    I agree, bad one for movies imo. I was hoping Oscar season would save it but 2012 wasn't my kinda year. Although it woulda been great for fans of comicbook movies.

    Benoco its funny but i actually thought this was one of the stronger years for movies in recent memory

    Avengers, Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, Wreck it Ralph, Brave, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Lincoln- all very solid in my opinion. Hell, Skyfall was pretty amazing for a fall movie- really enlivened things after October and was a good way to transition into the Oscar type movies taking over the box office.

    Yeah, I've no doubt the summer was some people's wet dream.

    I knew what I was getting with Avengers and it's not for me. I was disappointed with TDKR, I actually thought it was pretty stupid (although I get why people love it). I haven't seen Skyfall, but there's a reason for that, I don't enjoy the franchise what-so-ever. Seven Psychopaths was the biggest disappointment of the year for me (Sam Rockwell aside), I loved In Bruges and expected great things. Lincoln is quality.

    I can't really write the whole year off though, I haven't seen Django (not released in Ireland yet) or The Master.

    The Bourne Series is a franchise I do love but Legacy wasn't nearly the same standard.

    least favorite book - 50 shades of grey (and its sequels). didn't read them, but heard enough about them to realize that it was nothing more than smut, peddled as "literature". what's worse is that people (women mostly) thought that reading it made them cool/sexy.
