1. The Vow (2012)
Not my usual thing, but sometimes I like a sappy love story, and if nothing else Rachel McAdams is so pretty that I can spend the whole time being amazed by her.

Denzel Washington. 'Nough said.

3. Gone (2012)
I heard from a friend it wasn't worth seeing in theaters so I'll probably wait to see it on netflix.

6. Brave (2012)
I'm really interested in this movie. I'm ready for a kick-ass princess. Hopefully they do it right.

7. Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
I think this movie is taking itself way to seriously, and I hate Kristen Stewart with a passion, but I think Charlize looks awesome and I'm interested in where they're going to take it.

8. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
Possibly the one I'm most excited for. LotR is my favorite series of all time and I'm really excited to see Martin Freeman (dr. Watson) as Bilbo.

10. The Bourne Legacy (2012)
Not sure how this is going to work out, but I love Jeremy Renner.

Jeremy was utter perfection, but the fight scenes were over too quickly to really enjoy them and the end was a little anti-climactic. But overall a good contribution to the franchise. Can we have one where they team up now?

11. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

I'm not a Batman fan, let's just start out by saying that. I liked BB pretty good but mostly cause of the cast not the story. Then the second one was mostly good because of Heath Ledger, let's just be honest. This one just seemed mopey. Don't get me wrong, Tom Hardy was scary but without seeing the face you lose alot of his charisma. And Anne Hathaway was wasted potential since she didn't get to fight very much. Joseph was great, saving grace of the movie as was the little peak of Scarecrow. However I found the plot to be exceedingly slow and predictable. Maybe that's just me. Everyone else I know loved it. It just wasn't all it was hyped up to be to me.

12. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Not really sure about this one, but I'll give it a chance.

I love the original trilogy with Tobey Maguire so it feels a little like cheating that I loved this as much as I did. I saw it in 3D (my first time) and it was very well done. Andrew Garfield was perfect. Emma Stone was adorable. It was perfect in every way I could have wanted it to be, except for the snippet in the credits. Was there a point to that?

13. Rock of Ages (2012)
I know I'm in the minority here, but I LOVED it. Saw it more than once already. It was exactly what I expected it to be. Just cheesy entertaining musical fun. And Diego Boneta was perfection.

14. The Avengers (2012)
Another fangirl squealer. I'm so excited for this one.

It was so much better than I ever thought it could be. I'm now officially obsessed with Tom Hiddleston.

15. Mirror Mirror (2012)
The more exciting Snow White movie of the year, I'm hoping for a funny and intriguing new take on the classic.

My review
Sometimes a movie is just a familiar tale that we all know and love but with a twist. Mirror Mirror isn't going to change anyone's life. It isn't the next great classic. But it's good clean fun. It's beautiful. The costumes were perfect. The dwarves were funny. Snow White was both gorgeous and intelligent. The Queen was evil. The Prince was charming. There aren't really any surprises here. It doesn't take itself too seriously or try to be anything more than what it is; a fairy tale. But I teared up at the moving part and left with a smile on my face and sometimes that's all you want from a movie.

16. The Hunger Games (2012)
If only I could fangirl squeal through the internet.

The movie was so much better than I expected. The cast was perfect, the setting was perfect, what they added was perfect. It's the first time I've left the theater after a book adaptation and really felt they did it justice.

17. This Means War (2012)
Frivilous and silly but hopefully a good entertaining time.

I've now seen and actually liked this movie alot. I know it's predictable but what rom-com isn't? And the 2 leads, mostly Chris Pine, were thoroughly charming.

18. Underworld: Awakening (2012)
I've seen it and it wasn't that good but it wasn't bad either. If only there was some plot mixed in with those shots of Selene being bamf and sexy.
