Temporal Top Ten – 2012


2012

top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 142
Number of movies reviewed – 126 (including 9 Encore Reviews)

 

2012 was a great year for movies.

My #1 this year was IMHO one of the best made musical adaptations to the screen. I really could feel the character’s plights and the production and music was done unbelievably.

#2 is the finale of an amazing series that was just a tad off from being even better than its predecessor but nevertheless was a great ending to the epic tale.

#3, #4 and #5 are extraordinary documentaries that really catch you emotionally and were done extremely well.

#6 was the ultimate Oscar champ that year and even though it’s a great Hollywood making fun of itself movie which was loved by all of the insiders, it just isn’t perfect.

#7 is a return to original sci-fi that really took us all for a loop because it was so great.

#8 is a return to form for Disney animation with great characters, storyline and music.

#9 is a true to life story about a family searching for each other after tragedy strikes.

#10 is the first weigh station of a joint superhero adventure after the initial set of stand alone films. I liked it, but it still wasn’t as good as some of the stand alones.

UPDATE 7 Nov 2017 – I have added a new film as my #2 pick, thus bumping all the rest down one notch, my previous #10 is now an honorable mention

  1. Oh, what a great year! Totally agree on the beginning and end of your list, though I haven’t seen the middle. Just not much exposure to documentaries. Life of Pi, Hitchcock, and Men in Black 3 were excellent too. I always look forward to these Temporal Tens.
