‘Dark Knight Rises’ tops MTV’s Best Movies of 2012 List

The MTV Movies team have announced their top ten films of 2012 and right at the top is Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie.

Josh Horowitz writes “How do you follow up one of the best comic book-inspired films of all time anchored by an immediately iconic performance? You go bigger. You raise the stakes. And you put an exclamation point on the end of it. That’s what Christopher Nolan did to close out his awe-inspiring take on the legend of Batman in “The Dark Knight Rises,” and it’s why it’s our favorite film of 2012.”

Marion Cotillard in "The Dark Knight Rises," MTV's choice as movie of the year.

New released “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Hunger Games” made the bottom of the list which is dominated by “Popcorn” movies and not the Oscar style films.

“The Avengers” topped the box office totals and made the list at #5.

“Chalk it up to any number of factors — the writing/directing of Joss Whedon, the master-class performances by Tom Hiddleston and others — but for my money, the success of “The Avengers” really boils down to four little words: It had a Hulk. What more do you need to know? writes Josh Wigler.

The only film yet to be released was “Zero Dark Thirty,” which comes to theaters December 19.
