The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
This was an overlong tedious movie to watch!!
Almost 20 minutes longer than The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.
It felt like it never was going to end and several times in the film, it just dragged on and dragged on; unlike The Hobbit where you didn't even know 2 hours and 40 min has gone by.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)
Beautifully filmed remake of the 1947 classic but I can't recommend it.
It's like eating a full course dinner and leaving the restaurant afterward still feeling empty and hungry!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
12 Years a Slave (2013)
A very emotionally difficult movie to watch yet it still doesn't minimize the importance of its historical value and the scope of its dramatic impact.
If this film sweeps the Academy this year, it will be very well deserved.
A Single Shot (2013)
Dark, brooding, movie about a man and the consequences of his actions.
The ominous soundtrack and the gloomy grayish filmography of a landscape devoid of colors adds to the dark mood of this violent and haunting psychological thriller.
It's a shame this film was not even anywhere on the Academy Awards' radar as Sam Rockwell turns in a great performance as a man living in the backwoods whose poverty ridden life doesn't give him many choices and opportunities and how one unexpected tragic event changes his life.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
Should had been titled The Boring Hunger Games sequel: Catching Zzzz's!
I thought the first one was bad, this is even worse!
On February 2012, I rated the first film a 0.5/5.
I will rate this stinker:
American Hustle (2013)
Not impressed by it.
David O. Russell's direction lately has been too much by the number and linear.
Jennifer Lawrence is wasted in this film.
The dialogue (albeit most of it was improvised by the actors and actresses without a script) was awful.
This is what the Academy is picking nowadays for Best Picture?
Inside Llewyn Davis is a much better film than any of the nominated Best Picture choices and yet the Academy totally passed it by.
I think the Academy succumbed once again to Political Correctness and Special Interest.
They picked a movie for Best Picture because they didn't want to offend the Gay and Lesbian community and they picked another movie for Best Picture because they didn't want to be accused of Racial Discrimination.
Then they picked Gravity for Best Picture because it was commercially popular.
Here's another movie that was snubbed by this year's Academy Awards nominations.
I've seen Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years A Slave and Captain Philips and The Wolf Of Wall Street and Gravity and American Hustle, 6 of the 10 Best Picture nominees of this year.
None of them moved me.
None of them made me shed any tears.
Not only did "Rush" moved me:
I had a few tears streaming down during several of the scenes.
So why is this movie overlooked by the Academy?
No Best Picture. No Best Director. No Best Actor.
Ron Howard is showing why he is getting better and better as a director whenever he directs a dramatic movie.
He is in the same league as Clint Eastwood now as director.
I give this film a 5/5, not only it's a perfect score, I am also rating it .25 higher than my previous rating for 12 Years A Slave and 1.25 higher than my previous ratings for Dallas Buyers Club and The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Out of the Furnace (2013)
Terrible! Absolutely Terrible!
The 2 and 1/2 minute trailer was better than the sum of the entire 2 hour movie put together.
The writers had a good idea but they just couldn't deliver with a script that just kept dragging on and on!
Furthermore, you are supposed to feel compassion for the characters and frankly me dear, after almost 1 hr into the film, I didn't give a damn anymore what, if anything, happened to any of them.
Ender's Game (2013)
I read the book and I loved it.
I think them movie falls real short and many of the characters and talented young actors and young actresses were wasted.
Just rewatched Forrest Gump for the 100th times.
After almost 20 years, Forrest Gump is still the most moving and saddest movie I'd ever seen in my entire life.
It's also #1 on my personal Top 10 Best movies list.
Why is Forrest Gump such a great film??
Found this online by accident!!
What a Riot!

The Monuments Men (2014)
This movie could had been great and instead it was a let down.
The exposition of it was just too erratic.
Look! 2 of the Monuments Men are over here! 2 of the other Monuments Men are over there.
One minute they are in Paris. Then in Belgium. Then back in France, oh wait!
I think it's Germany now!
Boy, they sure travel fast from point to point considering there is a full scale world war going on as if (except for one scene that showed it) they never ran into retreating Nazi troops during their travels across Western Europe.
It could had used better editing and a little longer running time for more concise and seamless story telling!
