    Katie Walsh's Top 10 Films Of 2012

    Experiencing art and watching film is such a deeply subjective experience that it seems a fool’s errand to rank and list “the best" of anything. How I reacted to the films I saw in 2012 can be completely personal and different than any of my colleagues on this site, but that’s what makes it interest...

    Oliver Lyttelton's Favorite Films Of 2012

    I think it was only as I sat down to write this list that I realized what a terrific year for film 2012 was. Not so much in the narrowing down of the list -- I'd over-extended my Top 10 to 15 last year, and it was relatively simple to pare it down, although there's still a few heartbreakers that did...

    The Most Unintentionally Funny Moment of 2012

    Gabe just tore into "The Hunger Games" and ripped it a new asshole. I wouldn't go so far, but I also can't say I liked the movie much. His missive against it reminded me of what I found to be the most hilarious moment of the film and therefore kind of the most unitentionally funny moment of the year...

    Gabe Toro's Ten Best Films Of 2012

    A strong year, this 2012. Every genre had its share of riches, and we were spoiled by new films from Andersons Wes and Paul Thomas, further mythmaking from Quentin Tarantino and an inquisition into our currency from David Cronenberg. We saw the continued evolution of the careers of Jacques Audiard, ...

    2012 The Year In Box Office: Hits, Flops And Secret Successes

    So we’re completing a year of record domestic box office returns, but it’s impossible to ignore that the international market is a hefty player, taking a bigger overall chunk of the pie. It’s not good enough for a picture to perform in America – if it doesn’t grab more than half its share from inter...

    For Your Consideration: 5 Directors Who Deserve Oscar Nominations This Year

    Unlike Best Picture, the Best Director category at the Academy Awards is still only made up of five slots, and it's tough to crack in there, especially as nominees are usually aligned with the Best Picture nominees. More than almost any other category, the merits of a film's direction can sometimes ...
