I think it was a down year for comedies, romantic or otherwise. There were no great comedies.
- The Campaign was fun up to a point until it went a bit too far.
- Here Comes the Boom was fun.
- I liked American Reunion but not enough to buy it on DVD.
- I liked Ted but not enough to buy it on DVD.
- Jessie and Celeste Forever was pretty good.
It was a pretty good year for animated movies. Maybe there was nothing quite as good as Toy Story. All the movies I took my nieces and nephew to were fun and I thought Hotel Transylvania was fairly good. Brave was good. I didn’t see either Frankenweenie or Paranorman but I heard good things about both.
It was a good year for movies. Argo and End of Watch were both really good even if they won’;t make my top ten list. (I need to revise it.) Looper was pretty good. I liked the Total Recall remake, i am not sure why critics didn’t or maybe I was just in a generous mood. I liked Flight but mostly for the performance of Denzil Washington. I have to admit I would have been nervous flying the week after seeing the movie.
I resisted the urge to see the last Twilight movie. Some critics suggested it was fun (maybe in a different way than the filmmakers intended it to be fun). Oh well, maybe the film will pop up on cable later. Apparently studios are looking for the next Twilight.
