The Best Movies of 2012

The Playlist By The Playlist Staff | The Playlist January 1, 2013 at 2:01PM

So far....Ok, first off, sorry to disappoint you if you thought this was going to be one big master list from all of our contributors. One thing is clear: getting a consensus out of the entire The Playlist is impossible and man, even if we put it to a vote (which we've done in the past), the results are generally dissatisfying and as you know, consensus tends to get a little dull. So instead, this will be our one-stop shopping for all our Best of 2012 year-end lists (and all our Best of 2012 content). So far we have four fairly distinctly different top 10 lists and they're only going to get more and more different from these two (at least we suspect as much). Here's the top 10s we have so far. Bookmark this page for more lists that will be added soon. Happy New Year and thanks for reading in 2012.
