Happy Winter Solstice! And happy beginning of the Fourth Age, according to the Long Count Calendar of the Maya!

(In case you're looking for some "holiday" listening, my analysis of the pop culture phenomenon surrounding 2012 - from history to science to fantasy - is available in two of my "Looking Back on Genre History" segments for StarShipSofa: "2012, Part 1" and "2012, Part 2.")


What 2013 films are you looking forward to the most?
Poll #1886199 What 2013 films are you looking forward to the most?

What 2013 films are you looking forward to the most?




Here's my list of the 2013 films I'm most anticipating and their opening dates:

Mama (January 18)
Beautiful Creatures (February 13)
The Last Exorcism, Part II (March 1)
The Host (March 29)
Oblivion (April 19)
** Star Trek into Darkness (May 17)
Much Ado About Nothing (June 7)
The Conjuring (July 19)
Red 2 (August 2)
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (August 23)
** The World's End (October 25)
** Ender's Game (November 1)
** The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (November 22)
** The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (December 13)
** How I Live Now (2013 Date TBA)

** I plan to see this in the theater.
[Note: These days I much prefer watching films in our home media room, with a glass of wine or a cup of tea and my sweetheart and Boston terrier at my side, rather than in the theater, where I can only hope (in vain?) that the other audience members won't talk/text/arrive late. Don't I sound like an old curmudgeon? LOL. But now and again I make an exception, when I simply can't wait for the DVD. 2013 looks to be an especially promising year.]

Hm, apparently the poll answers can't be changed. Mine should be "Chasing Ice," not "Following Ice."

I know! I only found out about it very recently. I'm anxious to learn when it will be released. I love the novel, so this will be a "must see," I think.

Ugh...I can't believe I have to wait until *June* for Much Ado...Clark's been talking about it FOREVER.
