So, people seem to be quite split (based on the lists) on whether The Hobbit and Lincoln are good/worth seeing.

Yep, I agree. I thought it was quite good back in June, but after watching it again last night I honest to God think it's pretty close to perfect.

I enjoy it but it could be 20 minutes shorter without missing much.

I also thought it was better than FSM, too.

1. Django Unchained
2. Argo
3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
4. The Dark Knight Rises
5. 21 Jump Street
6. Looper
7. Goon
8. The Avengers
9. End of Watch
10. The Amazing Spider-man

Biggest disappointment: Killing Them Softly
Biggest surprise: End of Watch

Still need to see: Zero Dark Thirty, The Master, Skyfall, Lincoln, and lots more. I think I've only seen ~25 movies from this year and there wasn't much I liked a lot that I've seen so far. I put Spider-man at 10 and didn't even like it that much...probably like a 6 or 6.5/10.
