Three Movies Added to Steve’s 2012 Rankings

The Life of Pi, The Hobbit, and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World have been added to my 2012 rankings, but I have also decided to change how I do my rankings. Rather than try to put all of them in order, I am simply pigoing to break them into categories, ranging from the great films to the weak ones. Within a particular category I will put them in the order that I saw them, from earliest to most recent. I made this decision while hobbit_posterpondering the top movies on my list. How do you rank Moonrise Kingdom, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Looper, and Argo when they are such different types of movies? I suppose you could argue that it foolish to rank movies at all, that each movie is simply what it is, yet these films are clearly better than anything else I’ve seen this year, regardless of style of movie, and I think they should be recognized as such. So, I’m going to give this type of ranking system a shot. Let me know what you think.
