Anthony’s Favorite Movies of 2013

Christmas week, I blogged my 20 favorite albums of 2013 and not too many people checked it out.  Maybe there are more movie buffs than album buyers.  Based on the sales of albums and movie tickets, I might be on to something there.

Here are the first ten of my favorite movies of 2013 and noticeably missing are movies that I haven’t seen yet, but I plan on getting to in 2014:  “12 Years a Slave”, “August: Osage County” and “American Hustle”.

Now, remember, a movie is eligible if I watched it for the first time in that calendar year.

  1. I’ve seen a few of these and I liked The Great and Powerful Oz…I did have a slight problem with it though seeing as it was the story of how the wizard came to be in Oz…and predated The Wizard of Oz…I thought the costumes should of been more dated to follow along correctly. It was a good movie though. Going to check a few more of these out you suggested. I swear I think sometimes I live under a damn rock.

    • Amber,

      I think I liked the special effects and the color the most. And, of course, James Franco!

      Maybe tomorrow when I post the top ten, you’ll recognize a few of those. 🙂

      Happy New Year!

    • Andy,

      The special effects of the tsunami were incredible and the whole survival story was so touching in “The Impossible”. I loved the vibe of “The Way Way Back” and I’d love to see “We’re The Millers”. Thank you for checking out my blog and I’ll have Top Ten tomorrow.

    The only one that I saw on your list is The Millers. I bought it to watch over the holidays and well yes it was a crowd pleaser! Can’t wait to see the rest of your list.
