My Final reviews for 2012

Django Unchained

This was one of the best movies I saw this year. It felt like a Quinten Terantino Film, with the violence and humor you would come to expect. I loved the soundtrack, the cast, the story, and that ending might be the coolest ending I've seen in a movie this year. I would love a sequel, mainly because Django is such a badass/cool character.

Les Miserables

I wonder what it is with me a musicals. There are some musicals (Rent and Chicago come to mind) that I really like, and there are some (This movie and Phantom of the Opera) that make me bored out of my mind. Maybe it's the musical that has 97% of the dialoge all sung, and that's what this movie was. The cast didn't do a terrible job, but I just found the movie tedious and boring. Thumbs up to Anne Hathaway who knocked I've dreamed a Dream" out of the park. Also, is it me or has Helana Bonhim Carter become just comic relief. I don't think I've seen her play a different character in any film.

Theater: 19 (+2)
BluRay: 9
On Demand/TV: 4
Itunes: 6

So that does it for 2012. I admit I don't see as many movies as all of you, but I see a good amount. The reason I participate in this thread each year is to remember the movies I've seen throughout the year the first time, and if I was asked to make a best of list, I could do it easily.
