    • Django Unchained was the best movie of 2012 in my book, I also like Zero Dark Thirty and Life of Pi and can't forget Wreck It Ralph. :)

    • The Dark Knight was the best, also liked Django and Wreck It Ralph.

      Good list mate.

    • Love the list, I would however have Django way up the list. I also at first dismissed "Zero Dark Thirty" but after sitting down and watching it I too would have it on my top ten list. Love it like I said I would move "Django Unchained" right to number one and I would move "Searching for Sugarman" to honorable mention.

    • Trevor I was waiting for your list and once again very impressive, now I have to go and give Zero dark another try as I initially walked out with some others when I saw the torture scenes.

       

      If you watched it all and was that impress to name it your top then maybe I need to watch this right through.

    • I have only seen Life of Pi and Beasts Of The Southern Wild and I loved both of them those others not my type. lolz

    • Well thought the years I value your taste in movies so a few on that list I think now I will give a watch to.

    • For years it's been an annual thing for me to list my Top 10 movies of the year. Here I go again:

       

      MY TOP 10 OF 2012

      1)Zero Dark Thirty -The most fearless of all Best Picture nominees. Completely blew me away.

      2)Silver Linings Playbook - Should have the subtitle Crazy In Love. Or is that Crazies?

      3)Beasts Of The Southern Wild-Environmentalism meets a folks tale. Hushpuppy has to be the best child movie role of this decade so far.

      4)The Life of Pi-Definitely the fantasy movie of the year. Will enchant you the minute you see it.

      5)Argo-A moment of history you know will end on a good note but it makes you forget all that and capture the moment.

      6)Les Miserables-Successfully captures the spirit of the musical. Might make you want to sing along too.

      7)Lincoln-Recaptures a moment of history both with the focus of the man and the politics of the time.

      8)Searching For Sugar Man-A unique documentary about the rock legend we never knew until now. Keeps us in the mystery of what happened to him too.

      9)The Master-Not only captures the essence of the Svengali cult-like leader but one of his worshippers he tries to control. A good success.

      10)Amour-Surprisingly able to portray some hard truths about again and love with beauty. An accomplishment.


      HONORABLE MENTION:

      -Moonrise Kingdom-A story of child love that's very oddball but somehow manages to charm those who see it.

      -Django Unchained-I don't know. I think in another year I would've liked it more because Zero Dark Thirty was more fearless and Lincoln made his slave revenge look like a joke. It made me think Tarantino has a lust over the theme of revenge.

      -The Dark Knight Rises-Is Christopher Nolan possibly the best director of the Batman story ever?

      -The Hunger Games-The thing that separates this from Twilight is that it focuses on the drama of the story rather  than making eye-candy out of the actors. Definitely a winner.

      -Wreck-It Ralph-This has to be the animated movie of the year. Succeeds in entertaining and thrilling us.

       

      OTHER PICKS:

      -Best Popcorn Movie: The Dark Knight Rises

      -Best Animated Film: Wreck-It Ralph

      -Best Foreign-Language Film: Amour

      -Most Morally Redeeming Film: Les Miserables

      -Best Comedy: Ted-C'mon. You have to admit this is the comedy of the year. A story that would normally be cheesy but it took Seth's writing to make it work.

    • I want to see it, looks very action packed and intense.

      Thank you Jeff and a big fan of Zombie movies you are then lad to see it on the first night out. :)

    • June 23, 2013 2:15 PM EDT
    • Enough of these Zombie movies and show already. :P I also think season 4 wil be the end of The Walking Dead people are getting bored now. :P

    • June 23, 2013 1:56 PM EDT
    • I want to see it, the trailer is loaded with excitement...but then again all trailers are. lol

    • June 23, 2013 1:42 PM EDT
    • I want to see it mate, but if you say it is not like Walking Dead because of the rating then thats no good.

    • June 23, 2013 1:29 PM EDT
    • I saw it last night on it's opening here and it was cool, lots of action and wlel kinda scary it makes oyu feel like anxious in some parts.

      If you are worried about blood and stuff there is like none, The walkinfg Dead is way more gory.

      I think if you going to see that you are not gonna that is why it is only PG.

       

      Well I hope you like it. :)

    • Whatever the situation it's out of the Top 10 now.

    • June 21, 2013 5:28 PM EDT
    • Yes it has fallen off the map, I think if Europe listens to the bad reviews here it will also flop overseas.

    • What do I know but I don't think Jaden Smith is that bad, what I think is he needs to go to auditions and actually win roles and his dad needs to keep creating these supposedly big draw roles for him and let him develop on his own as an actor.
      He is not ready to carry a film like "After Earth" on his own, he needs good supporting roles.
      That is the reason the film failed.

      That heavy hammering you are hearing is the final nails being driven into the coffin of M Night Shyamalan’s career as a Hollywood director and Will Smith as a box office draw.

      The light tapping is nails be driven into Jaden Smith scoring any roles besides those backed and developed by daddy, let him try auditioning to actually won a role.

    • I hated it, really boring no wonder it is such a flop here and in Canada.

    • June 10, 2013 8:34 PM EDT
    • Harsh, but I can't with a certainty disagree.

    • Whatever. I pretty much lost all faith in Night Shyamalan. He had a good chance at being the next big director but he's blown it these past ten years.

    • June 9, 2013 11:25 AM EDT
    • LOL the movie sucks dude it has nothing to do with hating Jaden Smith, the movie is crap.

    • June 8, 2013 8:21 PM EDT
    • Gosh just leave the kid alone, I dont like movies like that so I wont watch it anyways.

    • If you feel so positive about a wretched film like After Earth then you are obviously a studio plant.
      The film is wretched, it is geck it is badly acted by Jaden Smith, and I do not hate Jaden but I hate when  no-talents with powerful families get starring roles in major films, while gifted actors wait tables. and trug from audition to audition.
      I am tired of Will Smith creating and backing films so he can showcase his son, the boy might be a nice kid but he CAN"T ACT.

      The movie is getting a ton of hate from critics but look I was not blow away but it was ok I was entertained.

      The story is very generic not much to it travel from point one location to another and retrieve and object while facing danger along the way. The acting is not horrendous, Jaden is ok physically I find he has problems with line delivery, Will was very good in this with what he had to do.

      The production is very nice and the score is awesome, I would rate the movie 5 of 10, people this is not Plan 9 from Outer space as some critics would lead you to believe this is an ok film not mind blowing but ok.

      I am no expert but as I said I was entertained I did not walked out and neither did anyone in my viewing audience, that being said I think “Oblivion” is a better film.

    • My review for After Earth is MEH nothing special but I watrched it all and was not blown away or anything but it was not like the worst movie ever.
