This past year in cinema was a significant step up compared to recent years. So many great films in 2012, but only ten spots. Let me preface for you, the reader, before you start scrolling down on my movie rankings: I was not able to get out and watch every acclaimed film in 2012, but for the most part I liked what I did see.
Skyfall is to Craig what Goldfinger was for Connery: his best outing as 007 yet, hands down. To those of you who know your James Bond films, that is probably the highest praise you can give a Bond film.
The big idea was to feature some of the more highly-anticipated movies from the 2012 film slate -- of which there are many -- however, I'll admit: a couple clunkers still managed to sneak their way in. But overall, I feel like there is a little something for everybody on this list.
