Favorite Films of 2012

Postby Leirin » Tue Nov 20, 2012 6:11 am

This might be a little early since it's not December yet, but I'd like to see what you guys have to say. Personally, I really enjoyed all the movies I saw this year. If I had to rank them, it'd be something like this:

1. Wreck-It Ralph
2. ParaNorman
3. Brave
4. The Avengers
5. The Secret World of Arrietty
6. The Hunger Games
7. Frankenweenie
8. The Amazing Spider-Man
9. The Dark Knight Rises
10. The Adventures of Tintin

My top 5 so far this year:

1. ParaNorman
2. Moonrise Kingdom
3. Looper
4. The Avengers
5. Brave

I'm still waiting to see a few movies that I've been anticipating (Cloud Atlas, Flight, Guardians) before I do a full top 10.

Nice. I really wanted to see Moonrise Kingdom. I might get around to that soon...
Hope you get to see the rest of those btw!

You liked Amazing Spider-Man more than TDKR, Hi-five.

I found it more entertaining. I love them both though, to be honest.

This will totally change once I see Les Miserables! But here it is so far.

1. Lincoln
2. The Avengers
3. Wreck-it Ralph
4. The Dark Knight Rises
5. Brave

There was a lot more movies I saw, but I don't want to list them all. There's also a lot more that I need to see.

I'm glad you liked Wreck-It Ralph!

I also just saw The Hobbit, and it could probably squeeze in somewhere in my top 10.

I still need to see Skyfall and Les Mis, but my favorite film of 2012 would probably have to be Frankenweenie or The Amazing Spider Man, with Wreck-It Ralph and Brave at a close second.

^I hope that you see Les Miserables soon! I too need to see Skyfall as well.

I'm seeing The Hobbit tomorrow, so I wonder where that will fit!

Very interesting to read your lists.

Skyfall, go watch Skyfall! :D The Hobbit's not too bad, either, but don't drink beforehand or you're gonna suffer/miss some parts! And I watched Les Mis yesterday, I might write a review time permitting.

I really want to see Les Miserables and Skyfall too! The Hobbit looks ok, but I think I'll give it a miss because I'm not really into Lotr and it's related movies/books.

Yay! I like how diverse our lists ended up being. And that Frankenweenie is getting love.

^^ Frankenweenie is awesome! I went in expecting a lot, since one of my favorite films of all time, The Nightmare Before Christmas, was also a Tim Burton stop motion. I wasn't disappointed. It was unique, fun and the black and white was something I really liked. I'm so glad to see it getting it's own little share of the Fan Love Pie!
