40 Must See Films of 2013 Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive could very well be my favorite film of 2011. The stripped down style and elegant atmosphere made what would normally be just another pulp story into something mythic and new. That’s why I was ecstatic to hear that Refn and leading man Ryan Gosling would be re-teaming in Only God Forgives, an almost spiritual sequel to Drive. From what’s been released, the plot “follows Julian, who runs a Thai boxing club as a front organization for his family’s drug smuggling operation, as he is forced by his mother Jenna to find and kill the individual responsible for his brother’s recent death.” Refn has said that the filmmaking style present in Drive is very much continued in Only God Forgives, giving the graphic story an almost fairy tale quality. The fact that this is being made gives me all the more reason to be excited for next year in film.

77 Science Fiction and Fantasy Movies to Watch Out For in 2013 EVIL DEAD: seriously? Yet another movie that doesn't need to be remade. RISE OF AN EMPIRE: alas, King Xerxes did not got his ass kicked by the Spartans. At best, the Spartans bought the rest of the Greek forces time to marshal and arrive by sacrificing themselves to the vastly larger Persian forces at the narrow pass at Thermopylae, so named for its hot sulphur springs. I barely remember what happened in 300. I know that in real life, the Spartans got massacred and just bought a little time for the Greek forces to arrive.
