I have not seen every movie released this year so I wont be able to include some that I still really want to see so if there are any missing that you think should have been here then that is probably why, either that or I just didnt like it enough to be added. Also I am cheating a bit as I couldnt whittle these down enough so its a top 15.
15. Magic Mike
The most surpising movie this year.
I think this film was advertised totally wrong and maybe alot of people didnt see this becasue they thought it was just a silly male stripper film made just for women to drool at. Dont get me wrong the guys are really hot! But this is not just about stripping, it is actually more about people trying to find themselves and its more a drama about friendship and relationships. This is the first entry in the list with Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, who have both played some brilliant roles this year. Channing Tatum was not only in Magic Mike, but also one of the best comedies this year 21 Jump Street and one of the best action movies this year Haywire. Matthew McConaughey went crazy this year, for the better. He stopped doing the cheesy rom-coms and took on some more interesting and some could say, risky roles in Magic Mike and Killer Joe (later on in this list)
14. The five year engagement
My favourite romantic comedy movie this year
13. The avengers
I dont really need to say much about the avengers, almost everyone who will read this would have watched it. It may be surprising to some that it is not higher up, but I just thought even though it is a brilliant action/comic book movie and def the best ever there were other movies this year that I cared more about. I still this its awesome though!!!
My favourite animated movie this year
7. Killer Joe
6. Cabin in the woods
5. Saftey not guarenteed
4. The Grey
3. Beasts of the Southern wild
1. The Dark Knight Rises
It was a close call between Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises, they were both amazing in their own ways. I am looking forward to 2013 with a whole load of new movies to look forward to.
