Hello there dear listeners and readers! My name is Kevin Sutorius, one of the guest hosts of our Nerds on Film podcast.
When it comes to my favorites of 2012, I could talk all day about all the movies in the top twenty, but I will try to keep it them brief. They are mostly based on personal preference (obviously), but I also added in some consideration from the critics as well, so hopefully, this list can provide some great or entertaining choices for you to see in theaters or at home. You may notice some glaring omissions in this list and that is because either a) they didn’t personally resonate with me or b) I didn’t get to see them. With my brief explanations, I will do my best not to spoil the story for each film, since there may be some of you out there that still haven’t seen them.
Hello again dear listeners and readers. Today will consist of numbers 10 to 6. I hope you enjoy!
*Footnote: Again, here are a few key words that helped me narrow my focus on why certain movies were chosen: Risk, originality, genuine, geeky, beauty, closure, intensity.
10 – John Carter – Obviously in the minority, I found John Carter to be captivating, entertaining and visually stunning. It’s a shame that Disney really mucked-up the marketing surrounding the movie. Not many people know that John Carter is based off of a book, A Princess of Mars, which is an integral story, written back in the early 1900s, that influenced the modern-day genres of sci-fi and fantasy. Plus, it inspired MANY of today’s best writers and directors, not to mention movies like the Star Wars saga. Had the marketing focused on that, I think people’s perspectives might have changed.
