A Year of Movies ~ 2013
Here’s my list of must-see movies for 2013.
Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman, Elizabeth Banks, Gerard Butler, Kristen Bell, Anna, Faris, Kate Winslet, Chris Pratt, Halle Berry, Richard Gere, the ensemble cast for this comedy goes on and on. It follows 12 different story lines, each directed by a different person. I have no idea what the story lines consist of by I really want to see this movie because I love so many of the actors in it.
Another comedy with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. I loved her in Bridesmaids and of course I can’t wait to see Jason back as Michael in Arrested Developement. The winter time needs some laughter, so this is what I’ll be seeing in february.
Oz: The Great and Powerful
Another stellar cast with James Franco, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams. I love The Wizard of Oz (I’m taking my mom to see the play here in Toronto at the end of February so this ties right in after it) and this movie looks incredible. Definitely going to see it in 3D.
I’m always leary of remakes of originals that I adore. There are a few this year and I’m willing to give them a shot. Since Sami Raimi and Bruce Capbel are producing the new Evil Dead, I’m expecting it to be good, but not as good as the original, mainly because Bruce Campbell isn’t playing Ash.
May seems like the month of sequels. Ironman 3, Star Trek 2, Fast & Furious 6, Hangover 3. My pick is Epic, which I’ve been told is KIND OF like a remake of Ferngully, but I loved Ferngully so I’m fine with that.
This Is The End
Another comedy with a great cast! James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson star as themselves during a global apocolypse. Sounds funny to me!
It’s a tie for July!
The Conjuring is about a couple who are paranormal investigators who take on a case of a family being terroized by a dark presence in their remote farmhouse. It’s apparently based on a true story, but you know how that usually goes…
I want to see the feel good animated comedy Despicable Me 2 because I really loved the first one.
It was hard to get excited about any of the movies coming out in August, but Elysium, an action packed sci-fi drama set in 2159, starring Matt Damon and Jodi Foster looks promising enough.
This movie is based on a graphic novel and it features Aaron Eckhart as Adam, Frankenstein’s monster who is caught in the middle of a war between two immortal clans.
The perfect Halloween movie is the remake of Carrie. I hope they don’t mess it up. The runner-up for October is Paranormal Activity 5. I need to watch 4 first though.
Ender’s Game AND The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Another tie because two books that I love are being made into movies!
Ender’s Game features Harrison Ford as Graff and Asa Butterfield as Ender (which, by the way, is an awesome name. My dad wanted to name my brother Asa.) When I read Ender’s Game, I wondered why it hadn’t been made into a movie yet.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire, of course, is eagerly anticipated by lots and lots of fans. Can’t wait. I loved the books and loved the first movie.
Ending the year strong with a sequel? Sure, when it’s Ron Burgandy! You stay classy Blue-Eyed Bookworm readers!
