When it came out, I checked all theaters in 100 km radius of my house, none of them were showing the film in 2D. I then checked a website that shows all of Canada, and there wasn't a single 2D screening in the entire country.

Anyway, it's long since gone from theaters now anyway.

Speaking of 3D, I can't wait to see Peter Jackson's 9+ hour version of the Hobbit at 48 FPS in 3D. Oh wait, yes I can wait, indefinitely.

Now that Skyfall is out of the way, the only film on my theatrical radar is Django Unchained and possibly Jack Reacher because Werner Herzog (the insanely awesome German director) is playing the vilain.

There were a few places showing 2D screenings. Most of them were scattered around Britain. That's my thing with 3D. If people want to keep throwing money away on scratched up, recycled 3D glasses for a gimmick I don't care... AS LONG AS I GET THE OPTION OF SEEING IT IN 2D.

I don't know if there's anything else on my theatre radar. Django looks interesting, but I don't think I need to see it in a theatre. I'm not even sure what else is due out this year.

Wreck-It Ralph - I had certain expectations for the film and they were not met. Kind of like Scott Pilgrim vs The World, the video game references come fast and furious in the first quarter of the film and then it just goes off and does its own thing for the rest of the duration. The humor and general tone of the film also skews very young. It was entertaining, but the opportunity to turn this into a video game equivalent of Roger Rabbit was completely missed. 8/10

Skyfall - Oh my God, loved. It was Bondier than I expected, but it didn't do it too stupidly.

Yeah, saw it when it came out, and loved it.

Lincoln - Pretty riveting stuff for old men in beards and hats talking in poorly lit rooms for 2 hours.

Skyfall is easily my favorite of the movies I've seen this year.

I've seen a whopping four.

The Hobbit - I saw it in 48fps, it was different. None of the descriptions I've read so far were quite accurate. Not sure how I feel about it. As for the movie, you know what you're getting if you've seen the others. 8/10

Oblivion - Steals from every sci-fi film released in the past 30 years, sometimes blatantly, yet it still manages to be entertaining. 7.5/10

This Is The End - I laughed, a lot. The fact that everyone is playing exaggerated themselves helped crank up the laughs for me. Top notch production values. I don't usually like Seth Rogen movies, but this one gets a really high recommendation from me. 8.5/10

I didn't see a single trailer, and I think I enjoyed it more because of it. It was nice seeing a movie without knowing practically anything about it.

Before Midnight - I don't know what it says about me or the state of films in general when the blockbusters released this summer (Iron Man 3, "Star Trek" Into Darkness) have mostly bored the fuck out of me and a that film I was so excited for (Man of Steel, which I still haven't seen) I now couldn't care less about (especially after WB pulled this shite: http://io9.com/is-man-of-steel-all-abou ... -513484485); meanwhile an extremely talkie low budget third part of a trilogy that mostly nobody saw is probably the best and most exciting film I've seen all year. The last thirty minutes alone were better, by far, than anything I've seen in theaters this year (and probably last year too). It's also one of the most honest and realistic portrayals of an adult romantic relationship you're likely to see in any medium. Anyway, 9/10, but see Before Sunrise, and Before Sunset first.

Next week-end I'm seeing Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing.

Still holding out some hope and measured excitement for Pacific Rim and Wolverine. Elysium is high on my watch list as well, but I doubt that will disappoint.

I have zero interest in Thor 2 (couldn't remember the first one 5 minutes after leaving the theater) or Captain America 2.

That's not the first time the Superman/Jesus rubbish has been tossed around, and probably won't be the last.

Oh I know that, he just fits the archetype, same as Neo, Hercules, or whoever. They just shove it down your throat with this movie and are promoting it as a Christian film.

Much Ado About Nothing - Joss Whedon does Shakespeare in one location, in black and white, on a minuscule budget, with his regulars from TV shows and movies. It took me about 20-30 minutes to get used to the language (i.e. to understand WTF was going on) but from there it was smooth sailing. It's also quite funny. 8.5/10

Doctor Strange - Surprisingly great (as opposed to just good). The visuals alone are worth the admission price.

Manchester by the Sea - Masterpiece, 10/10. That being said, it was so fucking depressing I can't imagine ever wanting to put myself through that again.

Rogue One - Generic fanfic with high production values. It has its moments. 7/10

La La Land - Great musical opening. The rest of the film is self-indulgent wanking. I was in the mood for a good old-fashioned musical. This wasn't it. I feel like everyone else has seen a different version of the movie. 6/10

Fantastic Beasts - There's a cute little mole thing that likes to steal everything. I can't remember anything else. 6/10

The Mule - Australian crime movie wherein Hugo Weaving waits for a guy to take a shite. 8/10
