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
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
