Cine Marcos Top 10 Movies of 2012

1. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES  

Considered by many to be the best superhero movies ever made, how could Christopher Nolan top it yet again? Well my fellow Batmaniacs, he does . . . or at least it is as good as either of the other two. Christopher Nolan can make a movie! To call this movie epic is an understatement. It almost leaves me speechless, almost. Batman is back and with more purpose than ever before. A dreary sensation of hopelessness will fall upon you during this film to the point of creating a sense of doubt as to if Batman can save the day. Itís awesome! << READ FULL THE DARK KNIGHT RISES REVIEW >>


 

2. MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS  

Under the general direction of Nick Fury, the Avenger Initiative is finally a reality. Finally! It was very much worth the wait. What a movie, what an adventure, what an experience! Sure The Dark Knight can easily be considered to be the best superhero movie ever made only to be equaled potentially by Dark Knight Rises, but damn this is the best for pure adrenaline rush and overall excitement especially watching all these nostalgic comic book characters working together. I always take my handy little notebook with me to take notes as I watch a screening. Well, this time it was almost pointless because I didnít take a single note during the movie, partly because it was extra dark where I was sitting and mostly because my eyes were not coming off the screen.<< READ FULL MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS REVIEW >>


  

3. LINCOLN  

This film could not have been set up any better and few films deserve it as much as this one. For starters, a movie like this deserves to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Abraham Lincoln deserves to be played by a multiple Oscar winning actor such as Daniel Day-Lewis and similarly Mary Todd Lincoln deserves to be played by a multiple Oscar winning actress such as Sally Field. In the midst of all the political turmoil and the current condition of our beloved country, the timing for this movie could not have been better also. This film gives us an accurate and realistic glimpse at the last few months of one of the most loved and cherished Presidents of the United States, then and still today.<< READ FULL LINCOLN REVIEW >>


  

4. LES MISERABLES  

It is a love story. It is a story of station. It is a story of life defining choices. It is a story of survival. It is a story of redemption, full of faith. Faith is the underlying current and theme of this glorious film. It is entrancing, grandiose, and, oh yeah, in case you didnít know, it is 99.9% sung. Yes, this is a full musical masterpiece. For that reason, this movie is geared more for mature audiences and I donít mean in age. The title of this ageless story really says it all and very well describes the majority of the characters in it. In this big screen version we find a cast that successfully interpreted the true spirit of this tale and transmits that spirit to the audience. From the commencement, Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean mesmerizes with a look we have never seen him have before.<< READ FULL LES MISERABLES REVIEW >>

 
 

5. SKYFALL  

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bondís loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. << READ SKYFALL REVIEW  >>


  

6. BREAKING DAWN PART 2  

Yes there is and none newer than Bella Swan, or should I say Mrs. Edward Cullen. The love story, the adventures, and the glistening in the sunlight continue in this epic conclusion to the Twilight series and what a series it was. Recently we bid a sad farewell to Harry Potter and now we witness the ending of another hugely successful series, Twilight. Did I just mention those two in the same sentence . . . wow, please forgive me. Joking aside, the Twilight series has its share of avid followers and big time haters but if you take it for what it is and what demographic itís meant for and appeals to, then you might realize that itís not bad at all. These are well made movies about a love story with a twist, with a relatively talented cast, decent special effects, pretty good action and suspense, and a plot that will keep you tuned in.. << READ FULL BREAKING DAWN PART 2 REVIEW  >>


 

7. THE BOURNE LEGACY  

The chase continues! Didnít get enough of Bourne? Here we go with another round and itís off to a good start. I know Bourne without Damon is almost blasphemous but it is an expansion on the story not a remake. Weíre not exactly dealing with Jason Bourne but Aaron Cross, played masterfully by Jeremy Renner. Same under the table program but the tale of a different agent. The ties between this new take and the rest of the series are strong thus making the transition to this new vision more smooth. It does the original series justice for sure. Even Damon would be proud I think. It is also fitting that it is directed by Tony Gilroy who wrote the first three Bourne films. << READ FULL THE BOURNE LEGACY REVIEW  >>


 

8. THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN  

One of the worldís most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in The Amazing Spider-Manô. Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. << READ THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN REVIEW  >>


  

9. THE HUNGER GAMES  

ďMay the odds be ever in your favor.Ē The odds of you thoroughly enjoying this incredible production are very much in your favor. Talk about a hyped movie, wow, everywhere you look or hear its Hunger Games and for quite a while now. Well, the time has finally come and this one lives up to the hype. The movie is intriguing, moving, unique, and intense. It will stimulate your senses, make you cheer and maybe even make you cry. The contrasts almost seem impossible but they pull it off: it is colorful and dull and pale at the same time as well as being futuristic and extremely rustic at the same time. The contrast is between the upper governing class and the poor working class.. << READ FULL THE HUNGER GAMES REVIEW  >>


 

10. HITCHCOCK  

Please allow me to start this out by stating that this film is a love story. Itís a love story to the craft of movie making, itís a love story to movie thrillers, to the genre of suspense, but it is also the love story between Sir Alfred Hitchcock (Sir Anthony Hopkins) and his long suffering wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).  << READ HITCHCOCK REVIEW  >>
