Re: Still Waiting for 2013 to Deliver
In some ways I'm reminded of the following:
Of movies released so far this year that I've seen: Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Side Effects, Bullet To The Head and Olympus Has Fallen neatly fall into that category. None of them would make it on to a top 10 list, if they do (as Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol did two years ago) then it's a weak year for movies. But for in-between time killer movies that don't insult one's intelligence they're not bad or at least they're an improvement over the inbetweens of 2009-2011.
So far, from my perspective, 2013 has given us two stand-outs (THe Place Beyond The Pines and Before Midnight). At this point, 2012 had given us the same number.
