Jesus Christ apparently these are the 10 best movies that I’ve seen in 2012 and apparently I have horrible opinions.
- The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
- Moonrise Kingdom
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- The Cabin in the Woods
- The Grey
- Damsels in Distress
- Magic Mike
- The Hunter
There’s nothing too revelatory about this post, but the interactive graph is worth checking out. Unfortunately, it reminded me that two Transformers movies actually happened and that a third is on its way.
We looked at the 20 most popular movies each year, for the past 20 years. The key, we think, is to look for movies that some love and some hate, which is the likely profile of a bad movie that’s “safely” manufactured for an existing fanbase. In other words, movies that are polarizing.
Listen. It’s Damon Albarn / Michael Nyman’s score to Ravenous and it’s as good as the actual movie, which is exponentially better than you thought it would be after seeing the trailer in 1999.
