Battleship (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals. (131 mins.)
Director: Peter Berg
“ At number ten is Battleship, a box-office bomb, yet not a completely terrible movie. The acting was okay, and the story, let's face it, was not original. However the movie is one of the more decent of those released this year. ” - ddjjisawesome
 
2.
Dark Shadows (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection. (113 mins.)
Director: Tim Burton
“ A genuinely funny, yet also greatly dramatic film, Dark Shadows was a pretty darn good one, and so it takes the number nine spot. ” - ddjjisawesome
 
3.
Underworld: Awakening (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrior Selene leads the battle against humankind. (88 mins.)
Director: Mårlind, Stein
“ A simple story, mixed with great action violence, tons of gore, and lots of cool effects, are all the ingredients for a film we know as Underworld: Awakening. The fourth installment in the series, though simple and barely even feature-length, is quite entertaining and good fun, thus it is awarded our number eight spot. ” - ddjjisawesome
 
4.
Wrath of the Titans (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world. (99 mins.)
“ The sequel to Clash of the Titans was better than the first, with great action and a pretty well-thought out story. Wrath of the Titans takes spot number seven, because although it suffers from lack of character attachment right along with its predecessor, it is highly enjoyable and definitely worth watching. ” - ddjjisawesome
 
5.
The Woman in Black (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals. (95 mins.)
Director: James Watkins
“ Oh, The Woman In Black. There's a lot to be said here. Daniel Radcliffe stars in this horror/thriller based on a novel, and honestly, he's really good. You won't be thinking about Harry Potter even a little as this dark, mysterious, twisted tale brings you in and takes you along for an actually pretty scary and jumpy ride. The only problem with this great film (the reason it's not higher on the list, the reason the movie is great, but not amazing) is the ending. It's terrible. Really terrible. You will be disappointed, no doubt. However, this film is still worth the scare while it lasts and really just a well-done scary movie, one of the best in a long time (except Insidious, gosh, that thing freaking scared me for a while... the old woman *shivers* >:). A great horror to take the number six spot. ” - ddjjisawesome
 
6.
John Carter (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
Transported to Barsoom, a Civil War vet discovers a barren planet seemingly inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Woola and a princess in desperate need of a savior. (132 mins.)
Director: Andrew Stanton
“ Although also a terrible box-office flop (only in the U.S., worldwide it kicked butt), John Carter is really just good fun. And its an adaption of an Edgar Rice Burroughs series. What else do you want? Just kidding. But seriously, the classic-style characters, story, and worlds, with some killer twists and turns. John Carter takes the number five spot because it really just deserves it.

-----Reviews and Placing For Spots 1-4 Will Be Revealed Soon!----- For now, try to guess where the final four will be placed. Enjoy!
