Best Historical and Biographical Films of 2012
Over the years, films have not only captured audiences imaginations through various musicals, fantasy, science fiction, dramas and other genres....it has also served as a medium to recreate events to tell stories based on real life historical figures and events that have transpired throughout our history. Some of these great films often range from the likes of "JFK", "Schindler's List", "Malcolm X" to even "W." Indeed, to say that the "Biographical and Historical" films have played a huge role in the film industry would be a tragic understatement, to say the least. That's why I'm proud to present the best biographical and historical films of 2012 here.
Unlike last year, I've taken the liberty of categorizing these previews, so you might start to notice some of these films falling in multiple genres; hence a film like "Lincoln" would be in "Best Dramas of 2012" as well. This is because I can't assume everyone that reads this hub will automatically want to read "Best Dramas of 2012", and vice versa.
Unfortunately, none of these films have any trailers yet, but I will be adding them as soon as they're available. I do apologize.
Also, be sure to check your local listings, as release dates are subject to change.
