I only saw three films in theatres in 2012. I enjoyed all three but here's my order:

1. Django Unchained
2. The Dark Knight Rises
3. Lincoln

I wanted to see Argo and The Master but just did not get around to it. I'm assuming there's a few others I cannot think of off hand as well.

Almost 3/4 of the movies released in 2012 are already on DVD. Did you see any of them on DVD?

Don't tell that to the Avengers groupies. Just watched it a few days ago and I can't help but think it looks like a television show. The characters, dialogue, action scenes, I appreciated even more. But the cinematography and production design is ****ing terrible. Whedon's work on TV carried to feature films.

I did not. I kind of lost my DVD lifeline when my video store closed. There's Red Box, but I tend to opt for streaming Netflix instead, which tends to not carry a lot of brand new releases.

Avengers was fun, but I barely made it though a second viewing of it.
i've watched TDKR about four times and still wouldnt mind watching again.

Yeah, Netflix is pretty bad these days.

Looper was fantastic (as was Skyfall).

Dredd is probably an honorary mention for me as well.

So far I'd say it's:

Skyfall
The Dark Knight Rises
Killing Them Softly
Ruby Sparks
End of Watch

Just missing the cut: Looper

Still planning to watch: Argo, Django Unchained, The Hobbit, Lincoln, Hitchcock, The Impossible

Critically overrated (IMO, of course): Moonrise Kingdom, Zero Dark Thirty

EDIT: And I totally forgot about Cabin in the Woods which I liked more than End of Watch. It's way too early to make a list. Too many of the top movies left to see. Summary so far is that Skyfall was fantastic, Ruby Sparks is the unknown gem and I have no idea why Zero Dark Thirty is getting so much awards buzz.

I saw FLIGHT and Silver Linings Playbook in theater...

Both were really good.

No particular order

TDK Rises
Silver Linings Playbook
Looper
DJango
Wreck It Ralph

Have yet to see: Zero Dark Thirty and Aargo ... they could bump one or two of these bad boys off the list.

Just Missed:

End of Watch
Dredd
Flight
