2012: The Cinema Junkie Awards

I, for one, am shocked... SHOCKED that we share <i>three</i> movies in our top ten lists this year.

Review: 'Prometheus'

Beth, for the most part, I did enjoy Fassbender. But his little boy wonder (highly reminiscent of Haley Joel Osment's David from <em>A.I.</em>) is upended by his absurd purpose.

Review: 'Prometheus'

As usual, I'm the odd man out. This film was complete mess nearly from the outset and once the absurdity kicks in (very early), every scene becomes more inane than the last.

My review is below.

Review: 'The Avengers'

I guess I'm finding that I'm surprised less and less at the movies these days. I'm not talking about huge surprises, either. Neither must I insist that all good movies are foreign or independent. I thoroughly enjoyed <em>Lockout</em> because Guy Pearce's hilarious performance was totally unexpected. I enjoyed <em>The Grey</em> because it went beyond mindless action and delved deeper into the psychology of men struggling to survive under the harshest circumstances. I enjoyed <em>21 Jump Street</em> because it eschewed most of the common clichés of high school movies and because Channing Tatum was unexpectedly hilarious. I loved <em>The Raid: The Redemption</em> because of its exhausting relentlessness and truly interesting cinematography.

<em>The Avengers</em> delivers a whole lotta boom and not much more.

Review: 'The Avengers'

I'm afraid I must disagree. It's easily Whedon's worst script and a virtually incoherent standalone film.
