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.

I’m sure all of you in our SSWL family know that we are friends of Director Ryan O’ Leary. Well, we were lucky enough to score an exclusive photo from his upcoming feature film The Backseat. The movie stars Chris Bellant, Allyson Reilly, Craig Kelly, Costas Nicholas, and Lori Hamilton as Mrs. Offerman.

Synopsis:

“High school social outcasts Roy Offerman and Larry DiMarco struggle to find a drummer for their new punk rock band, Witness My Jehovah. As Roy will learn, sometimes finding the answer to one problem only brings about a host of others. Immediately after finding a drummer, Roy is plagued by a raging case of hemorrhoids.”

To see more stills and get updates on the movie, ‘Like’ their Facebook Page. The more likes it gets, Ryan will randomly put out more stills.
