Re: Movies Seen in 2012


88. Moonrise Kingdom (A+)

I don't have any previous experience with the films of Wes Anderson (the bits and pieces I've seen over the years never interested me that much), but this sounded intriguing and was getting great reviews, so I decided to give it a shot. We've had two very strong blockbusters so far this year, but I think this is my favourite of the eleven 2012 originals I've seen. It's the sort of film that makes you smile the whole way through. The two kids, Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, are both perfect, with a fine cast of much more famous adults (Bruce Willis has his best role in a good while, giving a very subdued turn; Tilda Swinton is a bit wasted, but it's basically a cameo).
