Just to get a quick snapshot of the things you've seen this year, what would you say off the top of your head (recent movies or old, doesn't matter) is a good handful of worthwhile pictures you've seen? I have a little free time and would like to catch up on some good flicks.
Hot Rod was a movie that came out 5+ years ago and it stars Andy Sandberg as a really bad stuntman. The movie has funny moments because the cast is too full of funny people to not have funny moments, but overall it is a shitty storyline and tons of jokes fall completely flat, like cringe worthy bad.
I'm going to have to give the movies from this year some thought to even remember them. Lets see:
I loved This Is The End.
I really liked Star Wars Into Darkness (you have to have liked the 1st reboot to enjoy this)
Hangover 3 was 'meh' (it worked better as a bad action movie than it did as a comedy, but at least it tried something other than re-hashing the same formula)
Fast & Furious 6 was a moderately entertaining popcorn flick, but I preferred part 5.
Iron Man 3 was decent. It was nice to see bad guys do something besides build their own or steal Tony's suits. I despised part 2 with a passion, so that probably gave me low expectations going in. I also don't care that they changed characters from "how they are supposed to be."
Oz The Great and Powerful - I enjoyed it about as much as I can for a PG movie (not positive it was PG, but it had the feel of a PG movie). My expectations were low because it looked too much like the garbage Tim Burton puts out. I thought they did a good job making a modern movie while not staying true to the original Wizard of Oz.
The Last Stand - I enjoyed it, but was disappointed. My disappointment stems from being a big fan of the director and this was his first English language film, yet this was probably his worst film. I'm a big Arnold fan though and I don't expect perfection out of him, so if you just enjoy some good old Arnie fun, it can be worth a watch.
These are all the 2013 movies I can think of that I have seen. Some of those movies aren't ones I'd usually see in theaters, but I make exceptions on dates.
