2012~ A year of great movies

I would just like to say that this year, 3 of my favorite movies of all time were released. Titanic was re-released in 3D, The Dark Knight Rises succeeded my expectations and The Hunger Games was a great beginning to a franchise. And there were also some surprises too, like The Cabin in the Woods and Paranorman. Tom Hardy which is a boss ofcourse, was in This Means War, Lawless, and the biggest movie of the summer The Dark Knight Rises. Joseph Gordon Levitt stars in Premium Rush and he will have a small part in the upcoming film Lincoln. It was a superhero summer, what with films like The Amazing Spider-man, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises it was sure to be a good summer and it wasn't a total dissapointment. All of these superhero movies were pretty damn good, and it has been a great year for movies thus far, but as always there are always some movies that dissapoint. This December brings The Hobbit, which many of us anticipate and for different reasons. I anticipate it because it seems like a great holiday movie and it is a different story from that of The Lord of the Rings. You know it is going to look amazing in the theaters and on Blu ray. We are also getting Life of PI and Lincoln, small movies which seem to have a great story. Pixar is re-releasing Finding Nemo and Monsters inc. in 3D, a prequel to Monsters inc is coming next summer. Although we all experience some trouble with daily happenings, and life, movies to me is an escape from all of those bad things we sometimes go through.

Now I have a few questions for those who are interested:

1.What 3 movies have been your favorite of 2012 that have been released?
2.What movies have you gotten this year on Blu ray or DVD?
3.What movies are you anticipating from now until 2014?
4.If you could only get one Blu ray or DVD from now until the end of the year, which one would you get?
5.Name an Actor and an Actress that you are starting to recently like and why.

    Great topic Rich and totally agree with you, it's been a really wonderful year in terms of film and there's still a lot more to come from this year. :D

    1.What 3 movies have been your favorite of 2012 that have been released?
    The Hunger Games, The Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight Rises is probably my top 3 so far.
    2.What movies have you gotten this year on Blu ray or DVD?
    Only The Hunger Games
    3.What movies are you anticipating from now until 2014?
    Wow, there are so many. You have Catching Fire and MockingJay: Part 1 of course. They're most 2 most anticipated. There's too many to name. All the upcoming super hero movies and sequels. Some animation too, mostly Monsters University, can't wait for that. I'm sure there's so many more that I'm really excited for but I can't remember them all
    4.If you could only get one Blu ray or DVD from now until the end of the year, which one would you get?
    Well it depends, I'd get the trilogy box set for the Batman trilogy but technically that is 3 movies. The Amazing Spiderman
    5.Name an Actor and an Actress that you are starting to recently like and why.
    From this year, I'd have to say Jennifer Lawrence. I've got to know her through Katniss Everdeen and because of that I've grown to a massive liking for her, she's terrific. For a male I'd say Ryan Gosling. I've watched a lot of movies of his this year and I reckon he's just amazing too.

  • For me, it has been a regular/mediocre year at most.

    We'll never be forgiven for what we did.

    A year ago at this time I would have called you crazy if you said I wouldn't have bothered to buy The Hunger Games DVD when it came out... But I haven't, and I have no interest in getting it right now. Massive popularity pushed me away :(
