Summary

People love making lists, and filmmakers are no different. Each year we talk to a host of different people as part of our enduring Five Favorite Films feature, in which -- stay with us on this one -- we ask the talent to pick their all-time five favorite films. Or, as the case may be, the ones that they're currently into, have inspired their latest project, or just randomly tumble from their minds and into the ether in an unchecked stream of consciousness. Here then, we thought we'd have a quick look back at some of the stats and highlights of 2012... Back to Article

Though in my view that any of the original Star Wars films are monumental and individually incapable of being just a top 5 slot as the trilogy is a cultural tapestry, I would amend "Empire" into a place of transcendent perfection and replace it with "Prometheus." That movies get so many points in so many different areas.
