This is my list of the Top Ten Films released in the year 2013. I have reviewed each one of them or a review is pending and consider them to be all worthy of their position. If you notice any films that you loved and that are not on the list then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply didn’t see it (there’s a lot of those). I will also be releasing my worst films of the year and what I thought were the best/worst sci-fi films of the year. Lastly I will post my most anticipated films of this current year 2014, ohhh exciting.
Get out the road maps because those satnavs are useless now. Yeah that’s right Tim finally saw Gravity, about bloody time! Wanted to see this for ages but for various reasons had to wait nearly a month. The film is very powerful and is visually beautiful with equally impressive character development. The 3D is used in a way that is extremely rare in most films, It’s actually used. Gravity uses no gravity to actually for once justify 3D as a cinema format, stuff floating around and what have you. Other than the visuals the other great aspect is the character development from Sandra Bullock, seeing her survive the ordeal this story portrays is a fascinating character study. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“How about you Ryan, you have anybody down there, looking up in the sky waiting for you to come home?”
I like this trailer it’s got a good realistic feel to it. The visuals look great and it’s an intriguing idea, truly scary because they are alone and if they lose their grip they are gone forever. When I first watched this trailer I thought it was a nightmare I had once (I have nerdy dreams) and obviously to me feels frightening. There’s a scene that got to me, just got chills when that astronaut floats away into the darkness. The director of Children of Men is behind this one and whilst that film isn’t my favourite the concepts where fantastic. The cast is really small for a big budget film, with a grand total of two. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will be our brave space walkers. My prediction is that one dies and one cries, mwahahahaha!
