Quentin Tarantino delivers one fantastic ride, with great stylized action, a gratifying revenge plot, and memorable, wonderful performances.

9.9/10

Subversive in every way shape and form, wickedly and uncomfortably funny, and endlessly creative, this is a fantastic deconstruction of horror films, and ironically one of the greatest horror films of all time.

9.9/10

People who added this item 569 Average listal rating (389 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 6.7
Killer Joe (2012)
Nihilistic, unrelentingly savage, and shocking, this film takes a basic plot and twists it on its head so far, that this film is anything but predictable. Beautifully shot, and fantastic performances all around, this is a must see for those who can stomach it.

9.8/10

People who added this item 962 Average listal rating (649 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.4
An intelligent, engrossing and absolutely astonishing insight into the manhunt for Osama bin Laden. Bigelow clearly knows what she's doing behind the camera. One of the best films ever made, period.

9.8/10

People who added this item 225 Average listal rating (136 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.9
A beautifully wonderful, heartwarming, and astonishingly animated film, that will appeal to kids and adults alike.

Argo (2012)
Tense, excitingly and smoothly directed by Ben Affleck, and a smart script with interesting, likable and relatable character, this film will go down as one of strongest based on a true story films in my book.

9.7/10

People who added this item 1781 Average listal rating (1195 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.9

The Avengers (2012)
High octane action sequences and legitamite drama. This is what a superhero movie should be.

9.6/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 772 Average listal rating (483 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.6
A powerful, fantastically acted tragedy that makes you feel glad to be alive. This had some of the best directed scenes of the year.

9.6/10
garfield2710's rating:
Grim, but surprisingly hopeful, and uncomfortably funny, this film has a creative premise and takes advantage of it, with remarkable success.

9.5/10

Lincoln (2012)
Glorious acting from everyone involved this historical dramatization of the passing of the 13th Amendment is complex and fascinating, but may not be for people who aren't interested in history.

9.5/10

People who added this item 1024 Average listal rating (681 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.2
It's occasionally a bit too self-referential, but nevertheless it's a brilliant dark comedy, that's just as hilarious as it is unapologetically grotesque.

People who added this item 1791 Average listal rating (1203 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
Looper (2012)
Incredibly original, fast paced, mind-bending and complex, this film is a very entertaining science fiction film, though there are some inconsistencies.

Is it predictable, yes. But the characters are so charming, and the story is so engaging that you get sucked into this dilemma, and the situations are so original and quirky that it you want to know what's going to happen. One of the best contemporary romances.

Rich, vastly entertaining, epic, and gloriously satisfying, Christopher Nolan brings this grandiose saga to an action-packed and emotionally fulfilling, though admittedly flawed end.

A darker more realistic look at Spider-Man, this movie is exciting and is in my opinion an improvement over the Raimi Spider-Man movies.

Haywire (2012)
