Best of 2013: Favorite Movies of The Year



1) GRAVITY

It sucks you in, doesn't let go, and in IMAX 3D, gives you the ride of your life. Hands down the most immersive and gripping movie of the year, and also the movie that gives you the most value for your money out of such a simple premise.






2) THOR: THE DARK WORLD

I thought it was fun. REALLY fun. Much more fun than Iron Man 3 or Man of Steel. I still think Loki should have gotten top billing here though.






3) PACIFIC RIM

GIANT ROBOTS FIGHTING GIANT MONSTERS.






4) THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

Tiny hobbits fighting GIANT DRAGONS.






5) DESPICABLE ME 2

Minions! More minions! Millions of minions!






6) IRON MAN 3

Iron Minions! More Iron Minions! Millions of Iron Minions!






7) MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

It wasn't as memorable as Monsters Inc, but it was still lots of fun.






8) STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS

Saw the "revelation" coming a MILE away, and some parts could have been tighter. But overall, a damn entertaining movie. Just probably not a STAR TREK movie.






9) THE WOLVERINE

Here just so I can put up this poster again. But no, I thought this was actually Wolverine's best film, better than the last, for sure, and gave the character more, well, character. Could have done with fewer lovey-dovey scenes though.






10) ELYSIUM

Not as great as District 9 but still good. A bit heavy on the social stuff, light on the logic sometimes, but great story, good action,
