Much to my surprise, 2012 was a pretty great year for films. Don’t get me wrong, there were some terrible films as well, but there are always terrible films. What surprised me is just how many films I truly enjoyed. And the best part was just how wildly eclectic those films were. The great films are by no means delegated to the drama categories at all. We had a few real horror gems, some drama, and a couple incredibly memorable action films as well. While I didn’t laugh enough at 2012′s batch of movies, I can say that these five films seemed to rise miles above all the others that came out this year. Also, please note, I have incredibly f*cked up tastes, so do not expect this list to look like any other ‘best of’ lists you may be seeing around the web right now. But trust me, if you have not seen these films, you need to.
