Just got to see these films:
1. Gravity - okay movie. not much of a plot and generally, this was more about visual experience. And that's where the film was it's strongest. Don't see what the Oscar hype is all about though as far as the actors go.
2. Old Boy - Nothing compared to the original film of 2003 or the manga itself, however, there is some subtle differences. This reminds me of what David Fincher did with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". If you've seen the original first, your not really going to enjoy the remake.
3. Thor: The Dark World - Wasn't the best sequel at all and the story was so, so. I think, honestly, this was more about the showcasing Loki, since, everyone is gaga over Tom Hiddleston right now. Best part of the movie, honestly, was the very end, where we get introduced to the Collector played by Benico Del Tero.
4. Justice League: WAR - Another great follow up to the previous JLA animated features. This one film is suppose to restart the entire DC Animated Universe. The animation quality was decent compared to "The Flashpoint Paradox". And the opening featuring pencil work by famous comic artist, Jim Lee, was pretty sweet too.
5. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Not much of a difference from the previous film. Same scenario, different situation and new characters. The film finally starts to pick up towards the end, which to me, was a let down. Movie was as entertaining as it's predecessor.
6. The Counselor - Another let down by Ridley Scott and the casting didn't help either. The story was all over the place and at one point, your wondering what exactly is the hell going on. Whatever.
i recommend Lone survivor. It's definitely in my top 5 military movies.
This seems like it could be a good one:
Red 2 is a good movie, I was entertained.
i know I'm late but i just watched the Wolf of Wall Street. Entertaining 3 hours. I know some people didn't think Jonah Hill deserved an award for that movie- and I don't really know if he ought to have gotten nominations for it (which I think he did?)- but I thought his performance was something most definitely improved compared to his earlier films. I think that was good development for him as an actor- to have worked with Leo alone ought to have matured the shit out of him.
Just because he mostly played in comedies doesn't mean he wasn't capable of acting in dramatic roles. I don't really understand your point, considering that film is pretty immature in general. Plenty of comedy to it. A better example would have been him starring with Brad Pitt in Moneyball, which he also received nominations for.
Wolf on Wallstreet was the first movie in a long time that didn't make me want to strangle Jonah Hill so I think he did a good job. Pleasantly surprised.
Saw Vertigo last night. Brilliant film. I could spoil myself so hard and still be tense.
Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy:
Can´t say anything about Short Term 12, haven´t seen it but i agree with Prisoners and Frances Ha and disagree with the rest, there were a lot of better movies in 2013 that stayed underappreciated.
