    Best movies of 2012

    Like every year this comes with the proviso that I didn't see everything (because few really do). That said, my top 10 movies that I saw this year are as follows:

    1. Moonrise Kingdom
    2. Bernie (2012 US release)
    3. Cabin in the Woods
    4. Django Unchained
    5. Looper
    6. Argo
    7. Holy Motors
    8. Beasts of the Sothern Wild
    9. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
    10. The Flowers of War (2012 US Wide release, even though it technically hit a couple US cities in December 2011).

    The worst film: The Vow


    This order is subject to change as I remember things and people inevitably tell me that I was stupid and forgot something.

    Before we go there, I didn't forget about "The Master." It's a purposeful omission. I have not seen Silver Linings Playbook, Lincoln (no real desire on that one), or Life of Pi. I suspect I wouldn't really like them in all honesty with SLP having the highest potential to surprise me. Among films I have not seen most likely to crack this list are Zero Dark Thirty

    Chronicle, Avengers, Dark Knight Rises. Only three new movies I've seen and I liked em. I would probably like Django Unchained and that Hobbit Movie if I saw em.

    Moonrise Kingdom was a charming little flick but the fact that it made anyone's favorite movie of the year is a testament to how bad films were this past year.

    Wes Anderson's student film (Bottle Rocket) was better than Moonrise Kingdom.

    There were several movies with better acting or a more complete storyline, but none were as entertaining as the Avengers.

    My list would be close to this except add The Silver Linings Playbook and Abraham Lincoln in the top 3.


    Am I really the first to talk about both of these movies?!?!

    Kicky, you must see both of those.
