Each year the American Film Institute settles for a list of the top ten American films of the year. Because I'm a member of the AFI, I got to vote this year! Some of my picks didn't make it into the top ten (like The Perks of Being Wallflower), but it's still a pretty good list.
TOP TEN AMERICAN FILMS (in alphabetical order):
BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
LIFE OF PI
SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
ZERO DARK THIRTY
TON TEN AMERICAN TELEVISION SERIES (in alphabetical order):
