This year was so hard, and I still have many more films to see from it. I could pick 10 strong nominees in almost all of these categories, but some people had to be left off, unfortunately. Some films I still need to see include The Wind Will Carry Us, Audition, Dogma, The End of the Affair, Angela's Ashes, The Hurricane, Tumbleweeds, Snow Falling on Cedars, Flawless, Happy, Texas, and eXistenZ.

Peter Travers, or the critic you often see quoted in advertisements or on DVD cases. Sometimes a quote of my own pops out at me, but I try to avoid writing that way. Some of these quotes are more akin to Travers than others, but I thought this would be a fun post.

|Cumberbatch and Freeman as Holmes and Watson.|
In honor of Star Trek Into Darkness' release in a few days, here's a post related to Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the villain in J.J Abrams' new film. Though this is a TV series, each episode is really a 90-minute film for television, so I don't mind bending the rules.
