From Here To 2014…

There are only three months left in 2013, and that means it’s Oscar Season!!  Ugh…

Actually, it turns out that hiding out amongst the Oscar-bait films (yawn), there are actually a few movies coming out that promise to kick the ass end of 2013 in the ass.  Here are the top ten movies I’m looking forward to between now and the end of the year…

Image

Gravity (10/4) – Trapped floating through space.  Surrounded by nothingness.  Low on oxygen.  Sounds like a thin premise for a whole feature-length film, but everything I’ve seen from it looks riveting.

Image

Machete Kills (10/11) – Machete was one of the most ridiculous, silly, implausible movies in recent memory.  This sequel looks every bit as ridiculous, silly, and implausible.  Thank heavens!

Image

The Escape Plan (10/18) – Schwarzenegger and Sly team up to beat, bash, and blast their way out of prison.  Be still, my old-school action flick-loving heart!

Image

Thor: The Dark World (11/8) – Chris Hemsworth picks up Thor’s hammer again and proceeds to bash his way through a new batch of baddies.  Be on the look-out for Avengers tie-ins.

Image

Nebraska (11/15) – A dad wins a sweepstakes and drags his son cross-country to collect the booty.  Sounds too off-the-wall for me not to love it.

Image

Oldboy (11/27) – Morbidly curious about this one, chiefly because I can’t see how they can put the original ending in front of American audiences.

Image

 The Monuments Men (12/18) – George Clooney and Matt Damon lead an excellent cast on a mission to steal a bunch of irreplaceable art from the Nazis.  My interest is piqued.

Image

47 Ronin (12/25) – This Keanu Reeves flick looks like it’ll either be awesome or a complete mess.  Either way, it should be a pretty fascinating watch.

Image

Grudge Match (12/25) – De Niro and Sly play boxers retired boxing rivals whose distaste for each other leads to one final match.  What’s not to like?

Image

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (12/25) – Yeah, it’s a remake.  Yeah it’s Ben Stiller.  Yeah, it kinda looks like a “feel-good” movie.  It also looks like it could be pretty good.

So, that’s what I’m looking forward to.  What movies make your list?
