Why See This...Most Anticipated Films of 2012

What many people look forward to in the New Year is the idea of a fresh start.  The physical act of swapping last year’s calendar, covered in ink and scribble marks of varying importance in exchange for a brand new, never been touched replacement can be both reassuring and gratifying.  Resolutions are made and become one’s priority for the next couple weeks (or days...) in an effort to begin the new year on the right foot.  Regardless, the new year always comes forth with its fair share of optimism.
      For me, the joy of a new year comes in the form of movies.  Its comes on many different levels too.  Whether its the long awaited witnessing of the next PTA or Quentin Tarantino film to childhood favorites returning in the form of sequels (Men In Black III), I often define a year by the movies that were released that year. Below is a list of the movies I am most looking forward to and hoping to see in the new year.  If there's one a missed, let me know.  Further details for each individual movie are forthcoming.
     + Because many of these movies do not have definitive release dates, I decided it would be easiest to order them alphabetically.
