Angus' Top XX of 2012

(This was compiled on Jan 2nd 2014 but posted in sequence)

I’ve been running my ‘Top xx’ of the year posts since 2004 on Live Journal. It’s a personal review of the year of my favourite films, books and bands, and sometimes other things (such as dvds or clubs I’ve been to – when I once lived in London and went clubbing on a regular basis atleast – le sigh).

I usually post this at the beginning of January, but it’s not unusual to be a few days late due to me not usually being at home on the 1st.

I’ve realised the last actual list I posted was back in January 2011 covering 2010, so I’m going to play catch-up here.

This covers 2012 – but has been streamlined to only include cinema trips and gigs.

Anyway, here’s my rather belated Top 10 films of 2012…

Top 10 Films of 2012
10. Ted
9. The Amazing Spiderman
8. Skyfall
7. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
6. Prometheus
5. The Hunger Games
4. Dark Knight Rises

3. Chronicle
2. The Avengers
1. John Carter
2012 saw a big fall  in the number of films I saw at the cinema from 2011. Only 25 outings compared to 45 trips in 2011 and 49 trips in 2010, against 42 in 2009.

Gigs were a lot better in 2012 – mainly thanks to Reading Festival – so I managed to see a lot more bands than the previous couple of years.
Here are my top 10 live bands of 2012…

8. The Hives

3. I Am Avalanche

Anyway, that's it from 2012.
