F This Movie Fest 2? Trick question, I can’t see your hands on the Internet. DOUBLE trick question. The answer is obviously “everybody.” Look, I’m not in the business of picking a favorite movie from 1991, partly because there are so many good ones to choose from, and partly because no one is offering to pay me. That’s how business works. TRIPLE trick question.

For the longest time, I thought JFK was an attempt to shed light on the murder of the 35th president of the United States, an uncrackable mystery that probably grows less and less likely to be revealed as each decade passes.

Kevin Ford through my soon-to-be brother-in-law. Kevin is a videographer/filmmaker who worked on The Brothers Bloom, and is currently editing a documentary about Adrien Brody renovating an old, rundown castle in upstate New York (serious stuff, F-Heads). Anyway, Kevin showed me the trailer for a movie he directed titled Legs, featuring Angela Bettis (she of May and The Woman fame), and, well, because I'm always looking for ways to juice this introduction, I figured I'd share his preview here. So, enjoy! And if that doesn't float your boat, here's a new trailer for the IMAX 3D rerelease of Top Gun. YOU'RE WELCOME.

Welcome to my study! Come in. Sit down in one of my fine leather chairs. Help yourself to some of my pipe tobacco. You didn’t bring your pipe? That’s alright. You can use one of mine.
Patrick knows a lot about movies. Doug has seen Red Tails dozens of times. In an effort to expand Doug's cinematic horizons, he'll be asking Patrick questions about movies in a column we're calling "Doug Asks Patrick Questions About Movies."

Movies Your Forgot Starred Wrestlers. While that was a fun trip down memory lane, it left off too many noteworthy performances from the stars of the squared circle. Problem solved!

last year (or who have ever heard me talk about lists) know that I have an extremely difficult time ranking things - especially art. Favorite song? Why pick one? Love song? Rock song? New wave? Folk thrash? Who could choose just one?

2012 might not go down in history as a good year for great movies, but it was most definitely a GREAT year for GOOD movies. There was a lot to like this year, and so much of the good stuff this year went down so easy that I know I'll be revisiting a ton of these movies for years to come. Here are some of my favorite moments from movies I really liked, plus some great moments from movies I didn't. It was that kind of year -- even the movies I wasn't crazy about had their moments. Here they are.
