Thumbs up 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:

1. Argo 14
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
Anna Karenina 4
Hitchcock 3
The Woman in Black 2
Les Miserables 1
Cabin in the Woods 5
Holy Motors 4
Wreck it Ralph 8
The Avengers 22
The Amazing Spiderman 7
Judge Dredd 3D 3
Rust and Bone 2
End of Watch 1
Seven Pyschopaths 5
The Raid 4

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.

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.

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.
