Best of 2012: Movies (and TV)

This year was a good one for movies. Here are my favorite films that I saw this year- mostly new releases, but a few older ones I came across.

The Hobbit

Bilbo is a thousand times better than Frodo. I'm sorry, but it's true. This was a lovely film. Read my review here.

The Hunger Games

Quite possibly the best book-to-film adaptation I have ever seen. I wrote about it here.

Mirror, Mirror

What can I say? I'm a sucker for colorful, cheesy retold fairy tales. My parents took me to see this one on my birthday (posted here).


Not my favorite Pixar film by any means, but still really good. Reviewed here.

The Artist

A "new" black and white silent film? I was in heaven. I wrote about it here.

While You Were Sleeping

When I watched While You Were Sleeping for the first time this year, I felt the exact same way I felt when I discovered You've Got Mail last year...where have you been all my life and how did I go this long without finding you? :) I adore this movie. I never, ever thought I would have a crush on the dad from Casper, but it happened. I got the DVD for Christmas and it was one of my favorite gifts...I watched it Christmas night.

And now for a bit of TV:

Once Upon a Time

Thanks to Netflix and Hulu, I finally caught up on my Once Upon a Time viewings. This show is awesome. {I am three episodes behind right now, because of my computer being broken, but I will watch them on Hulu before they expire.}

Doctor Who

2012 will forever be remembered as the year I found Doctor Who. I'm smitten with this show, and I'm only three and a half seasons in. I'm planning a Doctor Who post soon...

What were your favorite movies of the year?

Until next time,


  1. I loved THG and Mirror, Mirror as well, and I really want to see The Hobbit and The Artist. I just discovered Doctor Who over Christmas and I'm already completely addicted!

  2. Just saw 'The Hobbit' with my family and loved it too. Great review. :)

    Happy New Year!

  3. While You Were Sleeping is a favorite!! love it so, so much.
