The problem is what does the  critics like personally. As an example my wife likes action movies and some love stories...  I on the other hand enjoy all kinds of movies... if you look at the individual lists of top ten sorted by critic you can judge the type of movie they like... hence their top ten may or may not meet with your top ten...  I remember when 'Patton' came out with George C. Scott the critics were split yet it has become a classic war/history movie and it could top some peoples "All time top ten" list... just as " Gone With the Wind" or "Alien" could do the same...  I know we're talking about films of 2012 here but ... my whole point is the list is only in the the eye of the critic... so don't take it too seriously... LOL

Why are these only movies from the past like three months? What about the films that received the best ratings on sites like IMDB? Like The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers? Even Skyfall is better than some of these.

Top 10 movies of 2012

1. "Zero Dark Thirty"

Like "All the President's Men" and "The Battle of Algiers," "Zero Dark Thirty" turns a story we know -- or, rather, thought we knew -- into a riveting tale of tension and suspense. Like "Zodiac," it depicts a hunt against the odds, and what that costs the people committed to following a trail of rumors and half-truths. Like "Broadcast News," it depicts the humanity and humor of a high-stress workplace, where ordinary people try to do extraordinary things and bond while getting on each other's nerves, and vice-versa. Yet it's also its own film, and defiantly so. Journalist-turned-screenwriter Mark Boal researched a script that speeds through a decade like a lightning bolt, culminating in a silent raid on a house that may, or may not, contain the most wanted man alive. Kathryn Bigelow's direction turns truth into drama -- and, yes, takes a few liberties -- moving forward with both dread and excitement. And Jessica Chastain's Maya, a monster hunter who looks into the abyss, begins the film with frustration and ends it alone, on a colossal plane, a few tears of exhaustion rolling down her face. It's not an easy fist-pumping celebration of "We did it!" but deeper, more difficult questions of "What now?" and "What next?" and "What did this cost us?" With its unadorned style and slow-burn pacing, "Zero Dark Thirty" is a technical and journalistic achievement as much as it is an artistic one, a film where silence speak volumes and illumination is found in the shadows. -- James Rocchi
