Here is a best of 2012 list from friend of the show Francis Sky.  So read, enjoy, and leave some feedback because after all these lists are not supposed to end the conversations, but meant to start them. Now on to the list:

MOVIES

 

 

 

 

1. Avengers– This was probably the most fun I had at the movies in a while.  Marvel managed to put some of its top characters in the same movie without over saturating the content.  Director Joss Whedon managed to make a comic film that both does not insult old fans and does not punish the new ones.  All the characters were given equal time to shine and the final battle in New York was a wonder to behold in 3D.

 

 

 

 

2. Frankenweenie– Frankenweenie felt like a return to form for Tim Burton.  Combining elements of classic horror with a morbid sense of humor, the film felt like something in the vein of earlier works like Beetlejuice.  The emotional buttons were also pushed, because who can’t sympathize with losing a pet?  Unfortunate timing (coming after Paranorman and Hotel Transylvania) really hurt its box office, but hopefully it can find a bigger audience on DVD/Blu-ray.
