Re: Your Official Top Ten of 2013

I still haven't seen a lot of films that I think will crack my top ten but I'll list where I stand right now.

1. Gravity
2. Mud
3. Oblivion
4. A Place Beyond the Pines
5. The Wolverine
6. The Conjuring
7. Hungar Games: Catching Fire
8. The World's End
9. Iron Man 3
10. Now You See Me

I'm guessing after the next few weeks everything from 5 to 10 will probably drop off my list completely.

I feel dumb now that I missed some. Oblivion, The Wolverine, The World's End, Iron Man 3 would probably all make my list too.

Re: Your Official Top Ten of 2013

I'm horrible at getting around to newer movies, so...

1. Star Trek Into Darkness
2. Pacific Rim
3. The Night She Came Home*

Now I want to see a lot more, just to put some distance between the terrific #1 and the lousy #2 and #3.


*Documentary on the Halloween 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray.

Re: Your Official Top Ten of 2013

Not sure I can do a Top 10 despite probably seeing 20 or more films this year. There are four movies that I saw that i think merit particular praise and are movies that still resonate with me and movies I remember.

1. Before Midnight - I love all three films and I really really want to catch up on them again in 9 years. Such a perfect movie for two of the deepest and most real characters ever put on film, with a snapshot of their lives that seems not to be a story but a chronicle of real life.

2. Blue Jasmine - I am not a big Woody Allen fan, but I think that this is one of his very very best films with an insanely great performance from Cate Blanchett. Another movie that feels shockingly real.

3. Only God Forgives - Kind of on the other end of the spectrum, a movie that seems like nothing in the real world but I found it to be completely engrossing and mesmerizing. The police captain to me is one of the more memorable and intriguing characters in a film I have seen, somewhat similar to the Chigurh character in NCFOM, but a more compelling and believable version of the unstoppable force that people felt associated with Chigurh

4. Prisoners A great film, that took a TV movie subject and setup and elevated to an incredibly high level. Terrifically acted and compelling it is only brought down a little bit by the way too predictable Hollywood twist at the end.
