False, looking Quality wise I'd say Lincoln was the best but personally I enjoyed Wreck it Ralph the most last year.

I thought Skyfall was better than it, not by a lot though.

Considering that the trilogy itself is overrated I'll say false.

TDKR and the hobbit are the only two new films i watched in 2012 but i would have to say i enjoyed the hobbit more but that's not a fair comparison because i watched the hobbit in IMAX 3d which was fvcking sick

Nah I liked Looper better than Dark Knight Rises, and I'm probably not remembering some good movies.
I tend to see movies from all kinds of times.
Like recently I watched Panty.. Panty.. Pontypool. I loved that one. It's not a scary movie but it was fun. I loved all the Doc's lines.

If TDKR was the best of 2012 then it was a pretty dissapointing year in movies.

Dark Knight Rises was actually the worst movie I saw in 2012, coming from a huge Batman fan.

I'd say true. All the people who are saying no, what was better? Django? I certainly know it wasn't the god-awful Bourne Legacy...

Django is probably the only other one that's worthy of being there.

Skyfall? :lol: Oh please, I really thought that was average at best. I'll give you Looper, though. That was a fantastic movie.

For me the best was The Hobbit. And then TDKR, Django, Skyfall and The Avengers.

Skyfall is the best blockbuster film last year by miles, it's not even a contest. Just takes a royal dump over all the comic nerd wet dream movies.

'Les Miserables' (though it's just barely 2012).

chessmaster1989

I found it hard to enjoy Les Mis because Javert is my favorite character from it (and his songs, esp Stars, are among my favorites) and god was Russell Crowe bad.

I didn't find him distractingly bad, just flat. Very flat. I was afraid of Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter after seeing them in 'Sweeney Todd' (as an aside I propose that Tim Burton be henceforth barred from doing musicals), but they actually worked pretty well in this one (at least for their roles).

I remember seeing both The Hobbit and The Hunger Games in 2012 so while its still opinion that those are better movies than TDKR, it happens to be my opinion.

I don't know because I don't always follow the release dates but I have watched Silver Lining Playbook and Looper and they were pretty decent. But TDKR was quite inconsistent. I know I seen way more movies that came out last year but I couldn't pick the best.

I found the first half to be good, the second half to be sh!t. That's just me, though.

The whole thing was pretty badass.

Who agrees?

Primordialous

Personally I thought Skyfall was better

.....I didn't see Argo (want to see it), Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, or Django Unchained, I'm betting at least a couple of those were better than Batman as well.

Lol, The Hobbit is worse than: 

The Dark Knight Rises

Skyfall

Dredd 3D

The Avengers

Not to mention it's pacing. Still a really good movie though.

I'm surprised not many people liked that movie. Had lots of good moments and it never really took itself seriously. They didn't mind going off on a tangent because who cares about the dumb storyline? And Richard Ayoade was great.
