Top Ten Best Movies of 2012

The Top Ten

1 The Avengers

The Best Action Movie Ever!

This movie is absolutely amazing gold. The movie was breathtaking and gorgeous with lots of explosions, something The Dark Knight Rises wishes it would be. The 6 superheroes interacting was amusing and I loved that 1 moment when they stood together in the city, back to back, as a team. It is also one of the few movies to blend comedy and action. Take notes, 2009 version of Land of the Lost. The movie also made over 200 million in the U.S. box office weekend 1. OVER 200 MILLION! Loki wasn't as good as Bane, but oh boy, he had his goals on world domination. Truly evil, even if it's cliche. This film is better than Avatar, Titanic, and TDKR. The Avengers is so good that it's tie with Jaws for my favorite movie. Vote for The Avengers! - bubbles1111

Go Captain America! :D This is one of the greatest action movies ever! The only movies that are better are the Star Wars movies.

I like all Avengers movie part.

How Is this not Number 1! This series has been needing some recognition for a while, it is the next Harry Potter/Lord Of the Rings/Twilight saga!

Best movie of all time

4 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Hands down, the most epic movie of 2012, killer graphics, phenomenal storyline, and the sequencing was great, hats off to Peter Jackson for making The Hobbit into his own story, now I can't wait for part 2.

Iam a hardcore LOTR fan. It's just awesome man.
You gotta love it. Maynot be the better than LOTR : Return of the king. But that doesn't mean that it's the best of the year.

I just really got into this movie. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and for the whole 5 hours of the movie I wondered what was going to happen next. I was on the edge of my seat. I was hoping Bilbo Baggins wouldn't get eaten by a dragon. I thought Bilbo was a brave little guy. And I think his cute little feet that are so hairy are just adorable. All around this is the #1 movie of 2012. I don't know how you can put a movie this good at #3. It has a story line and I cannot wait for the next 5 Hobbit movies. I hope they are as riveting as this one. I don't believe this list is accurate in saying it's #3. It's like saying cats actually have 9 lives. They don't. They have one life and also it can't rain cats and dogs; I found that out the hard way.

It is super cool I like it for the rest of my life

5 Skyfall

Daniel Craig prooves just why he was cast as James Bond ever since Casino Royale. - jezza0

Fantastic bond movie... Much appreciated...

SKYFALL is definitely the best James Bond film

Favorite Bond movie - PeeledBanana

6 Django Unchained

It was between this, skyfall & the grey but had to go with django.. Another classic from tarantino.. Dark, hilarious, disturbing & violent without a doubt the best & most entertaining movie I saw in 2012

Hands down the best movie I've seen this year.

Probably the best movie of the year, even better than Lincoln, and easily the most entertaining - Wonderwall

Looking at this list makes me want to puke. Why are there so many super hero movies on here? Have people really become this dumb?

7 Ted

I loved it just a feel good movie about growing up

I pissed myself laughing at this, how is it not number one

Oh come on!, you can watch it for like 100 times and seriously never get bored
It at least deserves a top 10 spot... Ted rocks

Ted 2 was so boring! - Victoryboy

8 The Amazing Spider-Man

Spider man is my all time favorite super hero and this movie was AMAZING!

Emma stone is AWESOME

Brilliant acting from Andrew Garfield- surpassed all my expectations. He perfected the role and absolutely NAILED Peter Parker's character. The film had the perfect balance of action, drama and romance. Also, the chemistry between Peter and Gwen is superb, it had me spill a few tears at the end... Very excited for the sequel and happy that Spider-man is back on the big screen- such a classic hero!

Underrated

9 Wreck It Ralph

As always Disney had the best plots in every movie they have produced. Wrek-it ralph is another type of love story that not only little girls can enjoy, but the whole family. It's humor, graphics and screenplay are one of the factors that makes this movie part of the top 10 list.

Only reason I watch animated movies is because, while watching them, I can take a break from the real world.

It is my favorite movie! I love the way the cast is like and the storyline is just amazing. I love Felix he's really cute. Ralph shows that even tough guys have feeling too how he cried during Felix's and Calhoun's wedding (sorry for the spoilers). I loved the sibling bond between Ralph and Vanellope just like a little sister and a big brother.

Some amazing stuffs - growlbunny

10 Life of Pi

Life changing experience, watching this movie...

This movie should be on top

Why are all the crappy superhero movies in the top 10? The best movies of the year should be judged by their storyline, message, entertainment value, and effect it has on you. Life of pi is a spectacular movie with all of these attributes, I was speechless at the end of it. The only reason avengers and spiderman and the dark night are on here is because people only care about action and explosions when it comes to a movie, which I find stupid. What I hate most of all though is that Ted is on here. It's a crappy movie about sex and ruining your childhood. Get these movies off of here! Get movies like life of pi, Lincoln, silver linings, looper and beasts of the southern wild up here!

You can't really explain it its just such a good movie

The Contenders

11 Lincoln

Great movie! Good direction and even better acting!
Deserves to be at number 1

It is a great movie to watch! Acting of daniel day lewis was simply awesome. Indeed they highlighted up one of the world's greatest leader well.

With an absolutely thrilling performance by Day-Lewis and spectacular direction from Spielberg, this film not only exceeds expectations, but it delivers an inspiring story that will please all. - BassettCritic

Duh

12 21 Jump Street

Best comedy action movie ever

Pure comedy gold, sometimes vulgar, but it's directed towards teens and college kids so you have to take that into account, Jonah hill, Channing tatum, ice cube are salubrious!

A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.

Great,if you've liked this,you should watch "Super Bad"

13 Silver Linings Playbook

I can"t believe It's 34! It's an amazing movie!

Robert De Niro! Bradley Cooper! JENNIFER LAWRENCE! THIS MOVIE IS SO AMAZING IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1. It's a movie about life, real thing not stupid visual effects mixed with super hero and in 3D. I wanna watch real movies not video games

Amazing! This movie is amazing and I love it... Jennifer Lawrence and Bradly Cooper look awesome in this movie...

Well now it's 13

14 Argo

This can not be an accurate list if this is ranked so far down. Definitely the best movie of 2012 without a doubt. Once again Ben Affleck shows that he is one the best directors out there, This movies deserves to win an Oscar, I recommend watching this movie as it will not let you down.

Absolutely loved this movie. Top-notch acting, great black comedy, tense moments and a gripping, occasionally disturbing and shocking story make this an amazing film. I have no idea how it's only 61 when movies of lower quality are far higher up.

This can't be on best movies it should be on worst movies of 2012 because its not even a true story it's all made up they didn't even tell it right and how it won an academy award ill never ever know.

So the best picture winner is not even on top 10...this is an amazing movie...and quite underrated actually...great acting,nail biting scenes and an awesome story.

15 Looper

How is this not at least number 3!?!?! Underrated I would say.

Fantastic movie; action packed, great story line, and sorta realistic! I thought it was great from beginning to end, definitely deserves a top 5 spot. WAY better than Django.

JFK cements himself as a legitimate Hollywood leading actor in this movie. Should be top five for sure.

Should be under top ten! At least!

16 Les Miserables

Come on, guys! This was the best movie of the year, and is probably going to win Best Picture. Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen... How is this not even on the list yet!

Les Miz could resurrect the musical genre. The scenery was gorgeous, the acting compelling, the music heart-wrenching, and my 12-year old daughter bawled her eyes out. You can't beat that. Get this masterpiece into the top 10--justice cries out for Les Miz!

How is this not even on the top 10?! It's so beautiful and the singing and acting was fantastic. The plot line is great too, I was weeping the whole time. It's a love story, an action, and morbid story where everyone dies all in one!

So much singing it nearly killed me!

17 Men In Black 3

Can't believe it is 33

Lincoln's boring, Men in Black 3 is an enjoyable romp.

Jermaine Clement is double funny as the young and old Brois the Animal.P. S; It's just Boris.

Good film! - Victoryboy

18 Pitch Perfect

Ha ha, probably some of you reading this will think, LAME! Fill-in-the-blank is way better than Pitch Perfect! But I'm not a main stream kinda girl, and this movie is still my number one ever. LOVED the music, HILARIOUS characters, great acting, so funny. Aca-awkward! Watch this if ya haven't seen it, y'all. (the y'all was ironic). But seriously, everyone whos seen it loves it. Ya can't go wrong. Haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate. I don't wanna beg, but WHATEVER THE FAN NAME IS FOR people WHO LIKE THIS MOVIE, VOTE!
And while you're at it, listen to
-Behind These Hazel Eyes, Kelly Clarkson
-When You're Gone, Avril Lavigne.
And remember that most of the time, the under appriciated songs on an album are better than the mainstream. But if ya like to swim mainstream that's cool too. Sorry for the irrelevance. Don't hate. Vote. That's all I gotta say

Aca-amazing movie! Great cast, particularly my favorite Actor, Skylar Astin, who also has the most amazing male singing voice I have ever heard! He added a specific charm to the movie with his unmatched likability and sincerity ending up with the best personality of any movie character ever! And Rebel Wilson, my second favorite actor, was undeniably hysterical! The jokes were hilarious and the music was amazing! The acting and singing are perfect! Everything about this movie is perfect! It's my favorite movie of all time and that's coming from someone who almost exclusively watches horror movies! It should be #1!

Pitch perfect the best movie ever! If you have never seen that movie you are crazy. This movie is the most fun-filled move ever. If you want a funny movie watch pitch perfect

This is the funniest movie ever! I love it!

19 Zero Dark Thirty

Zero Dark Thirty is a brilliantly crafted film. The entire cast are just perfect in their roles and the soundtrack is beautifully dark and eerie. Although we know how it ends, it keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. And the last 30 minutes of the film is one of the most intense and incredibly well-made sequence in a long time.

Now how ridiculous is this? 0 dark 30 at 70? This is an epic movie...

Should be much higher in the list, completely underrated! - drummer

24 is way too low for this brilliant, and underrated film. - williamrozario

20 The Cabin in the Woods

GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE! This movie is very different and epic compared to the original scary movies. You wont regret watching this movie! I SWEAR! - BlackDeathCode

The only reason to not vote for this is that you have not seen it. In which case, go and see it. Now.

Will mislead and surprise everyone. Great film if you want to enjoy yourself for a few hours.

Hilarious yet horrifying, definitely deserves a higher spot. The plot is very original and the twists are great. The end was weird though, I have no idea who thought up of that.
