My father was right. The older you get, the faster time goes. One minute, you’re sneaking into R-rated movies with your buddies, the next, you’re threatening the 13-year-old asshat behind you in the theater for kicking your seat. So much happened these past 12 months, good and bad, it’s hard to know where to begin. As a film critic, it was tough to see one of the most significant icons in my industry pass away this year. Whether or not I agreed with Roger Ebert (it was honestly a coin flip), the man was a spectacular writer and became the face of a profession I truly adore. So, here’s to 2013 (thus far) and to all the thumb ups and downs in every aspect of our lives. –Jimmy Martin
