Happy 2013 to my three readers! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to start blogging again. So here I am. These are the movies I can’t wait for in 2013, in no particular order. And since three star Baby Goose himself, there’s no need for any six degrees here.
Only God Forgives
Pros: Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling
Cons: Will it be too violent for mainstream audiences?
Star Trek Into Darkness
Pros: I have a crush on the entire cast, benefits from a great predecessor
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Pros: It’s the weakest book in the series
Cons: I still don’t buy Sam Claflin as Finnick, Francis Lawrence steps in for Gary Ross
Girl Most Likely
Pros: Kristen Wiig and Darren Criss
Cons: The fact that it hasn’t been released yet
The Place Beyond the Pines
Pros: Gosling and Derek Cianfrance rekindle their bromance
Cons: The trailer incorrectly sells it as Drive 2
Pros: A killer premise, Alfonso Cuarón
Cons: It’s been on the shelf for a while
The To-Do List
Pros: A buzzy script, that cast (Rachel Bilson!)
Cons: It might be a little too raunchy for its own good
Man of Steel
Pros: Fantastic, chill-inducing trailers
Cons: Zack Snyder
Pros: The cast yay!
Cons: An unfortunate release date
Pros: Jason Reitman gets dramatic
Cons: It might be a little too grim
Pros: Cormac McCarthy‘s first screenplay
Cons: Is the cast too flashy?
White House Down
Pros: Channing Tatum saving the world, Jamie Foxx riffing on Obama
Cons: “Directed by Roland Emmerich,” second White House invasion-themed movie of the year
The Wolf of Wall Street
Pros: Leonardo DiCaprio and Jean Dujardin, 80s clothes
Cons: 80s clothes
One Direction Concert Movie
Pros: One Direction’s irresistibly catchy music!
Cons: Concert movie fatigue?

I am eagerly awaiting the new Star Trek movie too and, like you, I have to admit I have a crush on virtually everyone in that movie…I might even have to bring a heavy coat to put across my lap to avoid a faux pas.
