Top 5 Movies of 2012

5. Sinister

I’ve never been scared of a horror movie ever. But Sinister managed to give a few chills and scares. To make sure that you really get scared they added a serial killer, a few ghosts and a demon.  This movie is from the same makers of Insidious. It’s original in a way because it combines several genres into one film. It’s a combination of a thriller,mystery and a horror movie.

4. Prometheus

This movie has many plot holes. The characters did pretty stupid things. But still it can’t be denied that the movie is visually breathtaking. We watched it on Imax. There is also a memorable scene where the lead character gives birth to an alien. How cool is that? It combines elements of Ancient Aliens and the Aliens movie. The aliens on the film are kind of enigmatic. We don’t really know what their motives are for creating humans. Guess that’s why we need to watch the sequel. What makes this film remarkable is the talented Michael Fassbender. His take on the android, David, is so spot on. David is creepy and morally ambiguous. But at the same time, he’s adorable even if he is a bit homicidal. That’s why I just love Michael Fassbender.

3. The Amazing Spiderman

Some critics say that we don’t need another Spiderman movie. But after the terrible third Spiderman flick, I say, it was time to REBOOT! I love the casting of this movie. Andrew Garfield makes the best Spiderman. What’s more, he’s an actual fan. I’m not saying that Tobey Maguire sucked as Spiderman, I’m just saying that he was just playing a character named Peter Parker. Andrew embodies the character of Peter Parker. The actor knows what the character is really all about. Peter Parker is not a dorky teenager. He’s a teenager who feels incomplete because of the mystery of his past. Martin Sheen did a really great job playing Uncle Ben. Sally Field was underutilized in this film as Aunt Martha, but I’m sure she’ll have a bigger role in the sequel.

2. The Dark Knight Rises

I was disappointed when this movie first came out. I mean, the movie felt bloated. It was also rushed. It’s like they wanted to tie up all the loose ends in 2 hours time. I didn’t want the franchise to end yet. But after watching the film again, I dare say that it’s a great movie. Finally, the film focused on the character of Bruce Wayne again. They also have great villains. The Bane is badass. The character of Catwoman is just perfect. I love the ending. The director finally gave Bruce Wayne the happy ending he deserved. I just feel sad that Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy has come to an end. I wish he would make 10 more Batman films. The ending gave me goosebumps. It was the same feeling that I had after Batman Begins ended. Perhaps the end is only the beginning?

1. The Avengers

I love Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and Iron Man separately. Combine them all together and you have a billion dollar hit! The movie was fun to watch on the first outing. But after you watch it too many times, you get to see the plot holes. I hated how superficial they made Loki in this film. After Thor, Loki’s character has downgraded. I mean, he’s not just your typical villain. He has more depth than that. I wished though that they had utilized another villain. I mean, I kind of like Loki’s character. He was complex and intelligent in the movie, Thor. In this film, he just comes off as rather stupid and crazy. I mean, trying to rule Earth because of a grudge? Come on, that’s just too shallow. This movie should be number two on my list but it has all my favorite superhero characters. I can’t wait for Avengers 2. I hope they find a better villain next time.
