Around this time every year, for as far back as I can remember, I pick and write about the ten movies I’m most looking forward in the coming year. Here on /Film I did it for the movies of 2011 as well as the movies of 2012 and, in the coming days, I’ll do it for 2013.
Before that, though, we thought it would be fun to look back at the films I chose as my ten anticipated for this year and see how well I did. Did any of these films make my top ten of the year? Did they at least meet expectations? Check out some of my embarrassing, and not so embarrassing, picks after the jump. Read More »

Why would anyone wait in line to see a movie that they’ve already seen and is currently on Blu-ray? Joss Whedon. The writer/director of this year’s #1 film, The Avengers, stopped by the Director’s Guild of America in Hollywood, CA Tuesday night to screen that film and speak with Jeff Goldsmith of Backstory Magazine about his uber-blockbuster. Along the way, Whedon dropped an extremely subtle hint as to a possible villain in The Avengers 2 (or another future Marvel film), spoke about a version of The Avengers with Wasp and explained why, even though The Empire Strikes Back is superior, A New Hope is the better movie. Read some quotes and more after the jump. Read More »
Since we’ve helped some air grievances about certain films, it’s only right to offer an equal bashing to all of 2012′s superhero movies. We’ve covered people taking down The Dark Knight Rises, and The Amazing Spider-Man, and now it’s time for Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers to go under the bus.
Out of the year’s three big superhero movies, The Avengers gets the least flack in part because it was so damn successful, grossing $623 million domestic and $1.5 billion worldwide. That makes it good to place at #3 on lists of all-time domestic and international successes. Not only was it fun, it was historic.
But it also has its problems as evidenced in CinemaSin’s “Everything Wrong With The Avengers In 3 Minutes or Less.” Check out the video below. Read More »
No matter how simple or elaborate a piece of art is, chances are the artist behind it made twenty different versions before arriving at what you see. Other times, they work on something and are forced to scrap it for one reason or another. This happens with everything: music, movies, posters, books. Most artists would never let the public see their unfinished works, but in the case of pop culture artist Olly Moss, he decided to let us in on the process.
Moss recently blogged about several projects he was working on during 2012 that either were either cancelled, scrapped or completely reimagined. Projects that weren’t even close to complete, just ideas and simple sketches. Normally, you’d think, “who cares?” But Moss was working on some truly incredible stuff: A Lawrence of Arabia poster, an Akira poster, a Blade Runner poster, Dr. No, Mad Men and more. It leads one to wonder why most of this stuff didn’t happen.
We asked Mr. Moss for comments on all of these posters and he was happy to oblige. After the jump, check out Moss’s incomplete work and read his comments on each. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jeremy Renner hosted Saturday Night Live this week and, considering he was a part of the year’s most successful film, the subject obviously came up. I’m talking about The Avengers, and SNL went all out, dressing cast members as all of the main characters: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Maria Hill. They even dressed Bobby Moynihan as the Hulk. Renner suited up as Hawkeye and brought up an issue many of us were thinking about during Joss Whedon‘s film. Check out the funny skit below. Read More »
