There are some things we enjoy deeply: like sinking under covers with hot chocolate and a loved one watching an amazing movie together, just having a relaxed evening. And as the movie industry has been advancing at an alarming pace, 3D movies being something ordinary nowadays it is only expectable that the movies that have come out in the past year also have to exceed expectation not only in actor performance but also in special effects and direction. Here are some of 2012’s most interesting movies:
1. Les Miserables
Based on Victor Hugos novel, the 2012 musical begins with Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) being released from prison and creating a new life after breaking parole. The action then unfolds at the center of the French Rebellion while he is trying to look after Cosette, the daughter of a working class girl who became a prostitute to pay her debt. The performance of Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe is breathtaking: this is truly a movie everyone should see.
2. Life of Pi
This is the tale of the boy who on his quest to know God becomes a Buddhist, Muslim, Christian and Jew and whose name explanation takes the viewer into a world of allegory. The story soon unfolds as he is forced to leave India in order to sail with his family over the Atlantic but as the ship sinks he is left on a boat together with an orangutan, a zebra, a hyena and a Bengal tiger. This is a moving story and in the end you are left with the impression that not the story itself is important but the way the story is told.
James Bond is back, and he is more dangerous than ever! Dame Judi Dench does an excellent job in the role of James Bond, and he is truly an incredible addition to the 007 classic adventures. The opening of the movie is kick-ass and pure awesomeness!
4. Hotel Tranylvania
This animated comedy movie has won the hearts of millions of fans. It is about the vampire lord, Count Dracula, and his restful hideaway filled with scary creatures and supernatural beings.

5. The Avengers
In order to appreciate “The Avengers” movie at its true value you must first take into consideration that this movie was inspired from a comic book.
