Here’s a quick rundown of 2012′s Best from your friends at Serious Movie Lover:
1-3. We’re going with a 3-way tie for first place.
Saw this movie three times in the theater and loved it every time. Special recognition to Alexandre Desplat for the music.
The Master– Mesmerizing cinematography and acting. A shame that it will not be rewarded in a major way this awards season.
Life of Pi–Amazing in every respect. Kudos to Ang Lee.
4. Bernie–Hilarious! Finally a good feature for Jack Black. Loved the locals featured in this fun flick.
5. Argo-–Nothing over the top here, just solid filmmaking from Ben Affleck.
Lincoln–Too stage-y for us but a tour de force for Daniel Day Lewis.
Pending / Still waiting to see…..
Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, Amour, On the Road

FANTASTIC MR. FOX (IN THEATERS/2009) What a year George Clooney is having: Men Who Stare at Goats, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and this weekend, Up in the Air. Kudos to Wes Anderson and his incredible stop-motion animated feature, Mr. Fox (voiced by Clooney) literally jumps off the screen and comes alive before your eyes—exuding seductive charm, indefatigable pluck and hilarious bad boy behavior that will put you distinctly in the mind of…Danny Ocean at his very best in Soderberg’s first of the Oceans series. Wes Anderson fans will immediately recognize all his trademarks, including familiar voices (Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, just to name a few) and some very Rushmore-like scenes. I want to give a particular shout-out to Alexandre Desplat and the soundtrack, already available on Amazon and iTunes. I could go on and on—the art direction, the attention to detail, all the characters, both big and small—there’s simply too much great stuff in here to spoil by describing it. Take my word. If you’re looking for 87 minutes of fun this weekend, be sure to catch this one.
Grade: A. Highly Recommended.
