The "Catch-Up List"

It was proving impossible to catch up on everything I've seen over the past few months one at a time, so here's a huge "Catch-Up List." There are many movies on here I would have loved to have spent a considerable amount more time on and some that are getting exactly the amount of attention they deserve. If you don't see a recent movie on here you're looking for, it either got a full review (which you can find here) or I haven't seen it yet. Look for My Top 10 Movies of 2012 and My 2012 Academy Award Picks coming soon! For now, enjoy catching up on 34 movies with me!
