Concerning Movies (2012 and 2013)

For some reason I didn't do my annual 'top movie' blog for 2012. I'l blame faux-zheimers for this. (I rooted for the sharks in 'Deep Blue Sea', and for Caesar in 'Planet of the Apes'). So here we go - two years worth of unnecessary opinion in one blog.  As always - only movies that I have watched are up for consideration.

Best animated movie
2012 - Wreck-it Ralph (slightly better than Madagascar 3)
2013 - Despicable Me 2

Worst Animated Movie
2012 - Dr Seuss's The Lorax
2013 - Escape from Planet Earth

Biggest Laugh out loud moment
2012 - Ted calling the little kid Susan Boyle
2013 - tie between the Klu Klux Klan moment in Django Unchained (not enough bags) and 'The Last Stand for this gem 'Do you give stupid names to all your shit?'

Best Superhero Movie
2012 - The Dark Knight Rises
2013 - Iron Man 3 (Thor 2 came close)

Best Bollywood Movie
I haven’t watched any in 3 years

Best Adaptation
2012 - The Hobbit
2013 - Long Walk to Freedom

Best movie most people will overlook
2012 -The Raid Redemption
2013 - The incredible Burt Wonderstone

Biggest movie that's not in my list except here just to point out that it didn't win anything
2012 - The Avengers
2013 - Man of Steel

Best Sequel
2012 -Expendables 2
2013 - The Hobbit : Desolation of Smaug (followed by Kick-Ass 2)

Most surprisingly awesome
2012 - Raid Redemption
2013 - Olympus has fallen

Worst movie Waseem picked
2012 - Life of Pi
2013 - We only watched one movie together last year and it was the mildly disappointing Star Trek 2   I wouldn't put it here though.

Best Comedy
2012 - This is 40
2013 - Fast and Furious 6 (more funny moments than most movies I've seen)

Biggest disappointment
2012 - John Carter / Dark Shadows
2013 - Warm Bodies

Worst Adaptation
2012 - The Bourne Legacy
2013 - no finalist

Worst Movie
2012 - John Carter
2013 - Only God Forgives (will do a blog on all the shitty movies)

Movie of the Year 
2012 - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
2013 - The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

The Nicholas Cage award for crap acting
2012 - Stolen
2013 - Didn't watch a single Nicholas Cage movie - good times!

What do you agree with? What have I left out? Do you also agree that Taken 2 sucked?

World War Z freaked me out, and I was terribly disappointed after watching The Wolverine.
