Found December 26, 2012 on The Nosebleeds:
As 2012 wraps up, it’s only appropriate to take a look back at some of the very best the movies had to offer us. With that said, we present for your consideration, ‘The Nosebleeds Year in Movies,’ in which we’ve offered up nominees  for several categories, including Best Movie, Best Blockbuster, and Best Villain. So scroll through, choose your favorites, and be sure to vote at the bottom of the page. BEST MOVIE ‘Argo’ ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ ‘Life of Pi’ ‘Lincoln’ ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ ‘Django Unchained’ ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ BEST BLOCKBUSTER ‘The Avengers’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ ‘Skyfall’ ‘The Hunger Games’ ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ BEST ACTOR Daniel Day-Lewis — ‘Lincoln’ Bradley Cooper — ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Joseph Gordon-Levitt — ‘Looper’ Denzel Washington — ‘Flight’ Jamie Foxx — ‘Django Unchained’ BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR Leonardo DiCaprio — ‘Django Unchained’ Tommy Lee Jones — ‘Lincoln’ Javier Bardem — ‘Skyfall’ Robert De Niro — ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ BEST ACTRESS Jessica Chastain — ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Amy Adams — ‘Trouble With the Curve’ Jennifer Lawrence — ‘The Hunger Games’ Noomi Rapace — ‘Prometheus’ BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS Jennifer Lawrence — Silver Linings Playbook Sally Field — Lincoln Judi Dench — Skyfall Emily Blunt — Looper Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ BEST ACTION MOVIE ‘The Avengers’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ ‘Skyfall’ ‘The Raid: Redemption’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ ‘End of Watch’ ‘Safe House’ BEST COMEDY ’21 Jump Street’ ‘Ted’ ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ ‘This is 40′ ‘Project X’ BEST HORROR MOVIE ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ ‘Paranormal Activity 4′ ‘Sinister’ ‘The Possession’ BEST ANIMATED MOVIE ‘Brave’ ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ ‘ParaNorman’ ‘Rise of the Guardians’ ‘Frankenweenie’ BEST VILLAIN Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candy — ‘Django Unchained’ Javier Bardem as Silva — ‘Skyfall’ Tom Hardy as Bane — ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Guy Pearce as Charlie Rakes — ‘Lawless’ BEST ACTION/FIGHT SEQUENCE Final battle from ‘The Avengers’ The team finally comes together as a portal to another world opens and the Chitauri army is unleashed on New York City in what has easily been the best action sequence of any Marvel film to date. Between the revolving shot of the heroes assembled, Captain America ordering The Hulk to smash, and one of the best long shots in recent memory that depicts all of the heroes working together, this entire sequence was flat-out brilliant and incredibly exciting. The meth lab fight from ‘The Raid’ Honestly, you could pick any fight/shooting sequence from ‘The Raid’ and it would deserve to be on this list. In many ways, ‘The Raid’ raised the bar for stylized fight/action choreography in film with the characters unleashing a dizzying array of punches, kicks, blocks, throws, and everything else imaginable. The meth lab sequence was great, as it incorporated all of the elements of the room and some great hand-t0-hand takedowns. (Video not on YouTube. Behind the scenes clip here.) Ryan Reynolds vs. Joel Kinnaman from ‘Safe House’ Ryan Reynolds thought he was almost in the clear delivering Denzel Washington to another safe house towards the end of ‘Safe House,’ only to get attacked suddenly by Kinnaman. Credit is due for the length of the fight, the choreography, and the camera work. The pair use the layout of the house very well and Reynolds sustains significant damage before coming out on top. The opening train sequence from ‘Skyfall’ Overall I was somewhat letdown by the action sequences in ‘Skyfall,’ aside from the opening sequence that saw Bond launch himself off of a dirt bike onto a train, tear the back of the train open with an excavator, leap onto said train (fixing his cuff links as he lands in classic Bond fashion), and proceed to go blow-for-blow with his target on top of the locomotive. Bond probably would have had the guy in the end, but unfortunately Eve was a crummy shot and sent him flying from the train into the river below. Escaping from the goblin cave from ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ The escape from the goblin cave was one of the best scenes in the entire 2 hour and 50 minutes of the movie. The company of dwarves face a near death from the goblin king, but Gandalf once again saves the day and leads the party along the rickety bridge path out of the mountain. This scene was brillantly filmed using cameras rolling in all different directions that capture thousands of nasty goblins baring down on the dwarves in all different directions. This scene has Peter Jackson written all over it due to its striking resemblance to the orc cave in The Fellowship. Once again he doesnt fail to impress. The Ballot: Vote Now!
