Thread: Films Of The Year 2012
30-12-2012, 02:43 PM #61Moonrise Kingdom - The film equivalent of a Calvin and Hobbes strip, with a hefty dose of bittersweet childhood romance.
On The Road - adaptation of cult book with the same title. It's very good adaptation, although with a little different feelieng.
7 Psychopats - great comedy/drama with greatest idea for "last gunfight" and awesome cast - Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits.
The Raid - I somewhat hate this movie, because it makes all action sequences from other movies looks very sloppy and uninteresing.
Paranorman - great stop motion animation with vibe of old horror movies.
Frankenweenie - as above, lol. I was kinda not sure about this, because Tim Burton commited that horrible Alice In Wonderland (oh god, I hate this movie so much, I want burn all traces of it, and then launch it ashes in space) earlier.
The Dark Knight Rises - not as good as pervious, but hey it's a GODDAMN BATMAN.
I still didn't see Hobbit, but I'm more curious about that 48 FPS technology than movie itself.
Hmm, I think I missed something.

I know what I missed. It's... Lawless!
One of the best gangster movie ever made, I think. Great cast - Tom Hardy, Guy Pierce, GARY OLDMAN (and he is gunning down some mobsters with fecking TOMMYGUN), great music and somewhat unusual plot for a gangster movie.
How awesome is that?

I saw Dredd last night in 3D and on a huge screen. Best New Year's party ever. It's a simplistic movie but every element of it is perfect. The story is a fun adventure, delivering just the right amount of twists, humour and "fuck yeah" moments. Karl Urban plays a fantastic Dredd and all the cast is solid. I love the industrial score and this song.
The visual presentation is fascinating. It's a strange mix of gritty futuristic tech and shitty Jo'burg slums, vehicles and items. In one scene Dredd chases an old Volkswagen van, in the next you see a building so big it's basically a city-state. A dude takes a photo with the least futuristic phone ever conceived and then you see a cyborg.
The 3D has excellent depth and composition. The slo-mo scenes steal the show, they're pure movie magic. The colour and saturation tweaks in these scenes are wonderful. I especially like how water and blood look like diamonds and rubies.
Such a shame this movie bombed! At least I have an excuse for not seeing it - it wasn't even distributed here. I'll buy a Blu-Ray for myself and will watch it many, many times.

The Dark Knight Rises (obviously)
Moonrise Kingdom is probably my favorite movie this year that didn't have Batman in it.
