The pick of the 2012 films I have seen. Remember this is the list of films I have seen at the cinema! 2012 for me seemed to be a very strange year for film, as I don’t feel like I managed to see many films during the year or at the very least missed loads of films. But I will try to give reasons why the 10 films which are in this list have made the list!
10. Life of Pi – Review
Visually stunning and consuming throughout, you are never really sure what is going to happen next and seeing amazing scenes on the screen. I wasn’t really expecting to like this film as much as I did but think it really does have something very special about it.
9. The Woman in Black – Review
The film adaptation of a very successful stage show and Daniel Radcliffe showing that he can do so much more than being Harry Potter. An impressive performance and an impressive film with many twists and times to jump.
8. The Amazing Spider-Man – Review
I am probably the most surprised to see a Spider-Man film on my top 10 films of the year list but I really enjoyed this reboot and thought it was very easy to watch. Andrew Garfield really does bring something brilliant to the role and the story was good to watch. Much better than the previous Spider-Man films in my opinion.
7. The Hunger Games – Review
The next big trilogy based on books to hit the cinemas and this being the first part was very impressive. Teenagers being taken from the districts they live in and chosen to take part in the hunger games, where they must battle for survival and pretty much be the last one standing. Good adaptation of the book!
6. The Avengers – Review
Let’s face it everything Marvel films have done in the past few years have built up to this film and they did not leave us disappointing in this fantastic comic book film. Our favorite superheroes join forces to save the world together. What’s not to love?
5. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – Review
I have pretty much been waiting for The Hobbit since Lord of the Rings finished, so to take a step back to Middle Earth was something I enjoyed very much. I know this film has its flaws but I still loved being back in Middle Earth and enjoyed this film. Cannot wait for the next two parts as it is only going to get better.
4. The Dark Knight Rises – Review
The epic conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga and what a way to finish it! You have to admit that following The Dark Knight was always going to be an impossible task, but this film is just incredible. New characters who really do the series proud, an epic ending!
3. Silver Linings Playbook – Review
Now I totally fell for this film and found myself still thinking about it days later, not many films have the power to do that but the performances in this are just incredible and get you hooked on the story.
2. Skyfall – Review
I saw this three times in the cinema and believe it to be the best Bond (I know I haven’t seen them all) but still it is an epic Bond film and film in general. Daniel Craig really proves how good he is as Bond, with an impressive cast to go along with it. Marking 50 years of Bond we see lots of scenes in London and around the UK, something which I think made it even more enjoyable from start to finish.
1. Les Miserables – Review
Blown away is the best way to start talking about Les Mis. I mean I was hoping that I would like it, but I totally love it. An incredible musical film. With unbelievable performances from the cast who really came together to make something special. I have seen this film in the cinema twice already and listened to the soundtrack so many times already. I still believe it will pick up the Best Picture award at this year’s Oscars.
