  • Favorite movie of 2012

    Hi all,

    I thought it would be interesting to create a list of you top 5 or so favorite movies. Just list them below and feel free to repost a list lower if you leave any out.

    Mine are:
    6:Life of Pi
    Great acting
    a beautiful art design
    great theme: Does God exist?
    5: The Dark Knight Rises
    great performances across the board. Most notably Michael Caine as Alfred.
    Phenomenal action sequences
    Only problem here was the shoehorned ending that tried to please everyone.
    4: Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Excellent performances by all, especially the little girl
    great, emotionally gripping story
    3: The Avengers
    What more is there to say besides: everything a Marvel fanboy would want from an Avengers movie
    Whedon did a great job playing characters off of eachother
    Excellent acting and action sequences
    Phenomenal script
    2: Argo
    brilliant story
    perfect balance b/w comedy and intense drama
    fantastic acting across the board
    1: Cabin in the Woods
    brilliant, original story that transcends several genres and satirizes all of them simultaneously
    fantastic acting
    Hilarious scenes: bong scene
    brilliant, yet relentless pacing

    1. Looper
    2. Safety Not Guaranteed
    3. Moonrise Kingdom
    4. Beasts of the Southern Wild
    5. Cloud Atlas

    Notes:
    Haven't seen Life of Pi yet, but I did enjoy the book when I read it a few years ago.
    Sarah Breaker > Barry Wheeler. Yep, I went there!

        For my territory that's a 2013 movie... have to wait a few more weeks before I can go see it.

          If it makes you feel any better I saw it.

          Oh, and it may be worth waiting for. That too.

            I missed out on a few "hits" from 2012 but Moonrise Kingdom was no doubt my favorite of the ones I've seen.

              After seeing a couple more movies I'm gonna have to amend this. 9.)The Dark Knight Rises, 8.) Life of Pi, 7.) Looper, 6.) The Avengers, 5.) Argo, 4.) Zero Dark Thirty (limited release. I know that wide release wasn't until 2013), 3.) Cabin in the Woods, 2.) Beasts of the Southern Wild, and finally 1.) Safety Not Guaranteed. I might change this again b/c I'm going to watch Moonrise Kingdom.
