Aaron’s 2012 Ira Ballot

So, I guess it’s my turn. I don’t have many comments, aside from saying that in my ironic awards I was not targeting movies that you love, Alex—it’s just that you happen to love garbage movies (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Flight). There are some nice overlaps on our lists. I think we only disagree on a handful of important titles:
