    A Year of Essential Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 9:1. Inspired by the chronological charting of film, and the vast history of world cinema, as presented by Mark Cousin's superb 'A Story of Film: An Odyssey', I have decided to make 2012 the year where I finally get to watch those recognised classics and take a bite out of the canon. Follow me as I take on the world of cinema from the silent era to the explosion of the talkies, through the golden age of Hollywood to the uprising of new wave cinema across Europe and worldwide, the uprising of the movie brats to the dawn of independent film making right through to the current digital boom. This list will constantly be updated throughout the year. January - 1895 - 1927 February - 1928 - 1936 March - 1937 - 1946 April - 1947 - 1954 May - 1955 - 1962 June - 1963 - 1967 July - 1968 - 1972 August - 1973 - 1979 September - 1980 - 1987 October - 1988 - 1995 November - 1996 - 2002 December - 2003 - Present

    The Canon

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. What films should be included in the list of all-time greats? Film critic Amy Nicholson (MTV News) and a guest debate, discuss and sometimes harmoniously agree about whether a film should be Canon-ized. Ultimately, the decision is yours. Cast your vote in the Earwolf forums, and decide the legacy of each movie forevermore. No pressure.
