THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013)

DiCaprio’s most impressive performance. Raunchy, bold, The Wolf of Wall Street is Catch Me If You Can on crack. Hell lots of them.

BLUE JASMINE (2013)

Blue Jasmine is a strong material for character study. It is rich with personality flaws and strange quirks. A unique and elegant character-driven story neurotic women can easily relate to.

PHILOMENA (2013)

Frears triumphantly blend a touching journey of a mother finding her long lost son with Coogan’s comedy wits into a delicate brew of a heart-stirring tale.

FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY (2013)

Steampunk Nazi zombies? Yep, the greatest zombie flick you’ve been waiting for. The creature designs are INSANE. Those are what nightmares made of.

GRAND PIANO (2013)

“Play one wrong note and you die.” Well, isn’t that a huge pressure? I am blown away more than anything else by the fact that the dude is the smoothest multitasker on the planet.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG (2013)

As the first generation of the fellowship continues their unexpected journey to the Lonely Mountain of Erebor, this part deux from The Hobbit trilogy is easily a much fast-paced, action-packed, barrel of fun sailing up the river than its predecessor. I went to the cinema filled with families and kids, and they very much enjoyed…

PARKLAND (2013)

Never-before-seen perspective of J.F.K assassination tragedy¬†viewed from Jackie Kennedy, the Secret Service, FBI, Parkland doctors who treated him, the man who recorded the incident, and the Oswald family. A heartrending narrative of how one of America’s greatest losses changed their lives forever.

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS (2013)

A nonstop claustrophobic thrill ride from the beginning until the end. Oscar quality acting from Tom Hanks once more. Let’s not forget all Somalian actors who perfectly scared the hell of everyone on board. Personal pick for Film of the Year.

SNOWPIERCER (2013)

The humanity and social issues are strong with this one. Came to see Snowpiercer with no expectation at all, had no slightest idea what the story would be, and hell I didn’t even know it’s futuristic. Maybe that’s why it’s so enjoyable. Ignorance is bliss. Of course it’s not without faults. In fact, there were…

GRAVITY (2013)

Let’s not talking about the visual. Because DUH. Space nerd in me kept having a seizure. Truth is, I am more touched than thrilled. The “suspense” did not overwhelm me. The “sentiment” did. I notice plenty of symbolism. Stone floating and curled up in fetal position. You can even see the “umbilical cord”. Comfort. Safe….

THE WOLVERINE (2013)

While you get to take a closer look at his inner conflict and see the human inside the beast better than the Origins, The Wolverine suffers from tedious villains and supporting characters. I could care less about these people.
