Every Film I Watched in 2012: Part 1

Don't ask me why but I've decided it would be a great idea to share with you every single film I watched (for the first time) in 2012. If you are wondering why there are so many found footage films, click the links to find out. If I've reviewed them then click the title to be magically whisked away to the destination of that review.

I am splitting this post into two because before I got married and went on honeymoon, I was only writing short reviews on this here blog. In the second part of the year I started reviewing for Filmoria and Static Mass Emporium so if you would like to read my thoughts, just click the links.

So this is the first part of my year before I became a married man and started writing for other websites. To see the list of the final 73 films I watched, please click here.
