    The Guardian Names 'The Master' The Best Film Of 2012, 'Ted' Is The Second Best

    The Best Movie Music Moments Of 2012

    When it first began, many, many years ago, The Playlist covered film in general, but with a particular focus on the places where movies intersected with music -- scores, soundtracks, music videos et al.
