5. The Avengers: I like comic book movies and thought the build up to this movie with the others was great and definitely wasn't disappointed.
4. The Amazing Spider-Man: Again, I like comic book movies, and Spider-Man was always one of my favorite heroes. This was so much better than the three with Tobey Maguire.
3. Django Unchained: Good thing I went to see this the other day, because otherwise it would have missed my list. This movie was awesome. Classic Tarantino.
2. Lincoln: Tough choice to put this one at number two, as I thought maybe number one. It is definitely one of the better movies I have seen in a long time.
1. The Dark Knight Rises: As of right now, the Dark Knight Trilogy is probably my favorite set of movies and this is my favorite of the three. Hard to not put this as my number 1.
I saw the new Batman and that was about it. But that was damn good. Really great kind of want to pick it up on blu ray.
Not sure if they still have the deal, but I pre-ordered the whole trilogy from bluray.com for 30 bucks
They have it for $35 I'm really tempted.
I think that's a good deal, considering a lot of new release blu-rays that are good movies are 25-30 bucks sometimes
You twisted my arm.
Enjoy, if it is the same one that I got, I believe it comes with 5 discs and a little book that is an excerpt of the book about the making of that trilogy
2. Django Unchained
3. Silver Linings Playbook
5. The Master
Saw pretty much every movie that had any chance of being good this year except for Zero Dark Thirty which technically came out in December but wont wide release till January 11. I think it could bust into my top 5 easily. Lot of great movies this year, one of the best years for film in the 21st century.

Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
Don't recall hearing anything about your # 3 or #5. I have not watched Argo yet, but would very much like to do so
I am pretty excited to see Zero Dark Thirty
3 was really good starring Jessica Lawrence (Hunger Games) and Bradley Cooper. It's a different film from anything I've really seen and it has a lot to do with the Philly Eagles, pretty funny too. Robert De Nero co-stars and both he and lawrence are going to be up for Academy Award best actor awards in their categories. The Master is by my favorite director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood and Boogie Nights). very great film and some good performances in it as well from Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymore Hoffman. Argo is great and I can watch it multiple times without being bored which is very hard for me.
Appreciate the info, I'll have to check them out
The Three Stooges. Great action and really cool story line.
IIRC, I didn't watch a single movie that was released in 2012. Although I have The Dark Knight Rises in my netflix queue and will be watching it soon.
The will is not here, the will is at my office next to the hot plate with the frayed wires.
5. Pitch Perfect - Thought I'd throw 1 comedy in here, kind of a chick flick but it was hilarious.
4. Skyfall - Best Bond since Tomorrow Never Dies
3. The Avengers
2. Lincoln - Loved it
1. The Dark Knight Rises
I'm guessing had I seen Argo it probably would have made my list. I really want to see it, as well as Flight and Django.
FSU fan here, my top five for 2012 are:
1-End of Watch. GREAT movie that's likely under appreciated. And being LE, the title takes on a personal meaning.
2-Dark Knight Rises. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!
3-Les Miserables. Not a musical guy, but surprisingly enjoyed the crap out of this movie.
4-Hunger Games. Violence. Nuff said.
5-Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I still shudder with 1 scene in particular.
Skyfall belongs as 2b. What the Bond franchise needed since they went off the deep end in the late 90's.

That's another one I really want to see and heard was really good
Dude, it's a gritty movie. Holds nothing back in regards to the cartels.
1.) Dark Knight Rises
2.) End of Watch
3.) Moonrise Kingdom
4.) Life of Pi
Moonrise was great! Life of Pi was very good as well!
Of movies listed on here that I haven't seen that I really want to see...
End of Watch, Silver LInings Playbook, Argo, Django, and The Master.
Other 2012 movies I want to see but haven't: Flight, Trouble with the Curve (love baseball movies, Amy Adams, and Clint Eastwood)
My honorable mention: Hunger Games, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
