2011 was such a good year for film, of course I would be disappointed with 2012, but I didn't realize I would be this disappointed. There were only a handful of remarkable films this year so instead of my top 10, it's going to be my top 5. Here they are in order:
1. Moonrise Kingdom
2. Anna Karenina
4. Django Unchained
HM: Safety Not Guaranteed - It seems like there were so many films like this, this year. This one was probably my favorite because it was the most original.
The Perks of Being A Wallflower - If this had come out when I was in High School, I would have loved it.
Most Disappointing: The Hobbit - I can't even express how let down I was by this film.
Lincoln - Daniel Day-Lewis was about the only exciting thing in this film. I have never been so afraid to breathe in movie theater before. My brother described it best as watching the animatronic Hall Presidents at Epcot Center in Disneyworld.
*I still haven't seen The Master as it was in theater's here for barely a month and still hasn't been released on dvd. I'm guessing this would have been on my list as I love Paul Thomas Anderson.
