If TDKR is going to be on that list The Avengers should be first.

Also, Girls but no Justified?

I'll forgo the hrumphing and say that Cabin in the Woods would be on my personal list of 10 best movies this year easily.

It's reality TV where they put you in a ring with wild game and you have to castrate them with rubber bands before the clock runs out.
I know you're lying because I'd already be watching that show.

Game Change was that shitty HBO "Movie" about Palin and 2008 Election.

"Girls" is the cat's pajamas, and you all know it...

Of the movies, I've only seen TDKR and Moonrise Kingdome.Whenever I hear people talk about "Homeland" it's always about how it sucks now.
That seems like a bad sign, after just 1 full season, if the second season "Sucks now"

It was a fun movie but I wouldn't call it a great movie. Of the movies on the list that I've seen, Moonrise Kingdom is my favorite, followed by Argo, followed by Dark Knight, followed by Silver/Lincoln (I prefer Lincoln more on a technical level than Silver Linings but something about Lincoln just didn't connect for me).

TV Wise- I watch seven of those shows/tv movies with Game Change, Girls, and Modern Family being the only outliers. I wouldn't put American Horror Story Asylum on the list or Walking Dead. Homeland- I can see why it made it, but would prefer Justified, Community, Parks and Recreation, or South Park. And I don't know if it's Homeland Season 2 or Homeland Season 1.

Avengers was a great movie but not the type of movie that makes lists with movies like Silver Linings Playbook. Avengers was too realistic to be on that list.

We can stop there. It was a great movie. A solid script, well executed, hitting all the emotional notes without ever coming off as cheesy. Great dialog and direction with some the best character interaction I've seen in a large, ensemble cast in a while. Great acting performances all around. Of course, special effects are top notch. I'm yet to find a flaw with this flick. The only reason it's not at the top of that list is that reviewers and film critics are cunts.
