“ I must admit, I was thinking The Dark Knight (2008) was a little overrated, I mean, it was a great movie, but in the top 20? Hell no! But this one, this one is something else...This movie was FANTASTIC!! The best movie of the trilogy. It had hints of the past, present, and the future. We see how the characters evolve. It drew me in emotionally, and I was completely enthralled. I absolutely LOVED the ending!

“ One of the best romantic comedies in the last decade. Strong, passionate leading perfomances dealing with superbly written script and young talented director it can lead only to success and by all means it was. It's been a long time since I actually cared about the characters, in this movie I cared not only for the leading, but for the supporting also. I liked the way main character evolve trough the movie, how his dialogues are becoming different - this symbiose between his actions and dialogues are fantastic, you hardly even notice the change in the behavior. The directing was superb, O. Russell has great feeling for pacing, he is a great storyteller and this movie shows his true talent. I wish every romantic comedy could been like this....bravo!

“ Very good mr. Ayer, very good. Great captions of emotions, conflicts, such a realism. Gyllenhaal and Pena had great chemistry between them and they work very well pulling the whole movie. Great mix of hand camera and standard filming - artwork - it surely displays all the realism this movie need. Great movie with great characters and fantastic way of filming.

Following clues to the origin of mankind a team journey across the universe and find a structure on a distant moon containing a monolithic statue of a humanoid head and stone cylinders of alien blood but they soon find they are not alone. (124 mins.)
Director: Ridley Scott
“ Damn capitalism and commercialism, this could be such a great movie, but no, they had to ruin the whole story with that abnosymal ending, they should just put the sign: "It will be continued..."...They obviously want to make as much sequels as possible...all about money (and little new ideas). Anyway rest of the movie wasn't that bad, characters and acting was expecting, nothing special or extraordinary, CGI flourished in the hands of master Scott and some scenes were pretty scary and gross...all sci-fi and horror fans should see it, the rest of you give it a try, but keep it in mind: ending will ruin you whole movie.

Director: Jason Moore
“ Step Up eat yourself, this is how it's done! Great casting and awesome screen writing easily puts it above average teen movie. Pitch Perfect is a sort of modern musical mixed with classic love story. It had predictable story and characters, but great screenplay, music editing and perfomances gives us (finally) a modern musical we deserve!

An airline pilot saves almost all his passengers on his malfunctioning airliner which eventually crashed, but an investigation into the accident reveals something troubling. (138 mins.)
Director: Robert Zemeckis
“ Strong, emtional drama about a pilot who lost his way. Driven by fantastic leading perfomances and intelligent script Flight is real comeback for old fox Zemeckis. Gripping characters with deep, stratified dialogues introduct us with the story where we find out about boemic life of captain Whip Whitaker, the quality of script, directing and overall perfomances doesn't drop a bit through the whole movie and it is a enjoyable roller coaster of fun untill the end credits.

“ It was a perfect action thriller, it had mystery, action, great cast and mature directing. It is with no doubt - the ultimate thriller in 2012!
Only flaw is a little unoriginal main protagonist and somewhat unlogical storyline.

Director: Timo Vuorensola
“ Great! This comedy/action/sci fi/ romance/thriller indie movie had shown that even with a small budget you can make a great movie. Humor is great, special effects are not like in Michael Bay movies but they have it's moments, story is dumb but it is supposed to be, and characters are very well combined and they are also very hillarious!

In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO. (95 mins.)
Director: Pete Travis
“ Worthy remake, but not a great film. The story, actually the entire concept is completly rip off RAID REDEMPTION - police traped in the enemy controlled building BUT there are some good sides in the movie...Dredd looks good, Karl Urban done his job quite well, maybe just as good as original actor, another thing are special effects which are top notch, expecially shooting scenes and drug effects. The music is good, very well edited, but sometimes remind me of Drive soundtrack...Go see it, it works very well as a remake and even better as sci-fi action thriller.

Director: Andrew Stanton
“ Big flop! It wasn't all that bad, but people were expecting something more memorable than this, it had some pretty good scenes and great special effects but the story was lacking epicness and thrills, characters were unoriginal and sometimes I was feeling like this was Star Wars Episode I prequel...

Whilst attending a party, three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides. (84 mins.)
Director: Josh Trank
“ This was a perfect example how to make good movie with low budget. Great writing, solid suspense and original story. Special effects were great and believable, cast was okay, but you don't need to have great cast when the whole movie is shoot by hand-held cam. It was one of those movies were you ask yourself: what would I do if I have the power?

Argo (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980. (120 mins.)
Director: Ben Affleck
“ The third and the best directorial film from Ben Affleck. Argo is based on a true story, it centers around young CIA agent who had the idea how to extract the hostages during the Iran crisis in early 80'.

The story itself isn't interesting enough, even in the movie, very little resorcues are given to the storytelling...Afleck sticked to the famous saying: It is not important what are you telling but HOW are you telling!.
Afleck did incredible job in this movie. Thrills and twists egde you to the seat and make you bite you nails. I like the way he is directing, simple yet complicated, he took and complicated CIA operation and made it simple as a childs play. Terrio followed Afleck trough the whole movie with its fantastic funny, quirky and sharp dialogues. Great nostalgic feeling was created, right choice of music, great casting and Afleck hairstyle didn't hurt either. IMO Alan Arkin gave his best role in Argo playing old director who past his peek, Goodman was good too but somewhere lost to the camera. I can't help it but wonder what if Afleck didn't cast himself as main character...but ok, he did good.
Not the best movie this year but pretty damn close....

Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. (93 mins.)
“ Cute and funny. Newest Pixar add on brings us beautiful animation, creative characters and lots of humor. Story is little predictable but still watchable, but through the movie I was geting the feeling Pixar has run out of ideas and this is not the first time I got that feeling watching Pixar movie, I don't know what's happeining to that studio but they obviously need some fresh meat.
Brave isn't a masterpiece or even among Pixar's best, but it sure deserve a wacth....or maybe two...

After Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he gains newfound, spider-like powers and ventures out to solve the mystery of his parent's mysterious death. (136 mins.)
Director: Marc Webb
“ Well if we rate every single aspect, Raimi version is far more superior than this. Casting and special effects are only things worth mentioning. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone work perfectly together and IMO Garfield is much better Spidey than Tobey. Fighting scenes were okay, good I guess, but nothing spetacular worth rebooting....that's it, everything else was better in Sam Raimi's version. The background story, characters, villains, music and most important - the epic superhero feeling that this movie just didn't had...
Marc Webb did a solid job but when you are doing a reboot - you should made a better movie and The Amazing Spiderman just isn't better than original Spiderman...

Director: Jay Roach
“ Simple, funny and fresh. The Campaign offer us plenty of humor and some great perfomances by Ferrell and Galifianakis who work great together and look natural fighting for the votes. This is not the best comedy of the year but sure worth a watch!

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)

After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi. (115 mins.)
Director: Bill Condon
“ The film wasn't too obvious, malicious, or incessantly boring, and if you're going to see any film in the theater, it's this one. As you might have heard the ending takes liberties from the book in a way that shocks the audience and makes for some great laughs. Besides that there is also some shockingly cheap and simply wrong CGI. This doesn't just go for battle scenes and feats of strength either. There is a child born to Bella and Edward, and it's completely CGI, face, hand movements, everything. It looks so disgustingly wrong and vile, on top of being cheap. There is actually a lot to laugh about in this, another Twilight fiasco, but you get what you pay for with these hideous monstrosities. Good luck if you're not a fan, and if you are, you shall be surprised, even if you have read the books.

“ Great idea, bad directing. We are all connected - unlike this film. Outstanding visuals, including gorgoues costumes and face make-up, are simply not enough to make this film epic like it they presented us in trailer. There were some pretty awesome scenes in it, I admit, but overall, it is just messy, overlong, pretencious fantasy drama suffering from bad directing and unintersting characters.

Director: Andrew Dominik
“ Brutal, raw and smart, Killing Them Softly is trying to rise some fallen stars...Bradd Pitt's characters plays intelligent, cynical hitman who was sent to "deal with the situation". The situation is poor planed robbery of mafia gamblers.
Didn't like the movie, but didn't hate it either. Action scenes are tip top, some of the best slow-motion action sequences I saw this year...too bad they were so rare...The quality of script varies through the movie, some scenes are great. but some are very dissapointing, expecially dialoques including Jackie (Brad Pitt) and Mickey (James Gandolfini) whose character's comlpetly pointless.
I expected more, messy storytelling, pointless characters and some bad comparissons slap my expectations in the face.

“ Zero Dark Thirty is undoubtfully well made movie who sticks with the story but....this is also a problem, movie sticks with the story too much!! I know how this sounds but it's true, all that unintersting facts, events that occured in that period are in the movie...from viewer perspective is it too much information given in short period of time, everything goes to fast - very confusing. Hands down for Bigelow for trying to stick to the facts, but if I wanted to see a documentary I would see it...

“ Very strange movie, I felt little Tarantino in it because I like quirky dialogues and interesting violent characters. The movie is trying to make a point with story within a story but the plot isn't very interesting by itself.

“ "Lawless" was a huge disappointment. Altogether, it was an uninteresting movie that strives for epic proportions but fails miserably due to a lack of a true theme, identity, and altogether, an immovable plot. "Lawless" ends up being an overblown film that has elements of everything, but for nothing.

“ Dissapointing. Promising movie with original plot and great cast turned out to be just an slow-paced romantic comedy with no humor. Long streched scenes and someway uninteresting dialoque mixed with already seen jokes and depressing ending equals mediocre movie worth a watch only if you don't have nothing to do..

“ Didn't like it.
I honestly don't remember much of the original, but it sure didn't sucked this much. Bad script, awful dialoque and repetitive scenery are only things I can think of after wacth this movie. The script was so shallow and scrambled that actors looked like amateurs and plot seemed like a joke. I just can not belive they didn't put some more effort in the story or the characters, this is a remake for God sake, when you are doing a remake, you REMADE something better, not worse...anyway special effects were gorgeous and only thing I like in Total Recall.

Where is that Total Recall atmosfere we had in the original or plot with layers and twists, or even ankward characters...? This is just a bland copy of Total Recall or any sci fi movie.

“ Silent Hill: Revelation is possibly the worst movie made this year. It was an example how poor sequels can be. They hired the same actors with some slight changes (to the worst) in the main character, they also tried to create that unique atmosfere which we felt in the first movie, but they failed - greatly. The main problem was the script. it was messy, unoriginal and confusing. People who saw the first movie like me, were confused by the story although it simply continues from the original. Michael J. Bassett didn't even try to made this movie better hiring low profile actors and writing insulting script....too bad, in the end it was just another insult to the legendary video game.

“ This is the worst movie I saw this year. Why?

1.No real story (I know there were never real story in RE series but Retribution gives us literally NO story)
2.Bad acting (they hired all unkown B actors who really can't act *beep*
3.Recycling (recycled concept from first movie, recycled characters, recycled enemies...)
4.Obviously money-seeking movie (VERY obviously - like Hobbit 123)
5.Many bad and anti-logical scenes (too many to write them down)
