What I’m Looking Forward to For The Rest of The Year

I’m sure I’m not the only one who believes 2013 has been pretty mediocre for film thus far.  With a couple of exceptions like Before MidnightThe World’s EndTo The Wonder, and Mud, the year has been for me mostly disappointments and misses.

Fortunately, the next few months seem very promising.  The films that I’m most interested in seeing are the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf on Wall Street (which hopefully, despite some editing issues, come out this year), Asghar Farhadi’s The Past, Spike Jonze’s Her, Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, and Alexander Payne’s Nebraska.  I’ll hopefully see all of these movies by the year’s end (I’m already planning to catch Gravity this weekend), and hopefully 2013 will turn around.

But what are you interested in seeing?


  1. The end to the year definitely promises to be an improvement over the rest of it. I’m looking forward to Gravity and 12 Years a Slave (if that’s this year over here) the most.

    • Nice picks! Both movies I’m eager to see.

  2. For me, I want to see Gravity but am still split on 3D/2D viewing options for the first viewing. Saving Mister Banks doesn’t look that bad. Ender’s Game looks intriguing.

    • Nice picks! I’m going to opt for the 3D version of Gravity since I’m sure Cuaron will deliver.

  3. I didn’t have as many issues with the first half but then I only saw like 4 movies. LOL! I’m hoping the end of the year will get me to the theatre a tad more. I want to see Gravity (which won’t happen since its only showing dubbed Quebec French near my place). I do look forward to Hunger Games 2, Ender’s Game, Haunter (hopefully it’ll show near me), Thor 2 seems pretty good too and well, I think Frozen is going to come out in November…I need to double check that 🙂

    • Nice picks!

  4. Oldboy & Anchorman 2 🙂

    • Nice picks! I’m hoping Oldboy would give Spike Lee a comeback.

  5. This year has been disappointing thus far, but already since the end of the summer it’s began to pick up quite a bit, so I’m a bit hopeful for the remainder of the year.

    • Thanks! I’m hopeful as well.

  6. I agree with you. 2013 has been a year of disappointments.

    I too look forward to The Wolf on Wall Street and Gravity.


    • Thanks! The Wolf on Wall Street and Gravity are two of my most anticipated as well.

  7. From the movies not listed I’m mainly looking forward to The Counselor, after that probably The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Captain Phillips.

    • Thanks for the comment. The Counselor is one I’m hoping will be great.

  8. I’m with you that 2013 has been very weak for movies. The problem is that there’s not much I’m looking forward to either, other than Gravity. Oh well….

    • Thanks for the comment. 2013 has been pretty mediocre so far, but I’m hoping the rest of the year will be much better. Gravity looks great and I’ve heard unanimous praise for it.

  9. Yep, 2013 has been a bit disappointing so far. Then again, it usually takes until the last couple months for the best stuff to start rolling in. I’m looking forward to catching most of the films you mentioned, especially Gravity which I will be seeing this weekend.

    • Thanks for the comment. There’s definitely a lot of promise in some upcoming films. Everyone I’ve talked to has loved Gravity so I’m excited in seeing it.

  10. I think Wolf of Wall Street has been pushed to 2014 :/ I’m definitely looking forward to 12 Years a Slave but I don’t think anything will top Gravity for me.

    • Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I heard that Wolf on Wall Street might be pushed back. Hope that if it does it’s for a better result.

      I agree, I’m not sure if anything could top Gravity. Best of 2013 by a long shot for me.
