ENLISTED




Matt Singer shares his "Best Films of 2012" over on Criticwire.



Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman has his top ten.




Wired lists "The Best Movies You Didn't See in 2012." I've seen half of the movies I didn't see this year then. What about you?

THE GOOD



Studio Ghibli has announced two new films from the renowned studio coming next year! (Source: /Film)




In today's Criticwire survey the critics shared the best piece(s) of film criticism that they read this year. If you're looking some quality and fascinating reading, look no further.




Criticwire considers the best performances of this year at the movies. Above could only be  Willem Dafoe in the largely unknown "4:44 Last Day on Earth." Pretty shocked to not Daniel Day-Lewis being mentioned...




Now that Peter Jackson has secured "The Hobbit" in theaters he is going to start shooting the sequel to "The Adventures of Tintin" next year! (Source: HitFix)

THE BAD




FilmDrunk shares "The Worst Movies of 2012."



One of the most unfortunate pieces of film news I heard last week was that "Kill Bill: Vol. 3" in unlikely. The source? The horse's mouth, Tarantino himself. /Film has the details.

* * *

AND THE RANDOM




Last week the Golden Globe nominations were announced. I'll probably be doing a separate post all about them in the near future. "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen"... We didn't see that one coming...



Here is Scott Mendelson's box office analysis where it is no surprise that "The Hobbit" ran away with it last weekend.

OR THE COOL



Nick Kinder has put out another impressive YouTube video, this one honoring the films of 2012. Check this out (and last week's similarly awesome video if you missed it).

MAYBE THE HILARIOUS



Oh how ridiculous yet ringing true The Onion so often is. You really must watch this news story about how Peter Jackson wanted "The Hobbit" to stay truthful to the Denny's tie-in menu.




In a recent episode of Conan he talked about how much more creepy Gollum was this time around...

That video of all the movies from 2012 was really cool. I wonder if they'll use it in the academy awards next year...
