I don't know how many of the people that included Leos Carax's Holy Motors on their year end top ten were doing it to seem hip or actually, truly loved it, but I remain unconvinced that anyone can separate this movie from any other nutty, "what the hell?" movie that hits cinema screens each year. That isn't to say it's a bad film, in fact it was one of the more entertaining when it came to post-screening conversation in Cannes last year, but best of the year? Eh, I guess that depends on how you qualify such a status. I determine my year end best by those movies I want, and have a desire, to watch again. Holy Motors doesn't fit in that category, but I suggest all of you at least give it a watch to see what you get out of it. You can read my review from Cannes last year right here.
A favorite of many and a respected film from others, I'm sure many will rush out to add The Master to their collections as soon as they can, others will catch it again when they get around to it. Personally I don't feel the need to see it again any time soon. I saw it once and have ruminated on it since and just haven't found the desire. I'm sure many of you are champing at the bit to did into Freddie and Lancaster's heads yet again.

Voted by the people that vote on the Razzies as the worst film of 2012, which is to say they have finally given evidence they don't actually watch the movies they declare the worst.
Surf's up dude! Gerard Butler goes surfing in this little seen poorly reviewed surfer flick. I never had much of an interest in it and still don't.
