movies-to-see-2013

It’s that time of year again when many websites out there reflect on the year that was and make lists to accommodate readers with a snapshot of what movies to see or skip.  It’s for entertainment value; you should know that going in; lists and opinions are subjective and not to be taken too seriously.  Subjective things depend on your own ideas and opinions: there isn’t any universal truth to the best movies of any year.

Having said that, check out the Movies You Should Have Skipped in 2013.  Below you will find the best movies I saw this year; with the exception of The Best Movie of the Year, the rest are in alphabetical order.

Check out the Movies You Should Have Seen In 2013 below and let me know what were some of your favorite movies of this past year?

World War ZRT (69%) – Trailer

Sometimes, I just hate the movies.  This is from World War Z’s Wiki page: “In March 2013, it was reported that Paramount changed a scene in the film in which the characters speculate that the zombie outbreak originated in mainland China in hopes of landing a distribution deal in the country.  It was also revealed that several of the scenes shot in Budapest were dropped from the final cut in order to water down the film’s political undertones, and steer it towards a more generally friendly summer blockbuster”.

To hell with the source material, how do we get asses in seats?!  You post produce it in 3D for some reason and change the material to charm other countries and…ah hell, merica!  I don’t have high hopes for this movie, considering re-shoots and rewrites plagued production, the ending will likely be a cop-out like narration overlooking a burning NYC.  It’s a metaphor…*cough.

Monsters UniversityRT (83%) – Trailer

I enjoyed the first film, and this looks like a lot of fun.  An animated Animal House, I’ll take it.  John Goodman never hurt either, I’d watch him peel onions.

New Trailer for WORLD WAR Z Starring Brad Pitt

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

war-zBelow you can watch the new trailer for director Marc Forster’s (Quantum of Solace) zombie apocalypse film World War Z.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

The film stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Matthew Fox, James Badge Dale, and David Morse.

FYI: In May 2012, it was reported that production would return for seven weeks of additional shooting.  The following month, screenwriter Damon Lindelof was hired to rewrite the film’s third act with reshoots.  Not a good sign.

World War Z opens on June 21, 2013.

We finally have the first trailer for the zombie apocalypse drama World War Z starring Brad Pitt.  You might have heard that the adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie novel has had some setbacks with production.  The film was going to open this December, now it’s opening June of next year.  The third act was rewritten and reshot AFTER production was over.  So, leave your expectations at the door I would say.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Has A Release Date, No Director

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

tmnt

Not a big news item here, but anything TMNT get’s me in a right good mood.  Paramount Pictures has arranged its upcoming release schedule, with dates for both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and World War Z with Brad Pitt.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is still without a director, but it was hinted recently that Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) could get behind the camera to direct the Platinum Dunes feature. It is now said to be released December 25, 2013.  Could that be a filler date?  Could it be the best Christmas present of all time?  Time will tell.  Based on the characters created by Laird and Kevin Eastman, Laird said the film will remain true to the spirit of the original comic books. He has said the film may use face replacement technology, which would allow the turtles to be much more expressive.

Marc Forster’s World War Z has been delayed until June 21, 2013. The movie is an adaptation of the book by Max Brooks, which deals with the fallout of the zombie apocalypse.

FYI: Judith Hoag declined to reprise her role as April in the film’s sequels due to substantial edits of scenes involving her character.
