When I receive this it might replace one of the above, but which one would be a tough choice.

Has to be on the list as the movie is my all time favorite (thus far). I would have preferred a Pan's Labyrinth with Ofelia, but this one turned out really well.
Image

I saw this movie for the first time this year and it immediately became one of my favorites (top 10). I wasn't really aggressive in acquiring it, but it came my way in a trade, and as an afterthought I wish I had sought one out sooner.
Image


Another favorite movie that I was able to scratch off the list this year. I'm not typically a fan of Kevin Tongs movie posters, (IMO) they are a little too intricate, just not to my taste. But he went Outside-The-Box on this one and knocked it out of the park.
Image

So beautiful.
Image

I really loved to movie Thor, but before I saw it I was so sure I wouldn't that even though I really liked the poster I sat out on the drop. I ended up seeing Thor in the theater 3 times. :shock:
Image

Incoming contenders:
I haven't seen them with my own eyes yet but either of these could possibly replace posters above.

Easily the best movie I've seen in the past few years, and my first Jeff Boyes, who I've been eager to pick something up from.
Image

Another favorite movie, another poster knocked out of the park. This one could be favorite pick-up of the year.

Since it has to be limited to prints...

These three are tied for 3rd place:
ImageImageImage

Jay's Coronal Mass Extinction wants to be on that list, but I haven't seen it in person yet.

2nd place:

But the best print-thing that happened all year is...
