I saw Pacific Rim on a recent flight.

I still think the concept is really stupid, but they executed that terrible concept flawlessly. I had a lot of fun with the movie.

On that flight I also watched The Addams Family (from the 1990s, with Christopher Lloyd as Fester). I forgot how much fun the Addams Family was. I may have to track down the sequel.

Yup, this is pretty much the film in a nutshell. Its a ridiculously stupid idea (its basically a small child playing with toys in a sandbox) that wound up being awesome.

Is "Ender's Game" going to get a sequel (perhaps through TV) like Lionsgate originally indicated in early November? I haven't been able to find anything more recent about it and Lionsgate was supposedly set to make a decision on whether "Ender's Game" would be standalone or not by Thanksgiving.

I would love to see Speaker for the Dead as a film, but they'd have to shave it quite a bit to keep a PG-13 rating...

So I was thinking back on what movies I saw this year and wondering which I would choose as the best film of 2013. I was surprised at what film I whittled that down to: The Lone Ranger.

Out of curiosity, what is everyone else's favorite film of 2013?

Man... Monsters University, Warm Bodies, Gravity, or Catching Fire. I would have to think about that.

Other movies I saw this year:
Iron Man 3: Fun movie, but definitely not my favourite.
The Lone Ranger: Didn't like.
World War Z: Meh.
The Book Thief: I enjoyed this movie a lot more than most people because I'm a fan of the book, but because of the pacing issues I can't say it was my favourite.

I'll also probably be seeing The Desolation of Smaug and American Hustle before the year is out, but I highly doubt either of them will be my favourite movie of the year.

...I watched the Lone Ranger on a flight recently, and all I could think is "what did I just watch?" It came to Johnny Depp being and kind of racially insensitive for almost three hours.

I don't think I saw too many movies this year, but my favourite was probably Argo, with Man of Steel being up there.

I saw...

Machete Kills
Man of Steel
Star Trek Into Darkness
Gangster Squad
The Last Stand
Iron Man 3
The Lone Ranger
Pacific Rim
Gravity
Escape Plan

Note: Argo came out last year.

And I didn't like Man of Steel...at all. So many plot holes, they killed the movie for me.

I also really like westerns, so I enjoyed watching The Lone Ranger a lot. I saw it with my family. It was really nice.

I didn't see it, but I still hate it (even though I know that's unfair). I have issues with

No. I didn't like it either.

As for my favorite movie this year, I'd have to say Gravity.

Gravity was also my favorite. But loved IM3 and the new Trek too.

Nah, not really. Nim is just a location where nothing like what they did in the film happened (its also a wonderful story about mice if anyone has read that).

Its not The Hobbit anymore, its just an action film. There's a hobbit and some dwarves and elves and even a dragon, but it only goes with the basic bones while adding padding.


Whoops, I mean Mim. But the secret of Nimh is cool too.

I still haven't seen The Desolation of Smaug and I'm not sure if I'm going to. I haven't been hearing very good things. I'll probably just wait until DVD.

I've seen The Lone Ranger and Man of Steel in the past two days. Both were pretty much meh to me.
