My Top 10 Favorite Movies from Summer 2012 (Chris Bumbray)

And so, the summer of 2012 is finally winding down. Going into it, many of us were overwhelmed by the incredible number of huge tent pole films being released, and sure enough- in terms of box office dollars 2012 was relatively boffo. The biggest battle of the year was, as predicted, between Marvels THE AVENGERS, which went from being a tent-pole movie into a cultural phenomenon, and Christopher Nolans THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, the release of which was tragically tainted by the mass murder in Aurora.

Personally, I found the summer of 2012 to be just average. I loved both AVENGERS and TDKR, but upon going through a list of the other summer movies, I found that of the big films, those were really the only two that were pretty much unanimously acclaimed, with the others being a mixed bag. But- there were still a lot of good movies to come out, and the following is my top 10 list- including one dishonorable mention for good measure.

Really?

Spiderman 3 was complete gold compared to this piece of sh*t film. The entire movie was soooo boring! What I don't get is that there was such a HUGE negative uproar that Venom was just thrown in the last few minutes of Spiderman 3... well thats exactly what they did with this film's villain (don't even remember which villain it was).

Just wanna thank Joblo for not making the entire page load each time I click the right button on these types of articles.

Haven't seen Lawless yet but 100% agree with everything else.

Decent list, but I still have some catching up to do with the American summer releases.
