1. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is everything that I hoped it would be and more. But Nolan took his time to craft the conclusion to his trilogy and brought us a natural end to an incredible series.
2. Simply put, ARGO is a stunner. From the brilliant opening sequence to the final few frames – it kept everyone on the edge of their seats.
3. Avengers; while not perfect, delivers on all fronts and gives us one of the best final action sequence you could hope for in a super hero ensemble.
4. Life of PI was a book many considered unfilmable. I also thought how one would keep me entertained till the end, considering that the majority of the book is about a teen boy trapped on a lifeboat with a tiger. But Ang Lee makes it fascinating and so stunning to look at.
5. Prometheus delivers a sci-fi experience and story that is nearly unmatched in a modern movie theater experience. Its connection to the “Alien” series films is, from time to time awkwardly handled.
