    Question Best new movie you've seen during the past year?

    So, over the past year what is the best big-screen film that you have seen? If you haven't seen any new films on the screen, what about the best of any films that you saw for the first time over that same period?

    What was it that grabbed you? Would you recommend it?

    I thought The Butler was outstanding. Great story based on a real guy with a lot of history.

    I enjoyed RED2 could it be because I'm an old guy?

    I liked Jack Reacher and Oblivion. I'm not a Tom C. fan but both movies were good. I'd give the edge to Oblivion.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Of all the new movies I've seen this year, I liked Pacific Rim (A-) and Star Trek Into Darkness (A) the best. Pacific Rim doesn't win any awards for character development or even character interaction, but it's a great popcorn-eatin', whack-and-smash giant robots vs. giant alien sea monsters movie. I'm a long-time Star Trek fan, and I'm mostly pleased with the reboot, with the exception of Spock's version of screaming Khaaaaaaaaaaan!!!!!!


    I also saw World War Z (B-), Iron Man 3 (B), Man of Steel (B), The Wolverine (D-), Oblivion (on DVD, C+).

    +1 for Pacific Rim. Was just a ton of fun. They did a superb job on the visuals. Anybody that missed seeing it on big screen blew it.

    Perhaps over this past year, I'd agree. Which is why I asked. I figured many folks had seen something new that was worthwhile, or at least had had a first-time viewing that was worthwhile. Either way, I get to avoid the "turds." Always a good thing.

    My friend talked several of us into going to see "The Millers". She said it was like Chevy Chase's "Vacation" movies, should be very funny.

    It wasn't. It was the stupidest movie of 2013. If it wasn't for the "F" bomb, there would have been almost no dialog. The only good thing about it is that we went to the local cheap seats theater and only spent $5.00 to see it. That was $5.00 more than it was worth.

    Lincoln. Daniel Day Lewis finally showed us the oft read about Lincoln humor. Other portrayals show Lincoln stoic & dead serious. Overall the movie was very well cast.

    My wife & I also really liked Zero Dark Thrity, so intense when I exited the theater my daughter coming out of another theater said "dad, are you allright?" I replied "No not really." Rarely does a movie affect me like that!
