    • Any worst film of 2012 list must and will contain "Alex Cross" unfairly from the time I saw who wasa cast as Alex Cross I had little faith in this movie.

       

      After Alex Cross the list should also contain the likes of "The Watch", "Taken 2", "Battleship", "That's My Boy" among others.

    • The worst film of 2012 was without a shred of doubt "Alex Cross" what a disaster this film was bad at all levels mostly the banal juvenile dialogue and assumptions we are asked to make.

       

      Tyler Perry as Alex Cross the biggest piece of miss-casting I have ever seen in my life he totally does not fit the role he is no Morgan Freeman.

    • There were some bad ones but I'll wait until I see the Razzie nominees. I'm lucky. I skipped most of the bad ones. John Carter wasn't really bad. It just failed to live up to its hype and fell flat.

    • I am on a teaching job in vancouver right now so the Vancouver Film Festival is one to catch. My hometown of Omaha only started a film festival seven years ago so it has a long time to catch up to its rank. Vancouver is just trying to get the same cred Toronto has. It does have a lot of good stuff.

    • Listen Trevor mate do you ever get to any film festivals do you live near any? I wish I could get to Toronto when theirs is on I hear so many great things about it.

      In all frankness I don't know what to think of the dad. I'm just curious if CJ ever saw this video?

    • Platton is one of the more grittier movies that won a best Oscar, like most mentioned Oscar winners for Best Film tend to be artsy dramas, period pieces and the like.
      I would rank "The Descendants" as my top film with "Hugo" a close second, other than that a great list. 

    • September 30, 2012 1:37 AM EDT
    • A good top ten list, I am happy to se "Hugo" on the top this is an amazing film, that is well made in all areas, very little you can find fault with.

      The Descendants is absolutely brilliant, the only one I am not to fussy about was Tree of Life.

    • September 20, 2012 2:14 AM EDT
    • I have one for you, in 1987 “Platoon” won and there is nothing slow or artsy about that film it is a gritty realistic look at the war in Vietnam. The movie is excellent in all areas with some outstanding performances.

      All those top ten films are artsy rubbish that teens don't care about except for Hugo and the special mentions of Harry Potter, DRive and Super 8. These are the only obe that win Oscars anyways it seems, when will a Raiders of the Loast Ark type win?

    • OmahaTrevor I like your list, very good movies on the list but you do have to love movies in a special way to go to these films as most of the movie going public looks for action or really funny movies like "Ted" and so true has a blockbuster ever won best film?

    • September 11, 2012 2:27 PM EDT
    • What you said makes a ton of sense but in the end what does a studio prefer a Best Film Oscar and 50,000,000 gross or no a movie that the fans flocked to and made 200,000,000?

    • I think because the Acadaemy, like me in my Top 10 list, put a lot of emphasis on dircting efforts, scriptwriting, and acting performances. Those action movies excel in a lot of the technical stuff, especially visual effects, but are pretty lacklustre in terms of the core stuff I just talked about. Mind you I myself usually leave off a lot of movies I enjoy on each year's lists because of those factors. There were some movies I didn't exactly enjoy like The Artist or The Tree of Life that I had in the Top 10 because of its filmmaking quality. When I concoct a list like this, filmmaking excellence takes priority over personal enjoyment.

    • Yeah, I see blockbusters. I like blockbusters but I do my rankings mostly on the basis of writing, acting, directing and producing. A lot of those blockbusters, especially the ones you mentioned, are great but their main forte is the visual effects while it's mostly lacklustre in terms of writing and acting performances.

      I am wondering mate do you go to any so called blockbusters like the Battleships, Spiderman etc? just wondering because al your films are more the classy movies you know all I have seen in your top ten is "Hugo" and that is deserved, also seen Potter and Super 8 both excellent.

    • Actually I'm not a professional writer. I took journalism in college but making it as a writer is tough because it is a competitive field and thanks to the internet anyone can make a journalist of themselves. Also I'm missing one important ingredient in professional writing, an ego. Arrogance is especially key for being a film critic as it gives them the confidence to think that they're right despite all the flack they get from readers writing in. I'm not arrogant enough to be a successful film critic. Also if you noticed on my list, I give some commercial movies the benefit of the doubt unlike most professional film critics. They're most admiring these artsy movies few see like The Tree Of Life and Melancholia.

      Hello, are you sure you are not a professional film reviewer/expert etc? Just wondering you know so much about movies and quality movies it seems you are not like a lot of people who lok at how much money it made etc. I loved Super 8 it was an awesome and movie with so much excitement and I also love 'Hugo" great choice for the top movie.

    • Awesome , I agree I loved "Super 8" it was a great time at the movies, and "Hugo" was an awesome movie.
