Movie Bloggers Top Ten Movie Bloggers Top Ten: Skyfall Voted Top Movie of 2012 by Online Community

Earlier in the year, we thought it would be a nice idea to collate our very own online Top Ten films of all time to complement the Sight and Sound poll. We asked the online movie community to participate and got some fabulous responses.If you missed it, you can see the results of our very own poll right here. To follow up, we wanted to compile a similar list for the films released in 2012. Some of the results were predicable with others very much not so.

Below is a list of movies collated from 88 different movie blogging and journalist sources which we’ve compiled together to bring you the definitive top ten of 2012. If you have a favourite journalist of blogger, scroll down to see each individuals list of movie top top 10 (in no particular order). These lists were then combined to bring out the ultimate top ten.

So here it is – the top ten films of 2012 as voted for by a fine assortment of the UK’s online film community (and the welcome addition of a few from beyond our shores).

1. Skyfall
2. The Avengers
3. Moonrise Kingdom
4. Argo
5. The Dark Knight Rises
6. The Master
7. Looper
8. Amour
9. The Raid
10. Holy Motors

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Daniel Craig’s celebrated third appearance as one of cinema’s most endearing fantasy characters has made the top spot (40 votes in total). What’s more encouraging however, are the ones here (and those sitting on the cusp of that allusive ten) which are appealingly original and bold pieces of film-making, and have been (rightly) lauded by those passionate about them finding the audience they deserve.

Many thanks to all who contributed, and lets hope that 2013 offers a similarly superior and eclectic mix of crowd-pleasers and chin-strokers.

    Rust and Bone isn’t getting nearly enough attention in these top ten of 2012 lists. It was the absolute best combination of directing, acting and story of anything I saw this year.
