    Haven't the critics read Tolkien? The Fellowship of the Ring is hundreds of pages of walking and talking. It is like criticizing Michael Bay for doing over the top action sequences.

    Loved "Zero Dark Thirty". Probably my favorite movie so far this year.

    "This is 40" was a steaming pile of poo.

    Went and saw Silver Linings Playbook last night. It was a good movie, but after hearing about how good it was, I felt it didn't live up to the billing. It was predictable at times. Still, pretty enjoyable.

    Dredd with Karl Urban is really great. Faithful to the comics and a far superior movie to the Stallone schlock fest. Ultra violent but also very funny at times.

    Saw Django Unchained! today.

    Amazing film.

    I can see all four lead actors getting Oscar nominations. Foxx for Best Actor and SLJ, Waltz, and Leo all nominated for best supporting.

    Over the last few weeks I've seen Lincoln (*****), the Hobbit (****3/4), and Django (*****).

    Been a great few weeks.

    Actually, it's been a great year for films.

    Avengers (*****)
    Django (*****)
    Lincoln (*****)
    Argo (*****)
    Dark Knight Returns (****3/4)
    The Hobbit (****3/4)

    Then a bunch of **** films too.

    I enjoyed Looper, but not as much as everyone else.

    1. The Avengers (*****)
    Django Unchained! (*****)
    Lincoln (*****)
    The Hobbit (*****)
    Argo (*****)
    Skyfall (****3/4)
    The Hunger Games (****3/4)
    The Dark Knight Rises(****1/2)
    End of Watch (****)
    Snow White and the Huntsman (***3/4)
    The Amazing Spider-Man (***1/2)
    Looper (***1/2)
    Men in Black III (***)
    The Bourne Legacy (***)
    The Campaign (***)
    Safe House (**3/4)
    Promethus (**)

    Re: Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)

    I posted this 2012 movie list to Facebook a few days ago. I plan on watching Killer Joe tonight.

    The Best:

    Seven Psychopaths (9/10)
    Silver Linings Playbook (9/10)

    Argo (8/10)
    Wreck-It Ralph (7/10)
    Skyfall (7/10)
    Lincoln (7/10)
    The Dark Knight Rises (7/10)

    I Also Reccomend:
    Magic Mike (7/10)
    The Avengers (7/10)
    Lawless (7/10)
    The Hunger Games (6/10)

    Safety Not Guaranteed (6/10)
    Killing Them Softly (6/10)
    The Master (6/10)
    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (5/10)

    These Are Kinda Indie/Artsy But They're K:
    Jeff, Who Lives at Home (6/10)
    Bernie (5/10)
    Take This Waltz (5/10)

    These Probably Got As Much Out Of Their Formula As They Could:

    Men in Black 3 (5/10)
    Haywire (4/10)
    The Dictator (4/10)

    The Goon (4/10)

    I Was Disappointed, Oh And They Kinda Sucked:
    The Campaign (4/10)
    Sleepwalk with Me (4/10) ***caveat: I think this material works great as stand-up***
    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (4/10)
    Premium Rush (4/10)

    They Sucked:
    Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (3/10)
    Mansome (3/10)
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2/10)

    I Wasn't Smart Enough To Watch And Had To Turn It Off After 10 Minutes:
    Coriolanus

    Still Eagerly Anticipating:
    Zero Dark Thirty
    Killer Joe
    End of Watch
    The Imposter
    Detropia
    21 Jump Street

    Wouldn't Mind Seeing:
    The Cabin in the Woods
    We Need to Talk About Kevin
    Chronicle
    Rampart
    Project X
    Casa de Mi Padre
    The Pirates! Band of Misfits
    Your Sister's Sister
    To Rome with Love
    Cosmopolis
    Dredd
    Cloud Atlas
    Flight
    This Is 40

    There are a few discrepancies from what you posted before.

    I disagree the most with your praise for The Hobbit while not giving sci-fi action thrillers like Looper and Prometheus enough credit.

    But hey, different strokes...

    Do you like the humor of Tim and Eric otherwise? I always enjoyed their show, but I also like the avant garde, extremist absurd thing they do. It is admittedly very much a niche brand of humor.

    Also see Cabin In the Woods and Cloud Atlas ASAP. They are both among my favorite movies in years.

    I could see Leo getting one and Waltz too. I'm not sure Samuel L Jackson had enough of a role even though he was excellent.

    I've never actually watched their show on TV, but I've seen plenty of YouTube video clips of their antics that I enjoyed. I just don't think it can really entertain me for 90 minutes. I guess it could have been in a seperate category with Sleepwalk of "Comedies Better Suited For Another Medium".

    I'm not really a horror movie guy and I'm worried about Cloud Atlas's running time (based on the reviews I've read some of the stories miss the mark), but I imagine I'll see both eventually. Thought I did pretty well for 2012!

    IMO, Moonrise Kingdom was not worth watching. I struggled through it only because I was with my wife. Otherwise, I would have definitely walked out. What did people see in that movie? I missed it completely. My wife thought the movie was just OK.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
