The Academy Awards ceremony delivers the highest praise for the best in film. One of the most sought after awards, the Best Picture award, only received nine nominations this year. Among those nominations, none of the films became blockbusters. In the spirit of the Best Picture award, this week, Mines at Mines asks, “What was your favorite movie from the past year?”
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” It was not a stereotypical blockbuster movie and was not a feel-good movie like something from Disney and Pixar.
“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” It had a good plot and followed the other movies pretty well. The action was good too.
Definitely “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.” Unusually, the sequel was better than the first one. There was a lot of suspense and the ending was a surprise, but one that looking back made sense.
I enjoyed “Immortals.” The incorporation of Greek mythology made the movie interesting, and the action and effects were great too.
