22The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I have over seen 400 movies and this is one of my all-time favorites. Its spooky watching how much I identify with the main character and that the love interest is played by my only real celebrity crush. The fact that it takes place in 1991-1992 is why I think its perfect because it doesn't have any annoying technology and social media sites that ruin all other high school movies. Awesome acting and dialouge, this is how you make a Great High School movie!

An amazing movie definitely my favourite movie of 2012. I tear up even when I think about this great movie. It has one of the best movie quotes. "we accept the love we think we deserve. " and the whole cast is extremely likeable especially the main three Charlie, Sam, and Patrick. There is no way this classic of a film should be near This Means War or Ice Age Contintental drift. You guys have to vote it up!

I have seen hundreds of films. Some claimed as the best and greatest films of all time.

This is the best movie I have ever seen in my entire life. This movie literally haunts my thoughts throughout my day, sometimes making me feel like Charlie seeing things.

This film is so real and fluid, and heartfelt and tragic, and full of heart, that it is literally impossible to describe. While watching this film and reflecting on it afterwards I best describe it as a much happier version of my own life. This movie still brings tears to my eyes after several viewings.

One of the best movies I have seen in my life, out of the hundreds I have seen. I am 16 years old and I have had a tough time in high school. I have always been a really shy kid and I can relate to Charlie so much. Great movie.

23Moonrise Kingdom

Voting for this movie because it was great and also because I haven't seen any of the ones in the top list but have wanted to since they all came out

So I was scrolling down looking, and I almost gave up on finding a movie I like a lot (except Hunger games) and then MOONRISE KINGDOM! I love this move so much. I've watched it like a million times! I can't BELIEVE this isn't NUMBER 1 (except for the hunger games) I mean really this movie is by FAR the best on this list (except Hunger games! ) I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

This is the kind of movie people like me watch, so people like you think I have bad taste.

Definitely my favorite. - BeatlesFan1964

24The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part II

None of the fighting was real, unfortunately. It was actually interesting for a while. - VicarSlayer23

Lily James would have made a better Bella than the mo they found.

What the hell is Twilight doing on this list?

This movie is the best

25Hotel Transylvania

Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count's teen-aged daughter.

I don't know why everyone hates it, I think it's a (mostly) funny movie, I loved the characters (except for Jonathan who got on my nerves sometimes, and the animation is awesome.

Finally not a bad Adam sandler movie

This movie is awesome I give it a 9.2 ( points off for the bad songs)

26Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Great movie! Hilarious & funny; suitable for all ages & recommend to anyone it's a must see and has a good rating out of 5... So many funny parts & some sad but turns out good:).

School is out and Greg is ready for the days of summer, when all his plans go wrong. What on earth is he going to do all summer?

Needs to be number 1 here! Sweetie is funny and it was also funny when Greg and Rowley were SCREAMING their lungs out when they were on the Cranium Shaker.

This is a great movie. HILARIOUS

27Chronicle

Whilst attending a party, three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.

Absolutely amazing, not hard to beat, best film about somebody going absolutely Fecking mad

One of my favorite movies of all time and that's saying something considering how new the movie is and how much of an impact it had on me.

Scary and a unique experience which is a one of a kind

I quite like this, with the lights ON of course! - Britgirl

29Rise of the Guardians

Jack Frost The Easter Bunny and much more children will love and it helps build imagination what a great movie.

It's a great family movie! It had a great story line! The voices were perfect, well done and well chosen, and the animation couldn't have been beat! Every character was beautiful and had so much detail!
The frost prints on Jack Frost's hoodie, to the markings on the Easter Bunny's fur, to the Tooth Fairy's every detail on her feathers, to Santa's tattoo's to Sandman's robe to Pitch's hair! It was all excellent!
I would highly request everyone who is reading this to try it out and see what you think!

HOW CAN THIS NOT BE IN THE TOP FIVE?! IT IS SO GOOD! As soon as I watched it, I knew that I would love this movie.

What is this. Oh yeah a movie I forgot about

30Prometheus

The dark chilling atmosphere and mystifying plot make Prometheus far more than your average Sci-Fi movie.

Quite simply the best film in recent times. There is no disputing Prometheus' intriguing mystery and it leaves you wanting to see more, and more, and more.

How is this all the way down here? Easily the best movie of 2012, way better than the dark knight rises.

31Battleship

Much much better than I thought. Great Job. Watched it several times and recommend it to everyone.

Amazing movie! The storyline was unbelievable! Incredibly realistic plot! By far the most badass movie of the year.

If you didn't watch this movie, then lucky for you, cause it sucks. After all, what do you expect from a movie based on a board game?

This is stupid. Poke balls destroying cities

32Hugo

Did you ever wonder why it is not in the top ten? It is a 2011 film, not a 2012 film. Try the Best Movies of 2011 list.

Hugo should be at least fifth come on people you guys have a bad taste in movies

I think it is a movie which you would watch if you are bored. I didn't have the pacience

33Seven Psychopaths

Sad to say, best movie of they year. Lincoln may be close but lacks integrity on the storyline. This is just a fun, entertaining movie

This is without doubt the best movie of 2012. Extremely Underrated. An overlooked gem. Brilliant screenplay, Top-notch direction and memorable performnces. Sam Rockwell's best performance by far. A must-watch

34The Expendables 2

I never expect The Expendables 2 just ranked 25! This is legend movie and the actor is the legend actors. Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude van Damme, Chuck Norris, Jason Statam, Jet Li, Scott Adkins, Dolph Lundgren IN ONE MOVIE! I can't stop watch this movie since I started know about Chuck Norris. So much actions and make me laugh sometimes. You must watch this movie to see how amazing it is.

I love must watch my number 1 with all hard guys: Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Silvester Stalone, Bruce Willes and many other ones - Zachart

Awesome movie
Both the animation and storyline are really good
Very Tim burtonish...

Paranorman is the best movie ever

36Dredd

Overshadowed by the many blockbusters of 2012, Dredd is stunning looking, violent and filled with quality action. Linear but effective plot, accompanied by good acting and a Dredd that is portrayed beautifully brutal by Karl Urban. Highly Recommended for fans of 2000AD or comic books in general and nevertheless for fans of action movies.

37Cloud Atlas

Epic is a word that is said way to much nowadays, but this is one of those times when you have to say it. Cloud Atlas is a complete underrated and misunderstood masterpiece that deserves to be noticed. LOVE this film! :D

This movie is sensational. It is one of the most visionary and ambitious films I have experienced. The acting was top notch and the visuals were just awesome. This is a movie that everyone should see.

Definitely the underrated film of the year. As much as I enjoyed The Avengers and the Dark Knight Rises, this film is definitely amazing. Even if the three-hour length seems daunting, it's still worth at least one watching.

Little bit hard to understand the connections but if you succeed you'll come up with a unforgettable experience

38Beasts of the Southern Wild

One of the best movies of all time with a haunting score to accompany it. Hard reality blending with surrealism and imagination seen through the eyes of a poor 6 year old after hurricane Katrina. I never even cried during a movie, well... - Bicyclerepairman

Inventive take on the tragedy of Katrina, with a deftness that guards from mere melodrama. Quvenzhané Wallis' performance is outstanding for any actress, let alone one only 6 years old. Challenging and difficult at times, but extremely worth it.

39Total Recall

Massively underrated! Total Recall 2012 is a terrifically entertaining sci-fi action movie. It is loaded with spectacular visuals and brilliantly made action sequences. The performances are great and it was a blast seeing Bryan Cranston as the villain, he was awesome. It had some really nice homages to the original without going overboard. One of the best this year.

It was very entertaining, saw it in the cinema. Great movie.

40The Master

P.T.A. just confirmed why HE IS the greatest director alive after Martin Scorsese. - sKeDx27

The best cinematography, directing, music and cast.. Oh boy that performance of Joaquin Phoenix! Simply the best movie of 2012.

Terrific performances from joaquin phoenix and philip seymour hoffmann...
Add that P.T. A flowing, surreal, atmospheric direction and we have a film that is close in quality to his 2008 masterpiece there will be blood...

I didn't watch this, I experienced this film
