Agreed. Avengers & Amazing Spider-Man sucked balls. Dark Knight Rises was good, but certainly not as good as the 2nd one. Prometheus ruled, but yeah.... Not really interested in a whole helluva lot they've been putting out there this year.

My favorite films each out of the past 20+ years about 80% were initially released in the Oct-Dec months.

I've pretty much stopped going to the big Summer Blockbusters in theaters. 99% of them are either sequels, remakes, reboots, whatever.

Some of them can turn out to be good, but I prefer original stuff, which would mostly include independent and foreign films.

The best movies I've seen this summer are Beasts Of The Southern Wild and Moonrise Kingdom.

I mean what's the point if you're just gonna say "so and so doesn't interest me". We could suggest good/great movies all day long and all you have to do is say "Looper doesn't interest me" and that's that. Every review I've found has said Looper is not only great but a very smart, well written sci fi movie. Who gives a shit that Bruce Willis is in it? It's Rian Johnson (Brick) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a sci-fi movie that's supposedly awesome.

Anyways, you're not entirely wrong. This year has been relatively underwhelming. Obviously it's not the worst year ever, but "2012: A slightly below average year for movies so far" and nobody comes in this thread. And how great that would've been.

I do like the timing of the thread though, well done on that. Who needs all the Oscary perstige films in order to judge a year? Not when you've seen 10 movies, half of which were about superheroes.

In summation, see Looper.

Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion. I would just ask Erroneous to list his Top 10 from this year compared to his Top 10 from last year or even the year before just to see how awful 2012 has been.

LOL. Yeah, he's cute but he can be quite shocking and at times obnoxious for the cute little teddy bear he appears to be.

Really fun movie, I loved it.

Well if you did that you would find that last years veiwing was better than this years movies

This year there seems to be a lack of actiing talent

Or there are movies that are remakes which after all you dont half of the time want to keep seeing movies like this

I do think that this thread is interesting plus
Scotch what are your best movies from last year and this year so you and Erroneous can compare your list and his

That not strictly true, is it.

Things don't usualy start rolling until late September/early October, but Killer Joe and The Raid were two unexpected early shiners for me. Since, we've had The Imposter, Holy Motors, and Looper. I've tried my best to keep well away from films I know aren't to my liking and only put the time in for genuine interests.

Looking ahead, we have . . . Barbara, The Hunt, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Central Park Five, The Master, Tabu, Spring Breakers, Amour, Post Tenebras Lux, Berbarian Sound Studio, Beasts of the Southern Wild, A Royal Affair, Laurence Anyways, The Details.

Tons of potential and itīs more than likely others will crop up towards the back-end of the year.

Wow.. I thought I am the only one who felt that 2012 is the worst year for movies. I can't seem to find many movies watchable and most of which i saw turned out to be disappointing. I'm not saying all movies but most of them were not impressive :/

I guarantee everyone who is saying this is the worst year for movies will be singing a different tune 6-8 months from now after they've got a chance to see mostly everything on netflix. Oct-Dec is always gold (usually a minimum of at least 5 top 10 type films) and we already have had The Avengers/DKR/Looper/Argo/Moonrise Kingdom/The Master already released that wouldn't look bad on any top 10 of the year on a movie list this century.

I thought 2011 was pretty weak myself...2012 has been pretty solid and its looking like its gonna finish strong with the likes of Looper, Argo, Seven Psychopaths, Cloud Atlas, Lincoln and The Hobbit....and Django!!

Case in point: No disrespect - but Jonah Hill and the fat chick from Bridesmaids got nominated for Oscars...OSCARS! Shows it was a down year right there...

True that. If anything 2012 is already better than 2011. I had only one American film rated a 9 or higher I think I would already have 3 this year. I gave 7 films a 9 in 2010.

What still has yet to be released this year is...
Lincoln
The Hobbit
Les Miserables
Django Unchained
Wreck It Ralph
Hitchcock
Killing Them Softly
Cloud Atlas
Flight
Anna Karenina
Life of Pi
Zero Dark Thirty


And there are always one or two dark horse films that come out of nowhere that wind up being surprises not to also mention the few foreign films that come out.

So now that mostly everything from last year is on video now I think everyone has had a chance to see what they wanted to see. IMO much better than last year not as good as '10.

Its definitely hard to argue that it was anything below average (at least for modern standards). There were actually a few more surprises for me the last year than normal. Amore, Silver Linings Playbook, Skyfall, Beasts of the Southern Wild & The Perks of Being a Wallflower weren't really on my radar but I was surprised at how much I embraced them. So as expected there can be unexpected surprises year to year. Of course a few disappointments but not so much or as much as other years.

Well that's probably because you bought Blu-Rays instead or you're just waiting for them to come down in price like other years.

But seriously what 2011 movies do you have over...

Life of Pi
Lincoln
Argo
Django Unchained
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty
Amore
The Dark Knight Rises
Skyfall


?

IMHO outside of Hugo & The Artist I think those are much better than anything else from the prior year. Probably 2005 is the year I have the most amount of dvds but its far from my favorite year. For me I don't think its any indication perhaps because my taste is more refined now so I'm less choosy... or it could be that I'm a cheap ass now.

Smart ass. I am skipping blu ray.
I am renting Life Of Pi tonight.
Lincoln, I would not see more than twice.
Argo was OK and not something I would rewatch.
Django I need to buy
Skyfall and Dark Knight I have as well as The Avengers
Brave I have (kids)
That's it. The others are all one and done. I only buy what I really like and will see again and again. I don't just buy everything. I used to buy like 20 movies a year at least. Not much interests me enough to re watch over and over

Jonah Hill got cast in movie that was really well-made and Moneyball was a way better movie than The Artist.

Moneyball was written by the writer who wrote Schindler's List and Aaron Sorkin who wrote and got an academy award for the social network.

I thought 2012 was a better year for movies than 2011

Oooo... Life of Pi in HD!? My fav movie last year. I really don't know if rewatchability is a pure indicator of how much you like a film. Schindler's List is one of my top 10 films but I've haven't had the urge to watch it again as much as many others.

Lincoln deserves a rewatch down the line even if you have no desire to watch it again in the near future. IMHO Daniel Day Lewis had the best lead performance since his last lead performance in There Will Be Blood although with Firth's in the King's Speech sandwiched above both in between. Acting like that alone is worth watching again every now and then. Oh and Wreck It Ralph would be fun for the kids as well.

Still have quite a few to catch up on. So far, nothing I've seen has been as great as A Separation from 2011, but there still were some nice surprises for me this past year, which include:

Arbitrage
Celeste & Jesse Forever
Damsels In Distress
Headhunters
Safety Not Guaranteed

It's all opinion based. 2012 movies I bought....

American Reunion
21 Jump Street
Project X
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Avengers
The Dark Knight Rises
Lawless
Django Unchained
Skyfall
The Cabin in the Woods

I really love most of these movies. That's my preference. We all know that 2012 can't compete with the 1970s in terms of cinematic achievements but at the same time I don't think it was the worst 12 months in movie history. It's completely subjective.

Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock, Jeff Who Lives at Home, Ruby Sparks, Your Sister's Sister, ParaNorman, Frankenweenie, Arbitrage, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Moonrise Kingdom.

I still need to see all of the above. Even without any of them though, It's still an amazing year.

Lets hope the fall and winter has some good ones.

I'm sure 2013 has a chance to turn it around but if anything there has been a high number of poorly reviewed films this year. Much much more than usual it seems. Just as recently now as Getaway getting ripped apart by the general consensus. Razzies are gonna have a lot of snubs this year.

Getaway
Hansel & Gretel
Scary Movie 5
The Big Wedding
Stranded
The Last Exorcism Part II
The Canyons
Temptation
Paranoia
A Haunted House
Texas Chainsaw 3D
After Earth
The Haunting in Connecticut 2
The Smurfs 2
Planes
R.I.P.D.
The Colony
Grown Ups 2
A Good Day to Die Hard
Jobs
The Numbers Station
Love and Honor
The Purge
The Lifeguard
Identity Thief


There's more and plenty more left in the year to go.

... I mean... lord almighty...

Gravity (last week)
Captain Phillips (this week)
12 Years a Slave (after that)
The Counselor (after that)
Blue is the Warmest Color
Wolf of Wall Street
Nebraska
Inside Llewyn Davis
American Hustle
The Monuments Men
Saving Mr. Banks
Her

...etc. And again you always get the occasional great under the radar film between now and then.

Never judge a film's year by its summer.
