    2012: A Year in Review (1-10)

    2012 will probably go down as one of the best years in cinema of this current decade.  This was the hardest year for me to make a top ten list because there were too many great films that came out, especially in the fall.  In fact every film on my top ten list was a […] More

    Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Films of 2012 (Part One)
