10 of The Best Movies of 2013
Sure, we all know Man of Steel was a great comeback for Superman, Catching Fire was even better than The Hunger Games, and 12 Years a Slave will definitely see some Oscars. So I am pretty sure I don’t need to point out the obvious. That’s why I picked a few titles that might have been neglected this year, and a few that have been big surprises.
***Please Click on the Title of the Movie to see my review of it!***
A teenage boy has to go on a vacation with his mother and her new boyfriend and his daughter. Feeling neglected by his mother, who seems to still trying to find herself, he starts working at a public pool and befriends the owner, who shows more interest in him than his mother or her boyfriend.
I think it is hard to find a movie starring Toni Collette that is actually bad, and The Way Way Back doesn’t suck either. I would even take it a step further and call it one of the best coming-of-age movies that have been released within the last few years. The actors show a lot of commitment and it isn’t hard to relate the main characters.
Ethan wants nothing more but to escape from a small in South Carolina. When he meets the quiet and mysterious Lena, he instantly knows that she is the girl he has been dreaming about for quite a while. They fall in love with each other. But Lena has a secret that might not allow them to stay together. Is their love doomed?
This was the only Young Adult Novel – adaptation besides The Hunger Games that I actually enjoyed. It had committed and talented actors, a very complex and interesting storyline, and great character development. I honestly didn’t want it to end, and I was looking forward to seeing the next part. Unfortunately it didn’t do too well at the box office. So there won’t be a second adaptation. 😦
What do you think? Do You agree? Well, I already know one of my dear blogger friends wouldn’t agree with Trance, I am talking to you Abbi 😀 But that’s why I love blogging: There are so many interesting opinions out there, and this is a way to get to know a few.
So, please share your thoughts with me.
