My Favorite Ten Films of 2012

I saw a lot of movies in 2012, and reviewed most of them. Looking back at the films I saw in the theater over the past year, I've come up with my top ten. I am not claiming these are all Academy Award worthy masterpieces. I'm just saying that these are the ones I most enjoyed.

If you want to know what I thought of any of these films, you can search for my reviews at,, or

Two caveats. First, I Zero Dark Thirty has not been released in Nashville yet.  Second, I did not include Blue Like Jazz because I am too personally invested in it. If you haven't seen it, you should.

My Top Ten
  1. The Master
  2. Life of Pi
  3. Django Unchained
  4. Moonrise Kingdom
  5. Skyfall
  6. Looper
  7. The Grey
  8. The Dark Knight Rises
  9. Argo
  10. Brave
The award for worst film of the year goes to Sacha Baron Cohen's profoundly stupid "The Dictator."
