Another year, another 80 movies in a theater. First run, revival, special events, anniversaries, midnights and outdoor screenings add up in the city of lights and angels. Looking back, I got to see some of my favorite movies of all time on the big screen like The Great Escape (2nd time), The Terminator (3rd time), Robocop (2nd time) and Escape From New York (3rd time) as well as see some of my favorite actors in person like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kurt Russell and Peter Weller.
On the new movie front, three flicks hit cinemas that became instant favorites:
Pain & Gain
The Last Stand
Other flicks I enjoyed or at least made me pay attention:
Star Trek Into Darkness
World War Z
Thor: The Dark World
Only God Forgives
I haven't gotten around to seeing most of the award fodder yet, that's what January is for.
