Best things I saw this year:Blue Jasmine (Cate Blanchett is my favorite.) American Hustle was really light and well acted. I’m from Long Island and Christian Bale’s accent was spot on.
And Frozen was fantastic. I’m singing all the songs.
Worst: Spring Breakers- I just didn’t understand it. Wolf of Wall Street- I get that we’re supposed to believe this guy is awful but it glamorized it all a bit too much and was overly stimulating, visually. Didn’t really say much in the end, besides, well, we all get scammed.
Need to see: Her, Inside Llewyn Davis

I thought Bad Grampa was hysterical! I also saw Anchorman 2 and it will take a while to stick with me, such a fan of the first one!
I still want to see Blue Jasmine…

@princesslettuce14: The only movies I saw in the theatre this year were Hunger Games 2 and Elysium – both were pretty decent. Not the best movies I’ve seen EVER, but pretty decent.
Darling Husband and I usually Netflix everything as opposed to going to the movies. American Hustle is in our “save” queue for when it comes out.
I need to see Frozen – everyone is raving about it.

When you say “this year”, do you mean 2013?
I enjoyed Dispicable Me 2, The Hobbit, Now You See Me, and We Are the Millers.
I was so-so on Frozen and Monsters University, but I think I’m the only one!
I did not like This Is the End, and was disappointed by Anchorman 2 (I was a huge fan of the first, but maybe I’ve just grown up 🙁 )
I need to re-watch both Hunger Games movies now that I read the books last week 🙂

I loved American Hustle and the Butler this year. And there are still tons of things on my list of movies to see!

I loved Frozen, and can’t wait to go see it again with my sister!
I’m not sure if this came out in 2013 because I usually rent movies, but I really enjoyed Two Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
I really want to see Gravity.

@aggie2010: I’m with you on This Is The End. Stopped watching halfway into it.
@Gemstone: I have to see The Butler!

What I’m most excited about for 2014 is Captain America and Fast 7. If that still comes out this year anyway…

@Pinkmoon: Heh, yeah I meant 2013. Excited for a lot of 2014 though.
@Little_Nut88: Is Gravity still out? I feel like I saw that in September?
I don’t know why I’m off but I really like This the the end. Maybe I don’t mind crassness?

This last year I would have to say my favorite was the movie Rush! My husband is a racing fan so I went along with him and I am glad I did!

@princesslettuce14: Haha yah, I know. I just can never keep an entire year of movies straight in my head if they were 2012, 2013, whatever. So my answer probably would have been somewhat false!

@ThunderStruck: I’ve heard such good things about that movie, it sort of flew under the radar. But I heard Daniel Bruhl is probably going to get an oscar nod.

@princesslettuce14: Someone at work was just talking about it yesterday, and I think she saw it over Christmas…? I hope it’s still out because I think it’s the kind of movie you need to see in theatres, right?

@MrsNewDay: The Butler was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. 🙂
And I agree with you…I want to see Frozen, too!

I want to see Frozen so badly. I might just have to go without Darling Husband because I’m a Disney freak!
We saw Hobbit last weekend, and it was a sad day for me. I was so disappointed.
Honestly, the movie I saw in 2013 that I thought I’d hate but ended up liking (as long as you don’t apply laws of physics or use your brain at all) was Pacific Rim. XD
