      I would concour with these score, and I still got a lot to rest from this year.

      One stand out movie I would add is Moonrise Kingdom 8/10, was very cool to watch.

      A shame The Raven didn't turn out better, had a lot of cool stuff to it.
      I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

                        Ah, that's too bad, I shouldn't been surprised, my wife didn't care for it either. I really liked it's quirky straight faced presentation, but that style isn't for everyone I guess.

                        I rather liked Snow White and the Huntsman myself, tho not surprised at the hate either guess.
                        I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

                              Actually, you as much as said you like this sort of movie, I just didn't get what your post meant at the time. My bad.
