01/02/2013: American Mary [2012]

So, it's been a long few months since I've taken the time to write something, which is a real shame. Every time I watched a fantastic movie and felt inspired I didn't take the time then, and didn't find it later. But, after watching American Mary, I remembered how much it thrilled me when the Twisted Twins themselves read and commented on my review, ironically about how much my thrilled them. So Ladies, here it goes.

The List of Things I Liked in 2012 Part 3

Mr. Darko's Favourite 5 6 T.V. Shows of 2012

As usual I watched a lot of T.V. this year including a couple entire shows that I had missed over the years. However this is the list of the best 6 T.V. shows currently airing that I excitedly waited to watch each week and I can't wait for the next season.

The List of Things I Liked in 2012 Part 2

Mr. Darko's Favourite 6 Indie, Low-Budget, Whatever else of 2012

 This list consists of all the things I didn't consider a big blockbuster that came out this year, but that doesn't mean they are below any of the movies on part 1. I just didn't want to have to mix these movies together into one big list as I felt that certain things would get left out that shouldn't. That's also why this list got extended to 6 as well. Below are the 6 movies that you likely didn't see this year, due to a limited or non-existent release but are definitely worth the trouble to seek them out.

The List of Things I Liked in 2012 Part 1

So after a longer than planned hiatus I have returned to blogging for the new year and will start by wrapping up the last year of movies. I remember having some difficulty making up my list for 2011, and whether I just didn't see much or there wasn't much to see I can say I enjoyed 2012 a tremendous amount more. While I didn't get to see everything I would have liked to, I saw a lot and was very pleased with what both Hollywood and the rest of the world turned out. So here is my list of my favourite 5 blockbusters, favourite 5 indie movies and my favourite T.V. shows from this year.

I'm Back! Soon.

Just thought I'd give you an update on when you can expect some new things. For those of you who waited patiently, thanks. Do to a trying month at work I wasn't able to write much, but I did however continue to squeeze in a movie or two every so often. Actually, it was a total of about 30 movies over the last month since I posted. Since some of them (or most) were movies I think everyone should be aware of, I'll be doing a couple of summary posts with a small bit on each, which I hope to start rolling out in a week or so.

Below is what to expect. Let me know if you want me to cover anything specifically with more than a paragraph be it your favourite movie or something you are thinking of seeing.

007 Favourite Bond Films

In preparation for the coming release of Skyfall, I spent most of last weekend watching my way through the last five decades of James Bond movies. It has been quite a year for James Bond with 2012 marking the 50th year since Dr. No was released in 1962. While I had intended to watch a couple of Bond films a month since the summer, I only made it through the first four, and so in a last minute rush I piled through a total of 6 this weekend, (one per actor), in preparation. Instead of reviewing them all, I'll instead list the top seven films in the series.
