The Best Films of 2012, Part II

Here we are again! Oscar 2013 is right around the corner, which means it's time for me to release my predictions. I generally do a fairly good job (but of course, the award shows are generally fairly easy to predict), but this year, there are some categories that are definitely up in the air. If you missed my first post, detailing what I consider to be the best films of the year, check it out here. As always, any film marked in red is one I did not see, so take that into consideration. Away we go!

The Best Films of 2012, Part I

Yay! It's Oscar season again! AREN'T YOU EXCITED? Well, probably not -- most people enjoy lambasting our OBSESSION WITH CELEBRITIES, so honest interest in the Academy Awards is often seen as antediluvian these days. That's all right. There are certainly more important things, but then, I enjoy celebrating art, and the awards are an opportunity for me (and many others) to see films that we otherwise might not check out ... films not about robots or superhumans punching each other.

With that out of the way, let's start with the rundown of my favorite movies of the year. In no particular order!
