Top 10: Favorite Movies of 2012

As a critic and film buff, I like getting into the habit of making year end lists, but I usually don’t get to see every movie I want to see by year’s end, mostly due to monetary issues. That’s why I usually make music lists instead; because it doesn’t cost anything and listening to ten three minute songs takes less time than watching ten two hour movies. This year I was able to keep up with some of the big movies of 2012, (but I still had some catching up to do, hence why this list is coming out later than usual) which is lucky for me since this was a really good year for movies. So to celebrate this achievement (and because I wasn’t able to make Ben from Canada’s year end podcast), I’m listing my 10 favorite movies of the year. Continue reading

Star Trek (2009)

Harpoon: Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (2009)

An Icelandic whale watching expedition taking a hodge podge of tourists takes a turn for the worse when their captain finds his unexpected demise. In their panic, the tourists try and seek help from local fisherman, only to find that these are not the most savory people to find in the open seas.

Like most news I find in the horror genre, I found this movie through the forums over at Fight-Evil.com. Going off of what I saw in the trailer it looked like your everyday slasher flick, and by the end of the film, I left with the same feeling, so it was not a big surprise to me. Continue reading

Funny Games (US, 2007)

A small family of three, go on a getaway trip to their cottage when a duo of seemingly insane young men abduct the family in their own house, to play some games.

I had seen the commercials for this movie a while back, and thought it looked fairly interesting (even a bit comedic), but did not look much further into it. A little while back I wanted to give it a view, but it was not until the 24th of May 2008 that I decided to finally obtain this movie; and see how well it would stack up to the image I had of it in my head. Continue reading
