Lists of Five
This week our Lists of Five: The Five Films we Enjoyed The Most in 2012. Forget the best films of 2012, what did we actually enjoy the most.
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.

We are closing the show with part of Howard Shore’s score for “The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey”.
The opening clip is from “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”.
Go see more movies, you don’t see enough movies and all of life’s questions are answered in the movies.
