List your favorite films of 2012...Yes I said 2012

As I said in the 11' thread, I think it would be fun if we listed what we believe will be our 'Top 10' films of 2012.

I'm not talking about your most anticipated films, rather a list in order of your Top 10 films as you would list them after you seen them. I'm talking a 'Best Of' before they even come out.

At the end of 2012 we can look back fondly on our fantastic awareness or angrily shake our fist at our 2011 former selves.

I can suggest going to IMDB to compile your list. They have a list of films coming out in 2012.

Of course things will be missed, but feel free to put any film that is DUE out in 2012. You never know what will actually end up coming out in 2012 other than the 'big' films but the only rule is.. Don't add a title after you seen it. This is a blind list.

Here is mine, and man this is hard. I had about 20 I could have had in my top 10, but here it is.

1. Moonrise Kingdom
2. Gambit
3. Django Unchained
4. Amour
5. Rust and Bone
6. On the Road
7. Creed of Violence
8. Cosmopolis
9. Dark Knight Rises
10. The Hobbit

I'm aware this idea might be completely retarded but I think it will be an interesting experiment.

Dark Knight Rises - Definitely #1. I'm excited to see if there's a resolution.

The Amazing Spider-Man - Trailer looks interesting, although it does give it more of a Twilight vibe than I would've liked.

Django Unchained - Tarantino!

The Expendables 2 - First one kicked some ass, expecting a lot more of the same.

The Avengers - Could be awesome, or a bloated mess.

Skyfall - Bond. James Bond. Also Javier Bardem, the sexiest man on Earth, I'm not ashamed to say.

American Reunion - Liked the first three, skipped the others.

Rock of Ages - My kind of music!

World War Z - Can't wait to see how they've filmed this.

^ Nice call.

Didn't know Amour was slated for 2012. Nice rest of your list as well. I will be updating mine to include Amour.

Re: List your favorite films of 2012...Yes I said 2012

These are the only films that I can say with a high degree of certainty will be among my favorites for 2012 (listed in alphabetical order):

The Dark Knight Rises
Django Unchained
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (aka "The Hobbit, Part 1")
Prometheus

As for anything else, I'll need to see the film first before deciding.

haha didn't read the OP did you?

That's the point. Guessing what will be your top films of 2012 WITHOUT Seeing them, THEN after you see them showing your true Top 10.

So you've been here since 1999 and you have yet to understand what a threadcrap is?

Seriously dude, you're the one who seems sad. Everyone else posting is just playing along but I guess they are all sad because of this? You sound like your just instigating.

I did read it but my point was, although there are more films that I anticipate, I could only come up with 4 films due in 2012 that I believe now will be in my Top 10 for the year. As for what will be ultimately the next 6 films on my list, I have no idea what to put down because there's no other film that I believe ahead of time will be in my Top 10 for the year.

The Hunger Games
Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0
Children Who Chase Voices from Deep Below
A Dangerous Method
The Dark Knight Rises

Yes, some of these (Voices & Method) have been released. But not where I live.
