My Films of 2012

I’ve never really had a best movies of the year list before, because I’ve never really felt that into film – but now winds have changed. You lucky people! I can’t imagine the baited breath that’s been building up.

I am not judging on artistic expertise or anything – just the films I’ve enjoyed the most this year – and those I recommend you check out if you’ve not seen them. The Imposter is an absolute must (and don’t read up on it before hand – the less you know the better.

21 Jump Street
Who’d have thought Channing Tatum could lead a good movie

Ciara Aaron – Wonderland

I just had an email alert telling me that Ciara was playing a tiny coffee shop in Earls Court. I think not. Upon checking it turns out it’s a girl called Ciara Aaron. I know nothing about her other than she has 126 fans on facebook and last posted a song on Soundcloud a year ago. She is not exactly primed for the Sound of 2013 list.

But – this song is properly amazing
