MID-2013 TOP TEN OF THE YEAR SO FAR

Man of Steel (1)

So it seems a good enough place to take stock of what’s wowed me thusfar. Let it be noted though that Sightseers, Reality, Like Someone in Love are all films that I put on my Top 20 Of 2012, and I’m therefore making disqualified for 2013 contention. Also I’ve sadly yet to see StokerSpring Breakers and The Bling Ring (as well as a good other films thusfar).

So here’s my list so far:

  1. Man of Steel

  2. The Place Beyond the Pines

  3. Upstream Color

  4. Pieta

  5. Side Effects

  6. Monster’s University

  7. Trance

  8. The Great Gatsby

  9. The Purge

  10. Star Trek Into Darkness

What’s on your Top Ten So Far?

This is my blog. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my blog is useless. Without my blog, I am useless. I must fire my blog true. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my blog and myself are defenders of my mind, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.

    BEFORE MIDNIGHT
    STORIES WE TELL
    STOKER
    UPSTREAM COLOR
    BLANCANIEVES
    MUD
    GINGER & ROSA
    WARM BODIES
    SIDE EFFECTS
    SPRING BREAKERS

    • So I've seen 4 of your Top Ten (to show how skewed mine is right now)….

      Disagree so hard with Blancanieves and Warm Bodies… so mediocre

        I'll spot you WARM BODIES. Shrugging your shoulders at BLANCANIEVES tells me you are on some serious drugs.

  • Here's my list: http://letterboxd.com/thevoid99/list/best-of-2013

    It's only based on actual 2013 releases from festivals and such.

    • Is the Pussy Riot documentary that good?

      • I think it is. Especially as it relates to what these women are fighting against where it relates to Vladimir Putin and how he tries to put church and state in the same room.
