The Top 12 of 2012. Sorry, Top 13

The reason this list came out late is because I was busy with real movie stuff. Like screenplays and shooting schedules and such. Anyway, the final number of films for this list was originally seventeen (17), and of course, since I wanted to make it a Top 12 list, I had to cut some titles out. So I took out The Descendants, last year's Academy award winner for Best Picture The Artist, and Hugo, the highest-rated film on this blog last year (9.1), because although they were screened in Philippine theaters in 2012, they were originally released in 2011. Then I had to take out Titanic, since it was technically just a converted 3D version of the same film that came out in 1998. Which was, like, more than a decade ago.

Then I was left with thirteen films. And I couldn't cut out any more.

So here now are last year's Top 13 movies. The title links back to the original review.

"You should've kept Titanic. I would've loved to be in this list."

Number 5

Studies show that female leg exposure can increase
box office returns by up to 6% [citation needed].

A John Lloyd-Bea film is always a surefire way to rake big bucks at the box office.

Number 5

What'd I say about leg exposure?

Maybe Hollywood should hire the book authors to adapt their own screenplays and direct the film.

Number 5

Wait, so Spider-Man wears football cleats?

The trend now is "darker is better". Deal with it.


(5-Way Tie)
Number 5

Bored Bond in Britain. (3-hit alliteration combo)

Watch this if only for the fact that this is the last film where Dame Judi Dench plays the beloved M.

Number 5

Look at the guy on the right trying his best to look badass.

Sir Ridley Scott's first foray into 3D can be considered as an Alien prequel, or as a stand-alone film. Your choice.

Number 5

The girl's smile looks kind of stupid.

The word "nawawala" in the title could refer to either the main character's twin brother, or his voice.


Number 4

See? Dwarves are like men. Only smaller. And more bearded.

Ah, Middle-Earth. It's like coming home again.


Number 3

I love that icon on the upper right.

And thus endeth the series that started all this "dark reboot" trend.


(4-Way Tie)
Number 2

Kano wins. Fatality.

This is supposed to be a series, right? So when is the next one?


(4-Way Tie)
Number 2

Ted is simply Seth McFarlane projecting himself.

The 2012 film with the highest joke-to-LOL ratio, by a landslide.


(4-Way Tie)
Number 2

Before you ask, that there's a dream sequence.

The number of Oscar nominations for this film (none) only proves that it is just way ahead of its time.

(4-Way Tie)
Number 2

Ben Affleck and Bryan Cranston in the same frame. 'Nuff said.

Dear Bennifer, please make more movies with Kerry Bishé in them. Thanks.


And finally...

Number 1

"Sorry, boys. I won't be back for the sequel."

So how did a popcorn flick end up as Number 1? Two words: Joss Whedon.
