The Dark Knight rises was good. Top 10 worthy? Absolutely not. Moonrise Kingdom was unwatchable.

@NY Yankees 23 2. Skyfall might be considered a "British" movie since it's Bond and produced by two British people and directed by one. AFI only awards American made movies. Last year The Artist and Harry Potter got special awards outside the top 10 because they weren't American made and same with The King's Speech the year before. Although it puzzles me that Les Miserables made the cut considering that is also produced and directed by British people so who really knows this year.

Sons of Anarchy shouldn't have just made the list of best TV shows, it should have topped it.

I was skeptical about TDKR at first, but the more I watch it the more I appreciate it.

I haven't seen half of the list so can't comment on it, but surprised that "Flight" isn't on the list.
Guess I will watch the others and make my opinion then.

maybe a spoiler... for Argo





I did like the Argo overall, but didn't like the suspense at the end. They put every cliche suspense moment that can happen that it actually took me out of enjoying the movie and made me wonder about the "based" on truth part. It was "too Hollywood" - or maybe that was the point?

So many movies to see that I have yet to see! Glad to see Moonrise Kingdom and The Dark Knight Rises finding some love during awards season! I still really want to see Lincoln and Argo. Can't wait for Zero Dark Thirty and Django Unchained!

I'm in agreement with most of the selections... but Girls? That's a truly horrible show. A little surprised Dark Knight Rises is there too. It was good but definitely not a great film.

I agree with the sentiment about Girls. I didn't like Tiny Furniture, gave Girls a chance (heck I've watched almost all the episodes) and it's garbage. It's almost like people say they like it to appear intellectual.

I was really disappointed in ARGO...no suspense and Affleck should not have cast himself in the lead...

Don't understand why all the critics are tripping over themselves with praise for this one...

I found nothing award-worthy about it...

I love seeing The Dark Knight Rises make this list. I'm admittedly biased as a big Batman fan and Nolan fan, but I think people are really overlooking the quality of this film. Nolan took Bruce Wayne to a very brave, surprising place and the goals of Bane are richer and more nuanced than people are giving the writers credit for. There are really two distinct camps for this film: those who have seen it once and those who have seen it at least twice. The film has a complex plot that leaves most folks' head spinning with questions after the first viewing, but everything falls in place quite nicely upon second and third viewings. If anyone out there only saw it only once and was disappointed, I'd suggest giving the film another shot. I have three different friends who were really disappointed after their first viewing who fell in love with it after seeing it a second time.

The dark knight rises and girls are on the list because some people had a different opinion than others about the film. Lol all you want, but the truth is people have opinions. If you went to college you would know that. Grow up or keep up with the LOLing, and the I'm shocked that made the list. It should never be shocking that someone sees something different from you.
