2013 in Movies: Final Report Card

This year, I saw twenty-seven 2013 movie releases. Most of these were in the theater, but five I managed to get from the library once they hit DVD. I didn’t get to see all of the movies I wanted to. There were ones that did not come to my local theater (12 Years a Slave, Her), were released during times that there was too much to see at the theater (World War Z), or were released at times I simply didn’t have any spare cash (Gravity, and yes I know it’s borderline offensive that I have not seen this movie yet!). As a result, this list is pretty incomplete. But here are the movies that I hoped were worthy of my time this year. Not all of them were great (you’ll notice that I only have two As, meaning not too many movies blew me away), but not all of them were awful. The majority of the movies I saw were B-range, which I think pretty accurately describes the year. Here’s hoping next year can deliver some high quality flicks.

So here are the movies I saw in 2013, listed from best to worst.

    Yes. Yes it is. 🙂 But you’re not alone, as I’ve got a few friends who haven’t seen it either, and they don’t have your excuse!
