TMD's Fifth Annual Movie Awards Part One

Posted by Ta-metru_defender , Jun 03 2013 · 290 views

Hey guys.
Yep. It's late. As it happens college is conducive for procrastination. Whodathunk?
Welcome To Josh's Fifth Annual Movie Awards Part One
As usual I'm listing every movie I saw this year. You get the idea. Naturally these are all subjective.
º means did not see it in cinemas
Multiple * denotes number of times saw in cinema
- — Eh. More or less sucked.
-/+ — Meh. See it if you want.
+ — Fairly good film, worth a watch.
++ — One of the better films of the year. Definitely go see this.
+++ — Amazing is not description enough. Go watch it.
  • Contraband, -/+, it's not a bad film but it doesn't really stick with you after
  • Haywire, +, interesting, smart, enjoyable action flick with a great cast
  • Chronicle, ++, blends a unique use of the superpowers and found footage genre into a gritty, well done drama.
  • Safe House, -/+ decent action flick with not much else going for it.
  • This Means War, —, the winning leads can't salvage this lousy movie.
  • Act of Valor, ++, deft action film that's further enhanced by its SEAL actors.
  • John Carter, ++, a severely underrated science fiction film that's exceptionally good.
  • 21 Jump Street, +/-, it's funny enough, but nothing to write home about.
  • The Hunger Games, ++, fantastic adaption of a fantastic book.
  • October Baby, —, I've written enough about this film's flaws on Essays, Not Rants!, so nothing else.
  • Wrath of the Titans, -/+, it's alright, but nothing memorable
  • The Cabin in the Woods, ++, phenomenal post-modern piece of horror fiction.
  • Blue Like Jazz, ++, I drove two hours to watch this movie. Worth it.
  • Lockout, -/+, it's Die Hard in space, but Guy Pearce isn't quite as charming as Bruce Willis.
  • The Five-Year Engagement, -/+, forgettable comedy with few merits.
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits, +, fun stop motion film.
  • The Avengers******, +++, perfect.
  • BZP Lovers 3, +, it's enjoyable enough, but nothing more.
  • Moonrise Kingdom, ++, quirky and enjoyable, it's Wes Anderson being Wes Anderson.
  • Snow White and the Hunstman, —, just blah.
  • Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, +, though not as good as the second one, it's fun enough
  • Prometheus, -/+, look, it's not horrible, but it doesn't use its Alien roots.
  • Rock of Ages, —, good as the songs are, the movie itself sucks.
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, ++, great piece of historical fiction with vampires.
  • Brave, +, Pixar does a fairy tale, and a great one at that
  • Beasts of the Southern Wildº, —, not terrible, but sorely lacking in anything distinctive
  • Ted, ++, hilarious comedy with particularly great effects
  • The Amazing Spider-Man**, ++, yeah, the new Spider-Man is a better Spider-Man. Great cast too.
  • The Dark Knight Rises**, +, it's good even if it doesn't live up to The Dark Knight.
  • The Watch, —, lousy piece of not-quite-funny comedy.
  • Total Recall, -/+, Arnold did it better.
  • The Expendables 2, +, not as good as the first, but still a big dumb action movie.
  • Dredd, ++, like John Carter, another piece of underrated science fiction.
  • End Of Watch, +, well put together cop drama
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower, ++, well done heartfelt coming of age story
  • Looper, ++, again: exceptional piece of science fiction
  • Taken 2, +, though not as good as the first, still a decent action flick.
  • Argo, ++, fantastic drama with absolutely terrific acting and direction that deserved its Oscar
  • Seven Psychopaths, +, it's funny, it's weird, and Sam Rockwell is amazing.
  • Cloud Atlas, +, a surprisingly coherent blur of storytelling.
  • Skyfall, ++, absolutely amazing James Bond film that might be the best.
  • Wreck-It Ralph, +, probably the best video game movie ever.
  • Lincoln, +, Spielburg and Day-Lewis nail this biopic of the 16th President.
  • Silver Linings Playbook, +++, beautiful movie about broken people.
  • Life of Pi, +, beautiful adaption of a great book.
  • Deadfall, -/+, a messy story that could have almost been good.
  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey**, +, not as good as The Lord of the Rings, but not quite terrible.
  • Zero Dark Thirty, ++, has what might be the best piece of military action on film.
  • Django Unchained, +, it's Tarantino at his Tarantinoist, and all the better for it
  • Les Misérables, +, there's a lot of singing in this tearjerking film.
So there it is, my Big List. Tune in tomorrow for the proper awards.
