When I found out that "Zero Dark Thirty" was nominated for a Best Picture at the Oscar's this year. I was not surprised because everyone has been raving about it. After finally seeing the film I can see why everyone loved it! "Zero Dark Thirty" is a truly amazing film. If you have been living in a cave for the past year, "Zero Dark Thirty" is based on the true story of finding and killing Osama Bin Laden.
The movie begins with a black screen and we overhear some of the 9/11 emergency phone calls. I found that to be a very effective and emotional way to start the film. The whole movie follows Maya (Jessica Chastain), who is leading the hunt to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Bin Laden. But finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy S.E.A.L team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is. As most of you probably know this movie is quite controversial because of some of its depictions of torture. Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is, the scenes were nothing WAY to extreme like some people were claiming.

Well 2012 is over! Now were moving into 2013! Here are some movies this year I am really looking forward too! If you couldn't already tell by the picture above, "Man of Steel" is my most anticapated of 2013! It looks like another amazing DC Comics Film. I can't wait to see it. Here are some other movies I'm really looking forward too! They are in no specific order.
