No point in me comparing which film is worse than another. All of these are mediocre to grabasstic pieces of amphibian shit.

1. The Master
2. Moonrise Kingdom
3. Lincoln
4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
5. Zero Dark Thirty
6. Cloud Atlas
7. Looper
8. Beasts of the Southern Wild
9. Django Unchained
10. The Cabin in the Woods

It opened in its native Mexico in late 2011, as well as some film festivals, and the U.K. but as an American I, like most movie critics and the Academy Awards among others, go by first release in American theaters. Miss Bala played for the first time in public theaters in the U.S. on January 20th, 2012.

Just so you know magjournal, you can edit your lists instead of reposting each minor change separately and that is the preferred method for updating.

Sorry, lol. I try to update as infrequently as possible so as not to flood the thread or anything. I really only update like once a month and only if there are substantial changes to my list.

How can you have a best films of 2012 thread that is first posted in 2011? That is cheating. What if I were to post a best of 2014, 2015, 2016, etc...threads today. Then every other best of the year thread for those years would be closed? That's ridiculous. I think this is the thread that should have been closed and my thread should have remained open.
