A 2013 List About Movies

Movies and shit. List is some of my favorite albums of the year, rdescriptions are movie talk.
1In Vain
AEnigma


Prisoners. This movie kicked ass. Gyllenhaal and Jackman were outstanding, and it was quite gripping. The torture and interrogation scenes floored me. One of my absolute favorite of the year. 9/10
2Sigur Ros
Kveikur


Dallas Buyers Club. Get it...because Jonsi is gay. ah whatever. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. McConaughey was pretty damn great, and Leto was good, but I'm really annoyed that he's basically a shoe-in for the oscar. I don't think it was that good of a role, and i feel like its just the type of thing that people will flip out over even though its not that great. eh, either way, good flick. 8/10
3Locktender
Kafka


The Wolf of Wall Street. Pretty fun no doubt, a little long, but everyone was phenomenal, and it made you feel pretty involved. Really great movie in Scorsese's repertoire. I really need to get my hands on some ludes. 8.75/10
4Protest the Hero
Volition


12 Years a Slave. I've got money on this one, or #5 for best picture for the Oscars (this one is far more deserving). I thought it was funny, because you could totally hear the british in just about everyone's voice. Nonetheless, Ejiofor is convincing, and the whipping is gruesome but amazing (can whipping be amazing(ask your mom)) 9/10
5Cryptodira
Recursions


Gravity. I think this was one of the most overrated movies of the year. While it was good, and well-made, the drama about her life at home was very superficial and didn't connect with me. Also, not to be a nit-picking little prick, but in an integral scene there was a major flaw in physics that bothered me. The scene in which Clooney leaves Bullock for the rest of the movie, right before he lets go, there is tension on the rope as if something were pulling him. Without gravity in space that isn't possible, so when he let of of it and drifted away. realistic he should've not moved. grrrr. 6.5/10
6Gorguts
Colored Sands


Inside Llewyn Davis. This one seemed to slip under the radar for most people, but I found it overflowing with enjoyment. Oscar Isaac surprised me quite a bit, and this one can easily fit in with the Coen brother's outstanding array of movies. 8.5/10
7Man Mountain
To Call Each Thing by its Right Name


Her. Phoenix is criminally under-appreciated. This movie reminds me a little bit of Lars and the Real Girl with chubby Ryan Gosling (but better). Very intriguing, and most definitely not for everyone, but it was equally as fun as it was dramatic. 8.5/10
8Russian Circles
Memorial


Nebraska. Will Forte was surprisingly great, as was Dern (not as surprising). Some parts of this one didn't click with me as well as I would have liked, but it was still a quality film from the year. It definitely has a unique aura and feel to it. 7.75/10
9The Ocean
Pelagial


American Hustle. Didn't really dig this one as much as most people did. It wasn't unenjoyable, I just didn't really get into it. I need to re-watch it soon, but from the first watch, I wasn't overly impressed, and Jennifer Lawrence was alright, but people love her. 6.5/10
10The National
Trouble Will Find Me


Captain Phillips. Hanks was good, as he usually is, and it was a good movie, but I really don't think it is deserving of Oscar talk, but there's no way it's not going to get some (c'mon, an american hero movie that is actually decent is inevitably going to be thrown in the race). 7.5/10
