Releases 2012 (5)

This blog post is a continuation of my earlier blog posts.

Hope you have seen all the 20 earlier 2012 movies i suggested:). Here are some more 2012 movies i enjoyed:). 

Pitch Perfect
Pitch Perfect is a very well made chick flick comedy movie:).Here, Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is forced into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their performance,Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.Pitch Perfect is a very well written comedy movie,that keeps you smiling and laughing throughout:).The performances are pretty good as well,almost the entire cast does a good job:).Don't miss this one,as it is one of the most pleasing and fun movies you will see this year:).

Genre:- Comedy, Music.
Director:- Jason Moore.
Stars:- Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp.
Bore Meter:- No chance of getting bored.Keeps you entertained throughout:). 
My Rating:-

Looper is a very good intelligent Sci-Fi thriller.Here,in 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Things become complicated when Joe one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by transporting back Joe's future self.The main reason the movie works is because of its wonderful story,which keeps on adding interesting things as movie goes on.This movie reminds you of inventiveness of a movie like Inception and time travel thriller movies like Twelve Monkeys but unfortunately fails to reach the standard of those movies:(.Overall,Looper is a very good watch if you want to watch something different:).

Genre:- Sci-Fi, Thriller.
Director:- Rian Johnson.
Stars:- Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt.
Bore Meter:- Starts a little slowly but picks up pace as the movie goes one:).
My Rating:- 

Savages is a really good twisted and dark thriller:). Here, pot growers Ben and Chon face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend.The movie works mainly because of excellent direction by Oliver Stone:),who takes you superbly into his dark stoned world:).Movie is also helped by good performances especially by Benicio Del Toro.Overall, Savages is a good dark and messy thriller:). Watch it for superb direction by Oliver Stone:).

Genre:- Thriller.
Director:- Oliver Stone.
Stars:- Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Blake Lively, Benicio Del Toro, John Travolta, Salma Hayek.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-

The Bourne Legacy
The Bourne Legacy is the fourth installment in the popular spy franchise,The Bourne series.This is an expansion of the universe from Robert Ludlum's novels, centered on a new hero whose stakes have been triggered by the events of the previous three films.The Bourne Legacy is a good movie,but fails badly in comparison to the earlier three bourne movies,which created a new standard for spy thrillers.Not much in terms of script or story,the movie fails to satisfy its audience.Also the movie doesn't make good use of its stars.Jeremy Runner does his part well:).But Edward Norton is completely wasted in this movie:(.All he keeps on doing is unnecessary chatting,which slows the movie's pace down:(.But still the movie is good enough as it provides good popcorn entertainment with some great action sequences,especially the thrilling climatic chase scene through the streets of Manila,which involves some great bike action sequences:).Watch it for good popcorn entertainment:).

Genre:- Action, Thriller.
Director:- Tony Gilroy.
Stars:- Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-

Premium Rush
Premium Rush is a really fun joy ride:).This movie takes place in Manhattan, where a bike messenger picks up an envelope that attracts the interest of a dirty cop, who pursues the cyclist throughout the city.The main reason this movie works is because of its pace.The movie starts off with a good pace and just doesn't look back as our main protagonist gets involved in some great chase sequences in his cycle:).The movie is filled with stunts and chase sequences and makes sure you don't take your eye off the screen even for a second:). Don't miss this one as it is nice and fun joy ride:).

Genre:- Action, Thriller.
Director:- David Koepp.
Stars:- Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon,Dania Ramirez.
Bore Meter:- No chance of getting bored.Has superb pace:).

  1. Way to go bro, nice movie selection. Pitch Perfect and Premium Rush are feel-good movies. Enjoyed watching them, and wasn't bored even one bit. Looper was a nice movie, a completely fresh script and very well executed. The Bourne Legacy didn't exceed my expectations though, but wasn't bored watching it. Savages was a nice movie.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a rising star, and i hope to see more of him in the near future. Thanks once again for the list, bro. :)
