2012 nappyafro Awards: Top Movies of the Year

2012 Movies

Count this as the 4th time I’ve talked about my favorite movies of the year on nappyafro. But instead of just listing what movies I watched in 2012, this go around I’ll also rank my Top 10 for 2012 (And of course say a few things about each). As for what movies I did see last year:

  • I saw a total of 161 movies in 2012: I know this because I make a note of every movie I watch via Watching Movies & Shit. Although, I don’t include all those ESPN & WWE documentaries I constantly watch.
  • Only 66 of those movies actually came out in 2012: Way down from the 104 movies I watched in 2011. Blame it on me getting older.
  • Movies I wanted to see but didn’t: The Master, The Life Of Pi, Django Unchained (Added to the list), Wreck-It Ralph, Paranormal Activity 4, The We And The I, Holy Motors, & Sinister.

As always, please list your top movies for 2012 in the comments section or just call all of my movie picks stupid. It’s up to you.

Young Barry White. The geek out of the bunch. He is also Jay-Z’s biggest fan. He looks like your cousin from the burbs. He is “Pro Black” (not anti-white, just “Pro Black”). Probably the wittiest out of the bunch. It is said that he got fired from the same job three times.

    End of Watch was crazy and even hilarious. Glad I watched that over The Man With The Iron Fists that day.

    • B-Easy

      I wanted ‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ to be great. It just wasn’t that good.

      • This Guy

        Yep.

    • P-Body

      Thanks for spoiling it for me. So “The Man With The Iron Fist” Is trash? Damn all that hype

    Only 2 movies from my top 10 list made it onto here: http://thoughtsofashreveporter.blogspot.com/2012/12/favorite-movies-of-2012.html

    • B-Easy

      Your list is good too. Although, I think ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ came out in 2011.

      • thatboyshortt318

        In the U.K. it came out in 2011. For America, it came out in January.

    Looper was a good ass movie, Django was dope (I’ve seen it twice in the theaters)..Flight was one of Denzel’s best performances..not too mention the naked mexican chick from My Name Is Earl at the beginning of that movie, The man with the Iron FIsts had so much potential..but RZA didn’t seem to know what direction he wanted to go with it..Alter-Ego’s was a weird little comedy about super-heroes..I didn’t expect too enjoy Para-Norman seeing as how it’s a kids movie and wutnot, but the story in that was good as hell also..i hated Dark Knight RIses, Bane wasn’t a better villian than Joker..That’s My Boy was a step-up for Adam Sandler after that terrible Jack & Jill movie, but a step-down after he’s been in shit like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore..The Imposter was pretty trippy too see how far that dude was willing to take that Lie..Why Stop Now was pretty sucky..i mean Tracy Morgan is not very convincing as a “Gangster”..

    Being a Judd Apatow fan, i decided to watch This is 40 and I’ll never get that 2 hours of my life back..American Reunion sucked (the damn american pie series should have ended after the 3rd one)..Project X was very cheesy (not in a good way)..and Sacha Baren Cohen hasn’t had any good movies since Borat..my point being that The Dictator sucked

  • thewirefan

    The Avengers bored me..I just don’t see how why the hell Captain America is considered a super-hero..he’s shit without that damn suit..The Bay was a good horror movie where niggas ate fish infected with parasites and it began to eat ppl from the inside-out..and I finally got too see Snow On tha Bluff last year (even though I’ve known about it ever since you guys posted about it back in 2011)

      Captain America doesn’t need the suit, hes a genetically engineered super soldier. And if you didn’t know, dudes a beast. Him and thor had a boxing match and caps skill was able to put thors strength at a standstill and it ended in a tie, his adamantium shield is also indestructible not to mention he is a master of many martial arts. He’s fought in many wars including ww2 and vietnam. Did i mention thors a god? yeah, dont fuck with cap. as for the movie, i was pissed loki was the villian, i mean fuck they couldve used galactus, dr. doom, the skrulls and the krees. anyone except fucking loki.
