Top 15 Films Of 2012. That's Right 15


"Diet by The Zec" in Jack Reacher 

Thrillers always seem to feature a lesser thug being punished for not successfully hurting the main character. The result is usually a standard bullet to the brain; but Jack Reacher takes it to a new level. As local thug Linsky (Michael Raymond-James) answers to the shadowy figure later called "The Zec" (Werner Herzog), the boss gives Linsky two unthinkable options: bullet to the head, or prove his total dedication by eating his own fingers. Soon, The Zec shares in chilling detail how he was fo…

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), the world’s highest attended motion picture exhibitor, is pleased to announce that their highly successful “Classics Series,” featuring six legendary Hollywood movies, will continue in over 150 Cinemark theatres across the country. All of these digitally restored movies will be scheduled to play during the months of January and February, at two separate show times, 2 pm and 7pm.

New A Good Day To Die Hard Trailer

Since the new Die Hard outing is set in Russia, we feel Chekhov himself – the writer, not the Enterprise ensign – would be forced to adapt his famous maxim to “If there is a car/building/helicopter in the first act, it will explode later in the film.” That certainly holds true for A Good Day To Die Hard’s latest trailer.

The fifth instalment finds Bruce Willis’ John McClane heading to Russia to help wayward son Jack (Jai Courtney). But what our hero doesn't initially realise is Jack is more than just a chip off the old block: he’s a covert CIA operative now under threat from a very nasty villain who has his fingers in some extremely unsafe pies

So the endlessly frustrated NYPD veteran will have to find common ground with his estranged sprog, and let’s just say that the bonding time doesn’t involve many hugs or group therapy sessions. No, guns, grenades and jumping out of exploding towers are the order of the day here.

We’re offered some fresh footage to supplement shots we’ve al…

Everything Wrong With The Dark Knight Rises

We just love the guys at CinemaSins with their awesomely cool (and hilarious) videos that show us everything wrong with some of the hit movies we've seen this past year, including The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers. Unsurprisingly, they've now set their lofty sights on The Dark Knight Rises.

So once again, in a video that's three and a half minutes long, you can now have a look at what they thought was wrong with director Christopher Nolan's final Batman opus and—once again—the guys point to some pretty important plot holes and glaring mistakes that riddled the hit summer film.

So without further ado, just have a look at another completely hilarious video!

Top 5 Most Overlooked Films Of 2012

There is the old adage that time waits for no one - how true this is with our modern film industry.  With hundreds of films released every year by major studios and independent shops, it's impossible to see every film that hits your local theater.  Still others suffer from the fate of a poorly-envisioned marketing campaign, or worse are granted no campaign at all.  Call them what you will, but these 'overlooked' titles still have value and probably deserve a second glance.
Even though we were lucky to be invited to 65 films this year, it was clear by December that we hadn't seen everything of value.  But with home releases now available in almost any format, catching up on some of the most overlooked titles is fairly easy.  
Here now are the top 5 most overlooked films of 2012.  Our titles are mostly first-run films filled with A-List actors, but you'll find some real independent gems in here as well.  This list is purposely presented out of order.

The 10 Worst Films Of 2012

With every Top 15 movie list, there is the inevitable Worst Movie List - like an unwanted by-product of a good thing, it's almost a guarantee that for every winner in Hollywood, there's a loser.  2012 was one of the best years for films in recent memory, with mega-hits that also met with critical acclaim.  Films like The AvengersThe Dark Knight Rises,Looperand Skyfall proved that sometimes Hollywood actually knows what it's doing.  But 2012 also brought us some of the worst films of all time, many of which disappeared quietly after a big media march and others that dug their own holes by creating such negative reaction to its content.  

Here is our Top 15 Films Of 2012-
To be clear, we determined our list based on our own personal standards for taste or interest.  We also looked at major Hollywood releases, not those which were shot by independent companies.  If A-listers made and distributed it, we considered it.  Click on the movie title above each synopsis to read ou…

Worst Hollywood Flop Of 2012

We've talked about a lot of high-profile flops this year, some that made us sad and some that just made us laugh. But none of them came close to the spectacularly low box-office numbers of this horror flick, which earned less than $300 (no, that's not a typo) in its box-office run.

Playback is a small horror flick (with a budget estimated at only about $7.5 million) about an evil force that's able to possess its victims through video playback (sound familiar, Ring fans?) and threatens to reveal dark secrets in a Michigan town. It starred Christian Slater and co-starred the likes of Caprica's Alessandra Torresani. Despite a couple of semi-big names, the film grossed only $264 theatrically. Yes, you're still reading that right. No zeroes after that. Just three figures.

So why'd the flick tank so badly? Well, some of it has to do with a very limited box-office run. The film was only available in a single U.S. theater, for one week, and after earning $252 on openin…

New Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Trailer

Jeremy Renner trades in arrows for a shotgun in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, where the Avengers actor and former Bond girl Gemma Arterton star as the famous title characters. They appear in a new trailer, which proves this isn't your grandma's version of the fairy tale.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a graphic adaptation that takes place 15 years after the siblings' kidnapping. After fighting off their evil captor, they developed "a taste for witch blood." They want to rid the world of the creatures, one kill at a time.

The duo lend their expertise to a village, which becomes ravaged by the supernatural. Among them is the witch (played by X-Men's Famke Janssen) that tried to kill them years ago. But Hansel and Gretel have revenge on the brain. They're sure to leave blood and guts in their wake as they try to defeat her once and for all.

Top 15 Films Of 2012. That's Right 15

In a year that saw some of the worst films ever, 2012 also brought us some of the most memorable. But how do you reduce a list from 65 to just 10 - you add five more! Yes, SJF brought you an amazing 65 reviews in 2012 - how do I still have eyes after seeing that many? In short, there were so many good films that a top 10 just felt too small.

I know that some of you might not agree with what you're about to see, but that's the great thing about 'best-of' lists: they should generate discussion and thoughtful consideration, while ultimately encouraging you to either catch a hidden gem for the first time, or to relive the moment when one became a favorite.

We've been building this list all year, with some films receiving a last-minute bump or demotion based on their release date or a recent revisiting. To be clear, we include films that probably won't even be nominated for an Oscar, either because of their subject matter or their poor performance at theaters.…
