2013 was another great year for Hollywood films and I'm excited for what to come this year. Among the many movies I have seen, these are my 13 picks for 2013:
1. Man of Steel - Huge Superman fan. Watched this film 5 times and I still can't get enough of it.
2. Gravity - Really surprised with this film. If not for MOS, this will surely be my number 1 film. Sandra gave a strong performance and I'm hoping she be rewarded with an Oscar.
3.The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - Peter Jackson did it again. It was one of my best iMAX experiences. The fast frame rate really did the trick.
4. Star Trek: Into Darkness - Always been a huge fan of JJ Abrams and yeah I love burning my cornea with his lens flare.
5. Life of Pi - One epic Ang Lee film. Visually stunning and the story is engaging.
6. Iron Man 3 - A departure from the last 2 Iron Man films and it's refreshing to know that Marvel is taking a much darker and bolder films.
7. Frozen - I thought the Snowman was cheesy when I first saw the trailer so it was only after its second week of showing that I decided to watch and boy I was wrong. The graphics are fluid, the songs top-notched.
8. Les Miserables - Anne Hathaway blew me away. I thought I would not cry but alas, when she sang
her piece, it's hello tears for me.
9. The Croods - Fun and action-packed animated film by Dreamworks.
10. The Conjuring - Clapping hands will never be the same again. Instead of the usual horror films, Wan made use of the environment making this one a very strong horror film.
11. Pacific Rim - Action-packed and the effects are really impressive.
12. Hunger Games: Catching Fire - An improvement in all aspect. Gone are the cheesy parts.
13. Djando Unchained - I have a soft spot for Quentin films and for me this is one of his best films alongside Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction.
Happy New Year, everyone!
