The "Track the films you watch" thread is a great place to keep track of all films watched in a year, though any are welcome to track all their film watching here if they so desire. This is also a great place to discuss smaller release, independent and foreign films that probably won't get a dedicated review and discussion thread. And this thread is useful for keeping track of what 2012 films you watched when you're compiling an end of year list or a top ten next December. Q: Are there any rules? A: At the top of your list, state the criteria you are using for updates. Some common criteria are: Films released in North American theaters in 2012. Films in wide release in 2012. Films seen in a movie theater in 2012 regardless of original release date Films seen in a movie theater in 2012 and DVDs of films released in North American theaters in 2012. Every time you update your list, try to reply to the thread with a short comment related to your updates. This will keep the thread on the first page, and hopefully get some discussion going.
