Since I only saw 15 movies (and 3 of them including Red State, Tintin
and Dragon Tattoo I saw in January) let's make this simple.
I'll eliminate the movies I saw in January, and then two I just liked less than other films.
Movies eliminated cause I saw them in January:
Red State My opinion is literally the exact same as the guy on the left in this video. Some
weird editing decisions and characters, but awesome acting and
suspense. There's more, but again, I linked that video cause my opinion
is hardly any different from that guy's other than in minor, minor ways.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo added an awesome
opening credit sequence and a bit too long of an epilogue to the Swedish
original (though I did really like the very end). Supposedly,
this one stuck closer to the book and changed some things around, but
honestly it's basically the same as the original, just with better
production value. I like them both, slightly prefer this one for that
The Adventures of Tintin was fun and well-animated,
but it never really stopped which got a bit tiring for me. With
shooting, bloodshed, and a drunk it felt kind of mature for a kid's
film, but it doesn't glorify drinking (except maybe in being a memory
aid) and the blood was actually part of an important plot point. If
anything, the hardest thing to explain to kids might be how many times
these characters should have died but unrealistically survived. I liked
the bumbling idiot cops as comic relief and it delivers what it promises
as an adventure film.
I just liked these less than everything else:
The Adjustment Bureau was an enjoyable rental, but
the comparison in the ads for it to Inception were unwarranted.
Otherwise, it was a cute romcom about defying God's will to salvage your
hard-on, with hats!
The Lincoln Lawyer was good, but not great. It looked like an HBO special and I'm shallow.
