I SAW THESE MOVIES IN 2012

I realize that I'm going out to the movie theatre less and less each year. I guess being middle aged means that I'm a little less tolerant of the hassles that come with movie-going than I used to be. Despite that, I still think that seeing a movie in a theatre with an audience that is actually there to watch the movie is the best way to go - There, in the dark and on a giant screen, the movie controls you as opposed to the other way around as in home-viewing. With that in mind, here categorically are the movies I left my lair to see in 2012, though not all of them we're released this past year.

I liked these movies:

Django Unchained
Holy Motors
Seven Psychopaths
Killer Joe
Argo
Frankenweenie
Cloudburst
The Expendables 2
Moonrise Kingdom
Ted
The Dark Knight Rises
To Rome With Love
Brave
Prometheus
The Artist
The Woman in Black
Melancholia

I thought these were mediocre:

Lincoln
Sinister
The Master
Snow White and The Huntsman
Dark Shadows
The Raven
Cabin in the Woods

I disliked this movie:

The Grey
