2013: A Movie Odyssey (Year in Review Part 2)

This is part 2 of my 2013 Year in Review, in which I’ve ranked and briefly reviewed every new film I saw in 2013. Part 1 can be read here. Part 3 will be released tomorrow. Yesterday saw me dissing the 15 worst films I watched last year. Today I get to be a little more positive, discussing the middle 20, until we pull out the superlative guns for tomorrow’s Top 20. This is by no means a filler post though, as every film on today’s list comes with a recommendation to watch it. Continue reading

Top 10… Anticipated of 2013

Apologies for not posting this yesterday, we had an impromptu cinema trip to see Les Miserables during the time I’d anticipated sitting down and tapping this out.

2012 was a pretty good year for movies, and it looks like 2013 could be just as good, if not better. Here’s my pick of the films I’m looking forward to seeing most this year. There’s a few that have already been released in other countries, but haven’t made their way to England yet, but in my eye’s they still count as 2013’s films.

Honourable Mention
Wreck-It Ralph
I’ve been looking forward to this film for a long time, because I do love animated films that are skewed firmly at adults. It hasn’t helped that Wreck-It Ralph has been out in America for over 2 months now, and that I’ve been hearing no end about it on The Adam Carolla Show, as he apparently voices a donut in the film. I’ve heard good things about it, but I think quite a lot of the references may go over my head, as I’ve never been a massive gamer, especially when it comes to the more classic arcade games. Anything related to Crash Bandicoot, Pac-Man, Sonic, Mario, Grand Theft Auto or Portal should be pretty clear to me, but I don’t recognise most of the villains in the picture over here. Hopefully there’ll be plenty to keep me amused though.
UK release: 8 February 2013

Zombie Mania!

Recent days have seen the release of not one, not three, but two trailers for zombie-related films that I’m really looking forward to. I’ve not had much of a chance to say quite how much I like zombies on this here blog’o’mine, but they appear in some of my favourite horror films and/or films in general, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting both of these trailers.

Most anticipated films of 2012

2011 is drawing to a close, and let’s be honest, it hasn’t been a terrific year for film, but worry not, in just over a week a new year will be upon us, and its already looking like a cinematic doozy. Here’s my pick of what’s likely to be saucering my eyes next year:
The Avengers
Marvel’s dream team of superheroes line up to face a world threatening attack, as well as each other, in Joss Whedon’s epic ultimate crossover.
