2012: The top 23 movies so far!

"23?" You might say that this is an odd number for a "top" list. Yes. Yes it is. I was aiming for "Top 25", but I couldn't find two more movies that I liked enough to include in my favorites list. Anywho, just thought I'd share with you the handful of movies that I enjoyed the most so far this year!

23.) Moonrise Kingdom

I wasn't crazy about this movie like most people. 

22.) Hope Springs

Oldies but goodies. 

21.) The Five-Year Engagement 

It'd be higher on my list if it wasn't so depressing.

20.) American Reunion

I'm glad the gang got back together again.

19.) Rock of Ages

If ever I had a guilty pleasure...

18.) Safe House

I was pleasantly surprised!

17.) The Words

It's not as smart as it thinks it is, but I still like it.

16.) Jeff Who Lives at Home

The Brothers Desplat are no longer a one-hit wonder.

15.) Pitch Perfect

There's more here than just a pretty face!

14.) Ted

It's probably a good thing I like Family Guy...

13.) Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

It's got sort of a naive charm!

12.) The Master

If for nothing else, see this movie for Hoffman's stache.

11.) Dredd 3D

An action movie that takes its time and delivers on the one-liners. Wait, it promised those, right? 

10.) Wanderlust

One of the best ensemble casts this year!

9.) The Campaign 

This is what nuts feel like.

8.) The Avengers

Nerd pornography.

7.) Perks of Being a Wallflower

It scores its points for being so genuine. 

6.) End of Watch

The biggest surprise for me this year!

5.) 21 Jump Street

Funniest movie of the year.

4.) Seven Psychopaths

Marketed as a comedy, but it achieves so much more.

3.) The Grey

What's better than an hour and a half of Liam Nesson punching wolves? This movie!

2.) The Cabin in the Woods

A horror movie this far up on my list this far into the year?

1.) Argo

Smart, funny, insightful and well acted.
