The Best and Worst Films of 2012

This was the year were all fan-boys dreams came true. First "The Avengers" finally came to life and without a hiccup, then the best comic book trilogy to date in "The Dark Knight Trilogy" came to a beautiful close and now comic book films have a definite foothold on the world wide market and with no end in sight. Though, it would be a gross exaggeration to say that superhero films were the only films to capture our love and imagination this year.

There was also Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, that was not only a great look at a forgotten leader, but a reminder of how we have to fight for whats right no matter the cost. Michael Haneke's much talked about "Amour" was a stern look on the issues that may arise with old age and loved ones. Continuing on, there are many more films in drama, comedy and horror that are on this list and right for the picking. All suitable for a great time with a friend, family or even by yourself with a good packet of chips. Enjoy!

P.S. As always this a ever-evolving list. I haven't seen all the films of 2012 and there are many more I still wish to see. So even if some are not on the list, that doesn't mean they wont be later or that they don't deserve to be.
