I read an article earlier this year by film critic David Denby about how cgi superhero movies are murdering good movies in Hollywood: http://www.tnr.com/article/books-and-arts/magazine/107212/has-hollywood-murdered-the-movies He makes some good points. And overall I'm very fond of old movies from the 20s-70s. And yet, 2012 has actually been a pretty good year for movies for me. Here are some of my favorites so far (in no particular order): Moonrise Kingdom, Brave, Cloud Atlas, Samsara, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looper, Argo, Lincoln I'm looking forward to, but have not year seen: Skyfall, Life of Pi, Hitchcock, Les Miserables, The Hobbit 1, and the Bollywood film Jab Tak Hai Jaan.... But I'm sure I've missed some good movies. What are your favorites so far this year? And what are you looking forward to?
