241. Twenty Twelve

So the world didn't end with a massive tsunami wiping out all of humanity, and the few lucky of us being ushered away on massive floating city-boats. Good for us.

Since we've all ascertained that the world hasn't ended just yet, here's a couple of things to look forward to this year.

Noteworthy mentions...

World War Z - Max Brook's brilliant apocalyptic zombie epic gets the big screen treatment with none other than Mr. Tyler Durden as the main protagonist caught in a world-wide conspiracy.

Never really a big fan of Marvel studio adaptations, but heck, it's Joss Whedon (he of Serenity awesomeness), so you just gotta give it a shot.

Bourne Legacy - Jeremy Renner takes over the franchise. He was great in The Hurt Locker, so-so in MI4, and a totally bad-ass loser in The Town.

Dark Shadows - I'm still willing to give Tim Burton a shot. Only because he gave us Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Ed Wood and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Heck, even his second tier films (Batman Returns, Mars Attacks, Big Fish, Sleepy Hollow) were pretty decent. But Mr. Burton, no more turds like Planet of the Apes and Alice in Wonderland please.

Happy 2012 folks, and of course I didn't forget this...
