Here we go, my Favorite Of 2013.
GRAVITY – Easily interchangeable with my number 1 pick. GRAVITY was one of the greatest theater experiences I've had in years. I'll probably never own this movie until I get a legit home theater. Anything less would just not cut it.
THE WORLD'S END – A fitting end to the Three Flavors Trilogy.
AMERICAN HUSTLE – I cannot wait to see this again! A common reaction I have to great con artist movies. So many memorable scenes. One of the best cast ensembles 0f 2013!
THE SPECTACULAR NOW – One of the best films about being a teenager I've seen in years, or probably ever.
THIS IS THE END – In the hands of anybody else, this would've just been a prequel to GROWN UPS.
THE CONJURING – This was my favorite film for quite awhile. It's still no question my favorite horror movie of 2013.
YOU'RE NEXT – My second favorite horror movie of 2013. In fact 2013 has been a great year for horror. Haven't been this excited about the genre in a long time.
THE KINGS OF SUMMER - Nostalgia wins every time with me. 2013 was a great year for coming of age films.
IRON MAN 3 – At this point I really believe Marvel Studios can do no wrong. It'll be Sony or Warner Brothers that causes the demise of comic book movies.
PACIFIC RIM – The coolest movie of the summer!
RUSH – I hate racing! But watching these two rivals go back and forth was one of the most entertaining things I've seen all year. Great acting! Great film!
MUD – What alternate reality did we all step in where Matthew McConaughey is now one of the best and coolest movie stars working today?
FRANCES HA – Some just see hipster B.S when it comes to this film. I see one of 2013's most charming films and a nice love letter to 60's French New Wave.
