Trying to see more than last year
1. The Dark Knight Rises
    Genuinely sad to finish the movie knowing there won't be more. A satisfying and excellent end to the trilogy.
2. The Avengers
    Just about perfect. Hulk smashed, Ruffalo was the right move and they got Captain America right. More please.
3. The Cabin in the Woods
    Effectively genre busting. Don't read anything before you go.
4. Brave
    Not Pixar's best, but still charming and beautiful to look at.
5. John Carter
    Better than the advertising campaign -- it's a shame we won't get a sequel.
6. Jeff, Who Lives at Home
    An unlikeable Ed Helms is a nice change, with great work from Segel and the rest of the cast.
7. 21 Jump Street
    Better it should be. Channing Tatum is the real story -- in that he's actually funny.
8. The Hunger Games
    An excellent adaptation, but I couldn't shake the feeling that it was a missed opportunity. The production value was lacking.
9. The Grey
    Surprisingly good. Europeans should be happy Liam Neeson took a break from killing them to go after wolves.
10. This Means War
    Cast is enjoyable, but there's something missing. Feels like too many studio notes dumbed it down.
11. Wanderlust
    Amusing but toothless. I expect better considering the talent involved.
12. The Pirates! Band of Misfits
    Enjoyable if ultimately harmless.
