In terms of volume and quality, 2012 has been an absolutely stunning year for film. I cannot remember the last time there were this many films produced and distributed by some of the best directors in the business, all within one year. Ridley Scott returned to the sci-fi genre with Prometheus; Quentin Tarantino recently returned in full idiosyncratic fashion with Django Unchained; Ang Lee has blown the majority of us away with his glorious celebration of life in Life of Pi; Steven Spielberg tackled presidential history with Lincoln; Christopher Nolan bought the curtain down on the Batman series with The Dark Knight Rises and Sam Mendes breathed new life into 007 with Skyfall. Picking this list is not an easy one. The beautiful thing about a top 15 list is that it accepts films that are not exactly Oscar worthy candidates but were entertaining none the less.

So, these are what I consider »
