Hi again, like last year I’m doing a top 10 list of what I think are the best films of 2012, like in the past I’ll put it in a 10 - 1 order and also I’ll post it with a image and some words on why I loved the film, so here are they.
10) The Grey
Joe Carnahan is a director that I like for his entertaining movies like Smokin’ Aces and The A Team but after watching this impressive film I have to say that I fuckin’ respect the guy and I have to follow from now on.
9) Beasts Of The Southern Wild
Considered by many websites as the most “overrated” film of the year, I thought that it’s not overrated because it totally deserves it’s praise, it’s like watching a B movie Disney version of The Tree Of Life which I totally love.
Many people considered Quantum of Solace a big disappointment after the magnificent Casino Royale but I thought it was kind of good, not great but Okayish, so for me Skyfall represented a level up for the 007 franchise, the cinematography was freakin’ amazing, the performances where incredible and the last act wow! it really surprised me.
After The Town I had really high expectations for the next Ben Affleck directed flick and man the guy didn’t disappoint, here is a film in the style of a classic 70’s thriller, perfectly written and directed.
6) Safety Not Guaranteed
Watched this little but amazing film a few days ago, I didn’t expect much but that ended up better for me because the result was really good, the messages, the story it makes you feel so good, I though Beats Of The Southern Wild was the “feel good” film of the year but not, this one is.
5) The Dark Knight Rises
The conclusion of The Caped Crusader trilogy by Christopher Nolan finished with a bang and what a bang, Nolan has bring the perfect trilogy of all time in my opinion and I have watched The Godfather trilogy.
Almost 2 years ago I watched Rian Johnson’s Brick for the first time and I was surprised by it’s originality and style so after I heard that he was going to make a sci-fi film with JGL I was really exited with high expectations and those expectations were surpassed by his new and outstanding film.
3) Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino has finally made a western and despite losing his beloved and really talented editor he has bring us one the year best films and one of the year best acting ensembles, every actor shines in the film and Tarantino’s direction is really passionate here that it keeps with you.
2) The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
When I watched the trailer of this film I thought that it was going to be average teen flick but it was all the opposite, it’s dark, real and really nostalgic and I have also read the book and I can really say that the auger knew how to handle this amazing film adaptation.
And we finally come to the end of the list, many of you are gonna say that I’m really crazy for putting this almost perfect film as the best film 2012 but hey this is my list, Riddley Scott has directed once again another amazing film, with it’s questions, doubts, performances, sequences and jaw dropping visuals it’s a film that deserves a spot between the best sci-fi films of all time.
Honorable mentions: Lincoln, Flight, The Amazing Spider-Man, Chronicle, The Hunger Games, The Avengers.
