Tough month. I'm crawling towards the finish line of 2012 wondering if maybe the Mayans weren't right after all? 2012 has been a fine year for cinema but a tough one for me personally. Now, my true year doesn't technically end until February 22nd, 2013 OSCAR NIGHT after which I can move on to 2013 but for now I'm just relieved that 2012, the calendar year, is almost over. But enough negativity! EXCELSIOR.
