#BRWC10: 2012 In Film

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC The Avengers - Running Order?

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of BRWC and as we look back the last 10 years in film I have selected six films from 2012 that I consider to still be iconic and influential today.

1. Marvel’s Avengers Assemble

The ultimate ‘Tent Pole’ movie. Joss Whedon’s magnum opus proved that a super-hero team up movie could work (Take note, DC…..) thanks in no small part to the oversight and vision of Kevin Feige and the directors of the MCU Phase 1 films that set up this team-up so perfectly with a solid back story.

2. Frankenweenie



Following his success with The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride, film-making visionary Tim Burton returned to stop motion to make a feature version of his short ‘Frankenweenie’ in a very personal childhood tale with adult sensibilities. This was part of a renaissance in stop motion films alongside the likes of ParaNorman, Coraline and BoxTrolls.

3. The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games

Following the success of Twilight; adaptions of Young Adult Fiction were now big business. Lionsgate rolled the dice with a big budget adaption of Suzanne Collins novels that would go on to generate a further 3 films, making it the 17th highest grossing film franchise of all time (after Pirates of the Caribbean) and boosting the career of the now oscar-winning Jennifer Lawrence. This model of two films followed by a third film in two parts is now replicated by many other franchises.

We hope you're enjoying BRWC. You should check us out on our social channels, subscribe to our newsletter, and tell your friends. BRWC is short for battleroyalewithcheese.

#ChadGetsTheAxe may feel like a generic slasher on the surface, but the more savvy members of the audience will get something more thought provoking than they’d first considered.
