This might be a little early since it’s not December yet, but I’d like to see what you guys have to say. Personally, I really enjoyed all the movies I saw this year. If I had to rank them, it’d be something like this:
^^ Frankenweenie is awesome! I went in expecting a lot, since one of my favorite films of all time, The Nightmare Before Christmas, was also a Tim Burton stop motion. I wasn’t disappointed. It was unique, fun and the black and white was something I really liked. I’m so glad to see it getting it’s own little share of the Fan Love Pie!
I saw Les Miserables. It. Was. Awesome.
Sure, it had it’s faults. Some of these faults were pretty big in my opinion. But when the movie was good, it was perfection. Anne Hathaway was astounding. She was really incredible. I’m not going into detail now, but if you haven’t seen it, go. Get up, run to your cinema and see it. Out of money? Steal from an old lady; I don’t care! Just. See. It.
I don’t know what this does to my list, but I think it probably knocks Wreck-It Ralph down to third place and ties with Brave at second.
Flame of Awesomeness: I’m so glad you watched Les Mis, Hathaway’s solo was worth the price of admission alone! If you got some spare dough and you’re a Bond fan, go see Skyfall on a matinee (I didn’t mind forking out for an IMAX ticket even though I saw it for free at the Singapore gala premiere, so that’s how good his 23rd adventure was for me). You can read my review on my Tumblr (minor spoilers). end plug
Leirin: I was so P-O that I missed Weenie in cinemas! It was pulled from screens barely three weeks after its debut, probably due to poor audience showing.
If it’s any consolation, the entertainment editor at my newspaper passed me the goodie bag that was meant to be given to the film critic who reviewed it, and I got a T-shirt of Weenie, among other things! end ramble
EJE: I don’t think The Hobbit will make my top five, either. Also disappointed I missed on The Lorax in cinemas, but I was in a transitioning period from Oz to Sing for my new job, so I didn’t have the time to go see it.
K9Girl: Yay, another wrecker/wreckling! High-five… very niiice… I liiike!!!
Glad you agree, TDIT. I would’ve really wanted to see Skyfall, but my best friend sent me a text after he saw it, thinking I had seen it already. It was spoileriffic. My eyes burned with hatred and the crushed hopes of a 14 year old film buff who really wanted to enjoy a James Bond film again.
