Howard's 2012 Movie Rankings

Here, listed in decreasing order of "how much fun I had in the theater," are the films I saw during 2012. It's an incredibly subjective scale, and it's difficult to keep things straight over the course of twelve entire months. It's possible, however, that this scale will be useful to you.

At the very least you'll know what kind of horrible stuff I enjoy to watch.

My Threshold of Awesome begins at Premium Rush and goes up. My Threshold of Disappointment begins at Resident Evil and goes down.
