    Kevin Jagernauth's Favorite Films Of 2012

    2012 is so two weeks ago, right? Well, forgive my tardiness, but I was doing my best to catch up with as much as possible before putting this list together, but even then some films missed out. "Once Upon A Time In Anatolia," "Compliance," "Sleepwalk With Me," "Nob...

    'Amour' Wins Best Picture, Best Director & Best Actress From The National Society Of Film Critics

    The Oscar nominations are coming on Thursday morning, so that still leaves some time for critics groups to weigh in before the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences makes their announcement, and pretty much determines the movies that will be focus of conversation until Febraury 26th.

    Jessica Kiang’s Favorite Films Of 2012

    Step into my limousine and let’s drive around in the dead of night trying to find the corpses of 2012’s best films, shall we? Our journey will take us to the cornfields of Kansas, to tiny New England islands and to an explosion in a restaurant in Tel Aviv. We will talk to murderers and movie directo...

    My Favorite Films Of 2012 - Rodrigo Perez

    Cinema. Our cathedral in the dark for watching the lives of others flashing on a screen in hopes of a resonant echo, self-recognition, escape, catharsis, trying to make sense of this crazy world. One sometimes has to question the beings who would rather spend their time with fictional people in an u...

    The 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013 - Part 1

    So here we are in 2013. We survived the Mayan apocalypse, and we've made it to the year in which both Kevin Costner's disaster epic "The Postman" and sub-standard John Carpenter sequel "Escape To L.A." were set. And after a strong 2012, which contained some of the most anticipated movies in recent m...

    Drew Taylor's Top Ten Favorite Films of 2012

    2012 was all about escape. Not only in terms of the big-budget movies that offered us escape from the increasingly ugly real world (how many superheroes or swoony vampires can we stomach?), but by the content of the more adult movies.

    The Best Movies of 2012

    So far....Ok, first off, sorry to disappoint you if you thought this was going to be one big master list from all of our contributors.
