    I barely saw enough new movies this year to do a proper Top 10 list, but I did see more than 10 movies I liked, so here's my list:

    10) Stoker
    9) Ender's Game
    8) Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
    7) Argo
    6) Lesson Of The Evil
    5) The Grandmaster
    4) Prisoners
    3) The Hunt
    2) Zero Dark Thirty
    1) Pacific Rim

    and to make me feel a little bit better, my Top 10 movies I saw for the first time this year, regardless of release date:

    10) 3:10 To Yuma (the original)
    9) The Hunt
    8) Zero Dark Thirty
    7) The Life Of Oharu
    6) Paths Of Glory
    5) The Wicker Man
    4) High Noon
    3) Pacific Rim
    2) The Passion Of Joan Of Arc
    1) Love Exposure

    Ok, I feel better.

    And this is my top 10 music list, reposted from another thread, so I can refer back to it later.

    Haven't had anywhere near enough time to spend listening to music as I'd like, I've barely listened to a lot of stuff I picked up this year, but the #1 album of the year for me is easily Chelsea Wolfe's "Pain Is Beauty". It's the easiest decision since the last time PJ Harvey released an album.

    The rest of my top 10, in no particular order:

    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
    Skinny Puppy - Weapon
    Ben Frost - Black Marrow
    Matt Elliot - Only Myocardial Infarction Can Break Your Heart
    Thought Forms - Ghost Mountain
    Hans Zimmer - Man Of Steel Soundtrack
    Download - LingAM
    Ludovico Einaudi - In A Time Lapse
    Mogwai - Les Revenants



    Honorable mention:
    Zola Jesus - Versions
    Giles Corey - Hinterkaifeck
    Autechre - Exai
    Russian Circles - Memorial
    Pelican - Forever Becoming
    Tim Hecker - Virgins
    Jesu - Every Day I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came
    Rachel Grimes - Compound Leaves
    Lustmord - The Word As Power

    I guess I got through more than I had thought. Still lots of **** I didn't even get to listen to yet. And now that this thread is here, I've got a lot more **** I need to check out.

    My top 10 music in no particular order:


    Editors-The Weight Of Your Love



    Neko Case- The Worse Things Get The harder I Fight



    Frank Turner-Tape Deck Heart



    Motörhead- Aftershock



    Hanni El Khatib- Head In The Dirt



    Dropkick Murphys_ Signed and Sealed in Blood



    The Courteeners- Anna



    Billy Bragg- Tooth and Nail



    Jake Bugg- Shangri La



    1975-S/T

    Too many "Honorable Mentions" to list.

    All in all a pretty decent year for music, a lot of good stuff came out. A particularly good year for me as three of my all time favs, Motörhead, Billy Bragg and Neko Case came out with new stuff. And I have to say Jake Bugg is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
