Welcome to 2012! I should have posted this earlier, but better late than never. That’s my motto for sure 🙂
Below is a quick review of the movies that came out in 2011 that I actually saw. Unfortunately, the list is pretty scarce of movies that are actually worth seeing more than once.
Unknown – Yeah, don’t bother with this movie, you will be disappointed. Watch Taken instead.
Insidious – This movie is worth watching. It has suspense and many of those jump out of your seat moments. Had a lot of potential until the end.
Prom – This movie is really girly and cute. Pretty enjoyable if you are a girly girl.
Rio – This movie is worth the watch. It’s cute, well written, and the animation is great.
Thor – This is a well done comic book movie. And of course it has my boyfriend Thor in it <3
The Hang Over Part II – It was entertaining, but basically a repeat of the same scenarios as the original.
X-Men: First Class – I highly recommend this movie. It is a pretty close race between Thor and X-men for the best comic book adaption for me. Some of the complaints I heard was that it had a cheese factor, but of course it would…it’s a comic book adaptation. Also, some of the characters were not part of the original Xmen crew. Well either way the movie was still well done. You can’t deny that.
Super 8 – This movie was enjoyable. It had lots of potential, and the cast of kids were good actors. Of course it made the mistake that many sci-fi/monster movies do and that is…(nah you have to watch it)
Green Lantern – I rate this movie OK. My friends loved it, but I didn’t. To me it was not as well written, directed, or edited as some of the other comic book adaptations that came out. Marvel has the upper hand in comic book movies.
Bad Teacher – This movie was pretty entertaining. It was nice to see Cameron Diaz in a comical bad girl role.
Horrible Bosses – I loved this movie. I love Charlie Day and the cast behind this movie. Must watch.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 – This movie ended the Harry Potter series and did not disappoint. It had minor holes missing from the last movie but it was still well done and enjoyable.
Captain America: The First Avenger – Another well done movie by Marvel to prequel the Avengers movie coming out.
The Myth of the American Sleepover – This movie was weird and pointless. It wasn’t necessarily bad just didn’t really do anything for me.
Cowboys and Aliens – Eh…you can skip this one too.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes – Well done movie. I liked everything about it, except for James Franco’s lisp. o.O yeah I said it.
The Help – One of the best movies of the year. Very well written and directed.
Conan the Barbarian – Very violent. Not terrible if you like that sort of thing. I think I prefer the original Conan with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Colombiana – Blek
The Debt – Snooze fest.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 – 50/50 This movie is only good for Twilight fans.
I hope 2012 brings more original movies to the screen and better quality overall in writing and direction.
