If it's crap ... We'll tell you
From looking through the 90+ films I've seen this year, it's immensely encouraging to see how much I've liked so many films this year, and that it got incredibly difficult to narrow down my favorite films this year to ten; some of my honorable mentions are pretty great movies, and have just missed my list. 2011 was a fairly strong year, and 2012 was even better, so I'm hoping the quality continues on in 2013.
Well... wow! To my surprise and delight, 2011 has been quite a strong year for movies, definitely better than 2010. Looking at the upcoming films for 2012, I actually see quite a lot of promise.

The same goes with his character in Phillips' next film, "Due Date", though I personally enjoyed it a bit more than "The Hangover", mainly because Zach's…Continue

So... damn it! This year for cinema really doesn't look like it will be that much of an improvement of 2010. There just seems to be a LOT of sequels and remakes coming out and not a lot of particularly original upcoming films. Even so, I do have some films I'm really looking forward to, and my most anticipated happens to be a sequel. I have decided to make a list of my most anticipated...
