The top ten movies to look forward to in 2013

Now that 2012 is behind us, it’s time to look forward to the great movies we can expect in 2013. Last year was a good mix of fun blockbusters and smaller, quality dramas and 2013 promises more of the same. And yes, I’m combining like-movies and yes, this is technically more than ten movies. But you get the idea. Here are the top ten movies to look forward to in 2013.

Gangster Squad Review, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

10. GANGSTER SQUAD/WORLD WAR Z – I combined these because these made my 2012 most anticipated movies list, but were both pushed back, albeit for two very different reasons. I’m still excited about them, but that excitement has waned since I’ve been waiting over a year. However, the first trailer for WORLD WAR Z reminded me why I had it on my 2012 list and GANGSTER SQUAD still looks like a fun movie, even if it’s not the Oscar material I thought it might be last year.

9. ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES – The first Anchorman has grown on me since its original release and with all of the comedians involved having grown over the years, I think they’ll be able to top what they did the first time. America loves Ron Burgundy; he’s kind of a big deal.

Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 3

8. THOR: THE DARK WORLDS/IRON MAN 3/THE WOLVERINE – The start of “Phase 2” for Marvel begins with IRON MAN 3. All of the Marvel films are enjoyable and I consider these guaranteed to be a good time. As for THE WOLVERINE, I have hopes that this will be what X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE should have been. I like the idea of a darker, more adult Wolverine hitting the big screen.

7. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS – I was never really that big of a fan of Star Trek growing up, but J.J. Arams made a believer out of me with his reboot. The first trailer for the sequel looks dark and sophisticated, two things the Star Trek franchise needs. I like all the actors in their respective roles and I think the Star Trek universe has unlimited potential.

Matt Damon in Elysium

6. ELYSIUM – DISTRICT 9 was a great film, so I’m anxious to see what Neill Blomkamp can do with more money and an A-list cast, led by Matt Damon. This one might get a little preachy, but Blomkamp has proven he can combine sci-fi and political commentary, so it has me excited.
