This certainly has been a rough year for discriminating movie-goers. The generally lackluster nature of 2012’s cinematic offerings has become all the more apparent as I wade through the catalog of potentially worthwhile titles I missed earlier in the year, in preparation for my annual top 10 list (coming early next month). Haven’t seen anything too exciting thus far, but I haven’t lost hope yet.
The multiplex scene seems more exciting these days, with a smattering of critically acclaimed Oscar hopefuls looking to help end the year on as positive a note as possible. This weekend brings us nothing of consequence, but nevertheless, a handful of interesting releases are still playing at the local friendly multiplex. (I missed “Lincoln,” but will definitely see it before the year is out).
