movies, 2012

As is usually the case, I’m at least a year behind on recent movies, so it’s silly to make a Top Ten list for the current year. Therefore, I end up posting a year-before Top Ten list (last year I did 2011 and chose Attack the Block as the best movie of 2011).

One problem with these lists is that I’m at the mercy of MovieLens, which decides which movies are from 2012. Thus, I could be missing something that is listed as coming out in 2011 or 2013 but is actually from 2012. Anyway, here are my Top Ten movies of 2012, in alphabetical order:

  • Amour
  • Argo
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • The Cabin in the Woods
  • Django Unchained
  • The Invisible War
  • Lincoln
  • Searching for Sugar Man
  • Skyfall
  • Zero Dark Thirty

(My least-favorite of the 2012 movies I’ve seen: Premium Rush.)
