12.  21 Jump Street (2012).  My rating: 8

 

13.  The Dictator (2012).  My rating: 8

Note: Hugo (2011), and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) would have both been on this list, but I didn’t count them because they were filmed in 2011.  That being said, 21 Jump Street and The Dictator would have been knocked off of the list.

I also saw the Dark Knight Trilogy in the theatre on the same night of the tragic theatre shooting.  I was not about to count Batman Begins (2005) or The Dark Knight (2008) as a part of my 2012 list.
