I blew my numbers out of the park this year! I saw 26 more films this year than I did last year. I think that can be because of the fact I started working freelance from home in 2013, and basically made my own hours, so I was able to check out a handful more movies. It might be a numbers game of just seeing more films, but last year I gave 6 films an “A” grade, and this year I gave 8 films an “A”. Last years “B’s” were 24 films, and this year had 30. But then last year had 34 “D” or “F” films, and this year had 48. So does that mean this year was worse than last year? I once again don’t know, and numbers still make my head hurt.
So here’s my list of the 107 films I saw that were released in 2013, in order, and with some grades. And like an overstuffed public school classroom, a lot of people didn’t get very good grades. It also doesn’t include Inside Lleywn Davis, because I guess a critically acclaimed new film by the super accomplished Coen Bros still only warrants a limited release…? JUST PLAY IT AROUND ME ALREADY. I’M TRYING TO THROW MONEY AT YOU. I also think I’m gonna wait for Netflix on Walter Mitty and 47 Ronin. I’m just not that enthused to watch them anytime soon.
If any of the grades don’t match the score of the original review, it’s probably because I’ve rewatched it and/or changed my view on it. Here’s to another year of good filmmaking! Let’s hope 2014 doesn’t get too depressing!
