Who Got Made, Who Got Whacked? The 2012 Review: Part 2


At Movie Wiseguys we make things simple. When reviewing movies, on a scale of 1 to 10, if we score it as low as 0 to 5.5 then Tony Montana pops up and Whacks it. If we score it as high as 8 to 10 then its a Made movie. Anything in the middle is just neutral ground. Neutral means there was some redeeming quality to the movie but it probably isn’t anything that you’ll be talking about years and years down the line. It was a slow year at MWG in 2012. I’ll use the excuse of addition to the family, new jobs, and relocation from the east coast to the west coast for the majority of our writers. The second half of the year was our weakest of all time. This is a simple list of the 8 movies we reviewed from July to December divided into three sections with our number grades and who reviewed it for the website. To see Part 1 for January to June’s 30 reviews, click here. If you want to read the full reviews, just click on the movie title. We only put up reviews of new theater releases if we happen to catch them around the date that they were released. Enjoy…
