2013 has been a very sparse year for new films, with so many movies which I have yet to watch. Having Star Trek Into Darkness, Man Of Steel, The Lone Ranger, Turbo, The Hunger Games Catching Fire and The Hobbit: The Desolation OF Smaug to choose from, there’s so many on my watch list which I haven’t even seen. These include, Gravity, Thor: The Dark World, and World War Z.
But out of the limited selection, It’s basically a tie between Catching Fire and Man Of Steel. The Hunger Games sequel offers a genuinely tight and well crafted screenplay, with real twists and turns, well acted and equally well-directed, taking off from where Gary Ross left off seamlessly, whilst talking it in a slightly new direction. Whist Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot is well paced, expertly told and gets better with each viewing.
So, there we have it. Man Of Steel is my Film Of The Year for 2013.
Happy New Year! 2014 is looking like it may well be a vintage year and that’s just in the build up 2015, which with the likes Batman vs. Superman, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Jurassic World and of course, Star Wars: Episode VII all hitting our screens. But first we have THIS year, with Robocop, 300: Rise Of A Empire, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and X-Men: Days Of Future Past all flickering throughout the spring and summer.
