TOP 10 HOLLYWOOD MOVIES OF 2012
NOTE: As of this writing, I'm yet to watch Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained & Les Misérables and I won't be able to watch them till next year. Hence, I haven't been considered them while compiling the list. Also I have considered the movies of 2012 only after the OSCARS. Hence, I haven't included The Descendants, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and J. Edgar.
Starring: Alex Russel, Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan
Director: Josh Trank
Released: 3rd February 2012
Three high school friends discover an alien object underground that gives them slowly-developing superpowers. Soon the fun of their abilities takes a darker turn and their friendship is pushed to the brink. This is a found-footage movie. The two main characters have acted well. It’s an inventive script, creatively shot and they were wise to focus on the character they did.
9. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Star Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage
Director: Peter Jackson
Released: 14 December 2012
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey introduces us to the world of Bilbo Baggins, who mirrors the most innocent of sentiments which lie locked up within the depths of our heart. The audience falls in love with Bilbo because he is scared of the unknown just like us. What makes him a hero is his spirit, which makes him embark on a wide-spread journey for the search of faith and adventure.
Peter Jackson has made another almost flawless masterpiece. He captured the feeling of the book and transcended it onto a screen. Of course, it was not solely his credit. The acting was amazing. The 48 fps was a touch of technological wizardry and worked perfectly. The chemistry between actors was more than just the obvious. You could actually feel their interactions and live the story. Yes, it was that good.
The first installment has set the pace for a promising trilogy.
