My Top 10 Movies of 2012
My outlet may have changed, but I couldn’t let 2012 end without continuing my tradition of listing my top 10 movies of the year. As I said when I published last year’s list on Crushable, note that these are not what I’m calling the best films of 2012, but the ones that most entertained me. And while I have a fair bit of experience as a film critic, often if the movie is more entertaining than masterful, it will still make an impact on me.
Where applicable, I’ve linked out to more in-depth reviews/features I wrote on each film, since here I can give you only a short blurb to convince you to rent all of these. Let’s jump right in!
Honorable Mentions: If I could’ve, I would’ve included all three of this year’s major superhero movies on the list, but that seemed somewhat redundant. Still, The Amazing Spider-Man reinvigorated the Spidey origin tale for me, and The Dark Knight Rises was eerily prescient regarding both Occupy Wall Street and Hurricane Sandy. As psyched as I was for Django Unchained, it hit all my expectations but didn’t exceed them.
