In the run-up to Oscar Sunday, the good people of The Iron List (that's, um, my husband Matt Karp and me) have wasted a good portion of the week evaluating the films of 2012, because this is something you do for a billion years or not at all. If you have ever wondered what we think of Tom Hardy's turbo-neck, Charlize Theron's push-up form, and Channing Tatum's helicopter dance, not to mention the comparative violence of orca whales, American empire, and dying slowly at home, well, now you know. Scroll back through all the posts for the opinions of our valued friends and colleagues as we discuss the additional themes of high school reunions, bromance, public urination, and children in peril. Sometimes garbage flew in our face, but on the whole, we had a really good time.
