer have been moved to release next year; pity, they won't be nearly as relevant. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will most likely be a pro-socialist film. The Amazing Spider Man... I can't say, but if I had to wager a bet, it would be that it will be pro-socialist, even though the Obama administration wouldn't bail me out for the faulty gamble I took but I still have to pay my tax dollars to bail out Wall Street. Prometheus, being released next week will probably be a lot like Avatar, watered-down and liberal.
The big splash still to be made is The Dark Knight Rises.
We'll soon find out.
