Now 2012 is now gone. I managed to rewatch 12 of the 14 movies that I claimed at one precise moment to be my favorites, and share with the good folks of Chit Chat how they held up.

The two movies that didn't get watched? I simply cannot find a copy of Woddy Allen's Play It Again Sam, which is a shame, since this is a movie I haven't seen in two decades and am very curious to see how it holds up to memory, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show which I just never felt the urge to watch this year -it really is more event than movie . . .
What did I learn through all this? As much as anything, I learned that I missed at least as many of my potential "Top 10" movies as I included in this list! So here are a dozen more movies I'll be looking at in 2013 . . .
A Few Good Men
Play It Again Sam
The Spy Who Loved Me
St Elmos Fire
Up In Arms
Up In The Air
