You might know (especially if you read my ♥ This Week's Loves ♥ posts) that I go to the cinema A LOT.

I love movies. I'm a daydreamer and I love to escape into a good story. I like them as a form of entertainment and although I have an opinion on storylines and performances, I think that if you spend too much time analysing something, you can often miss out on the fun.

This has been a busy year at the cinema for me. I saw 64 films in 2012, which seems a lot less than I thought it'd be! But it averages 5.3 a month, so that's pretty good! I have a Cineworld Unlimited card which allows me to see as many films as I like for only £14.99 a month, and if I'd seen these films individually it would have cost me over £550, so it was well worth it!

As well as seeing all those movies, I also saw the NTL recordings of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time and both version of Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller.  These BLEW ME AWAY. I love the theatre and it's brilliant to have access to performances of this standard in the cinema. National Theatre Live brings big theatre productions to an audience which otherwise may not have the time, money or opportunity to see them and that is a really good thing in my eyes.

Here are the films I saw in 2012 (my top picks are in bold, but it's just my opinion!):
