My Top 7 of 2012

Posted in 2012 Films with tags on April 20, 2013 by Last Road Reviews

Ok so I’m a tad bit late on this, like the saying goes. Better late than never right? Quite honestly I don’t bother with many modern films since I really dislike the way Hollywood has been going the last few years. There are a lot of great films out there and I’m very picky on what I watch with modern flicks. I could have made a top 10, but I don’t wanna add films simply to get to a certain number so here’s my top 7 of the year.

As I see more 2012 releases I’ll edit this, but I can say for fact my top 2 will remain the same. This list starts at number 7 all the way to my top film of the year.

7. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns- *** ½


Very solid film and possibly my favorite animated Batman film.

6. Skyfall- ****


Another great Bond entry. In my opinion Daniel Craig is the best Bond.

5. The Dictator- ****


I loved it and while not exactly Borat its often hysterical.

4. American Reunion- **** ½

Best since the original; this slice of pie was hysterical.

3. Amazing Spider-Man- **** ½

As much as I love the first 2 by Sam Raimi, this reboot was great. Andrew Garfield owns the role and Emma Stone was a joy to watch.

2. The Dark Knight Rises- *****

Chris Nolan does it again with another epic. The Dark Knight trilogy just might be the best of all time. Anne Hathaway steals the show with a brilliant performance.

1. Django Unchained- *****

Yes I am a Quentin Tarantino fanboy and I’ll admit a Leonardo DiCaprio fanboy. Django is hands down the best film of 2012 for me and once again QT crafts a masterpiece of filmmaking.
