Warren's TOP 5 FAVORITE MOVIES/TV SHOWS from 2012: [no particular order]
Number 1; ParaNorman
This was one of those movies that looks like it's for kids, but there is clearly hints that it's deemed towards adults. It had a lot of throw back to older horror films, and the animation was just plain awe inspiring. Definitely can't have a top 5 of 2012 without ParaNorman on the list- it was both cute, enjoyable and creepy; All wrapped in one.
Number 2; Dark Shadows
Number 3; Frankenweenie
Another Tim Burton movie?! Absolutely! This one was probably the one I preferred over the 2 Burton flicks on this list; It was both creepy & somewhat adorable. As other Tim Burton fans will tell you, this one was actually a remake! The original can actually be found on the 3 disc special edition of A Nightmare Before Christmas under the special features. [the original is from 1984]
Number 4; American Horror Story
Although technically from 2011, I actually got to the show late.. as in one year later late. I was always told by friends that since I like scary/horror movies, that I'd actually really enjoy this show. Somehow, I put it off until this year- and holy fuck did I miss out. This show is just has so much feeling attached to it.. Funny, Scary, Creepy, Quotable, Amazing. Certainly on my top 5; I fully recommend it!
Number 5; The Avengers
Obviously, this movie was a must on this list because I'm a Marvel fan. It was entertaining to watch and there was a ton of awesome scenes. As much as I expected my favorite superhero not to be in it [Spider-Man isn't an Avenger] I still really really enjoyed it. I will admit however, I saw this for the heroes.. not just for Scarlett Johansson. Although she certainly made the movie more enjoyable.
So there they are- 5 of my favorite movies/TV shows of 2012! As expected, there is way more that just these 5 that I enjoyed this past year, [I mean who could forget "The Amazing Spider-Man" or the new seasons of Dexter?] but there is no way I could fit them all into one posting. Bring on 2013.. I'll be posting a shit ton more than this year, since I have Fridays off school. [and not as much work; due to being at school] Happy New Years Everyone!
