I’ll get around to a Top 10 Best list in the next few days, but I got inspired on this and finished it first. So you get this now. Here’s a look at the highs and lows that were this 2012 movie season.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in “Marvel’s The Avengers.”
Best 12 months for a rising star – Chris Hemsworth. From “The Cabin in the Woods” to “Marvel’s The Avengers” to “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Hemsworth had a year that would be a career for some actors. Even when he’s involved in a turd like “Red Dawn,” he shrugs it off and gets to work on sequels for “Thor,” “The Avengers 2” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.” We should all have such stable career outlooks.

Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel star in Relativity Media’s “Safe Haven.”
Fresh off the disappointing summer musical “Rock of Ages,” Julianne Hough moves to a safer genre — romance.
She stars in “Safe Haven,” where she plays a woman with a secret (don’t they all?) who comes to South Carolina and quickly strikes a friendship with a young widower (Josh Duhamel, an actor I really like despite his appearances in all three “Transformers” movies) and is forced to deal with her mysterious past.

Prometheus – Of all the summer movies, “Prometheus” easily had the best trailer. You couldn’t figure out what the heck was happening, but darn it if that haunting music with that alarm-like clanging and quick-cut images raised my interest in the movie to kinda intrigued to CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE PROMETHEUS!!!!.
A prequel of sorts to “Alien” where explorers are seeking mankind’s origin seemed like a can’t miss prospect and lock for one of the summer’s best. More

If you’re a child of the 80s and fondly remember the era of poofy hair, eyeliner and a time when MTV actually played music videos, “Rock of Ages” will no doubt tug at your nostalgic chords as you watch some of Hollywood’s biggest stars singing along to Bon Jovi, Journey and Twisted Sister.
But for all the big names, expertly choreographed song and dance numbers and embarrassingly familiar fashion, there’s little more to “Rock of Ages” than a glorified karaoke night that hardly warrants putting your lighters up. More
