AFI Names Top Ten Films/Shows of the Year, Liked Batman More Than You'd Think

December 10, 2012


With some time left before they need to next remind us that Citizen Kane is The Best Movie Ever, the American Film Institute has put together a more specific list of the best of 2012, an inventory of their top ten films and ten television series--unranked except that all of these are better than everything else. It's mostly the kind of selections you'd expect--Abraham Lincoln: The Movie, Hugh Jackman Sings!, Kill Terrorist Codewords--but, somewhat surprisingly, The Dark Knight Rises made it on there, beating out more awardsy things like The Master, Amour, and you could even say Skyfall. On the TV side of things, the continued lack of a Citizen Kane: The Legendary Journeys meant AFI had to honor some other shows instead. Here are the full listings:

Beasts of the Southern Wild
The Dark Knight Rises
Django Unchained
Les Misérables
Life of Pi
Moonrise Kingdom
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty

American Horror Story: Asylum
Breaking Bad
Game Change
Game of Thrones
Mad Men
Modern Family
The Walking Dead
