Famous Monster’s Favorite Film Quotes of 2012

Film Quotes of 2012

2012 was a fantastic year for movies. Films like The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s The Avengers entertained audiences with blockbuster action sequences and the ultimate in childhood wish fulfillment, while movies such as Drew Goddard‘s Cabin in the Woods and Gareth Edward‘s The Raid: Redemption will long be remembered as putting the nail in the coffin of their respective genres.

We saw new films from acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, William Friedkin, Steven Soderbergh, Ben Affleck, Sam Mendes, and Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention the latest offerings from Rian Johnson, Joss Whedon, Richard Linklater, and newcomers Colin Trevorrow, Benh Zeitlin, and Stephen Chbosky.

So many memorable characters – so many great lines delivered by talented actors inhabiting their roles. Here are some of the best (and a few of the worst) film quotes from 2012. Feel free to include your own in the comments! You can also check out my Top 25 Films of 2012 here!

Armond White’s Ever So Absurd Better-Than List Says ‘A Thousand Words’ Is Better Than ‘Argo’

A Thousand Words Image

The headline alone should acknowledge the absurdity that there is even a shred of evidence that proves such a thing, but film critic Armond White believes that A Thousand Words, Eddie Murphy’s flop – and I say that lightly – is indeed better than Ben Affleck’s critically acclaimed Argo.

White is notorious for obliterating highly acclaimed films and praising colossal failures, so seeing him make such comparisons isn’t a total shock. But if you don’t know who he is, well let’s just say that he thinks Resident Evil 5 director Paul W.S. Anderson is better The Master director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

Zero Dark ThirtyZero Dark Thirty
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow
Written by Mark Boal
Starring: Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Mark Duplass
Columbia Pictures
Rated R | 160 Minutes
Release Date: January 11, 2013

“I’m the motherfucker who found this place.” – Maya (Jessica Chastain)

For over a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden.

Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Academy Award-winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for
the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.

As I’m sure you’re aware, Zero Dark Thirty features graphic scenes of enhanced interrogation tactics that were implemented by the Bush administration after 9-11, techniques like waterboarding and sexual humiliation that are illegal under international law.

It seems like many political commentators and CIA officials are worried that, by including the dark side of the government’s hunt for Al Qaeda, Bigelow’s film may give viewers the wrong impression: that the brutal interrogation methods are the reason we located Bin Laden’s compound.

That’s simply not the case and anyone who walks out of Zero Dark Thirty with the impression that it takes a pro-torture stance didn’t pay attention to the intricacies of the narrative. Depiction is not endorsement, and if it was, no artist could ever portray inhuman practices; no author could ever write about them; and no filmmaker could ever explore them.

Famous Monsters 25 Best Films of 2012

“If all serious lyrical poets, composers, painters, and sculptors were forced by law to stop their activities, a rather small fraction of the general public would become aware of the fact and a still smaller fraction would seriously regret it. If the same thing were to happen with the movies, the social consequences would be catastrophic.”Erwin Panofsky, 1934.

2012. 365 Days. 140 Films. 280 Hours. That’s 11.66 days I’ve dedicated this year to watching new releases. Obviously, I haven’t seen every film this year (That’s My Boy, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), but I have seen enough great movies to make the task of creating a Top 10 List a total pain in the ass.

The annual ritual of narrowing down hundreds of titles to just 10 is a cruel but necessary discipline as a film critic. I, however, lack discipline and have found it necessary to cheat. I’ve expanded my Top 10 to include 10 Honorable Mentions (in alphabetical order) and a Top 5 Documentaries list, making for my 25 Best (or Favorite, if you prefer) Films of 2012.

EA To Donate $1 Million To U.S. Vets With ‘Medal Of Honor,’ Osama Bin Laden Movie ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Medal of Honor Warfighter, Zero Dark Thirty Image

Electronic Arts gets bashed quite often in the world of video games, usually due to the reputation they’ve gained as an ultra-greedy company who charges for everything and forces players into doing things like buying their games brand new at the full $59.99 price tag in order to play online…even if you’re not sure it’s a game you’ll even like.

Issues such as these recently scored them the title of Worst Company in America, as voted by consumers, beating out Bank of America for the damaging crown.

EA clearly doesn’t like the title that has been bestowed upon them, and they’ve set out to show that they can step outside of the white collared corporate world they thrive in and be noble as well by committing to donate at least $1 million to America’s veterans.

Meanwhile, Greg puts on his tin foil hat and rants about the new trailer for Zero Dark Thirty, the movie about the Bin Laden assassination, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, and starrng Jessica Chastain.

Later in the show, we take a look at the announcement that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot will be helming the third Bill & Ted movie; and also at the rumors surrounding Ben Affleck possibly being groomed by Warner Brothers to be the director for a Justice League movie.

Teaser Trailer & Images For Kathryn Bigelow’s Seal Team 6 Film ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Zero Dark Thirty Header

Zero Dark Thirty has been kept in the dark for a very long time. None of the cast or crew were able to speak about it and no one really knew what we would expect from the film, other than that it was about the manhunt that led to the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. Now we got our first trailer for the film. Check it out below.

Zero Dark Thirty is the follow up to Kathryn Bigelow’s Academy Award-winning film The Hurt Locker. As mentioned above, the film follows the events that led up to Bin Laden’s death. We only get to see a few glimpses of the characters involved in the process, but the tone is what you would come to expect when watching an intense military film. The trailer doesn’t shed too much light on what we will see in Zero Dark Thirty, even though most of us know what’s going to happen to the terrorist.
