Cinema Fanatic’s Favorite Fifteen Films of 2012


I really loved most of what I saw in 2011 (and actually my favorite film from 2011 I saw in 2012, but I will post more about that tomorrow). As for 2012, a lot of what I saw I felt kind of neutral about and a handful of films I downright hated (which is a rarity for me, really). I’m not sure what it was, but 2012 just didn’t live up to my expectations. That said, I did compile a list of fifteen films that I really loved. I wasn’t able to see Zero Dark Thirty or Amour before the end of the year, which I would have liked to have seen before compiling this list. Alas, they don’t open in San Francisco until after the new year. If you want to see all the 2012 releases I watched, you can do so here.

New Poster and Featurette For Tom Hooper’s “Les Misérables”


After first trailer I was excited for Anne Hathaway, but that was about it as far as Academy Award winner Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) and his new version of Les Mis was concerned. But then last week they released a behind the scene featurette (posted below) that had interviews with the cast discussing how they recorded the music live as they were filming. They were so excited, that I became excited. Now we’ve got this poster, which is a take on the classic artwork for the musical. I can dig it.
