Top Ten Best Movies of 2012


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Ice Age: Continental Drift

Because I like snow..! I like ice..! I like the story, make me happy..!

I hate Ice age but I do think this is the least worst part of the saga. I loved 3, I'm interested in part 5, and this is the second best

Why did they make another one. It is a scheme to get a quick buck and it don't work.

Three cheers for ice age - gaudi121

42 Total 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.

44 Jack Reacher

Jack Reacher is a hardcore action movie. We need a quality action movie in the top 10 and I seriously think jack reacher deserves a place due to the exceptional performance by Tom Cruise. If you love action, Jack Reacher deserves to be in top 10. The film have a beautifully written screenplay.

A thrilling and suspenseful action movie, with great acting by Cruise and the rest of the cast. Interesting mystery plot as well. Jack Reacher also contains one of the greatest car chases in recent memory. Really hoping that they make a sequel.

Jack reacher is one of my favorite movies. Very polished actions and great words

This movie was alright. I think it is a little underrated though.

45 Man on a Ledge

Captivating! For fans of CSI and other crime shows. The main plot is shadowed throughout the movie by the MAN ON A LEDGE.

46 The Impossible

77th? What has gone wrong here? 2012 has seen some great movies (the top ten are all great) but it has also seen some shockers and it is absolutely ridiculous that a good 30 of these are ahead of the Impossible. This was by far the most emotional film of the year with a good deal of excitement thrown in. It makes you smile, cry, laugh, wince and perch on the edge of your seat and in my opinion that is what constitutes a great movie. I came out of the cinema with a new found respect for everything I have - especially loved ones. The fact that it is a true story makes it even more incredible.

I think this film is a film you would not get bored of and the film is based on a true story the film is about the family goes on holiday to thailand and they is a tsunami their and half of the family gets swept away to a different part of it and the woman goes with her oldest son and the two little sons are with their father and the husband goes and looks for his wife because she is in such a state because she has so many injuries and the man has to leave the kids with someone while he looks for them and then he finds them in the hospital and then they get a flight home when the woman has a operation but I think this film should be the number one film even though this film is upsetting!

The Impossible is an awesome movie with a giant tsunami and it's good they didn't die.

Jesus Christ this movie was painful to watch. So many tears.

48 Flight

Denzel was phenonminal in this movie!

A worthwatch movie... Denzels performance deserves applause...

49 Sinister

A well-executed and effective horror film, with a great soundtrack and an awesome Ethan Hawke, it makes Sinister one of the better horror films that has been released in a while.

50 Haywire

What a delightful surprise! I loved it. Haywire is an extremely well-made film with exquisite choreography. It has a really old school feel to it. With a stellar cast, brilliant direction, stylish cinematography and a great soundtrack, Haywire is surely one of the best films released in 2012.

51 Here Comes the Boom

My art teacher's name is Todd Voss, and guess what, the main actor's name is the EXACT same. The movie also had a good story, stand up for what you love and live for.

Great Family/teen film. Funny jokes and plot line. I loved the Neil Diamond song. Inspiring.

52 Inception

Inception is not a movie of 2012 - zxm

53 The Bourne Legacy

Absolutely loved The Bourne Legacy. A great and terrifically entertaining movie with top notch action sequences and an impressive and talented cast. Extremely well-filmed and shot in really cool and beautiful locations. Enjoyed the parallels between the previous Bourne film, thought it worked really well. All in all The Bourne Legacy is a great movie filled with adrenaline and smarts.

Very good! A Must watch film, I watched all three in the series they were preety good, the other three were better but jeremy now changes everything. Watch the rest of the films in the series before watching this one

Nice movie and I loved to watched it all over again and again. There are some scenes that were funny!

54 The Watch
55 The Dictator

The best movie of 2012 without a doubt, it's so funny that it gave me a six pack from laughing so much.

Full of satires... And funny like hell.
There are a lot of moments when you can literally blow off your mind laughing

Amazingly hilarious! Better than Ted!

58 The Woman in Black

Gripping story, jaw dropping scenes, be ready to stay awake for many nights after watching this :)), should be in the top ten at least.

59 End of Watch

Seen it twice and it was just as gripping the second time. Great action sequences and a powerful sense of camaraderie between the lead characters

Most underrated movie of the year. Easily my favorite. - Thebearjew49

60 Premium Rush

Terrifically entertaining with high-octane chase scenes and action. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon in a film together is surely a recipe for a fun and enjoyable time. Overall it's a great and entertaining film from start to finish.
