The 2012 At the Movies viewer’s poll is now open! Which means it’s not long before I pick my 10 favourite films of the year.
As usual I haven’t seen anywhere near as many films as I would have liked, and as usual I will try to remedy that by cramming hours and hours of film watching into the space of a couple of months. It seems to me that the logical thing to do is quit my job and live on the couch for weeks straight (on a diet of pure caffeine) but my wife insists I need to leave time for being a functional member of society, so I guess that’s not an option.
Instead I’ll just have to pick a handful of movies that I’m really interested in, and here’s where I can use your help. Below is a list of films I’m really keen on but haven’t watched yet …
- Cabin in the Woods
- The Descendants
- The Hobbit Part 1
- The Intouchables
- Les Miserables
- Pirates! Band of Misfits
- The Raid: Redemption
- A Separation
- Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Have you seen any of these? Do you think I’d be just wasting my time with any of them? Are there any others that I would be a fool to miss out on? Don’t be shy – let me know!
Note: To help with recommendations I’ve put a list of movies I’ve already seen in the comments. Also, for international readers, this list may look a little strange because it’s based on Australian release dates. Some of the films were actually released in USA in 2011 or earlier.
