On New Years Day, I emerged from the darkened cinema of life, bleary-eyed, greasy-haired and wearing nothing but a loincloth made from goblin skin after having seen 50 films in the year of our lord, 2012. Marvel at my monotonous delivery, as I had a cold and had to make stuff up on the spot - er, I mean, meticulously prepared for your viewing pleasure. There are some obvious choices, some divisive decisions and some gems which not everyone would have managed to see.
From Cronenberg to Batman, and from Amy Adams to Willem Dafoe, a whole range of films are covered. I think Im going to have a lie down now and watch a few less films this year. Maybe just Star Trek into Darkness, Elysium and Cloud Atlas. OK, maybe Ill add in Kick-Ass 2 and The Zero Theorem. Thats it. Well, Twelve Years a Slave and A Field in England obviously, thats a given. Oh, but I couldnt forget Don Johns Addiction and The Wolverine. And maybe Ill try and sneak in Pacific Rim and Only God Forgives aw, damn it!
See you, inevitably, in 2014, where Ill probably resemble Smeagol even more closely, having watched more films, and Peter Jackson will delay the end of the Hobbit Trilogy again and ask me to take over second-unit for a fourth part based upon an extra comment Tolkien added by accident in an original, previously unseen manuscript. 'Til then, boys and girls
