Summer 2012's Best And Worsts

Sep 7, 2012
We're halfway through the year of 2013. This year's summer begins with the massive team-up hit, Marvel's The Avengers, and ends with Christopher Nolan's final chapter to the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. But if there's a whole lot of good movies in this summer movie line-up, there's probably something really bad right in between. Here's my pick.

THE WORST: this are the movies that you don't really need to watch. But if you like this movies, you'll have my permission to die.

Snow White and the Huntsman

This movie should have not been made. I guess it will be better if they do the same thing Mirror, Mirror tried to show, SWATH isn't necessary to be seen if you didn't give a damn on what a good story is.

Dark Shadows

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton has executed a lot of movies and did it well. But not for this one. If you have seen an episode of the original 70s soap opera, it was very silent and had a melodramatic tone to it, it was the perfect genre for Burton instead he made it looked funny and cliched.


How to make millions of dollars as for Michael Bay's theory. Pick an 80s action figure and turn it into a goddamn movie with a lot of explosions. But a 4-year old kid writes a script that can be made in a good movie, a board game they liked to call Battleship. Do I need to explain why this movie sucked?

The Dictator

The premise of this movie looked very funny. I even thought it was another Cohen mockumentary like Bruno or Borat. But if you've seen previews for this movie, don't expect even more, mostly all of the funny memorable scenes here were in the trailer. Nice try 'The Dictator' but I had higher hopes for this movie.

Piranha 3DD

Was people ruining their heads already. Why would they even pay to see this movie. But I get your point if you came because it was a sequel of that crappy 2010 3D movie, but consider yourself an official no-brainer and a pervert if you did liked this movie.

BEST ONES: this movies were the greatest ones, this year's Summer will not be completed without any of theses movies. The films listed below will be in no particular order. 

The Avengers

The dream of every fan boys finally came true. When Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Capt. America finally gets an equal share in one gigantic movie, the result is a fun, hilarious 2 and a half hours of epicness. 'Buffy' creator Joss Whedon did his very best with heart and passion for this movie, thank you master Whedon.

Men In Black III

The suits are back, and brings a successful end to a now called trilogy. Will Smith and Josh Brolin did equally funny in their roles, and this humor in the franchise never gets old.


Ridley Scott gets on board once again to the genre that made him helped become the filmmaker he is now. I still don't get it why people raged about this movie, this sci-fi drama has a lot of attention-to-details you might not recognized. Just watch it again, and you'll know what I mean.

Magic Mike

I'm a straight dude and I enjoyed this movie so well (except the Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey club scenes). This is a lot of men stuffs you might not know, because all you know about this movie is that it's a men-stripping movie. This movie has a lot of drama and Tatum did really well in his biopic.

The Amazing Spider-Man 

Retelling a story that has been shown to many for bout 10 years ago isn't necessary. But this reboot of Spider-Man did delivers very well in showing Spidey's real side and emotions. Andrew Garfield was really good as Peter Parker, even Emma Stone as his love interest, Gwen Stacy.

The Dark Knight Rises

Who would not forget about this movie. This movie is the most suited conclusion to Nolan's well-loved Batman trilogy. Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast did their all best for this one-of-a-kind ending. It has also the best ending I had seen in years. The legacy of this movie and its predecessors will never die.


  • Rock Of Ages - Tom Cruise + 80s rock songs = ROCKING NOSTALGIA FEST!
  • 21 Jump Street - F**k you Science!
  • The Expendables 2 - Van Damme and Norris kicked ass.
  • The Cabin in the Woods - best Horror movie of this Summer.
This Summer has been a good time, especially for those who loves movies. The Fall and Winter movie season will be epic, I started to figure out. Skyfall, Frankenweenie, The Hobbit, Wreck-it Ralph, Lincoln and Django Unchained. Also, it will also the time to celebrate since the Twilight saga will be ending with its final movie this November. 

I will be back for my reviews for The Raid, ParaNorman, and The Campaign.
