Top 10 of 2012

blergies

Having spent much time carefully considering the options, Film Blerg is happy to present our Top 10 of 2012 (or as we affectionately call it, “The Blergies”). The data set of films considered where theatrically released in Australia from 1 January – 31 December 2012. A few other considerations were made, but none that are particularly interesting, nor pertinent to explanation.

Eight Film Blerg critics helped shaped our collaborative top ten, and the choices are definitely impressive. Individual lists of each critic are listed underneath our combined top ten.
