For any film fan, Criterion is the tops as far as home video goes. It’s always a bit of an event when the Criterion Collection announces new titles as we know that whichever films are released, they’ll be presented in pristine condition with loads of fascinating extras. To ring in the New Year, Criterion has released a drawing that teases some of their upcoming 2013 titles. What ensues is a bit of a guessing game as to which pictures correspond to what movies. We were able to discern David Lynch’s Eraserhead, Guillermo del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone, Peter Brook’s Lord of the Flies, Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last! and Delmer Daves’ 3:10 to Yuma, but we’re hoping our fine Collider readers can help discern the rest.

Every year, The National Film Preservation Board selects 25 films to be added to the National Film Registry. These movies will be housed in the Library of Congress, and will be carefully preserved as part of American history. This year, the Board’s selections included Dirty Harry, The Matrix, Two-Lane Blacktop, Slacker, The Spook Who Sat By the Door, A Christmas Story, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and A League of Their Own. Personally, I’m surprised The Big Lebowski and Die Hard still haven’t made it in, especially when a movie like A League of Their Own can make it in. I love A League of Their Own, but it hasn’t had anywhere near the cultural impact as Lebowski or Die Hard.
