Are You Team 2012 or Team 2013?

Really quickly: The start of the year is always a weird time, especially this year with Oscar nomination announcement date moved up (it’s on Thursday, about two weeks before usual).

No Oscar for Stiller, Please!

(FYI, thoughts on the Sons of Anarchy finale are at the bottom because it’s spoiler-heavy …) Suffice it to say, I’m still catching up on 2010 movies.
