A horror film that doesn't rely on gore, or jump scares, but doesn't shy away from them either. It's one of those films that just builds this intense atmosphere that will really freak you out. Also, that ending.

very much looking forward to "Her" on friday

Jackhammer - i'm with you on Worlds End....and would easily put it in any top 10 list for the year....and i loved all the Sisters of mercy references


Gimme The Loot

not at all what i expected but actually much better

so what i expected was a film about graffiti artists trying to tag the golden apple at mets stadium...and i many ways it is that simple.....but what comes out is a really well done story about two people in NYC having a bad day....the script is witting and very realistic....both major players are played out very well....and the film overall just left me feeling good....highly suggest this

Fruitvale Station


This movie hit me right in the feels. It made me look more into the real life events that this movie portrays but after looking into it.

I'm a little mad at how the director decided to gloss over a few things and purposely went for a sympathetic reaction to something that was much more complex than he ended up portraying.

This movie also had the benefit of coming out around the time that the Trayvon Martin verdict was being given.

Once again Octavia Spencer shows off her great acting chops and I wouldn't be surprised to see her get an Oscar nom for supporting from this movie.

Yeah, I can see how you might be mad about the absolute sympathy for Oscar Grant. In fact, the movie may have been better and more thought provoking if it had been a little more balanced. I remember the real event like it was yesterday (it was news headlines for like months, complete with all kinds of video footage) and, unlike the Trayvon thing, this was just a very sad and frustrating event for almost everybody.

^this and American Hustle are next on my list

that being said i got the two big ones out of the way

and that being said......i agree 1000000 % with Exoskeletal....the best movie of 2013 is Her and Inside Llewyn Davis

and that being said....i have to admit that when it comes to something that hits me so personally like both of these films did....i just can't express myself well in this format....i am by far a more "conversation" person than i am a writer

and that being said....i still think Nebraska easily is the greatest achievement in cinematography this year....although i could watch two hours of the car scenes alone from Inside Llewyn Davis....and i can't even begin to describe the art that was done with the filming of Her

i'm not gonna try and write something for either of these films...as Exoskeletal covered them perfectly without any spoilers

what i will say about both of them....is that both stuck with me in both good and bad ways (bad having to do with forcing me to reflect which of course = good....but in both cases sucks for me) and that i actually think that both of these films should be seen by everyone....whether they understand them or not....i think the major points of both will seep through

i cannot think of a single person on this website that would not in some way benefit from both of these pictures

Yeah, okay no. I have so many complaints about Her but I will only focus on a few of them.

Hell no it is not MY film of the year for 2013.

I hated Theodore so badly. He was so sensitive and a ball of emotions. He was basically a man child that hasn't learned to deal with his emotions properly over the years. There is one line in the movie that wrapped up how I felt. A friend of his at the office said "you are half man and half woman inside". I wanted to yell at the screen that he is all woman on the inside. He was a huge vagina in the worse of ways. I couldn't relate to him at all!!!

I understand the premise of the movie that with technology and social media we end up isolating ourselves and being locked into our own little worlds but I wanted to slap the **** out of Theodore for running away from reality and putting his life on hold to live out this fantasy with an AI.

The only bonus was the cinematography. I'm pretty sure everyone sitting in the theater with me was tired of hearing me groan loudly at the ridiculousness that I was watching on the screen.

In theaters, American Hustle, and right before that, The Desolation of Smaug.

In general, Safety Not Guaranteed.

I really enjoyed American Hustle, Smaug was all right, and Safety Not Guaranteed exceeded low expectations.
