Best and Worst Films of 2012

Best and Worst Films of 2012

It’s that time of year again, for the Best and Worst films of 2012 to be ranked! Like every year that I’ve done this, I only include films I saw on the big screen, as often that’s the best way to judge a film.

Movie Review – The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

Movie Review – The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

I went into 'The Hobbit' with very low expectations, and that was for many reasons. One, I just wasn't as excited about the whole thing as I was with the LOTR films. Second, there had been a lot of bad buzz around the films for so many reasons, especially with the 48FPS issue.

DVD Review – Discovery Channel’s, Seisen

DVD Review – Discovery Channel’s, Seisen

The best thing about documentaries is that it either is teaches you about something you didn’t already know, or concisely lays out a subject matter that you know about but in a way that still really perks your interest.

DVD Review – History Channel’s, Frozen World

DVD Review – History Channel’s, Frozen World

Sometimes with these DVD specials, they take such wide ranging and diverse episodes from various other TV series that yes they have a link in subject matter, but it can be argued that it’s tenuous at best.

DVD Review – History Channel’s, Ancient Scotland

DVD Review – History Channel’s, Ancient Scotland

When I first had the chance to check this series out, I thought it was going to delve into lots of Scottish history, from battles to political intrigue.

Movie Review – Lincoln

Movie Review – Lincoln

'Lincoln' can be summed up in one word, succinct. Well, except that it's not exactly brief. But what it does do is sums up everything clearly what non Americans know, or think we know, of Lincoln as a person and what he did for the history books.

Movie Review – Life Of Pi

Movie Review – Life Of Pi

What can I say, Ang Lee, or Al to his peps back in the hood, sure knows how to make a film look beautiful, and I wouldn't be surprised to see 'Life Of Pi' walk away with best Cinematography at the Oscars next year.

Movie Review – Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2

Movie Review – Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2

The last 'Twilight' film was horrible, just horrible, in that awesome kind of way. Yeah, doesn't make sense to me either. Bad acting, bad directing, bad visual effects, and bad writing, which felt like a 13 year old girl had written it, just made for a laughable movie, which I did often. But!

Movie Review – Robot And Frank

Movie Review – Robot And Frank

I hate missing my press screenings for films, and this movie was one of them, but I made sure I kept an eye out for its general release, and despite having to actually pay to see it this time, I was looking forward to seeing it.

Blu-ray Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Blu-ray Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

When I first saw 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter' at its press screening earlier in the year, I went in thinking I'd see a fun film along the lines of 'Wanted', which is from the same director. I came out second guessing my love of that film, as this follow up film was so damn average!
