2012

Jan-Feb
1. Dollhouse Season 1, Season 2 (Dear Joss Whedon, what are you talking about? This series is exactly the way it should be from start to finish! Still can’t get over that rape scene and I wonder why it’s not as controversial as Spike’s attempted rape in Buffy season 6. It’s not really *that* subtle.)
2. Secretary (James Spader scares and arouses me at the same time. Mary Gaitskill does not approve of this movie, says wiki.)
3. Trese Book 2, Book 3, Book 4 (Too much talking and not enough visual narration and I’m guessing, not the kind of talking Watchmen had.)
4. Avatar: The Last Airbender Book 1, Book 2, Book 3 (AWESOME WORLD-BUILDING AWESOME AWESOME CHARACTERS FEMINIST WITHOUT EVEN TRYING AND I LOVE ZUKO.)
5. Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila Blg. 1 (Forever magaling si Vergara sa execution ng humor through lettering.)

12. Zombieland (I love zombies in carnivals.)
13. Bugtong ng Buwan at iba pang kwento
14. The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (This documentary proves that too much self-reflexivity is boring.)
15. Donnie Darko (AWESOME. Though I refuse the director’s interpretation of the film. Scared of rabbits for awhile after this film.)
16. Breakfast Club ( <3 When you grow up, your heart dies. :( )
17. Food, Inc.
18. Batman Begins (I regret that I didn’t watch this in the theaters just because I didn’t like Katie Holmes then.)
19. The Cove
20. Vexed Series 1 (Snarky and long dialogue exchanges fun.)

22. Archer Season 1, Season 2, Season 3 (Because that’s how you get ants.)
23. The Producers
24. You Dance with the Summer
25. The Avengers (BEST MOVIE OF 2012 THE ONLY MOVIE I ACTUALLY FELT I GOT MY MONEY’S WORTH I WAS SO NERVOUS FOR JOSS WHEDON ABOUT THIS AND HE DELIVERS MORE THAN I EXPECTED EVEN IF I’VE WATCHED ALL THE MOVIE’S NARRATIVE POINTS IN HIS OTHER WORKS. INTELLECT AND POP YES.)

12. Ghost Lantern (B-movie rom-com with a gangster boss who skinned a woman and used her flesh to make a lantern and trap her ghost. Surprisingly, it had no happy ending!)

16. Prometheus
17. Cloverfield (First found-footage film that I actually liked.)

13. Midnight Beating (What the fuck, China? The ending had a woman jumping off the balcony to commit suicide and fly towards the arms of her ghost sister and they twirled around with a crappy backdrop of stars. This is supposed to be a scary film.)
