December 2012 – I’m gonna finish him like a cheesecake

Life Of Pi - December 2012I haven’t been to the cinema nearly as much as I’d have liked to this month.

For starters, I was in remotest Russia for the first half of December, finishing up at Angletica and trying not to get frost bite the fortnight before my scheduled departure. I arrived home on the 22nd, but then had to spend the next week getting ready for Christmas and New Year.

I did see the odd film, however, and managed to prioritise so that I caught the bigger releases first. Since my return to Scotland, I have caught up with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (in English, this time, and 48fps), Pitch Perfect and Life Of Pi. I also saw Jack Reacher, but have not yet had the time to actually review it.

I also tried my best to sum up the year just passed, tipping my hat to The Amazing Spider-man and The Avengers in particular for outstanding achievements in chemistry and quotability, respectively. Still, I couldn’t resist the draw of a more traditional top ten, and eventually crowned Josh Trank’s Chronicle my favourite film of 2012.

Having similarly summed up 2011 with a review of the year, I wrote “If 2012 Were A Movie…” for HeyUGuys. I followed suit with a slightly more personal precis for my travel blog, Finding A Neish, in which I touched on the year’s broader narrative. It’s been an amazing year, and one which I hope to top in 2013.

That really just leaves me to thank you for reading. I mean it: thank you. Even despite my recent absence, Popcorn Addiction has continued to grow and expand with almost every month.

Happy New Year, dear readers, and I look forward to agreeing, disagreeing and just generally connecting with you over the coming months.

Film of the month: Life Of Pi
