The Wolverine [2013]

Genre: Adventure, Action, Fantasy

Rating: 7/10.

The problem with this movie is it does not have any memorable moments like a Superman movie or a Batman movie. There are a few incredible scenes, but nothing more than that. The Wolverine fan in me has probably rated this a bit high, but its better than the X-Men Origins which came out a few years back.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [2013]

Genre: Adventure, Fantasy

Rating: 8/10.

The movie continues from where it left off in the first part with the dwarfs moving along in their quest towards Erebor. This one is slightly better than the first movie mainly because of Smaug. He’s one of the best CGI characters I’ve seen in a long time. Also, there’s a brilliant and comical fight scene in the river. The ending leaves you waiting for the final part of the trilogy. LoTR fans are surely bound to like this one..

Star Trek Into Darkness [2013]

Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure

Rating: 7/10.

Was a tad disappointed with this because the first movie was damn good, so the expectations were high. Not that its bad. Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant. He owns the movie all the way. The bickering between Kirk & Spock is funny at times. The visuals are brilliant though. But the movie feels kind of a let down in the second half. Lots of cliches. The rest of the crew could have had a little more screen time. Even Cumberbatch could have done with more screen time.

The Amazing Spider-Man [2012]

Genre: Adventure, Action, Fantasy

Rating: 7/10.

Not as good as the original one which came 10 years ago. A totally unnecessary reboot within a span of a decade. Should have waited a bit longer. Andrew Garfield, though, is great as Spiderman. Some might argue that Tobey was better. But still worth a watch to decide who was better as Spiderman.

The Hunger Games [2012]

Genre: Sci-Fi, Action, Adventure

Rating: 7/10.

This movie (or the novel for that matter) is heavily inspired by Battle Royale where people are left to fight for themselves until death until the last person standing is declared the winner. While Battle Royale was a genius and original film, this isn’t too bad either. Good for a watch, just not upto the same level.

Skyfall [2012]

Genre: Action, Crime

Rating: 7/10.

Disappointed with this movie. Maybe I went in with a lot of expectations due to the hype that this movie generated. Didn’t find anything great about it. Better than Quantum of Solace, but I found Casino Royale better than this movie. Javier Bardem plays a gem of a role. He’s proving to be one of the best actors out there who can portray negative roles.

Wreck-It Ralph [2012]

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Rating: 8.5/10.

Superb movie. Disney has come back with a good competition to Pixar. It had been a long time since I saw a good animated movie. Finally, this comes along. A movie about a video game villian who longs to be a hero. When he tries, he puts the whole arcade into chaos. Don’t miss.
