The new Hobbit movie was pretty average in my opinion, I've seen a number of films this year I enjoyed more.

i have to throw American Hustle in there.. movie was great

#7 Posted by ferrari2001 (17002 posts) -

I'm gonna go ahead and claim that either The Wolf of Wall Street or American Hustle are going to be the best films of 2013, even though I haven't seen either yet. The worst definitely goes to After Earth.

Best Foreign film: Secrets of the tribe, a Brazilian documentary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secrets_of_the_Tribe

Worst foreign film: Wadjda A stupid film about a girl who wins a koran reciting contest to win enough money to buy a bycycle. It's as by the numbers as a film like this gets, but it's politicaly acurate so it gets an unnesisary amount of praise.

Best American Film: 12 years a slave. A great way of showing just how much violence you can shove into a mainstream movie, under the guise of it being historicaly accurate.

Worst American Film: Scary Movie 5 (Is this even a contest)

Best: Prisoners

Worst: The Call

#10 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26351 posts) -

Still need to see a few ('Her', 'The Wolf of Wall Street') but at the moment I'd say 'Before Midnight' is the best and 'A Good Day To Die Hard' is easily the worst.

#11 Posted by ferrari2001 (17002 posts) -

Just saw American Hustle, definitely the best film I've seen this year.

A Haunted House was easily the worst movie I've seen this year. I watched it because I was bored and had to skip certain parts because they were so terrible.

Honestly I have no idea what the best movie I've seen would be. I can't remember any of the movies I saw at the beginning of the year, which is pretty sad. Since I went to college I have only seen one movie in theaters, and while I enjoyed it I wouldn't call it the best movie of the year.

#13 Posted by iwilson1296 (2214 posts) -

for me the best i remember was Dredd with the worst being After Earth

#14 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (2517 posts) -

Best: Catching Fire

Worst: Man of Steel

Of what I have seen:

Best: Hobbit 2 or The Conjuring. The Hobbit was such a freaking phenomenal movie that actually EXCEEDED my expectations and managed to be up there with the original LoTR trilogy in terms of quality. The Cojuring also gets a nod considering it is by FAR the best horror movie I have ever seen and it managed to scare me way more than any movie I have ever seen which is a feat considering my love for the horror genre.

Worst: Hate to say it but The Worlds End gets this for me. I have avoided seeing the universally panned movies, so I got to go with this movie. It was VERY disappointingly average for me. The movie was just completely unremarkable to me and yet I had been looking forward to it very much.

Really am not too interested in the slew of award-show-fodder movies coming out this month. Wolf of Wall Street looks interesting, but American Hustle does not. Really would only care about seeing Jennifer Lawrence being sexy in that movie as the preview suggests she might.

The best film so FAR has been American Hustle. Now, The Wolf of Wall Street isn't out quite yet so I can't make an official decision yet. But American Hustle was masterful.

Worst. Hm.

White House Down.

This is the only film I have seen so far this year, which has received quite a bit of critical praise, that I personally can't see what people find so great about it, beside the performances.

#20 Posted by ChiefvsGordon (1085 posts) -

the worst movie I seen this year was Grown Ups 2. My gf loved the first movie, I hated the first movie. she dragged me along to watch this piece of garbage. do not waste your time, it is one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life.

It's a David O. Russell film so it's bound to be overrated.

Best: 12 Years A Slave, Inside Llewyn Davis, Her, Nebraska
Worst: Only God Forgives, Evil Dead

I REALLY liked 'Silver Lining Playbook', but just found everything in 'American Hustle' to be SO hollow. Could not have cared less about the characters or the outcome of the story...which is pretty damn important in a film about an important con job.

Also, 'Inside Llewyn Davis' was SO damn good.

worst probably goes to Lone Ranger

I am interested in actually good movies, not these overrated movies specifically made to try and get the award show committees to jerk themselves over.

How do you know they're overrated if you didn't see them?

You do realize that we get the same slew of movies every year at this time, right? It's always these dramas specifically designed to go after awards and the committees will predictably praise them to high heaven as if the movies are something totally new and unique.

The next couple months are going to be the bad drought now where the studios shove their worst movies so these next couple months are going to be the time to save money and avoid the theater unless you need to catch up on a movie or two.

@Aljosa23: same way that f2001 knew that American hustle was going to be among the best he's seen this year before seeing it

#28 Posted by PSP107 (11924 posts) -

Movies been awful since 2000.

#29 Posted by dave123321 (34152 posts) -

Basically some people let expectations cloud their judgement

So movies actually made for adults end up getting all the awards attention OH THE HUMANITY!

The quality of movies(and tv) was better in the 90's.

You didn't answer my question, instead you just went off some tangent that has nothing to do with anything. Yes, studios always keep their best movies in time for the holidays and award season, so fvcking what? The video game industry does the same shit, they release their best and most hyped games around the holiday season... because that's the time when people most spend money.

I'll ask you again: how do you know they're overrated if you didn't see them? I'd prefer an actual response rather than nerd rage because your favourite film this year isn't nominated for anything.

Doesn't aljosa also pull the oscar bait card

#37 Posted by dave123321 (34152 posts) -

Do game people release stuff around the holidYs. Guessing from October till December. I can see that. Console releases most definitely.

No? I never use that term.

All films are technically "Oscar bait". Everyone makes films with the hope of winning awards and what not. Singling out a few is just shit critique.

Not going to bother fixing up the quotes since I can't

[QUOTE="Aljosa23"]

[QUOTE="dave123321"]Unlike Aljosa, I liked beasts of the southern wild. But he also overpraises skyfall, so I don't know what to think.

Aljosa

I don't overpraise anything. And in terms of Beasts of the Southern Wild, that film's shaky cam and Oscar-baity story tricked everyone. At least the little girl was good.

SaintLeonidas

The term 'Oscar bait' has become more cliche than any film, Oscar nominated or not, can ever be at this point.

Dharma

The term "Oscar bait" really doesn't have any meaning anymore. People only say it to films or performances they don't like and try to belittle it by making it seem like it's only purpose was to gather awards.

Man you went back a year for that lol.

That movie is shit but I didn't say it was Oscar bait. Just had a very schmaltzy story.

#44 Posted by dave123321 (34152 posts) -

Oh guess I was wrong about that then.

Thought it seems like the other two quoties were also confused

#45 Posted by AvatarMan96 (7324 posts) -

Best: Man of Steel

Worst: The Last Exorcism Part II
