From 'The Hunger Games' to 'Mr. Banks': 13 best movies of 2013 The biggest surprise of 2013 is just how great the movies turned out to be in the second half of the year. This summer saw one of the weakest seasons ever: sequel and remake after sequel and remake bogged down the multiplexes with lackluster and unoriginal content, although sprinkled throughout were a handful of excellent films like “The Spectacular Now,” “Enough Said,” and “The Great Gatsby." But the latter half of the year was certainly an eye-opener for high quality film. Almost every week saw the release of something superb, from “American Hustle” to “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” to “Captain Phillips.” In retrospect 2013 turned out to be a fantastic year for movies.

Nerd Blerp - 10 Great Horror Films You've Never Seen Being a fan of all things horror, I thought it high-time I showed some love for the genre on this site. Horror films are great because they appeal to our most base natures, but also because they are allowed to be as loopy and imaginative as they want...well, at lest they used to be. These days, imagination has been replaced by lots of gore and cheap 'jump-out-of-your-seat' shocks. Horror films no longer follow you home and haunt your dreams in the stillness of the night. So, here are ten great horror films that you've never seen before (I hope). They will provide you with a much needed antidote to the teeny-bopper and remake hell that we are stuck in today. Best Movies (of All-Time) The best movies evoke tears, laughter, terror, reminiscence, and/or mystery in a truly personal way. Anything less (AKA, around 98% of all movies) serves no purpose other than to shove mindless, forgettable fodder in our face and line Hollywood’s pockets (Be afraid Michael Bay, be VERY afraid). This is that other, sacred 2%—the Holy Grail of cinema. Note: “Memorable Moments” may contain spoilers. 100. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Movies That Inspire Travel - My Jan 2013 Picks In addiction to being a travel addict with an ever nomadic heart and soul, I also happen to be a big movie and documentary fanatic. While I do enjoy North America film, I tend to be more attracted to international cinema. I like movies that take me places and not only showcase the landscape through beautiful cinematography but also highlight social and cultures issues of a particular location. These movies ignite the wanderlust in me. 15 Amazing Animated Short films We all love short animated films, but creating short film is very hard task. Putting whole story in 5 to 10 minutes is not easy. Can you imagine? 30 Movies That Define Cool Nothing says cool like a good guy movie.

We’ve compiled a list of 30 cool movies that should be on every guy’s must-see list this summer.

Cult Films Cult Films have limited but very special appeal. Cult films are usually strange, quirky, offbeat, eccentric, oddball, or surreal, with outrageous, weird, unique and cartoony characters or plots, and garish sets. They are often considered controversial because they step outside standard narrative and technical conventions. They can be very stylized, and they are often flawed or unusual in some striking way. Most cult films cut across many film genres (science fiction, horror, melodrama, etc.), although some film genres are also more prone to being cultish, such as the horror or sci-fi genres. Teen comedies are also more often rated as cult films, such as American Graffiti (1973), (National Lampoon's) Animal House (1978), Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), and Dazed and Confused (1993), with quotable lines of dialogue, and memorable characters and scenes.

GritFX T-Shirts Magazine - StumbleUpon Personally, I thought the first year of the new decade to be rather lacklustre as far as cinema goes. The sheer volume of reckless, morally inept comedies and action films was overwhelming. Fellow author Adam Fay said it best last year when, in his piece on Christopher Nolan’s Inception stated, “While there is no doubt that this is a standout film, the over-the-top gushing of praise strikes me to be less about the strength of the actual film and more about the pitiful films it shares multiplex space with.” 25 Great Psychological Thrillers That Are Worth Your Time Described as a story which emphasizes the psychology of its characters and their unstable emotional states, the following films are benchmarks for what a successful psychological thriller should aspire to be. Instead of displaying legions of gore and violence, their main objective is to play with your mind. To leave it up to you to construct the tension of what you have just witnessed. As the great perplexer David Lynch once said: “when you are spoon-fed a film, more people instantly know what it is.
