Best of 2012

So, here are some of my favourite things from 2012. I will say right now, I don’t know if all of these started or were out in 2012, but I watched them or they ended in 2012 so fair dos!


I have watched a lot of movies this year, but not actually at the cinema, I don’t think PI actually went to the cinema that much this year. But I think a lot of people (hopefully!) will agree with me, critics, storywise or what ever you could pick at, The Avengers (I still call it this regardless of the UK title!) was my favourite film of 2012. I think it was the whole getting superheroes together from separately good films, into one awesome action flick, which actually was funny as well as action packed. You could literally stick this movie on no matter what time of day, how your feeling and it just makes you feel happier. And the fact that we defiantly have Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 to look forward to this year and Captain America 2 in 2014, it’s just an added cherry.

Honourable mention to The Dark Night Rises too, which was a suitably fitting end to a movie franchise, that shows that sequels don’t have to loose the shine of the earlier movies. While in my eyes, The Dark Night will always be the better film, being the first of the franchise I saw, I think I’ll grow to love it more with more viewing (currently sat of my Christmas Present pile). I also really enjoyed The Hunger Games and surprisingly for some, John Carter was another film I enjoyed! I have watched many many more fantastic films this year, just look back through this blog and you’ll find me mentioning them.


It’s been a fantastic year for TV, so much that I don’t have an actual stand out favourite, I’m just gonna list the programmes I’ve loved:

  • Miranda
  • New Girl
  • Merlin
  • Sherlock
  • Downton Abbey
  • Revenge
  • The Big Bang Theory

Plus many many more (this seems to be a common denominator for me lol!). Althought I think I could literally live off a diet of The Big Bang Theory if I were to choose just one! I’ve also said goodbye to two show this year that as a teenager (past) I grew up on – Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. I, even though I am way past being a teenager, need a new teen show (I’m hoping it will be The Carrie Diaries).


Like previous, I have enjoyed and listen to many fantastic songs this year, but I think one album just made my 2012 – Taylor Swift’s “Red”. I am a huge Taylor fan and this album was just pure loveliness. I was a huge of Fearless and although Speak Now was great, I didn’t think it topped it, but Red did! I especially love “All To Well”.
