Top 10 Movies of 2012 – Another list of Top 10 movies from 2012, this time from James Harleman, move blogger extraordinaire and author of the recently released book Cinemagogue: Reclaiming Entertainment and Navigating Narrative for the Myths and Mirrors the were Meant to Be. His review basically becomes a checklist of movies to see for me, so I whole-heartedly recommend his list. Also, I’m in the throes of his book right now and plan on a review, so stay tuned for that (Hint: It is shaping up to start out 2013 as my book to beat for Book O’ the Year). Also, here is a list from Adrian Lyne, as well over at IMDb.
