All of us at Hypable can agree that 2012 was one hell of a year for film. Aside from the record-breaking blockbusters and the critically acclaimed Oscar-baiting dramas, the power of individual fandoms showed its true colors at the box office in 2012 in a way that no one had seen since the massive Harry Potter craze brought the film series to an end two years ago.
As an anthology of film, 2012 came and went in a particularly strong fashion. Particularly, we’re proud of our individual fandoms like Twilight, Spider-Man, The Hunger Games, The Avengers, Batman, Les Miserables, and – well – anything that Emma Watson chooses to be attached to.
Fans of Hypable can surely understand that nobody loves these films quite as much as we do, so it’s with a light and jovial heart that we skewer our favorite fandoms, our favorite movies, and our favorite films of 2012 altogether. We report on these movies day in and day out, so naturally, we have more than a few opinions about the films when they finally come to theaters.
Without further ado, here are our favorite movies of 2012 if their posters had been more honest.
