Here are my top movies for 2012.
Every moment of the almost 3 hour Django was not only engrossing but perfect.
I can’t recommend this enough and I can’t wait to see it again and again and again.
It has entertained me just as much in 2D at home as it did in the theatre.
Carl Urban was born to play Judge Dredd and I would LOVE if this got a sequel which is currently doubtful.
So many comedies this year were just trying to be shocking, like Ted or That’s my Boy. This movie was a solid film. Great cast engaging plot and well acted.
Completely changed my mind about Channing Tatum whom I didn’t really care for until this film and his hosting of SNL.
Javier Bardem was the perfect Bond villain. The cinematography was mind numbingly beautiful as well. I was blown away by 007 this time around.
I hope Ben Affleck gets an Oscar for this film. Brilliant.
A few honorable mentions. John Carter, Looper, the Grey, Machine Gun Preacher and Sleep Tight.
Movies like Looper as good as they are kind of loose the luster after you know the twists and the ending.
As much fun as John Carter was I don’t find myself going back to it often.
The Grey is a bit of a downer. Machine Gun Preacher is inspirational but how often are you in the mood for that. Seems like if I sit down to watch a movie at home this year I just want fun popcorn films.
Sleep Tight is a Spanish movie and it is super creepy. Thing will haunt you for days. It really is a must watch if you don’t mind subtitles. I think that is what kept it out of my top ten. It’s not that I don’t like subtitles but rewatchability isn’t there for me because often times I am working when I watch a movie at home. Trust me though it is definitely worth the watch.
