3) Ted This was one of the funniest movies I've seen in years. If you haven't seen this shame on you. The writing was amazing, the CGI effects on Ted were top notch, it was just great all around. Amazingly the concept on the talking teddy bear begins to take a back seat in your mind as you watch it and part of you just thinks of Ted and his buddy John as two guys talking, then some gag reminds you this is a talking Teddy bear and its just that much funnier. Kind of like the times Brian actually acts like a dog on Family Guy. This movie is destined to join the ranks of Caddy Shack and Animal House as an all time classic comedy.
2) The Cabin in the Woods There isn't really much I can say about this movie without spoiling a lot of plot points. This movie isn't really a strict horror so much as it's a horror comedy. It's not only a satire of the horror genre but also kind of a love letter to it. In fact co-writer Joss Whedon said it was "basically a very loving hate letter" to the horror genre. Any horror fan must see this movie.
1) Avengers Yes this was, by far, my favorite movie, not just this year, but in years. It still amazes me this movie even came together and got made, let alone that it was also a damn good movie. The existence of this movie is proof that God not only loves me, but also likes me. Brings a tear to my eye.
So there you have it, my 5 favorite movies this year. Don't agree? Well then make your own damn list.
