Indie Game: The Movie

2012 was a really exciting year for film. We saw the culmination of a masterpiece world building franchise from Marvel Entertainment, perhaps one of the best 007 movies ever made, and Ben Affleck showed once again that there’s much more to him than haters would have led you to believe. It was actually really difficult to compile just 12 films for a best of list. Some great movies were left completely off my list such as Wreck-it-Ralph. The film is a joy and it truly tickles the funny bone of geeks that grew up with video games in the ’80s and that still play them now. Jiro Dreams of Sushi was a masterpiece documentary that follows the family of one of Japan’s greatest sushi chef’s and the film features some truly beautiful sushi cinematography! There are others, but I’m already giving myself two extra entries in this list just to play with the “12” gimmick.

These sorts of lists are just pure opinion. What I like about them though as a movie fan is by reading them I might discover some gem of a film that I haven’t seen or heard about or I might be convinced to give a movie a chance that I was planning to pass up.

OK, enough babbling, here are my Top 12 films of 2012.

Django Unchained movie posterDjango Unchained
Directed and Written by Quentin Tarantino
Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson
Official Web Site
Rated R | 165 Minutes
Release Date: Dec 25th, 2012

It’s been about 3 years since Quentin Tarantino gave us his greatest masterpiece (he even stated it in the movie), Inglorious Basterds. The big question we all have, could he follow that up with another great film in Django Unchained?

I have no previous experience with the Django series, although I am tempted to head down to Chicago, as the Music Box Theatre is showing the original this weekend as a midnight show. But I am not sure it is needed to fully appreciate it, just going to miss out on little nods throughout the movie. But that was my Harry Potter experience, and I was still able to enjoy it.

Film Quotes of 2012

2012 was a fantastic year for movies. Films like The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s The Avengers entertained audiences with blockbuster action sequences and the ultimate in childhood wish fulfillment, while movies such as Drew Goddard‘s Cabin in the Woods and Gareth Edward‘s The Raid: Redemption will long be remembered as putting the nail in the coffin of their respective genres.

We saw new films from acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, William Friedkin, Steven Soderbergh, Ben Affleck, Sam Mendes, and Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention the latest offerings from Rian Johnson, Joss Whedon, Richard Linklater, and newcomers Colin Trevorrow, Benh Zeitlin, and Stephen Chbosky.

So many memorable characters – so many great lines delivered by talented actors inhabiting their roles. Here are some of the best (and a few of the worst) film quotes from 2012. Feel free to include your own in the comments! You can also check out my Top 25 Films of 2012 here!

‘Django Unchained’ Director Quentin Tarantino Talks Possible ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Spin-Off ‘Killer Crow’

If you’re a big fan of director Quentin Tarantino‘s last two films, Inglourious Basterds and the recently released Django Unchained, you may be in luck.

As it turns out, Tarantino had much bigger plans for Basterds, much of which he had to trim away to get to the final film we saw. Because of this, we might just end up getting another movie from the director titled Killer Crow, which would create a loose alternate history trilogy along with Basterds and Django.

Continue reading to find out what the potential new movie would be about.
