Eric D. Snider looks at patterns in 2012 movies. Some highlights:

Movies in which a man puts his fingers in another’s man mouth: 21 Jump Street, American Reunion, The Three Stooges, Holy Motors

Movies in which archery is prominent: The Avengers, Brave, The Hunger Games, Moonrise Kingdom

Movies in which someone vomits during a public performance, and then sees video of the incident go viral on YouTube: Pitch Perfect, Here Comes the Boom

Movies in which John Goodman swept through the place, did a couple scenes, and instantly improved the film by at least 20%: Argo, Trouble with the Curve, Flight

The ideal 2012 movie would have featured John Goodman as a vomiting Friar Tuck in a modern-day retelling of Robin Hood.
