2012 Movie Rankings

Here is my ranking of movies released in 2012. You can find reviews by clicking on the film’s title. You can also argue with me at length in the comments section below, as long as you keep it civil.

By its nature, this list will change significantly over the course of 2012, and will undergo a final review process at the very beginning of 2013 to finalize the rankings.

It’s also important to note that these are ranked in the order that I enjoyed them. I recognize and accept that some of the movies that are not in the Top Ten are technically better films than some that are in the Top Ten. But I didn’t ENJOY my experience with them as much.

Cool?
