Life of Pi (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger. (127 mins.)
Director: Ang Lee
“ This is a story of bravery, faith and hope. I couldn't stop watching the whole time and I never stopped to pause the movie. The relationship that Pi has with the tiger was something that is unparalleled to the relationships that some people have with each other. Ang Lee did an amazing job with this movie. I love stories of hope like this one. Miles better than cast away.

With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. (165 mins.)
“ The best movie of the year. Perfect screen play. The conversations that the characters had in this movie were funny and very interesting. Awesome action. Every scene had something special about it and there were no crappy fill in scenes. The music was perfect and fun to listen too. Even the old timey text used in the opening credits and end credits I thought was really cool. It brought you into the 1860's and you really thought you were there watching it all happen.

In small-town Texas, an affable mortician strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow, though when she starts to become controlling, he goes to great lengths to separate himself from her grasp. (99 mins.)
“ One of the best movies of the year. Jack Black was the best he has ever been and deserves the Oscar for best actor for his role as Bernie in this movie. Also had a great story to go along with great acting. The way the story was told, through the townspeople was also very cool.

Flight (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
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
“ Probably just the first 10 minutes of this movie actually involved Washington in a plane; What happened through the next two hours of the movie was what was so fascinating. Washington has once again, an amazing performance. I think it is worthy of at least an oscar nomination, although he won't get nominated. Inside and out the story was great and unexpected through out. The ending threw me for a loop and so did the rest of the movie. Great film.

Director: J.A. Bayona
“ Amazing story. The fact that these people were actually able to find each other among the masses is incredible. The scene in this movie where they all come together is filmed to perfection and just that scene could have made it for me. Made me cry.

A man in an iron lung who wishes to lose his virginity contacts a professional sex surrogate with the help of his therapist and priest. (95 mins.)
Director: Ben Lewin
“ I was really surprised by this movie. I was waiting to watch it because to me it just looked like some guy in a bed that couldn't move the entire time. Thats basically what it was if you are a person that shows no emotion. This movie had much more than that. Helen Hunt was really good in this movie and so was the guy in the bed, cant remember his name and dont feel like looking...He did a great job though of just laying there the whole time and basically getting whacked off over and over again.

Earth's mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity. (143 mins.)
Director: Joss Whedon
“ All the movies of each character were tied together very well. It was very slow in the beginning but the last 45 minutes were epic. To watch this movie again I would have to skip to the end though to make it worth it. Although this movie is a B. It beats out lincoln because of the entertainment factor.

Lincoln (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves. (150 mins.)
“ I took forever to finally commit two and a half hours of my life to watch this movie. I would say about an hour of that was worth living while watching this movie. I had already watched 3 movies and watching a 2 and a half hour movie where there is only talking was probably not the best idea. Having said that some may think this rating is a little low for a movie that may win best picture. Spielberg and his directing are second to none. Its truly amazing. This movie was full of dialog and to make a movie pertaining this subject the writing better be superb and it was. There wasn't one conversation that wasn't perfectly written. Acting was also very good. Lewis does deserve best actor for this although I wish it could be Pi from life of Pie or the tiger but they don't nominate people like that...Oh wait they do. *beep* Hushpuppy. Life doesn't make sense. Anyways this was a pretty amazing movie. What made it good for me were the scenes in House. All the representitives going at it again and again were really cool to watch. Its just too bad all they showed in the end was his kid that was stupid like Carl from the walking dead freaking out and grabbing the rails at the theater when he heard Lincoln was shot instead of actually showing Lincoln get his head pounded in with a bullet. Would have at least given the movie a 30 second sequence of action.

Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified advertisement seeking a companion for time travel. (86 mins.)
Director: Colin Trevorrow
“ I had always heard good things about this movie and I took me way too long to see it. I was really excited to see that it had been put on Netflix. I really had no idea what it was about going into it, but I loved what it ended up being. It was really cool to see all four characters do something important that they all needed in their lives. In the end each of them did something that changed them and thats what was really cool. The movie wasn't just about one person but all of them in their own different ways. It was a great story and the end is what made it for me. You were never sure if time travel was real until the end.

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
“ I loved the original story that this movie had and it gave a look into something that you would have never heard about otherwise unless you were into researching conflicts in Iran from the 1980's. Ben Affleck is awesome in it and so are all the other no name actors you havn't ever heard of. It was a really cool story and the last 30 minutes of the movie started to get really intense to the point where I thought they might not get out safely, but they had to. It had to have a happy ending and when do you ever hear of Iran winning anything? Never.

Director: Sam Mendes
“ Definitely the best James Bond movie I have ever seen. The acting was very good. Really cool action scenes that I have watched over and over again, especially the last one in his house. Only thing is that I am not a huge fan of James Bond so it may seem a little low on my list.

Director: Benh Zeitlin
“ Amazing original story. You would never think there were people living like this unless you watch some sort of documentary, but this movie gave you a great view on the hard and secluded lives that the people of southern Louisiana live every day. Quvenzhane Wallis is amazing for her age and deserves the oscar nomination that she received. Great from beginning to end and just an uplifting and sad movie at the same time.

Director: Tom Hooper
“ The reason being for this being so low on my list is just because I cannot get through musicals. If I was more into musicals I'm sure it would have been higher on my list. It is an amazing movie. The acting is top notch with Anne Hatheway, Amanda Seyfried, Russel Crow and Hugh Jackman; even Sasha Baron Cohen makes an unexpected appearance and he is pretty good in it. Russel Crow always seems to come out of nowhere and give everybody Sh** for something and it gets a little annoying. I mean all these people are trying to live off the very little crap that they have other than their okay singing voices. The fact that this entire movie was recorded live and the instrumental part of it was added in later is crazy cause it it 2 and a half hours of non-stop singing. The one thing I dont get about musicals is why they have to sing the simplest things that could easily just be said in normal talking, but thats just what I think. Its an amazing story and movie other than my problems that I can't seem to shed.

Director: Marc Webb
“ This rendition of Spider-Man was far better than the past three mediocre tries. Andrew Garfield is Spiderman now and in every movie I see him in I will think thats spiderman. Now when I see Toby McQuire I'm just going to think Ohh look its Nick Caraway.

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.)
“ This film was extremely well done. I watched in on Bluray for the first time and I have never seen a movie look better than Brave did. The little irish girl with a bow and arrow is pretty awesome, but I have to say the plot twist did it for me unfortunately. The movie was about something completely different from what I had expected and it really disappointed me. It was still a good movie. I was just really hoping for something else, but to say the least this movie is one of the greatest Blurays I have ever seen and the music is very good as well and thats why it is so high on my list.

Director: David Ayer
“ A really different police movie with a cool funny spin on it. Characters work really well together and the way that they use the cameras is really cool as well. I wish the end of it could have gonne differently. Too bad there was no happy ending

Director: Wes Anderson
“ I was a little disappointed with this movie, but the only reason I watched it was because it was nominated for an oscar for best original screenplay. So I guess I was just watching it for the writing. I thought the story was pretty cute with these two 12 year olds going off and saying they love each other but I mean common thats kind of stupid too. The acting was okay and guess what Bruce Willis is a cop again. Big surprise there. He couldn't have been a camp counselor or something? No just another cop. What I did like about this movie was the camera work. There were some really cool one shot takes that went on for a while. How the movie was shot was cool but honestly other than that and maybe a few small things it was just stupid. It deserved that nomination for original screenplay but it certainly doesn't deserve an oscar.

Director: David Koepp
“ This movie is actually pretty cool. It is very Memento like with the ways that it goes back and forth in time. It was also like the movie Next where Nicolas Cage because there were some pretty sick scenes with him seeing the future where there were different situations and outcomes, but most of them involved crashing his bike. JGL is basically on his bike the entire time but he is an awesome actor so he made it a pretty awesome movie too. But overall I gotta rank it pretty low.

Katy's life is a lot more stressful than I could have ever expected. She is so much stronger than people think she is. The Documentary was mixed with the perfect amount of performances, as well as interviews of Katy and all the important people around her.

“ I didn't hear very many good reviews about this movie, but I wanted to give it a chance. Basically because its on Netflix is the only reason I watched it. I was a little surprised and I thought it was actually pretty good. The acting was very good and I thought it was a cool way to see the darkness of Edger Allen Poe's poems. It was a cool crime mystery thriller. The movie did a pretty good job of tying events in Poe's life as well.

In Iowa, an adopted girl discovers her talent for butter carving and finds herself pitted against an ambitious local woman in their town's annual contest. (90 mins.)
Director: Jim Field Smith
“ This movie probably had the dumbest concept I have ever heard of. It was a cute story for the little black girl who was embracing her ethnicity and Butter crafting skills to the max. I honestly just hate Jennifer Gardner. Her and Andrea from the walking dead are just snooty stuck up bitches and I want to punch them in the face in everything that they are in. My god this movie was stupid. There was very little to enjoy about this movie. The only reason why it is at number 40 is because Olivia Wilde is in it as a stripper. Oh my *beep*.

“ I actually liked this movie a lot more than I thought I would. I still happens to fall in my bottom 10 though, mainly because its just not that good. It was a good one time watch and Ill probably never watch it again. It had some good jokes in there and I always like movies with Paul Rudd.

Director: Olivier Megaton
“ This thing was just a stupid movie. Liam Niesen doesn't even do bad ass *beep* until like 40 minutes into the movie. He is nowhere near as bad ass. His daughter is like 22 years old trying to get her drivers license. It is the same old *beep* in a different city. What a waste of time.

Apollo 18 (2011)

Decades-old found footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon. (86 mins.)
“ I love found footage movies but this one is different from the typical lost in the woods kind of thing and gives a cool fictional story of what could have happened to a lost Apollo mission. It was a quick and to the point found footage movie. Unlike the paranormal activity movies where it takes until night 69 for anything other than a door closing to happen. The only thing and I'm going to spoil if if you havn't seen it. The *beep* they find on the moon is first of all somehow America doesnt know the Russians were on the moon? Or the Astronauts just didnt get that important input. The dumbest thing is that the space rocks turn into spider things and attack the astronauts? kay?

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)

It has been five years since the disappearance of Katie and Hunter, and a suburban family witness strange events in their neighborhood when a woman and a mysterious child move in. (88 mins.)
“ This had to be the least scary of the four Paranormal Activity movies. There were very few things that were actually scary. I guess it tied in with the other ones, but it was sort of a failed attempt at making it completely make sense. The last scene isn't really even that scary either. The one character that makes it a pretty funny movie is the boyfriend. He is hilarious. The girl is pretty hot so that makes it better, but over all of they were trying to make it scary they missed the mark.

“ This movie is technically a 2013 movie because it was released on christmas so it was in theaters during 2013 for the most part so its okay to put it in here. Unfortunately it was terrible. I could give a *beep* about any of these stupid kids. This movie was so stupid. There is no reason to waste your time watching it. There is a literally a scene where they go kick a can around a yard. Oh my god it is just the most pathetic piece of crap ever. Stay away from this movie.
