    Don't forget "Borat Returns".

    To be followed next year by "Borat Rises."

    And not to be confused with "Borat: The Musical" now showing on Broadway.

      On a serious note, being a big Joss Whedon fan since "Buffy" and "Firefly", I lean toward "The Avengers", surely the best superhero movie made so far.

      That said, I am one of those sacrilegious few who haven't seen "Skyfall" yet. Which, BTW, pains me greatly.

        I liked Skyfall and Argo. Most of the rest on the lists I either didn't care for wouldn't consider paying to see. Les Miz? Really?
        Best film that no one saw: Robot and Frank

          My favourite film of the year by far is 'Amour'.

          Knowing how closely Marlow and my tastes match I'll have to assume it just missed his Top 10.

            Ha! But you have to proud of me that The Intouchables made my list, no? Nothing blowed up real good in it!

              Haven't seen 0 dark thirty or Life of Pi so I'm flying blind.

              1. Lincoln.
              2. Argo.
              3. Les Miz.
              4. The Hobbit.
              For me it's been a pitiable year in movies. Then I haven't seen any foreign movies yet since my local Art movie theater went belly up. C'mon Netflix!

                If I didn't love my wife SOOOOOOO much, I woulda walked in the first 30 minutes. As it was, even my wife ended up not liking it - said the Liam Neeson (non-musical) one was much better.

                    My two favorite movies of the year were quirky and different: Moonrise Kingdom and Bernie.

                        Baron Cohen is the one thing in Les Miz I hated.

                          I liked Avengers, Argo, Life of Pi, and The Hobbit.

                          Also, enjoyed seeing 3-D re-issues of Wall-ie and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

                          I see quite a few animated films with my two sons but thought it a weak year in that department - although Rise of the Guardians and Hotel Transylvania had their moments.

                            01 The Avengers
                            02 Skyfall

                            06 The Hunter (worldwide release in 2012 but a 2011 Aussie movie)
                            07 Cloud Atlas (probably need to see it again to determine exactly what I think...)
                            08 The Amazing Spider-Man
                            09 The Sapphires
                            10 A Royal Affair

                              Incredibly enjoyable but cringy, corny and borderline racist.

                              Saw 'The Life of Pi' last night and loved it.

                              Hard to compare to 'Amour' as they are so totally different but they are battling for my top spot.
