Releases 2013

2013 is turning out to be a great year for hollywood:). With movies like Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 having already broken many box office records,2013 still has a lot to offer with movies like The Hobbit 2, Thor 2, The Wolf of Wall Street and Elysium.This is my first post on 2013 movies i liked,i will keep on adding new posts as and when i watch some good 2013 movies:). Lets begin with some 2013 movies i have seen and liked so far:). 

Side Effects
Side Effects is one of the best movies i have seen this year so far:). Its a well made medical thriller. Here, a young woman's world unravels when a drug prescribed by her psychiatrist has unexpected side effects.The movie mainly works because of superb direction by Steven Soderbergh:), who previously has given us movies like Contagion and the Oceans series.Also all the actors have done a good job:). Overall, Side Effects is a very good thriller which manages to keep you in your seats throughout:).

Genre:- Drama, Thriller.
Director:- Steven Soderbergh.
Stars:- Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Bore Meter:- Starts off a little slow, but once the main plot begins, keeps you in your toes throughout:).
My Rating:-

Snitch is a well made thriller based on a true story:). Here, a father goes undercover for the DEA in order to free his son who was imprisoned after being set up in drug deal.The movie is engaging throughout and makes you feel for the characters.This is not a typical Dwayne Johnson film which have cars blowing up and gun fights for no reason.This is the first time I have actually seen Dwayne Johnson giving a performance:). Overall, Snitch is a very well made engaging thriller that you should surely watch:).

Genre:- Thriller.
Director:- Ric Roman Waugh.
Stars:- Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies is a well made romantic comedy that reminds you of the twilight movies but much better:). In this movie, after R (a highly unusual zombie) saves Julie from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world.It mainly works because of its smart writing and its interesting twist to the zombie genre:). Overall, Warm Bodies is a good fun movie that is definitely worth a watch:).

Genre:- Comedy, Romance.
Director:-  Jonathan Levine.
Stars:- Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored. It's a good fun film:).

Oz The Great and Powerful 
Oz The Great and Powerful is based on the Oz novels, and also pays homage to the 1939 MGM  film The Wizard of Oz.Here, a small-time magician is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches. The main plus point of the movie is its visual effects. The land of Oz is superbly shown and looks breathtaking:). Performances by all the actors are good as well:). Overall, Oz The Great and Powerful is a good one time watch blockbuster:).

Genre:- Adventure, Fantasy.
Director:- Sam Raimi.
Stars:- James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has great visual effects:).
My Rating:- 

The Last Stand
The Last Stand is a good popcorn entertainer:). Here, the leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff.This movie is a good one time watch entertainer:). Do watch it especially if you are a Schwarzenegger fan:).

Genre:- Action.

Stars:- Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored. Has decent pace:).

  1. Wow, lotsa good movies you have suggested. Got to watch them all.

  2. good list!! :) will have to watch them!

  3. Great list bro. Enjoyed the stunning visual effects of the Oz.. The Last Stand was another Arnie mindless action. :D But keeps you entertained till the very end (although he's a bit old now).. Warm Bodies was a breath of fresh air with its weird plot.. but it was executed well. Although its ending was a bit off, quite unbelievable. Side Effects was a very good thriller with a very good twist ending. A movie to be remembered for a long time to come (just like The Sixth Sense)..

    And finally, The Rock gave a solid performance for the first time in his Hollywood career. Would like to see more of him in the future in such meaningful roles. All in all, another good list. \m/ Keep 'em coming bro. \m/

  4. @Kails: Thanks da:). Do watch them all:).

  5. @Kram: Thanks:). Do watch:).
