Top Ten Best Movies of 2012

The Top Ten

1 The Avengers The Avengers Product Image

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!

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 simply loved the Avengers and cannot get enough of watching it, after seventeen times (and counting). Yes there were inconsistencies and some flops, but the story was superbly told. For me, the show was stolen by Bruce Banner, who was so incredibly loveable and cute without even saying much and I cannot even cope with how good Robert Downey Jr was in this one. Also, special props go to Jeremy Renner who did a sensationally manly and sexy Hawkeye. All over the internet people say Hawkeye is the crappiest superhero (because he has no superpower and all) but Jeremy totally did a great job with the part.

2 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises Product Image

BEST! Only word I know for this epic movie

This is the best movie of 2012 anyone who doesn't like it likes Justin Bieber movies

It would of been better if the that guy didn't murder all those people in the movie theater

Christopher nolan is god in making movies... This is his best one...

Those were the good old days. Missing this trilogy. The movies were so quotable.

3 The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image

The movie was amazing and was well played my the actors

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

I've recently watched The Hunger Games and to be honest, I was amazed! The movie was so intense, every second of it. The characters were very well played and I couldn't believe why I didn't watch it earlier. I can't believe it, but it was unbelievable. I quickly fell in love with the characters. It was just wow.

I'm in the mood where all I think of is The Hunger Games, and sometimes I feel sad about fiction and I feel like I'm in The Hunger Games. My life revolves around it right now haha.

Oh ya, and Cato's cool.

4 Django Unchained Django Unchained Product Image

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.

This movie made me a Tarantino fan.This movie had everything. The style, violence , humor, dialogues, action - everything was perfect. The story and soundtrack was amazing. I never get bored no matter how many times I watch. This should be ahead of that overrated boring Avenger movie.

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

5 Wreck It Ralph Wreck It Ralph Product Image

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.

I liked this movie. The first time I watched it was with my friend at the movie theatre, and the movie was great. I am getting older (as in I'm almost a teenager) so it is kind of hard to find an animated movie, that isn't kidiesh ( not sure that's a word) I liked this movie because it doesn't deal with icky kissy and romantic stuff, (except with Felix) like most movies have now. Instead, this movie deals with a friendship, that went a long way, stuff that matters... Instead teens my age watch crappy movies, and end up getting pregnant at 13... This country is going down hill, society wise, economy, and lots more!

6 Ted Ted Product Image

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

I found the use of a humble teddy bear image to drink gamble use profanity hoggle over women disgusting this movie is the worst movie I had ever saw id prefer to watch american dad cause it is a cartoon and the alien roger does everything this stupid teddy does the fact remains is this movie for kids or retarded adults

7 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Product Image

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.

One of the best fantasy movies. Bilbo, Gollum and Smaug were easily the best characters of the trilogy. Although not as good as Lord of the Rings, I would still give the Hobbit trilogy a 8/10.

Hobbit movies are so underrated. It is not perfect like LOTR but the movie s were still fun to watch. Bilbo, Gollum and Smaug were easily the best part of this trilogy. Also I feel Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins alone was better than any of the hobbits in LOTR. Hobbit Trilogy is not as good as LOTR but these movies are still better than most of the blockbusters that we see today.

8 Skyfall Skyfall Product Image

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

Fantastic bond movie... Much appreciated...

SKYFALL is definitely the best James Bond film

Hands down the best movie of 2012. This should be much higher up on the list.

9 Life of Pi Life of Pi Product Image

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!

Its sad to see a superhero movie come out on top year after year, Life of Pi was an creative journey and it left me more inclined to act positively, in fact way more than any superhero movie ever would. This movie inspired me and really moved me. Another thing, I don't see how Argo didn't make it onto the top 10 list, I would rather watch an interesting and factual movie based on logical events as apposed to watching a illogical movie based off of its special effects and aesthetics. Generally I would rather watch a movie that left me feeling light and inspired instead of watching a movie such as superman that leaves me vaguely depressed and mildy amused.

10 The Amazing Spider-Man The Amazing Spider-Man Product Image

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!

I ♥ EMMA STONE

The Contenders

11 Lincoln Lincoln Product Image

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.

The fact that "Ted" and "The Not-So-Amazing Spiderman" are above this cinematic masterpiece is a travesty. The dialogue was perfect, the acting was on point, and the cinematograph was interesting. This is one for the books.

12 21 Jump Street 21 Jump Street Product Image

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.

Surprisingly funny. I loved the fact that Channing and Jonah worked so well together. It wasn't too much and made for a good re-do.

13 Men In Black 3 Men In Black 3 Product Image

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.

Great final movie in the series, the ending is so touching!

14 Argo Argo Product Image

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.

Half of the other movies before it are total trash, Avengers! I think this is a great film and should have gotten better because of the PLOT! Cough cough Avengers, Ted, Amazing sidy guy!

15 Les Miserables Les Miserables Product Image

this should be so much higher
come on guys 16? rlly? I mean some of the singing and acting is kinda cheesy but this movie has hugh jackman, anne hathaway, and hekena bnham carter in it for christ sake

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!

16 Brave Brave Product Image

I think that Brave is a really good film and I think it's the best on this list.

Loved dis movie! It got a nomination in the oscar.. Deserves to win...

I love brave it is totally the best

Don't you feel Brave is the best mother daughter bonding film portrayed beautifully? It was touching on so many levels... Please watch.

17 Zero Dark Thirty Zero Dark Thirty Product Image

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!

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

18 Hotel Transylvania Hotel Transylvania Product Image

Very Funny! Worth watching!

It very best. Please vote this!

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.

Really? This is ranked behind stupid Ice Age!

19 The Cabin in the Woods The Cabin in the Woods Product Image

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!

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.

20 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days Product Image

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 movie is HILARIOUS. The expressions of the actors never get old. It was so good, I saw it 3 times while it was still in the theaters! This movie is worth gold!

21 Pitch Perfect Pitch Perfect Product Image

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

I really like Becca. She's such a talented girl. In the movie, I really enjoy listening to them singing altogether. One of my most unforgettable scene in this movie is when Becca used the cup as an instrument, it's really awesome.

22 Looper Looper Product Image

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!

23 Moonrise Kingdom Moonrise Kingdom Product Image

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.

Although a much smaller, more intimate film then say, Lincoln or Argo, of all the films I saw this year, this one was the most inventive, original and well executed I saw. Pretty close to a perfect film if not a particularly ambitious one.

24 Silver Linings Playbook Silver Linings Playbook Product Image

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...

I have watched this movie at least 20 times. I love it and could watch it even more! An amazing love story, it is also a dead-on portrayal of the trials and tribulations families experience when dealing with bipolar disorder.

25 Chronicle Chronicle Product Image

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.

It's great because when you really sit down and analyze it, it's more than just your typical sci-fi action movie, it's a dark tale of this kid (Andrew) a normal high schooler who has a life totally filled with grim and despair, and when he gets powers he uses them to try and better his own life, but life keeps throwing so much crap his way, from getting Steve killed to having his mother die and then he finally decides that he's had enough. It's really a movie about how far someone can be pushed before they reach their breaking point.

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.
