The Three Best Films of 2012

Dredddredd-poster

The best film of 2012 went somewhat overlooked. Dredd delivered everything it promised it would, and in abundance – colourful characters, bucket loads of blood and violence and a stripped down story which was compact, punchy and thoroughly entertaining.

It genuinely is like Die Hard in space! Guy Pearce is a revelation as the buff, fast-tongued super-cop tasked with saving the President’s daughter from a bunch of released convicts on a floating prison. Joseph Gilgun (Woody from This is England) turns in a truly terrifying performsnce as one of the deranged cons.

Joss Whedon pulled it off again with the truly original Cabin in the Woods. A genre bending, thrill ride which doesn’t take itself too seriously, it will be used as a landmark in the study of contemporary teen-horror for many years.

I am an avid film enthusiast with a passion for creative writing. My favourite things in life are writing about; film, popular culture and current affairs; watching films and looking at penguins. One day I hope to be getting paid more than I deserve for doing all of these professionally (not the penguin part - that will still be a hobby). View all posts by thenumbereightytwo
