I want to say that 2012 was a much better year for film than 2011. When I look at my fancy statistics I notice that 2011 had 3 films I gave an “A” rating to (Drive, The Muppets, and 50/50), and this year I gave 6 films an “A”. 2011 also had 21 “B” grade films while 2012 had 24 “B” grades. So on that front, yeah, 2012 was a little better. At the same time, 2011 had only 26 “D” or “F” grade films, and 2012 had 34. So maybe I’d rather weigh the best statistics against the best, over the worst against the worst. I don’t know. Numbers make my head hurt.
Anyway here are the 81 films from 2012 that I viewed (5 more than 2011). If any of the grades don’t match the score of the original review, it’s probably because I’ve rewatched it and changed my view on it. Or because shut the hell up. How about that? Happy new year!
