2012 felt like a drudging year for films as we were living it, but in retrospect there were a lot of really fantastic films that set a high standard for 2013 to live up to. While in the past we've spent the first week of the new year naming the number one best film of 2012, this time we have to give the nod to a handful that were at the top of their class.
Perhaps the best non-rom-com film for the child and female demographic I've seen in years. I wasn't the target audience for this film, but I still enjoyed myself thoroughly and it made for a perfect date movie. Kids Movie of the Year!
CABIN IN THE WOODS
There's nothing like a good horror-comedy, and this one was smart as a whip. Meta to the extreme and bursting with originality. Everything in this film worked. Hands down, Horror Movie Of The Year!
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER
The title pretty much tells you what to expects and then rocks the gimmick like a hurricane. Sorry Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis, I skipped seeing Lincoln this year for a telling cut from a different cloth, and this was Historical Fiction of the Year!
