Top 10 Movies I Want to See in 2013

Extra

waitingtopThough this list should have worked better in January I can’t really say I was looking forward of seeing any movies throughout January to April, so the timing is actually perfect. I put them in order of my own anticipation and not the actual release dates because it seemed more interesting.

Before you continue, I must add that some of the release dates might be Estonian – I was in a hurry and didn’t have the time to double check – sorry!

It’s a bit of a long shot but I’m hoping that at least one young adult book can actually make a great movie. I’ll have The Hunger Game’s second movie pretty high in this list as well but I’m quite thrilled to see The Mortal Instruments for no apparent reason. Call me crazy but a little light entertainment is sometimes good.

Well, I mean, it has Brad Pitt and the man has done more decent movies than bad movies so I trust his judgement. Plus, The Walking Dead has made zombies awesome and I’d be glad to see them on a big screen .. with Brad Pitt. Gosh, I’m a bit obsessed with Pitt since I saw re-watched Fight Club and I’m not even sorry.

This movie isn’t something I look forward to as much as for its plot but because of its legacy. I read the book, I liked the book but I’m a bit hesitant about the movie. Still, Leo never disappoints me and I’m sure he won’t let me down this time as well.

waiting8

To my own surprise I quite enjoyed Red and I’m thrilled to see the gang back together for the second time. It has a lovely concept and it has some brilliant actors doing what they do the best – creating amazing characters. Besides, no matter what he does, Bruce is my man!

waiting7

When I saw the teaser I was quite excited and though I haven’t seen the trailer, my excitement continues to be as such. I like Jesse and the rest of the cast. Besides, it looks like a fun crime movie but who knows what happens – I hope it all turns out well and I’ll end up liking it when the time comes. Fingers crossed.

This may or may not be something I’m waiting for only because Dylan O’Brien is in it. I’m not saying it is because of him or it isn’t because of him. But I’m pretty sure you know that I have a soft spot for him. Plus, he is sporting some amazing glasses in this movie and I’m pretty much drooling over him at this point. I’m sorry but I’m allowing myself one guilty pleasure and may The Internship be that guilt.

waiting5

It’s no secret that I liked the first adaption of this young adult book and I’m sure I’ll like the second one as well. I’m a big fan of Lawrence and since the second book was also great (the third will be a disappointment) it allows a lot of great things to take place in this second installment.

waiting4

Although Sofia Coppola is a hit or a miss for me, The Bling Ring looks promising. I must say, a big portion of that promise is most likely Emma Watson but I’m not even sorry. That being said, I’m sure I’ll end up loving it or being indifferent with it, which is what I do with Coppola’s movies. She just has that effect on me – or in some cases, does not effect me at all. We’ll see Coppola, we’ll see!

waiting3

Not going to lie, I’m super thrilled about this one! I mean, I can’t even hide my excitement and I’m not even sorry for ranking this one so high. I’m rarely excited about comedies, last time I was this pumped up was right after seeing Easy A’s trailer, so it was pretty long time ago. I can’t say if I’ll love it as much as I’m loving it now but since it has so many names, good names and big names, I can’t say I’ll hate it. Maybe I’ll be disappointed because I’ve hyped it up for myself but I’ll have to remember to be a bit drunk when I see it – then I’ll love it for sure.

waiting2

I am SO SO SO SO EXCITED to see the new Star Trek and I can’t even.. I just can’t. As you can see the images are totally not stills and the reason is because I have no idea what will take place in this movie. I haven’t read anything about it, I haven’t seen the trailer (only heard the audio in the cinema) and basically been living in my own “I will have no idea what will happen” bubble and I will most likely totally freak out about everything and everybody. And that long sentence pretty much says it all – too excited to end sentences in a normal-sentence-way or even make normal sentences. I’m going to stop typing now. SO EXCITED!

        I don’t know… I’d have to see a trailer first I think.
        There’s David O Russel’s movie coming out this year too I think.. I’m really excited for that one.

    I’m also pretty excited about The Bling Ring, Catching Fire, & Now You See Me. On the fence about The Great Gatsby as I loved Romeo + Juliet but was lukewarm about Moulin Rouge. But I am insanely excited for This Is The End!! That has to be the movie this year that I cannot wait to see the most. There’s other movies that I am really interested in seeing but none have reached End’s level of excitement.

      I know right? I mean, for me it’s Star Trek but I’m a huge fan of the previous one so, I guess it’s more about that kind of anticipation. But This Is the End looks so so so promising and I just hope my excitement won’t make it less amazing.

    I feel there are some here that might fall into guilty pleasure territory! I’m more looking forward to Man of Steel than Star Trek at the moment but Cumberbatch does like pretty awesome as the villain. Nice list ๐Ÿ™‚

    Definitely excited for Catching Fire and The Bling Ring. Sophia is usually a hit or a miss with me as well, more misses than hits unfortunately, but this oddball plot with Emma Watson looks like it’ll work!

    And I a party extra on set for This is the End. Was supposed to film for four days, but I only showed up for one hah. Believe me…it’s going to be awesome. They do a lot of adlibbing off of a lose script, and they’re all completely hilarious! Jay Baruchel <3 <3

            I thought I would be crazed about the idea as well, but I completely understood celebrities who suffer from “exhaustion” …because I felt 100% wiped out from the day. A lot of the extras there were also snooty and acted like they were on the verge of being discovered, which I wasn’t there for…so that was also offsetting. But it was still a cool experience!

            Damn- second time writing this comment as I accidentally deleted it. Man.
            I saw LOTR documentary where this casting lady was talking about finding extras who won’t complain and stuff. Since one guy had been up for 4 days with 4hours of sleep or something. So I guess it’s a thing – snooty extras.
            I’d be excited to be there though, but this is me saying that while I’m sitting at home being lazy.

            It was definitely a great experience…getting to see how everything is produced and put together. I was surprised how flexible they were with the script. The director would cut, then tell Franco or Rogen to talk more about ‘this or that’ …so the script was largely their own, which makes them all genuinely hilarious.

            Well I think they are very improvising people in general and since it’s kinda his movie (Rogen directed and wrote as well) and he gets along with Franco – I assume they had lots of fun on the set!
            Now I’m even more excited! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Now You See Me and World War Z are on my list (even if I’m not the biggest fan of zombies), so excited for those! I’m also thinking of seeing Red 2 because I enjoyed the first one, and The Great Gatsby because of Leo. I hope they don’t disappoint!

      Some movies are just exciting because of the actors but luckily, I’m a fan of zombies, so World War Z has more reasons for me to see it. Let’s hope all these movies turn out well!

    I didn’t like Star Trek the show so I wrote the film off. And then went to cinema and saw the trailer and started squealing (got weird looks, too). So I absolutely agree!

    Sofia Coppola is my effing goddess and I really want to see The Bling Ring, too. Actually I really want to all of them โ€“ of the ones I know. I think I haven’t even seen RED and The Internship is a new name for me but I trust your judgement and will definitely have a look at all.

    And I love your new list graphics. Must be a bitch to make but look very, very good.

      I have no idea about the Star Trek show but I loved the movie.
      The Internship might not be as good but I love Teen Wolf’s Stiles so, I must see all of his movies!

      And the graphics aren’t that bad.. just time consuming.

    Wow I haven’t even heard of some of those! I’m definitely looking forward to The Bling Ring, Coppola has such a great style and Emma Watson looks awesome in that trailer and all the pictures.

      Watson indeed looks good and well, hopefully this would be a hit rather than a miss for me in terms of Coppola. I kind of wish it turns out good!

        I’m not a fan of the recent superhero movies but this one blew me away, it’s very different. I can see comic fans being pissed off at what Shane Black has done but I loved it. It’s basically The Last Boy Scout with armour. My review will be up on Wednesday, under strict orders from Disney not to review it before then.
