Films 2013 (Part 1)

I have an imdb account which allows me to easily manage my to-watch and did-watch films. If you don't have one, I say sign up and manage your movie watching, if you're into that sort of thing.

Here are a few films I've watched this year (doesn't mean the film was released in 2013, just that I watched it in 2013):

  1. Silver Linings Playbook - Loved it! I came into this film not knowing much about it but was oh-so pleasantly surprised. Not to mention it's based in Philly (my city). It's a film about mental illness done in an approachable way. FYI - originally a novel.


  2. 13 Assassins - Samurais band together to kill an evil lord. I really enjoyed it and especially liked the character Kiga, I would love to watch a film just about him and learn more of his background. Subtitles.

  3. The Great Happiness Space: Tale of an Osaka Love Thief - Documentary about a host clubs in Osaka, Japan. The first time I learned about "host clubs" and found them interesting. It's also terribly sad for the hosts and the ladies they entertain (the documentary made it seem like the majority of the ladies were prostitutes). Streaming on netflix as of 11/4/2013. You can also find the full film on YouTube. Here's part one:

  4. Olympus Has Fallen - The first 40 minutes triggered so many emotions for me. I felt like I was re-living 9/11 watching all the carnage these terrorist made in Washington DC. Good flick.
  5. The Croods - I took my nephews to see this and have to say I was not impressed. Animated.
  6. Oblivion - Did. Not. Like.
  7. 3-Iron - Lovely, just lovely film about a drifter and an abused housewife. A very quiet film (few words) but aaah, just lovely. Subtitles. Streaming on netflix as of 11/4/2013. The full film is on YouTube here:
  8. The Muppets - Cute! After watching I kept singing "Man or Muppet" all day.


  9. Iron Man 3 - Action! I enjoyed it but I have to say it wasn't that memorable of a film.


  10. Disconnect - This film showcases the "negative" side effects of social networks. A sleeper film I highly recommend. Oh yeah, it stars Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard.
I will post more in the coming weeks.

  1. Good idea with posting the trailers with mini-reviews. I will have to try this myself!
