As we are saying good bye to 2012 I would like to post some of the Hollywood movies I watched this year. This is not a review or a ranking but just a small list of movies which I enjoyed. There are several other movies which I really liked, But I have kept this list to only those movies I have seen In theaters.
As this is my first post on TQ, Forgiveness is already pleaded. 😉
The Avengers– This is certainly and by fair margin a best movie of 2012 for me. I would go even further mile to say that this is the best movie in SuperHero genre ever. I have written a piece about the movie here.
TDKR– Being a Sequel to very popular and highly successful Film comes with certain perks But what we most often forget that it also bestows you with huge responsibility of overly projected expectations. TDKR was no different. There was so much craze around the movie since its announcement. Did it match up to those expectations? For me it certainly did. It may not find it’s place anyway near TDK in ‘movies to watch before you die’ list. But it is the best Nolan could have delivered without Joker.
Ted– Who wouldn’t enjoy Buddy comedy with A badmouthed Teddy bear? Ted is by far the best buddy comedy in this year, though one would not recommend it for those who are into Adult comedy or their Adult Age.
Madagascar 3– It pains me to see that in India we consider animation genre for Kids Only. Actually if you ask me Well maid animated movie could provide you as much entertainment as normal masala movie, or sometimes even more. After watching first two installments I had a hunch about what novelty the third installment could possibly bring. But ‘Circus Afros’ proved my hunch wrong. Movie was as fresh as first installment. But my favorite character remained same- The Madagascar Penguins
Ice Age 4– Another Animated movie, another installment, in fact a fourth one. Again my hunches remained same and again they were proved wrong. It is really difficult to maintain novelty when it comes to fourth installment of any franchisee. And it gets more difficult if that franchisee is Ice Age. But Ice Age 4 does his job very well. Theme is not entirely ‘novel’ and most of the characters and setting remains same but few additions in characters and strong basic characters (especially that of Sid) make it an enjoyable endeavor for fans.
Please feel free to comment below and mention your experience with Hollywood movies this year.
