There were lots of great movies in 2013. Which one did you like best? For me, I'd have to say, RED 2. Not quite as good as the first but still fun. Star Trek Into Darkness didn't do it for me largely because of how they changed Kahn. The Hobbit was fun but the ADD Dragon was a bit silly. World War Z was more of a medical drama than a zombie movie. Oblivion was good but had confusing audio build ups that didn't go anywhere. There are still more I'm waiting to see on netflix.
Can't say that anything really stood out for me. Didn't see Into Darkness or Oblivion; Hobbit and WWZ were OK but nothing special. Lone Ranger was a missed opportunity, as was Riddick. I tend to frequently revisit my favourite films on DVD and I guess a lot of newer films suffer in comparison.
Okay now, you didn't say best scifi - so this is just general stuff: And the Moscar (Michele Oscar) goes to:
Best movie - Saving Mr. Banks; best leading actress - Emma Thompson; best supporting actress - Amy Adams; best actor in a leading role - Colin Farrell in Saving Mr. Banks (yep, I think he's really that good in that role); Best SciFi - Gravity, not scientifically correct but the 5 different space crafts are GR8 - and Sandra didn't throw up on screen, so that was a plus.
Also, I'm rather looking forward to Transcendence - a movie coming out in April about a group of computer scientists who are seeking to produce a sentient and collective intelligence. It may sink into an action flick, but the Transcendence theme is one I'm interested in.
I really enjoyed 'Gravity', even while acknowledging it maybe wasn't the best movie ever.
