What Are The Best Movies for 2012?
Okay, 2012 is officially gone. Adios. I hope 2013 will be better. Movies are and have been a great escape for personal problems, whatever they may be. They DO serve a purpose to escape for two hours. What are your (whoever reads this) personal favorites?
The following are mine:
- Silver Linings Playbook
- The Whistleblower
- Step Up Revolution
- Hunger Games
- This is 40
- Wrath of the Titans
To a lesser extent:
- Les Miserables
- Anna Karenia
The one thing I noticed as I listed them was that many are on the potential Oscar list. Les Miserables was a surprise to me, in that, I did not know it was an opera- the story is sung-versus a musical where there is dialogue. So, that was a negative for me, but I can see why it could win an Oscar. As I sat there, I wondered how this type of move is made and whether the actors in it are REALLY the actual singers, which I doubt. I know some of them can sing. I wonder how much was dubbed. As to Anna Karenia, the Tolstoy classic, again, I did not know the story line, so I was surprised to find out that this classic storyline has been told over and over. In a sense, nothing was new about it.
