Favorite Films of 2012
 
So what is everbody's top five films of 2012? I'm thinking about leaving this up for a few days, and then creating a poll, with top five five choices.

Scoring system like so:

5 points for #1
4 points for #2
ect.

This is kinda' hard because I haven't seen all the movies that I would like to have seen that came out this year, but I figure if I didn't see it within the year, well I reckon it don't gonna' count.

So me first:

2. Moonrise Kingdom 23
3. Lincoln 9
4. Killing Them Softly 2
5. Killer Joe 3

EDITS-

Looper 17
Premium Rush 3
The Dark Knight Rises 14
Silver Linings Playbook 6
Perks of Being a Wallflower 14
Django Unchained 6
The Grey 2
Prometheus 8
The Master 10
Life of Pi 6
Sleepwalk with Me 1
Skyfall 14
The Hobbit 23
Chicken With Plums 5

There are like 4 movies I care about, none of them are from this year and two of them are different takes on the same book. :shrug:

Omniscient G 01-04-2013 12:52 AM

A lot of porn

Mr.-Bungle 01-04-2013 01:17 AM

The perks of being a wall flower. Cried throughout it, great adaptation of the book (albeit different (Sam had no green eyes..:( )), shame it wasn't longer. Hoping for directors extended edition alas lord of the rings style with and extra hour hahaha.

My list:
Perks of being a wallflower.
Moonrise kingdom.
Prometheus (why the f$ck didn't they run to the side instead of letting it fall on them..?)

Sorry for not adding more, I went and watched a shit load of movies I missed out on in the passed decade. All those hidden gems. I saw dark knight rises, it was ok, would say its the top 3 though. And moonrise kingdom didn't catch me like Andersons previous work, but that'd be my second choice.

WCPhils 01-04-2013 01:29 AM

The Hobbit
Django Unchained
Skyfall

7. Man on a Ledge

King Donkey 01-04-2013 02:17 AM

I haven't seen many this year but I was really surprised to find that The Perks of Being a Wallflower was a brilliant film. Expected it to be one of those bland, overdone movies but it turned out that I really got into it. My friends felt the same way.

Oh and The Hobbit was good but it would be, I mean it's The Hobbit.

So, my list:

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Hobbit

That's because its based on a widely renowned book. It was directed by the writer funnily enough so yeah.

Macabre_Turtle 01-04-2013 02:31 AM

I haven't seen very many movies from this year, but I'll say that The Hobbit, The Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man are great and I'm having a love hate relationship with Dark Knight rises. I totally forgot that Perks of Being a Wallflower ever happened, so now I'll have to see that. I once turned a line from the book into a song lyric that became the basis of a three part concept song.

TheReverend724 01-04-2013 02:39 AM

Top 5:

Cabin in the Woods
Holy Motors
Wreck-It Ralph
Killer Joe
Moonrise Kingdom


Runner Up:

The Hobbit

WCPhils 01-04-2013 02:42 AM

Cabin in the Woods is from 2011, isn't it?

And I forgot about Wreck-It Ralph. That was great

lolmnt 01-04-2013 02:43 AM

Nope. 2012.

WCPhils 01-04-2013 02:45 AM

The IMDB page is wrong
