I'm not sure how to even rank the movies to be honest but I really liked Skyfall, Django Unchained, Silver Linings Playbook, Argo, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper, 21 Jump Street, Jack Reacher and Chronicle, not in any particular order.
I hated The Watch. I can't recommend against watching this movie enough. I enjoyed Avengers but it was pretty much garbage imo. And I liked Cabin in the Woods but I'm not really sure how much. I got it. I'd just need to see it again though.
These are the only ones I recall seeing this year and for me, I'd rank the top three, again in no particular order, as SLP, Looper and Argo.
Edit...I guess I'd go in this order based off of what I've seen.
2. Silver Linings Playbook
4. Django Unchained
7. and so on
I already pre-ordered and will receive in a couple of months The Master, Flight, Lincoln, Life of Pi, and Seven Psychopaths
Edit 2: I forgot I saw The Hunger Games. Holy cow that movie was garbage. Not even entertaining really,
