20 Top Grossing Movies of 2012

The 20 best movies for 2012 are listed below. The listing is based on U.S. sales only and not world wide box office numbers. I have personally seen 12 of these movies in the theaters.

One of my favorite things to do is to spend time at the movie theater. My favorite for 2012 had to be the latest James Bond film “Skyfall”. I have always been a huge Bond fan since I can remember and “Skyfall” is probably my new favorite of the Daniel Craig Bond’s.

The Avengers, Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man were also enjoyable. Ted was by far the best comedy of 2012. I realize Ted was really nothing more then Family Guy times 10, but I couldn’t remember when the last time I laughed so hard at the theater.
