The Best and Worst of 2012

cosmopolis-3Well it’s the end of the year, which means it’s time for me to share with movie nerds webwide what I thought was the best this year had to offer in cinema.  This is not our Top 15 movies of the year list.  That list will come mid-January, and be a collaborative effort amongst all us Filmbalayans.  This post is just my opinion (which is obviously the absolute best opinion) on what I thought was the best, and worst, that movies had to offer this year.  You know what they say, “Opinions are like assholes, everybody’s got one, and everybody thinks everyone elses stinks.”

Follow the jump to see my stinking opinions on what I thought were the Best Performance, Best Villain,Best Documentary, Best Horror, Worst Movie and many other categories.
