My Top 20 Films of 2012

It’s that time of year again, so here’s my top 20 films of what 2012 has had to offer.

I think it’s fair to say that it’s been a very hit and miss year for film this year with some exceptional releases scattered throughout 2012, but with some completely disappointing films filling in the months between (Anything involving Taylor Kitsch, I’m looking at you!). From the end of trilogies (The Dark Knight Rises) to the start of new ones (The Hunger Games, The Amazing Spider-Man), to the combination of many film characters into one big blockbuster (Avengers Assemble) and to some brilliant novel adaptations (On The Road, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), we’ve certainly had it all. Read below to see what I thought of the year in film, and feel free to let me know what you thought about the year too.

I still need to see a couple more films, of course, so for a more up to date list you can visit my Letterboxd page. (Also, please note that I go by UK release dates.)

Trailer Trash Feature: 28th April – 11th May

(Bi-weekly feature written for Lost In The Multiplex)

The past two weeks have been pretty big trailer wise, including the latest releases for three of this summer’s most anticipated films including Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man. Could it get any better? Aside from a couple of other new trailers, namely the first for Ruben Fleischer’s The Gangster Squad, not really. Whilst we do have quite a few new films to discuss in this week’s feature, they just don’t include any dark knights or a Ryan Gosling. Still, we can’t always be that picky.
