Tom’s Top Ten of Two Thousand Twelve. (Also, my 5000th post!)
Hey followers! Did this last year, figured I would do it again! I preface this list with the same disclaimer as last year- these aren’t my Oscar predictions, or the movies I necessarily think were the “best,” just the movies that I really enjoyed for one reason or another. With that, let’s get started with my honorable mentions.
Honorable Mention #1: Kill List
The only thing keeping this bad boy off the list is the fact that, even though it didn’t get a US release until 2012, it was out in the UK in 2011. Kill List is, at times, funny and endearing, but at most times thrilling, horrifying, and disturbing. It’s impossible to go into the plot too much without ruining the surprise (similar to another film you’ll find way down the list..), but suffice it to say, it’s about two hitmen who get more than they bargain for after accepting a job from some shady individuals. Prepare to be on the edge of your seat for an hour and a half.
Honorable Mention #2: Moonrise Kingdom
This was a heartbreaker to keep out of the Top 10. It’s so heartwarming and funny, and makes you feel 11 years old again (I know that means nothing coming from someone who’s 21.) I think I have trouble putting it higher because I’m not totally warmed up to Wes Anderson yet… but I’m getting there.
Now that we’ve got the Honorable Mentions out of the way, let’s get to the nitty-gritty.
The more I see current pictures of some of the people I graduated with,
The less I feel like I want to stay in New Hampshire. Maybe it’s just gonna become my “visit the old country” place…
WHEN I’M MAKING MILLIONS, BITCH!
