My 10 best first time watches of 2012
I’ve caught up on a lot of classics this year and after reading Andy’s post I wanted to share the best films that I’ve seen for the first time. I’ve left out 2012 films (just 1 would have made the list) for when I make my Top 50 of 2012.
It’s pretty amazing I haven’t seen some of these until 2012 but better late then never! You can see my all time best list here. Would love any thoughts.
10. Cinderella Man (2005)
A touching movie, Crowe is fantastic. Love a good boxing film!
9. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
I really liked Raiders of the Lost Ark but this one was definitely my favourite. Loved the addition of Connery.
8. American History X (1998)
So intense and gripping.
7. Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995)
Much more enjoyable than Die Hard 2, and almost at the level of the first.
6. The Terminator (1984)
I absolutely adore the synth soundtrack. I’m in the minority who liked this more than Judgement Day.
5. Die Hard (1988)
4. Leon: The Professional (1994)
Geez Natalie Portman was good as a child actress in this one.
3. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
I can’t wait to watch it again. I was mesmerised – now my favourite Kubrick film.
2. RoboCop (1987)
This was one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. Need to check out #2 soon.
1. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
Wow I loved this film, my only A+ grade of the year. Pitt + Blanchett were both brilliant. I got so emotional too. My favourite Fincher film.
What are the best films you’ve seen for the first time this year?
