Will Strong’s Round Up of 2013

Will Strong’s Round Up of 2013

Every year Phil and Will debate the years top (and bottom) films.  Here’s Will Strong’s Best & Worst for 2013.

Best Films

  1. The Hobbit – The Desolation of Smaug (awesome)
  2. Django Unchained (just brilliant)
  3. Rush (outstanding – couldn’t fault it)
  4. Olympus Has Fallen (awesome action film – took me totally by surprise at just how good this was)
  5. The Escape Plan (so much fun, great action and just fantastic entertainment)
  6. Captain Phillips (Hanks and Greengrass back on form)
  7. Thor-The Dark World (Not enough Hiddlestone but a very very good sequel with some top action)
  8. Star Trek Into Darkness (not as good as the 1st one but Cumberbach was brilliant and it was very well made and directed)
  9. World War Z (I really liked it)
  10. Gravity (Most amazing SFX in years – superbly made)

Honorary Mentions

  1. The Last Stand (great fun)
  2. White House Down ( extremely good fun)
  3. Fast and Furious 6 (glorious lunacy)
  4. Cloud Atlas (far better than expected)
  5. Les Miserables (too long but very good nonetheless)
  6. Man of Steel (should have been better but  I enjoyed it)
  7. The Dyatlov Pass Incident (surprisingly good)
  8. The Hunger Games –Catching Fire (almost made my top ten best list – very very good – if a little bit repetitive of the original)
  9. Prisoners (brilliantly acted and kept me guessing till the end)
  10. Gangster Squad (good fun and well made)

Not bad but could have been better

  1. The Wolverine (sounds odd I know but there was too much Wolverine  -it wasn’t exciting enough, too little supporting characters and was a tad too long)
  2. Iron Man 3 (yes you read that right – I said it! – just didn’t connect to this one – despite the very funny script and the hilarious Mandarin reveal)
  3. Jack Reacher (ok but too slow)
  4. Oblivion (wasted opportunity but not bad)

Worst

  1. Pacific Rim
  2. Bullet to The Head
  3. The Councillor
  4. GI Joe Retaliation
  5. A Good Day to Die Hard
  6. Mama
  7. The Evil Dead
  8. The Raven
  9. Texas Chainsaw 3D
  10. Now you see me

I also liked Star Trek, into the Darkness – albeit no one plays Khan better than Ricardo Montalban (aka Zac Powers of ‘The Colbys’)
