I’ve always been of the opinion that in the world of Cinephillia the years go from Oscar night to Oscar night rather than from January to January. So now, almost two months after the rest of the world moved on, I’ve finally decided to leave 2012 for the history books. It’s been a hell of a year and I’m leaving it now with a two retrospective pieces looking back at the year in film.
Firstly, I’ve posted the results for my Sixth Annual Golden Stake Awards. For those who don’t know, the Golden Stakes are a sort of personalized award show I put together where I single-handedly pick both the nominees and winners in a variety of categories ranging from Best Actor to Best Fight Scene. I’ve put one together every year, but I’ve never really found a good way to present it on the blog until now. All of the choices can be found at the link below, and I hope to go back and add results from previous years as well once I recover from all the work of putting together this one.
And those looking for a more concise snapshot of the year’s best film can go over to the page for Top Tens, where I’ve added my choices for 2012.
So now it’s time to look forward to 2013. There are some interesting sounding movies in the pipeline for this year and I look forward to reviewing them. I also have some plans to make this blog a little more personal in 2013 and hope to be writing more than just a whole bunch of reviews.
