Top 10 Movies of 2012 (JimmyO)

Earlier this year while putting together my list for best films of the summer, I mistakenly said that this had not been a great year. In hindsight, 2012 was a pretty damn terrific one. The past twelve months have offered so many great films that it was difficult to narrow it down to ten of my favorites. Even still, I missed out on LOOPER, THE MASTER and DJANGO UNCHAINED, which may have changed my list considerably.

From politics to romance, even a musical, there was so much that made me thankful for movies this year. It would have been easier to put together a list of twenty films as opposed to ten. Other titles that were favorites of mine that didnt quite make this list include THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, LAWLESS, WEST OF MEMPHIS, MARLEY, RISE OF THE GUARDIANS, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, THE GREY, CABIN IN THE WOODS and END OF WATCH. Wait a minute? Even just twenty films would have been difficult to narrow down as there were quite a few others that made this a great year to go to the movies.

Of course, there were those flicks on the opposite end of the spectrum. This included the miserably bad THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY and HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET as well as the painfully unfunny comedies THINK LIKE A MAN and PARENTAL GUIDANCE. And if only I could forget ONE FOR THE MONEY starring Katherine Heigl oh wait, I did forget it.

Enough of that, onward and upward, here are my favorite films of the year. Agree? Disagree? Share your thoughts in the comment section. Either way, heres looking forward to 2013!

Sadly, that is one of the ones I missed. The beauty and the burden of having more than one critic for a site is the same, you don't have to see ALL the movies that come out, only the ones that are assigned. Often times because of that, you don't get a chance to see some really great films until later on because you are covering something else. Same point for the bad films, for example, I also didn't see Guilt Trip.
