Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve gives me a chance to look back on 2013 as a whole and with that glance 2013 was strong for television and film.  This year Breaking Bad concluded with a perfect run of episodes, Richard Linklater’s Jesse and Celine trilogy ended with a bang, John Oliver successfully helmed The Daily Show during Jon Stewart’s hiatus, Joel and Ethan Coen made one of their best movies with Inside Llewyn Davis, Netflix became the next big thing in television industry, and Martin Scorsese returned to his roots in The Wolf of Wall Street.  And that’s only just scratching the surface.  Sure there were misfires (the disastrous final season of Dexter and A Good Day To Die Hard being two prime examples), but the last 365 days have been exceptional for both the big and small screen.

Closing this post, I’d like to thank my readers.  I started Cinematic in mid-2011 with little intention to just talk about film and over the past two and a half years this site has grown much bigger than I imagined.  I’m hoping for big plans in 2014 (I’ll be writing up a top 10 list of 2013 in February or March and hope to re-continue features like “A Reconsideration”) and I’m certain that my blog will keep growing.


  1. Well done, ckckred. Happy New Year to you, too.

  7. Happy New Year to you! Yeah, A Good Day To Die Hard was awful but overall I think it’s been a great year at the movies!

    • Thanks! In the last month or two, 2013 has really rebounded. I’ve already seen plenty of great movies this year and I still need to watch Her, The Great Beauty, and Blue is the Warmest Color.

  8. Happy New Year man, all the best for 2014.

  9. “I’ll be writing up a top 10 list of 2013 in February or March..”

    But I can’t wait that long! LOL

    I just wanted to say thank you for all the comments you leave on my blog. I’ve enjoyed all your insights this past year and look forward to talking with you more about film in 2014.

    Happy New Year ckckred!!

    • Thanks! There’s still some movies I need to catch in theaters like Her, The Past, and The Great Beauty as well as some that already exited the cinema like Blue is the Warmest Color, though I hope to watch soon. I’ve always enjoyed reading your reviews as well.

  10. Happy New Year to you as well! Here’s to an even better 2014.
