So, 2012 was really the year of action movies. I love chick flicks, but there weren’t many worth mentioning this year (maybe Salmon Fishing in the Yemen or One For the Money, but they didn’t make it into my top ten). Here’s my top ten list, which are in no particular order (and bear in mind that there are many movies from this year I haven’t seen yet):
The Avengers-Robert Downey Jr + Chris Evans + Joss Whedon + Mark Ruffalo + Chris Hemsworth = Total and complete awesomeness!
The Dark Knight Rises-This movie blew my mind. Anne Hathaway was amazing.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey-I love Martin Freeman. I can’t wait for some Benedict Cumberbatch and Lee Pace in the next ones.
Les Miserables-I love music and I love Hugh Jackman. I was kind of blown away by the singing and acting in this movie. I anticipated being disappointed, but I wasn’t.
Brave-I have been told I am Merida, but that’s mostly just for my crazy, curly red hair.
Wreck-It Ralph-I thought I would hate this movie, but it just wasn’t to be. Loved it!
Pitch Perfect-With a little less puking and a little less sex-talk, this movie would have been just about perfect. Like I said, I love music.
The Hunger Games-I’m so glad they downplayed the violence. Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson were great.
People Like Us-I know that this wasn’t a super popular movie, but I quite enjoyed it. Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks were completely believable as siblings.
The Life of Pi-This movie was amazing. I don’t know if I will ever watch it again because it took such an emotional toll on me. I mean, a girl can only cry so much.
