Listing of movies I've seen in 2012 (does not include movies I've re-watched)A ❤ indicates my favorite for the month.
Monte Carlo - pretty cute teen movie with a Prince & the Pauper theme.
Going the Distance - Drew Barrymore flick - was ok but not her best film by any means
The Kids are Alright - pretty good story but too much unnecessary nudity
One Day - long love story, the finally get together and then tragedy strikes
Paul - alien movie where Blythe Danner drops the f-bomb, shows you how good it was - NOT !
Dark Shadows - way better than I thought it would be based on the reviews I'd heard - I really liked it.The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - great legendary British actors in this movie, interesting to see Indian culture. ❤
Eat, Pray, Love - better than I thought it would be.
Horrible Bosses - was okay, didn't hate it, didn't love it - but did not like Jennifer Aniston's character at all
Chimpanzee - so sweet, so amazing, incredible photography - wow !
Water for Elephants - the book was a bit slow to me, so was the movie - good acting though.
Pirates - Band of Misfits (3D) - funny, cute story - I love 3D
Larry Crowne - Tom Hanks/Julie Roberts. I heard a lot of bad reviews for this when it first came out but I decided to watch it and I liked it.Miss Potter - older movie (2006) that I stumbled upon on Netflix. I love Renée Zellweger, I love Ewan McGregor, I love the Tales of Peter Rabbit, so of course I love this movie.❤
The Way - staring Martin Sheen, about a man taking over a pilgrimage for his son, pretty good
Legally Blond 2 - I love Reese Witherspoon but ... the first Legally Blond was great, the didn't need #2
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - very funny movie - romance but also drama - I loved it.❤
Cedar Rapids - watched on HBO, was just okay
Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son - also on HBO - also just okay
Bridemaids - not as crude as I thought it was going to be (really only a couple of crude scenes), it was a pretty good story but not sure what the big hoopla was about it. Also don't know why Melissa McCarthy was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, she did a fine job but she wasn't any more special then the other girls in it.
Extremely Loud and Incredible Close - good acting, had a lot of narration, a little upsetting
Warhorse - Epic storytelling in classic Steven Spielberg fashion - I loved it ❤
Moneyball - true story - good but kind of slow for me
Ides of March - very good, incredible to know stuff like that (or worse) goes on in real life.
Tree of Life - very artsy movie that was HORRIBLE
Midnight in Paris - sweet, charming and romantic.
Something Borrowed - good story but moved a little slow I thought
Mean Girls - really liked it
Hall Pass - just okay - was crude and predictable
Twilight - Breaking Dawn Part I - good, a little cheesy when the werewolves talked to each other though
Insidious - not as scary as I thought it would be but was creepy and spooky without goreThe Artist - I LOVED this movie - LOVED it !! ❤ ❤ ❤
The Karate Kid (the newer one with Jaden Smith) - never saw it before, they should have named it The Kung-Fu Kid, I wonder why they didn't?
The Descendants - good movie, good acting, beautiful location
