Hope you have seen all the 5 earlier 2012 movies i suggested:). Here are some more 2012 movies i enjoyed:).




Chronicle
Chronicle is a well made sci-fi thriller.In this movie,  while attending a party, three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.The movie mainly works because of its originality and good script:). The first half is really fun when the 3 youngsters enjoy themselves and play pranks with their newly acquired superpowers:). The 2nd half takes a bit of a dark tone.The famous spiderman dialogue "With great power comes great responsibility" can be realized through this movie:). Also worth mentioning is the movie's camera work:),really good and makes the movie really fresh to watch:).If you are willing to watch a different kind of a superhero movie,then this is just the right choice for you:). Do watch this one:).

Genre:- Sci-Fi, Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-
  









Safe House
Safe House is a good action thriller movie.Here, a young CIA agent is tasked with looking after a fugitive in a safe house. But when the safe house is attacked, he finds himself on the run with his charge.This movie may not be exceedingly clever in terms of script but is definitely a good movie to watch to pass time:).Both Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds give decent performances:) and the movie manages to keep you hooked thanks to its decent direction and good pace:).Overall Safe House is a good action thriller to watch to pass time:).


Genre:- Action, Thriller.
Bore Meter:-Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-










21 Jump Street
21 Jump Street is a nice fun comedy movie to watch:). Here, a pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.21 Jump Street works mainly because of its 2 main leads:). Jonah Hill plays his role really well:). Also Channing Tatum does a good job:). Their chemistry together makes the movie really funny and enjoyable to watch:). What doesn't work for the movie is its uneven script,the movie starts off fantastically but loses its grip along the way making the movie very uneven:(. But overall,its a good fun movie to watch mainly because of its 2 leads:).

Genre:- Comedy.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-










Man on a Ledge
Man on a Ledge is a good one time watch thriller:). Here, as a police psychologist works to talk down an ex-con who is threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, the biggest diamond heist ever committed is in motion.This movie has an interesting plot:). The movie manages to keep you tensed throughout,but fails to give you complete satisfaction due to its weird ending:(.Though you may not be entirely satisfied after watching this movie,it is still a good one time watch:).

Genre:-  Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-
 








This Means War
This means war is a nice fun comedy movie:). Here, two top CIA operatives wage an epic battle against one another after they discover they are dating the same woman.This movie may have nothing much to offer in terms of story or script,but what works for this movie is its entertainment factor:). This movie is really funny with several laugh out loud moments:D.Also the 2 male leads do a good job and watching their rivalry is totally enjoyable:).This movie may not bring anything new to the table but is definitely a good watch for its entertainment factor:).

Genre:-  Comedy, Action.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).

  3. Hey bro, great list as usual. Saw all except Man on a Ledge. Will watch it when i get time (seems interesting). Out of these I liked This Means War the most. Good family fun and as you pointed out, many LoL moments. I hate Reese Witherspoon but she was good in this movie, likable. 21 Jump Street started out OK but totally lost it as it progressed. Chronicle took me completely by surprise. What a wonderful movie. Also, Safe House was a nice tp action movie. Denzel, as usual, delivers. :-)

    Waiting for your next release... and hope its soon. :)
