1. Before Midnight
2. Gravity
3. Drug War
4. The Dark Knight Returns
5. Stoker
6. The Conjuring
7. Rush
8. Spring Breakers
9. Monsters University
10. Side Effects


Honorable Mention: Much Ado About Nothing, Last Summer (Thai), Drinking Buddies

Pending a second watch: Upstream Color

My 2013 viewing journal has been pretty poor. I've seen eight movies, and I keep forgetting about four of them. Anyway...

1) Gravity
2) Captain Phillips

<Drop-off>

3) The Wolverine
4) Iron Man 3

The films I keep forgetting that I've seen, none of which deserve placement (in order of when I saw them)
The Great Gatsby
World War Z
The Host
(which, for some inexplicable reason, I keep calling The Vow)
The Lone Ranger

Films I'm interested in (in no particular order)
The Desolation of Smaug
American Hustle
The Wolf of Wall Street
Saving Mr. Banks
Inside Llewyn Davis

My current top 10 of the year:

1. Side Effects
2. Captain Phillips
3. Gravity
4. The Conjuring
5. Iron Man 3
6. Elysium
7. The Company You Keep
8. Disconnect
9. Jack the Giant Slayer
10. White House Down

Good year so far with plenty of great stuff to come and also some things I need to catch up on.


Bottom 5:

1. Scary Movie V
2. Getaway
3. Lords of Salem
4. A Good Day to Die Hard
5. The World's End


Looking forward to:

Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Her
Wolf of Wall Street
Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Out of the Furnace
Dallas Buyers Club
Lone Survivor
American Hustle
All is Lost
The Book Thief
Thor: The Dark World
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Sunlight Jr.
Philomena
Homefront
Oldboy
Nebraska
Delivery Man
Best Man Down
Saving Mr. Banks
Anchorman 2
Grudge Match


And if the new Jack Ryan movie comes out this year then I'm definitely looking forward to that as well. But because Wolf of Wall Street was bumped to Christmas, that means Jack Ryan is probably bumped to early 2014, unfortunately.

I don't think Jack Ryan is going to get delayed just cause Wall Street got bumped up. Anyways that two of your bottom titles are two of my favorites, though I do agree on World's End, didn't hate it but it was pretty dissapointing compared to Hot Fuzz.

Also glad i'm not the only one looking forward to the remake of Oldboy, I believe the original film was not that good and has significant room for improvement.

Jack Ryan and Wolf of Wall Street are both from Paramount. There is no way they are going to have both of their films released in the same day. Unfortunately, Ryan is gone. They just haven't officially announced yet.

I've actually never seen the Oldboy. But even if I had, and even if it's as good as it's suppose to be, I'd still be looking forward to it because Spike Lee usually delivers and makes great movies.

I hated Hot Fuzz. I loved Shaun of the Dead though. As for World's End? It's not as bad as Hot Fuzz but I still didn't like it.

It just seems strange to delay it when the trailer just came out, and I thought I heard that Wall Street was the film that was being delayed until next year.

The reason why they are putting Wolf of Wall Street on December 25 and moving Jack Ryan is because of a little thing called Oscar. The movie is expected to be a major awards contender, as Martin Scorsese movies often tend to be.

I wish they would move Jack Ryan to Wall Street's original November 15 release date instead of 2014, but then I guess that won't give the studio enough time to market the movie since November is nearly here already.
