Alright, people. Here we go. The crème de la crème. The year’s best movies. The top ten movies of 2012.
2012 was an incredible year for movies, with an abundance of huge blockbusters that delivered on their promises, and your typical mix of Oscar worthy material in the mix as well. This list could have turned in to a top 20 with ease.
But I made the tough calls, and whittled it down to just ten.
Click through to see what made the final cut – the best movies of 2012!
What’s up, (title pending) listeners, here’s a brand new episode for you!
Once again we have full slate of new releases to review for you. This week, it’s a wide variety – the animated “Hotel Transylvania,” the inspirational “Won’t Back Down”, Paul Thomas Anderson’s high brow “The Master”, and the time traveling “Looper”. There’s plenty to discuss, together these movies cover a wide gamut of movie styles!
In our featured discussion of the week, we talk about “Looper” star Bruce Willis. Willis has had a storied career, stretched out over 3 decades now, and he’s given us a diverse range of offerings, from undeniable classics… truly some of the best movies ever… to extreme mail-in jobs that make you wonder if he’s just collecting a check. Tank and I tell you like it is!
It’s another fantastic episode, so be sure to give it a listen! You can download it directly here, or as always, look for us on iTunes or Stitcher Radio by searching for title pending and/or Tank and Fogs!
It’s a great feeling for a movie fan when a highly anticipated movie exceeds your expectations.
Rian Johnson’s “Looper” was one of the most eagerly awaited films of 2012. The combination of Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, and the high concept cross-stitching of hit men and time travel held a potential that people couldn’t help but build hope for.
I’m happy to report that “Looper” delivers on its promise in a big way. It’s a sci-fi thriller with a soul. Clever, intense and original, “Looper” is easily one of the best movies of 2012 so far.
With this weekend’s release of “The Expendables 2″ and “ParaNorman”, the summer movie season is pretty much over. One weekend remains in August, and those movies wont have much room to run before school is back in session.
Nope, the season of the big blockbuster is behind us. It’s time to look ahead to the fall.
Not to despair, though, the fall brings sharp movies for the thinking movie fan. Movies which may have more selective box office appeal, but which may be some of the best movies all year.
So click through to take a look at the first part of this year’s fall preview. Today we’ll look at the last week of August, plus September, and then we’ll come back tomorrow with October and the first week of November. Together they’ll take us right up to the start of the Holiday movie season, and the November 9th release of Skyfall!
