A Year in Film

December 26, 2012

2012 has turned out to be a big year for films. American history has gotten the tinsel town treatment, from the Civil War in Lincoln to the War on Terror in Zero Dark Thirty. 

Along the way an older, banged up 007 returned to the silver screen--a little shaken and stirred,  and a raunchy teddy bear upped the ante for romantic comedies.  All this, of course,  is just a sliver of what's graced our theaters this year.

Today three film critics join us to review the year in film and to offer their  "best-of" picks for 2012.
