So after seeing a grand total of 131 movies in cinemas, it’s that time where I recount all the first time viewings I experienced this year. Films that were not released in 2012 but in any year previous that I had yet to see. It includes some classics, some odd choices and some titles you may not have known even existed. It’s ok, neither did I.

So without further adieu, check them out after the jump.

2012 has been an amazing year for films. It was almost impossible to nail down a top 20 list, and the list of films that just missed out went really deep. But with the good, comes the bad, and 2012 has been no exception – it has been a particularly bad year for comedies and lame action flicks. After the jump, check out our picks for the worst 10 films of 2012.

2012

Here are my [Chris Elena’s] picks for the best films of 2012. Instead of two lists, separating best cinema releases of the year and upcoming releases/festival flicks, I’ve decided to make it just as the one definitive list. It will include some films only shown in film festivals of this year but were still made accessible to audiences this year. The only condition I stick with is all the films included on the list HAD to be released after the first week in January to the end of December in 2012, so you’ll notice some films that were released in the U.S or other countries last year but we only got them this year.

It will merely be a list of the 20 best films I saw this year rather than writing a paragraph for each (much like Sam’s wonderful list). The reason for this being, the movies I truly loved, I reviewed and the ones I didn’t review are the few that should be seen without any prior explanation or description to it so your own opinion can be formed. Films like Django Unchained, This is 40 and other January picks will be saved for next year’s lists, but of course i’ll be reviewing them as soon as I can! It’s annoying more than anything to have to wait for releases that other countries get quite early so I only list and rate those that everyone had a chance to see this year.

Oh and as one known as ‘The Contrarian’ to popular opinions and such, I hope this list provides a surprise or two when you get a chance to glance at it. Whether that surprise is a nice one…or not.

So, without further adieu, my picks are after the jump.
