    Post here: your favorite movies of this year.

    Best: Man of Steel. This was not a particularly good year for movies, in my eyes. I would call Man of Steel good, but not outstanding. This one wins by default.

    Honorable Mention: Star Trek.


    Worst: Pain and Gain. This movie is a vacuous waste of everything. I've never left a theater feeling worse, except for the time that the kid behind me threw up in the floor, and it rolled down to my aisle when I was 8 and watching Dunston Checks In. Marketed it as a kind of dark comedy.. and it was just plain crap. These main characters are the least likeable in history. This is based off a true story of 90s murders.

    Honorable Mention: This Is The End.

    Surprisingly, yet another Bay movie.

    He's good for a decent movie every 10th one, or so...

    Pain and Gain did suck, such a let down. Trailers looked great, then I saw it and meh. :boo:

    My favorite of 2013 was probably Gravity.

    I haven't seen many, but I've seen some of the best...

    1. 12 Years a Slave
    2. Prisoners
    3. Gravity
    4. This is the End

    I've seen some others, but I'm drawing a blank. I still want to see Captain Phillips and American Hustle as well.

    Prisoners was excellent

    Man of Steel was one of my favorites. So was Thor 2.

    The Place Beyond the Pines

    "Her" is amazing. Oscar stuff.

    The Butler

    Gravity was alright.


    Haven't seen 12 Years a Slave but want to.

    1. Star Trek: Into Darkness
    2. Don Jon
    3. This is the End

    Worst was without a doubt Catching Fire.

    Want to see American Hustle, but I hate Jennifer Lawrence, so I'm conflicted. Also want to see Gravity.
