Joe and Josh discuss Voice Acting and the Oscars

My Top 10 Films of 2012

Well, here we are. No sooner have I finished ranting against the entire concept of needlessly ranking vastly different movies into inherently devaluing lists, and I'm already contradicting myself in the name of conformity. Ah well, the more things change, eh?

It's fun to collect and connect things you love, and the inevitably absurd arguments over insignificant details like the numbering have their own charm within reason.
