I personally only liked 3 of the movies in your list, and including the ones in the list of movies you haven't seen yet.

I think there's been better years for movies, especially since nothing "wowed" me this year.

Cabin in the Woods??? REEEEEALLY?

Still really looking forward to Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty, but my fave so far this year is Argo

Don't bother with the theatre much, and not even DL-ing much since I got Netflix.

Really want to see a lot of these movies (eventually), so here are my top 10 "want to see":

1. Beasts of the Southern Wild

2. Skyfall

3. Life of Pi

4. Argo

5. Looper

6. Lincoln

7. Zero Dark Thirty

8. The Master

9. Cloud Atlas

10. Bernie

As for what I have seen, most of it was underwhelming. Had high hopes for Dark Knight Rises, and Moonrise Kingdom, (I'm a big fan of both directors), but found them disappointing.

My wife and I spoke about this a few days ago, this year seems to be a blur. Most critically acclaimed films (ie: Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, The Master) we won't bother seeing in theatres as it costs too much and takes up too much time. We did see Looper, Hobbit, TDKR, Avengers, Skyfall, and Breaking Dawn (thanks wife) in theatres, all the rest we will just wait.

That said, out of all the new films I saw, my top 2 would have to be Looper and The Hobbit.

You say the Avengers is overrated.... but is in your top 10 films.

You need to see more movies.... as it seems like you just listed all the artsy films you saw, and then the ones you liked because you like blockbusters.

yeah my comment was dumb. Looper was like a cross between sci fi and film noir, neither genre i'm particularly fond of except in specific, almost random, cases. so i guess the movie just doesn't appeal to me

it certainly was unique, though
