What a year for film. We were given some of the most anticipated films in, probably all of film history. It also had a series of record breaking films, despite the box office take, overall, being disappointing. It was an especially nerd friendly year with titles like, The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, The Hobbit, and Ridley Scott's kind of Alien prequel Prometheus. As well as films from Oscar winners Steven Spielberg, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Zemekis. I had a lot of fun at the movies this year. I laughed, I cried, I cheered, I was puzzled by Silent House. All the great emotions that people experience at the movies. So today Im going to be counting down my top 10 films of the year. This is an unbiased list and just my personal preference, so if you disagree, whatever, this is my list and you can make your own. Granted there were a few movies this year that I didn't get around to seeing, like Anna Karenina and Zero Dark Thirty, so come a month from now, my list may change. But probably not.
Shall we begin?
10)Silver Linings Playbook
Yea, it was a bit melodramatic and a bit predictable but the lead characters were so original and charming and the performances were so impressive from everybody that this movie easily landed in this slot edging out Django. Sorry QT. It was funny, it was touching and the characters were likable. In my top ten, but not as deserving of an oscar nod as others here.
There was so much hype leading up to this movie and nobody's mind was at ease. This movie easily could have been a disaster, yet it surpassed all expectation and became one of the surprise hits of the year. Not just because of its dazzling action and special effects, but because of the intelligence in the script. Its one of those action films that surprises you with the story. The story itself was a bit straight forward, but the all the characters, though super human, were all human. The movie is great because of its direction, but is perfect because of its writing. All of the actors in this movie personified each of their respective roles in the best possible way and I will be truly sad when one of these actors stops playing that role.
8)Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World:
Perhaps my favorite apocalypse film of all time. This was easily my favorite film of the summer and rightfully so deserves to be on any best of list. This felt like a much more realistic interpretation of what would happen if a meteor was headed for earth. Not everybody is going to party and go crazy. There are just so many people that are unfulfilled with life that still refuse to live even when life is just about to end. This is both a great tale of friendship and a fantastic love story wrapped up in a nice little road trip.
Now we're starting to get dirty
The science fiction opus of the year. This was both a killer action film and a breath of fresh air in terms of sci-fi. The concept is realitivly simple but Rian Johnson's writing really breathes life into an area that could really turn stale in the worst way. It is really easy to complicate time travel and have it not make sense, but the film even subtley tells the audience to not think too hard on it which is both a great idea and hilarious. Especially in this day and age when everybody has to hate everything. The action is thrilling, and JGL is the man. It also features one of the most brutal torture scenes in recent history
Definitely the most bizarre film of the year. And arguably the most brutal. This film is not for anyone with a weak stomach, but I am a creepy weirdo, so I embrace films like this. I wish more film makers/studios would take risks and make films that are as dark and twisted as this one. But for all of it darkness, it is equally funny. This is what a dark film should be. Its got some really fucked up shit, and enough laughs to go along with it, making it tasteful as a work of art.
Because I can't enough of Paul Dano...
Ruby Sparks is the story of love and how unpredictable, irrational and how magical love actually is.
Not only is Ruby Sparks the kind of movie that you fall in love with, but it makes you want to fall in love. There weren't many fantasy films this year, and although not traditionally what you would expect from a fantasy film, but its still always welcome to see fantasy being made in Hollywood. This is also the only film this year that I went out and purchased.
4)Sleepwalk With Me:
It takes a lot for a comedy film to be on my top 10, but this wasn't your average comedy. The film is shot documentary style and is intersliced between the narrative and Mike Birbiglia telling the story from his car. This is both a funny story and an unbelievable tale of triumph through adversity, and his adversity is sleepwalking. The scenarios that the sleepwalking gets him into, you couldn't make up. One of the scenarios is my favorite scene of the year. I give this all the more praise because I really don't like endorsing comedians and this film works as both a comedy story and a drama about a man chasing his dream.
Top 3. Are you getting chills yet?
Nothing more to say (see my previous review)
Where do I begin? As a lifelong Bond fan, I feel like this was a love letter to me and my kin. It contained everything that a Bond film should be known for. Fast paced action, neat spy work, sexy dames, cool cars, and an intimidating bleached blond villain. It even features the return of Q and some other fun little easter eggs. But it was also a competent and beautifully shot spy thriller with some clever dialogue and fantastic performances from Daniel Craig and (a scene stealing) Javier Bardem. This is how a Bond anniversary should be celebrated and it allows me to forgive the mistake of Die Another Day. The song is classic Bond and the tone is incredibly modern and bleak in this post 9/11 world, with a tight and very personal plot. It almost made it to my number 1, but my number 1 was too good to not steal this spot.
1)The Perks Of Being A Wallflower:
Beautiful script, beautiful score, beautifully shot and beautiful characters. In a year that was largely inhabited with tales of high school, this was easily the best introspect into it. Its not all bullies and parties, but given the right situation, everybody becomes a villain. The story is about a lonely kid who makes friends with a group of social oddities who are just like everybody else in their own way, and they show the boy how to live and have fun. Its a perfect look at friendship, sexual discrimination, love and loneliness. This is honestly what I look for in a film. Some of you reading this may have a different favorite film of the year, but this is just my opinion. Unfortunately I couldn't put every movie on this list. So honorable mentions go to The Dark Knight Returns Part 1, Django Unchained, 21 Jump Street, Robot and Frank, The Raid and Chronicle. If you haven't seen any of these films, go out and give them a look see, and don't forget to buy Dredd. I can't wait for next year because there are a lot of great films that need to be watched and I am just the man for the job

And All Through The House
How do you like your Christmas? A little dark? A little Morbid? How about twistedly humorous? Maybe with some delightful Christmas music? If all of the above, then this is the one for you. This one here is a combo; both Christmas and horror. And its actually the best piece of fiction that combines the 2.The plot is that a woman murders her husband on Christmas eve, and at the same time a psychopath escapes from a mental asylum, dressed as Santa and begins killing women, so the wife can't call the cops to help her and has to deal with the murderer by herself. It has all the staples of a typical slasher film, but everything is presented in a fun manner. Its a blast! The killer (played by Larry Drake) is terrifying and hilarious at the same time. Its always nice to see Santa going crazy.
This next one is kind of a cheat, because its not technically a Christmas episode, but it was originally aired in December. Fuck you, it has snow, so that makes it count
This one is a no brainer, and is easily one of the best episodes in the entire Simpson catalog. Homer buys a plow to start a plow business to pay for the plow. Classic Homer. But Homer gains quick success and competition comes in the form of his best friend Barney, who becomes even more beloved than Homer. It has appropriately used celebrity guests, unlike later seasons which just had celebrities shoe horned in for the sake of filling out the run time. This episode has some of the best lines in the series, and almost every scene has a memorable quote. And like all early episodes of the Simpsons, Homer learns a valuable lesson in the end. It makes me feel warm every time I watch it. Mostly because I can't stop laughing. Probably the most accessible Christmas episode on this list, so pop this in whenever you get the chance.
As much as I didn't want to include 2 episodes from one show on the same list, I can consider these 2 different shows because of the change in tone and art direction.
3) Batman: The Animated Series
Christmas With The Joker
This show combines some of everybody's favorite things. Batman, The Joker, and murder. All of this in a nice little Christmas package. Joker escapes from Arkham and has a plan to kill a lot of people, like always, but Batman doesn't know what he is planning and is certain doom is on the rise. Robin is trying to get Batman to watch It's a Wonderful Life with him, but Batman is skeptical to watch a movie with a happy ending. But of course, Batman saves the day, kicks Joker's ass and ends up watching and liking It's a Wonderful Life (a film that brilliantly mirrors Batman's own life). And that wasn't a spoiler, it's fucking batman. How can he lose? This episode features some of the best writing in an animated program, and its almost too mature for the children it was aimed at. But I would put this baby on over most movies.
2) The New Adventures Of Batman
|Montoya and Bullock|
And now for my favorite Christmas special of all time. But before that I will give some honorable mentions.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (only because it isn't actually a tv show), Xmas story from Futurama and Have yourself a Morlock Little Christmas from Xmen. I just didn't have room for these because I wanted to keep the list relatively short
1) The X-Files
|Maurice and Lyda|
This is just the best Christmas special ever. It has everything, without feeling too crammed, but its also a nice little ghost story that never feels like its trying to scare you. The plot is that Mulder brings Scully to a supposedly haunted house on Christmas eve. Its very whimsical and features 2 very lighthearted performance from Ed Asner and Lily Tomlin as the ghosts that haunt the house. The direction (show creator Chris Carter) is very quirky and almost feels like something Wes Anderson would concoct. The point of the whole episode is to show how lonely Mulder is to drag Scully out to a haunted house (something Scully doesn't believe in) on Christmas eve, and just how lonely Scully is for agreeing to meet him there. The two get trapped in the house while the ghost's mess with them and just play around making the agents feel like they are in danger, and all the while nobody knows quite what is real. Its one of the few episodes that doesn't take itself seriously, yet offers some pretty strong character development. The episode ends with the ghosts holding hands and reminiscing about how they almost got them, and with Mulder and Scully exchanging gifts, even though the 2 agreed not to. It shows how far they have both come with each other and how strong their friendship has become. This is the only episode on this list that I wish was a feature film. I could have watched this for days. I wanted to dedicate this whole review to just this episode, but I figured that you didn't want to read an orgasm in text form.
So that's my list. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Whatever emotion you feel for Ramadan, and fuck you, because you don't celebrate Kwanzaa

Because I lacked for a while, I decided to give you a 2 in one, today, The Girls(s?) With The Dragon Tattoo. I'm just going to review the story and the what I liked about each version, which one I like more. Essentially, both versions of the film have the same narrative structure, which basically renders the remake pointless. But what we have here is the same story in the hands of 2 different directors, and if anything, is a very interesting experiment. The 2004 Exorcist prequel had a very similar situation, (1 story, 2 directors) and that ended up being a disaster, while both versions of this film are competent and tense thrillers. A man is unraveling a 40 year old mystery and a young woman, who is a mystery in itself, assists him. Both of the main characters are flawed and broken in there own way. Mikael Blomkvist, is accused of libel and loses his wages and his reputation, and Lisbeth Salander is an angry, violent, delinquent with a penchant for junk food and narcotics. While flawed, both of them are brilliant. Mikael is an outstanding journalist, and Lisbeth is a genius hacker with a photographic memory. What I really want to focus on here is the similarities/differences between the 2 films. The 2 films really are the exact same story, just a different story teller. All the major plot points are in both films, so basically the only real differences are technical and performances. I will just get this out of the way right now, I think the remake is better than the original in almost every way. There were a few exceptions that I will get to later, but overall, the cinematography was better, the lighting was better, the editing was among the best editing in a film I have seen, the overall performances were better, the unconventional score was more complimentary to the movie, and the direction was tighter. Just from the way it opens, I was more sucked into the film than the original. The original opens with a boring photo of a flower, while I understand that the photo ignites the mystery that sets the plot into motion, the intense credits with the oil covered woman is just a more exciting way to start a movie. The only thing that I liked more about the original was the girl with the dragon tattoo, Lisbeth Salander, play by the amazingly gorgeous Noomi Repace. Rooney Mara, was very good in the role, but I just liked Repace better. She came off more intense and troubled, as opposed to Mara, who felt strangely robotic. I really wouldn't want to fight Repace.
Michael Nyqvist plays Blomkvist in the original, whereas Daniel Craig plays Blomkvist in the remake. I found Daniel Craig a much more likable lead, with more personality and better chemistry with his opposite. David Fincher is just one of the best directors in the game today, and this story, at least in my opinion, is best told through his eyes. The original, while a great story, is just that, a great story. The film is nothing special apart from the performance from Repace, whereas the remake is a visual splendor. Unfortunately, the dawn of the hipsters have somewhat tarnished the opinions of people that watch cinema and feel compelled to like the original better, because "it came first". Honestly, the rape scene in the original is not more brutal. Getting brutally buttfucked is far more severe than getting punched in the head, you stupid assholes. If you have the chance to see one version of this movie, do not listen to the person who says to watch the original. This remake is a rare exception to the rule of remakes, and is a far superior film. One performance can not justify an entire film, especially one with a run time of almost 3 hours. I recommend both films, but the David Fincher version is just far better. It is not only one of the best films of 2011, (third best behind Take Shelter and Shame) but it is one of the tightest, lean and fascinating of the last few decades. Its just a shame that this version didn't come first so its reputation is damaged because of what it had to follow. And for you James Bond fans out there, here is a little James Bond trivia: Daniel Craig plays James Bond, currently, where Steven Berkoff, who played Dirch Frode in the Fincher Girl With... played General Orlov in Octopussy. So there's another reason why its better. So go check it out if you haven't, especially since its Christmas.
Oh, and another reason why its better, no fucking reading

Here's another Christmas film for you. A childhood favorite of mine (and probably yours too), Steven Spielberg's Hook. Hook is very interesting to me, because it has some incredibly interesting aspects of the psychology of Peter Pan, but it is also a kids movie, so the filmmakers decided not to get to deep in the subject matter. There is actually only one thing that I don't like about this movie, (other than Julia Roberts, obviously) but I'll get more into that later. This film may be hard for me to critique, because its one of the few movies that I have been watching, literally, my whole life, so there is a lot of sentimental value, but it was pretty critically panned on its initial release. So I will go into the pros and cons, one by one, and I will be completely honest about everything.
|Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins|
1) The visual aspect: Everything visually about this film is top notch (and I don't just mean the special effects). The costumes and the production designs are all quite the spectacle. They are some of the best looking pirates in cinema, I have ever seen, and the ship looks incredible. The pirates aren't the only costumes that looked good, the lost boys look great as well. They are dirty and gritty, yet, with a sense of playfulness. My favorite set is the flowers that smell Peter, for the clever irony and because of the practical effects. Everything in Neverland is a visual splendor, from the exotic island setting with great looking mermaids, to the decrepit and shoddy camp where the lost boys dwell. Its also a plus how good Dustin Hoffman looks as the titular character.
3) The character development of Peter Pan: This film asks a pretty interesting question; What would happen if Peter Pan grew up? Peter Pan was the eternally young leader of the lost boys, who refused to grow up and battle grown ups, who on Neverland became Pirates. Now he is a middle aged asshole, who is married to his job, can't commit to his children fully, and has an implied drinking problem. He has become distant, both physically and emotionally, from Wendy, his former love and guardian (by means of foster care), because he is subconsciously repressing the memories of his childhood because adults don't want to be lost boys. So the whole plot is basically him remembering to become Peter Pan again just so he can battle Hook and save his kids. The whole time he is incredibly reluctant to down the green tights and crow again, because he can't, or rather doesn't want to, believe that any of it is real. The film offers some interesting emotional insight into the psychology of the character by giving him a tragic (somewhat) back story, as well as a fear of death, which results in him refusing to grow up. Once he remembers that he was Peter Pan, he refers to full on child mode, just like the film Jack, but soon after he realizes his mission, he straightens out and becomes Peter Pan in spirit and Peter Banning in mind.
4) The Music: Spielberg + John Williams = enough said
Now for the cons.
1) The third act: This is where things get ridiculous. After a pretty adult build up, the film slips into children's fare. Which is a giant disappointment because I think the first 2 acts are actually very good. Just the fact that pirates with guns and swords are losing in physical combat to a bunch of kids with paint and eggs. I understand that Rufio dies to give some vulnerability to the lost boys, but a few more casualties might have made me care a bit more in the final act. But that is almost impossible in a children's film, so there is really
All in all, the film is actually a pretty good film, filled with great visuals, music, and acting, but is disjointed by an abrupt and clumsy third act. Its still a fun film and I really enjoy the final shot. It makes me look forward to another sunrise. So, if you haven't seen it in a while give it another go, and if you didn't like it when it came out, you probably wont enjoy it now. But it shows an adult where the line is crossed from being too serious and for kids to show some responsibility and grow up, but just not so fast
|The clerk at the motel answers the bell naked|
The skiers are all one dimensional stereotypes and the whole film is padded with nudity, sex and partying. Its delicious, delicious cheese, and I can't get enough of it. The soundtrack is actually really good, which is an actual compliment. The film stars Patrick Houser as the hot shot young skier, and David Naughton ( An American Werewolf in London) as the burnt out and former legend, and a bunch of no name assholes. Its a film that gladly deserves the genre title, "Boy I Miss The 80s" and few other films are as gratuitous and over the top as this. Its as predictable as they come, and it has no bones about it. Its fucking stupid, cheesy, unrealistic, but man is it fun. Its perfect schlock, and its as good as they come. I rarely recommend a "so bad that its good" but this is a rare exception. Go check it out. And worst case scenario, you get to see lots of tits.

After years of waiting, its finally time to return to Middle Earth. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the last fanboy release of 2012, and like The Dark Knight Rises, was it worth the wait? Yes and No. The overall film experience was incredibly enjoyable. The film is always pleasing to look at, the acting was superb, and it was just nice returning the world that Peter Jackson first brought us to in 2001. In all honesty, my favorite parts of the film were the parts with the characters from The Lord Of The Rings. The meeting with Elrond, Saruman and Galadriel, the riddle scene with Gollum, but my favorite scene was in the beginning, where Ian Holm and Elijah Wood (Bilbo and Frodo respectively) are in Bagend and Bilbo is recounting, to himself, the events that made him a legend and begins writing his book. An overwhelming rush of nostalgia came crashing through and tears fell from my eyes. It felt great coming back. But this, unfortunately, soon became a running theme throughout the film, as I really felt a severe case of the "been-there-done-that". While I said the visuals were top notch, the CG is still stuck back in 2001. I have never been a fan of CG, and not to say that it is shitty, but I'm not wowed like I should be, like I was when I first saw Fellowship. The CG backgrounds were nice, just the creatures were a little too fake looking. This is, however, a minor complaint, because of my personal preference, and because I love fantasy films, which have all, but seemingly, disappeared from mainstream Hollywood films. The only CG that I actually really liked was the fight between the 2 stone giants, because I thought that was a great fantasy creature. The make up, the production design, as well as the cinematography, was beautiful.
Now, the no that I had was that the film wasn't an entirely satisfying experience. As opposed to The Fellowship Of The Ring, which felt like a thoroughly satisfying film, with its own resolutions and a largely rewarding climax, this film really felt unfinished. Another example was the split of the final Harry Potter films, which were satisfying as their own films. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this film, but I was left wanting, not because I craved more, but because I felt a bit ripped off by the lack of overall story being told.
My final consensus is, it is definitely a big film (both in grandeur and length) with nice visuals and fantastic acting, but it seems unnecessarily padded with nostalgia just so the studios can try and replicate the success of the original trilogy. Its wonderful coming back to Middle Earth, but its not quite the film that it should be because it was split into 3. I say give it a watch regardless, because it is a well told story and a fun one.

Tis the season

This film wasn't just an introspective through the eyes of some people that used to like Star Wars before it was tragically exploited by a cold, money hungry business man, but it was also nostalgic hearing people talk about how Star Wars affected them in a positive light and how it first touched them. It really brought me back to a time when Star Wars was my world, because every male child, and some female children, experience that at some point. Star Wars isn't just a movie, and this film proves it. Love George Lucas, or hate him, but he did craft the largest Sci Fi franchise of all time. Granted, not on his own, but the man still gave us Star Wars, and any fan who loves Star Wars or documentaries should give this a watch. I highly recommend this, and I recommend you all recommend this.
May the force be with you

Its really not one of the best films of the year, but it was one of the most overlooked. It didn't live up to its potential considering its astounding cast, but Hardy and Pierce are still worth the watch. I recommend it highly, even though there were better films this year, but I am afraid this one might end up fading into obscurity.

Because I never got around to it, here are my thoughts on Christopher Nolan's epic conclusion to the critical and financial juggernaut, Batman trilogy. Ever since 2008's "The Dark Knight" anticipation has been high for not only a follow up, but a conclusion. It took 4 years, but was it worth the wait? The Dark Knight Rises was easily the most anticipated film of 2012, which is saying a lot considering its competition (The Hobbit, The Avengers, Prometheus, Skyfall, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, Django Unchained, The Lackluster Spiderman, Lincoln and Chasing Mavericks). Slowly we, as film goers, heard casting details, saw production stills, and read details about the plot. All seemed very promising at the time, but the question we all had on our minds was, would it live up to the expectations set by its predecessor? In all fairness, how could it? The Dark Knight changed the game, not just for comic book movies, but major blockbusters in general. Films are feeling the ripple from the Dark Knight, causing darker story lines, more grounded and realistic action set pieces and more sinister and less cartoony villains. Its evident in films and posters all the time. So the bar is set pretty high for this film, and it was nipping at the heels of 2012's other major summer release and main rival, "Marvel's The Avengers", which had the gift of surpassing expectations, we all knew that that film could have been a disaster, but this review is about The Dark Knight Rises, and was it worth the wait? This reviewer is divided on the question. I liked many aspects of it, but I felt because the bar was so high that Nolan felt he had to shoot for the moon, but ultimately overshot it. The opening was exciting, and that goes to say, that the action was very well executed and there were some genuinely haunting images when Gotham falls into chaos, but overall its very inconsistent as a story. The first act, in my opinion, contradicts the final act of The Dark Knight. Bruce stops being batman because his girlfriend died? That would be okay if there wasn't that epic speech (my favorite moment in the entire Batman franchise). The whole point is that Batman told Gordon that he is going to keep being Batman, because Gotham needs him, and he was going to martyr himself for the sake of Gotham, because he can take it, he is The Dark Knight. But he just stopped being Batman after the confrontation with two-face? That seems silly considering the way the previous film ended. So after that night, Gotham City, a city that was notorious for its high crime rate, just reverts to so little crime that Gordon is being forced to retire, despite all he did for the city. If anything, the city should propose Gordon to run for mayor. Without getting too far into spoiler territory, an incident with Selina Kyle forces Wayne into donning the batsuit which leads him into his confrontation with Ubu, or as he's known in the film, Bane. I personally thought that Catwoman was the best part of the film, even though she was never referred to as Catwoman. The chase out of the stock exchange was pretty satisfying, and I was thoroughly pleased seeing Batman kick ass again, but when he meets Bane, the tables are turned. I felt Bane was the best choice of villain, and I had been saying since day 1 that he needs to fight Bane. And boy did Bane beat the shit out of him. It was almost uncomfortable how devastating Batman got his ass handed to him. Despite that fact that I could only hear every other word that Bane said, I thought the performance was excellent. Because his face was covered for the whole film, he had to resort to body language, and Tom Hardy truly understood that. But the accent was questionable. What the fuck was it? Dutch? So while bane takes over Gotham, Batman is stuck in India in a prison where an inmate performs back alley surgery to fix his back by popping in a vertebrae like a dislocated shoulder and over the course of three months he trains to escape. And this is where the schlock begins. I have far too many questions regarding the third act for this to be a perfect movie, let alone a candidate for best picture. Batman has to make a jump from a stone in the wall of the prison to a higher stone so he can climb out. Now if he had made this jump in one shot, I would have bought that, he's fucking BATMAN!!!!!!! But since they have to add """""""""tension""""""""" (I put it in so many quotes because the tension was immediately dissolved because the rope that secured him would have snapped his back and there is now nothing at stake when you can keep recovering from broken backs), I was taken out of the film. So here are some more questions; When Bane seized Gotham, and it is overrun with terrorists, why is there an underground movement of cops running rampant and alive? When they clearly showed that nobody could get in or out of Gotham, how did Batman get back in? If they were just going to detonate the nuclear bomb, why did Bane and Thalia wait five months to do it? How did John Blake figure out that Wayne was Batman based on his smile? How did the cops with Billy clubs defeat the terrorists with the Kevlar ak AK-47s? And the questions go on for another seventy six lines. But that being said, I enjoyed the resolution and Wayne ending up with a good looking girl for once, because he deserved it. I mostly went into the cons of the film, but there were a lot of pros. The performances were good, save Marion Cotiliard in a particularly hammy performance and she very much gave away who her character was, all the action scenes were good, the cinematography from Wally Pfister was fantastic, and it was nice to see a worthwhile ending to a great story. Sure there were problems, but it was still a very good film. It didn't live up to expectations, and for me it was the most disappointing film of the year, but with a bar so high, how could it reach it? So I do ultimately recommend it, but there were far greater films that came out this summer. See it if you can, just don't expect another Dark Knight.
Oh, and John Blake being named Robin is fucking retarded
Hey guys, since I no longer do unscripted reviews (for which I am very sorry) but people are still asking for new reviews, so I am just going to be doing text reviews. I do have a lot of catching up. I will go in depth for some reviews, and I will barely scratch the surface for others, depending on whether I feel there is much to be said about the film. I will be doing movies that are new releases and movies that are old, only if I think that they are worth your time. So stay tuned. I will be reviewing movies that I failed to review upon initial release, and some of my favorite films and I will be ending the year with a top ten list of films from this year. Best and worst. Thanks for reading
