Haven't seen Hugo or Tree of Life but other than that....I'm still glad I don't have to make that choice because it would be a tough one for me. I really enjoyed all those other movies. I expected most of them to be good but I must say that Real Steel was an unexpected wonderful surprise to super charged me and excited me and made me feel so good after stressing out for a while on the edge of my seat.

These are some good contenders for this award. I think it will be Hugo, Rise of Planet of the Apes, or Harry Potter. I don't think they'll give it to a superhero movie even though they have some of the best special effects ever and so did the others on the list too.
