Films, Coming and Going

I had a pretty good time at the theater this year. I’ve decided on a list of my favorite films (with helpful links to my thoughts on each). A few surprises, and a few obvious choices.

10. Lincoln
9. The Cabin in the Woods
8. Argo
7. Django Unchained
6. The Dark Knight Rises
5. Looper
4. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
3. The Raid: Redemption
2. Skyfall
1. The Avengers

Hopefully next year’s cinematic dishes will be equally delicious. Here are those I’m most looking forward to:

10. Zero Dark Thirty
9. Elysium
8. Oblivion
7. Thor: The Dark World
6. The Wolverine
5. 47 Ronin
4. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
3. Iron Man 3
2. Star Trek: Into Darkness
1. Pacific Rim

The list is predictably heavy on the comic book/sci-fi franchises. I’m so very glad that those things are tent-pole films now. Elysium and Oblivion are fairly similar, and not enough info is available for either, but I’m still cautiously optimistic. I’m almost certainly over-hyping Pacific Rim, but even with that self-realization I still can’t wait. Some other sequels/reboots have my interest (RED 2, Sin City 2, Man of Steel, Die Hard 5), but said interest is not quite qualified as “piqued”.
