2012 is over and I’ve finally caught up enough to make my ‘best of’ picks. There are some movies I regret missing but overall, I saw more than 30 movies released in 2012.
Before I mention my top 5, I wanted to acknowledge some awesome movies that just missed the cut.

THE TOP 5 MOVIES OF 2012
Skyfall narrowly edged out Django Unchained purely because of the nostalgia it brought back to the Bond franchise. Casino Royale is one of my favorite movies period but Skyfall felt like a better reboot. Classic James Bond movie.
I was blown away by Looper’s style and originality.
3. ZERO DARK THIRTY
A smart and fascinating look behind the scenes of one of the most important events in recent memory.
2. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
The end of an era. Though the film didn’t rise above The Dark Knight, it still wrapped up a legendary film series I’ll cherish forever.
1. THE AVENGERS
I saw The Avengers 3 times in 7 days. Two of those were matinee viewings before work… By myself. I absolutely adored The Avengers. It was, by far, the most fun I had in theaters in 2012.
Bring on 2013!
