I hate being wrong. Really hate it.
The only thing I hate more than being wrong is publicly admitting I’m wrong.
And, man, when it comes to how 2012 played out at the movies matched up against what I’d predicted in my end-of-2011 box office wrap-up, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
“Want a prediction for 2012 at the movies?” I wrote. “It’s going to look a lot like 2011. An awful lot…the creative machinery is broke…The reviewers will wail, the ‘serious’ cineastes will weep.”
The upside is that sometimes you’re glad you were wrong. This is one of those times. I don’t hear much weeping, not from the reviewers, not from the serious cineastes, not from the studios, and certainly not from me.
By any relevant measure – box office, quality of releases, admissions – 2013 has been the best year for the American movie business in a long, »
