CGM’s Top Ten Genre Movies Of 2012

So here we are again, another year has passed bringing with it a near endless array of movies that both pissed off and thrilled a wide variety of audiences. Looking back, it actually wasn’t all that bad. For the genre loving geek contingent that Hollywood craves to pry money from, there was actually a wide variety of releases worth wasting your time and money on. (Culture, Django Unchained, Dredd, Looper, Skyfall, The Avengers, The Cabin In The Woods, The Dark Knight Rises, The Expendables 2, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Raid)

aside from dark knight rises and life of pi, every other movie was just mediocre at best. some movies had the potential to be great but didnt live up to it.

for the movies of 2013 only one movie is on my radar and thats man of steel rumoured release in june. 6 months and nothing promising till then. yeah....movies arent what they used to be. either that or im getting old.

TDKR could also be argued as mediocre, which it was.

Star Trek?

I can't understand why people who make these lists always place The Raid higher up than Dredd, when Dredd was written and made first, plus it's the better of the two by a fair bit. The Raid became monotonous after the first few fights. Good film, though.

This list doesn't jive. Mine would be

6)Project X
7)Dark Knight

I didn't catch Dredd, Looper,Hobbit,or Les Mis.

The Avengers is overrated , there i said it !

Dredd was one of the biggest surprises this year for me, maybe because I wasnt expecting to much , after that incredibly poor Stallone attempt.....

Wow was I wrong, I put it up there with the Punisher reboot. (the one with Thomas Jane)

However, there where alot of big budget films I felt just didnt do it for me, maybe because I had really high expectations....

Maybe on a few more viewings it'll change...

Dark Knight Rises

Dark knight rises sucked... Why make a comic book movie when the director hates it fans...
