  3. The Wizard of Oz is one of your favorite movies? How awesome are you? ;-) I get a lot of grief because of my love for that movie. Ha ha.

    1. @Quirky BookandFilmBuff: There's no shame in loving Wizard of Oz :)
      Though I have mixed feelings about Oz: The Great and Powerful (2013), which will be out soon.

      By the way, I figured out the design issues on my blog, and I think it overall looks a lot cleaner now. I've removed most of the clutter on the sidebar, and changed the template.

  7. @Shep. Burman: You're welcome, and likewise, thanks for link, which I did know about, but maybe some of my readers are not aware of, and would like to enter.

    I still have not seen a bunch of my most anticipated 2012 films(I go by IMDb year): Frances Ha, Liberal Arts, Zero Dark Thirty, The Hunt, Safety Not Guaranteed, Laurence Anyways, Sister, John Dies At The End, & Compliance. Also some docs: Stories We Tell, Room 237, West of Memphis, 56 Up.
    They all have top 10 list potential in my case, so I really can't do my best list yet. Even though I'd like to :)
