That time of year! My Top 5 of the year. As always Im only including films Ive seen so apologies on missing any...
5. The Way Way Back
- can't beat a good coming-of-age movie and this did it form me. Sam Rockwell is on fire
- the Matthew McConaughey revival continues. Better than Killer Joe in my book. Enthralled all the way to the end!
3. Man Of Steel
- probably the 'Prometheus' of 2013. A film I hyped for ages. Love the character. They took a different direction with it which Im happy with. just wish they had managed to keep John Williams score...
2. The Worlds End
- the work from Pegg/Wright/Frost has become something of a point to make when stating our great comedy exports from the UK. Hilarious film, great ending to the themed trilogy and lived up to expectations for me.
- no surprise here. Stunning. Great in 3D. A gripping thrill ride and for the first time in a long time there was stuff in there that I was left wondering 'how did they do that?'
Honourable mention doesn't really go to one film this time. Saw a bunch of films I was pleasantly surprised buy and really liked; The Wolverine, Behind The Candalabra and The Kings of Summer all great movies to check out.
Didn't have a complete bottom five thankfully as I missed as much of the crap as I could but here are 2 that were pants regardless;
Sharknado. 'So bad it's good'. No just bad guys. If I want to see a stupid low-fi B-movie of the today I'll watch Sharktopus with Eric Roberts. Texas Chainsaw 3D; was willing to give this a go. How bad can it be... pretty rubbish and so incorrect with things. Crazy...
On to 2014!!! I expect 2 films in my top 5 already so if this goes tits up Im not going to have a good year. Godzilla and The Lego Movie! See you in the new year
