Toss the old thread out the window, Overthinkers, and Open up a new one!
Not a whole heck of a lot going on in pop culture this week, aside from the wide release of some Oscar-bait films (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Iron Lady, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, etc). So let’s make this Open Thread more like an Open Thread and start with some questions.
First: with the gift-giving season winding down, what was your favorite pop culture gift this year? I’ll start: mine was Skyrim. Expect some additional Overthink on the Elder Scrolls series coming soon.
Second: what was the most interesting or entertaining piece of pop culture you consumed in 2011? Was it a new band, a cool movie, an engaging book or a fun video game? Share it with the rest of us! We’re people of taste and discernment.
Third: what are you anticipating for 2012? What’s got you shaky with anticipation? For me, it’s the film adaptation of The Hunger Games. But The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers should also be popular. How about you?
And is there anything else you want to make sure you get out before 2011? If so, sound off in the comments, for this is your … Open Thread.
