FELIXDICIT’s ‘X of 2012’

As the clock is slowly ticking away, counting down the final moments of this year, it is time to recap 2012. What movies, what games or what albums were either very good, or very bad. As I can’t have total knowledge of everything that was released the last 366 days, I will stick with whatever I’ve seen, listened to or played.

Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively  Director:  Oliver Stone Genre: Drama Runtime: 131 minutes In Holland, weed is legal (except, strangely, for growing).

The drugs-market is controlled by criminals. Not just some criminals, but mostly Mexican gangbangers. The kind that will rip your throat out if you ever cross their paths on a bad day. And put a video of it on the internet. And dump your body below...
