5 Blockbusters I am literally squeeing in anticipation of in 2012.

I don’t know whether it’s just that whoever is doing the trailers at the moment is brilliant or what but I am excited for movies this year. 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for blockbusters with some of the most anticipated films ever hitting our screens.

These films need little introduction; you’ve probably already been saturated with propaganda but goodness they’re captivating. These are the films that cause people to line the streets for hours and I am not even ashamed to say that I will be one of those people. So without further ado these are the five films my fangirl heart is beating for in 2012.

Recognition Matters: A response to Supernatural's recent snub at the PCA's

I have always been a fangirl. Even before I knew there was a term for it.

I think I was eight when I first realised that the way I felt about TV shows, movies and books was different to the way other people felt. I realised that caring the way that I cared about fictional characters was considered a bit weird if not delusional. I accepted this because I have always been seen as a little bit weird so adding another item to my list of quirks wasn’t the worst thing that could happen.

But being a fan isn’t all of it because I am also a fan of something very specific; Sci-Fi and Fantasy two things that have been and still are associated with childhood.
