Logging top films of 2012
Stephanie and I always list our top films of each year.
We spend an insane amount of time grading, rating and ranking each film of the year to make a list that we are fond of.
I've found that life is easier if I keep track as I go along. I use a feature from Yahoo Movies that lets you review and rank films to keep a running record.
Being the nerd I am, I have lists going back many, many years.
I thought I'd share my process each step of the way that leads to finalizing the best films of the year list.
So, each time I see a movie in 2012 I'll automatically rank it.
Since I've seen three films this year, let's start this:
3. "Underworld: Awakening"
Do I think these three films will end up being the top three films of 2012? No way. I mean with "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers" coming out?
Obviously this list will change dramatically as I see more films. The main thing I'll be thinking is "Was this better than 'Chronicle'?" or "Was this worse than 'Underworld'?" And then rank accordingly.
"Chronicle" was very good though. I expect it to, at least, remain in the top 10.
