2012 Best Movies

 

BEST OF 2012

I still haven’t seen a number of notable films.  No Amour or Holy Motors.  The French film fan in me is very disappointed in himself.  I think there’s too much action in this list but hey, that’s what worked this year.  Argo missed the cut by a hair.  I liked it a lot but it just felt it was too cut and dry in presentation for me.  I’d have loved to have put Ted on here but the last 20 minutes of that movie are a train wreck.  Dredd didn’t make it because The Raid is simply so much crazier.  Listed below are the rest of the years films.

Went for it and missed a little or are just fun efforts

ARGO
TED  
PREMIUM RUSH
DREDD 
LIFE OF PI
KILLER JOE
CLOUD ATLAS 
BERNIE 
THE WOMAN IN BLACK
GET THE GRINGO

Some nice parts, performances or technique but the whole didn’t add up

ANNA KARINENNA
THE HOBBIT: UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
SILVER LINING PLAYBOOK 
JACK REACHER
THE BOURNE LEGACY
THE AVENGERS

Overrated, silly or otherwise a missed opportunity

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
THE MASTER
21 JUMP STREET
CABIN IN THE WOODS
CHRONICLE
SAVAGES
HUNGER GAMES
HAYWIRE
SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Boring, stupid and generally worthless efforts
