2013 Mid Term Report …

popcorn 2013

I am pretty sure that I have seen more than 25 first-run films at this point of the year but for whatever reason, that is the number that sticks in my head. Many of the films I have listed you may not have even heard of; I hope some of these titles are illuminating. In addition, some movies presented have been reviewed in this space, while others did not receive the full ILC treatment.

For the purposes of my recap, I grouping these 25 films according to how strongly I liked/disliked it. Pay no attention to the order; the movies are listed and categorized as I recalled them.



Love these movies! Definitely the cream of the crop for the Class of 2013.

  1. Man of Steel
  2. Much Ado About Nothing
  3. Central Park Five (2012)
  4. Zero Dark Thirty (2012)
  5. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
  6. The Sapphires
  7. Teenage
  8. I’ve Got Something to Tell You
  9. Elaine Strich: Just Shoot Me!

  12. Twenty Feet From Stardom
  13. Frances Ha
  14. 42
  15. Star Trek Into Darkness
