Superhero, fantasy and animation have been an annual prevalence. Live action and dystopian have steamed up in the past two years. Horror has become an enigma now. 2013 has witnessed yet another furore amongst the audiences. The critics were again there but the top ten films of the year will always belong to the people despite their rants. Presenting these movies which you will surely watch again and again
10. The Conjuring
James Wan’s The Conjuring created a worldwide paranormal hysteria for its incredible story and screenplay. The true story adaptation saw a family paralyse to the wrath of an invincible spirit only to be miraculously saved by an exorcism expert couple. It also garnered praise for its clean nature. What more? They’re already working on a sequel and a spin off.
9. Despicable Me 2
Minions minions minions! We loved them so much they’re getting a spin off movie with just minions. Despicable Me 2 was one of the most awaited films and churned out to be the best animation film. It actually surpassed many big hits. The film brings inescapable joy to even the serious folks.
8. Now You See Me
Louis Leterrier’s film has magic as its essence. An original adaptation with scintillating visuals and power-packed performances from each actor with a supersmart screenplay keeps you rapt throughout the show. Jesse Eisenburg is the Sherlock of the future.
It didn’t have the gravity of hype, but when it struck we got swayed to the multiplexes. Gravity is a never before seen type of film. It’s simply spectacular. Alfonso Cuaron’s original adaptation, yes it’s not from some novel or comic, brought original stories back to the spotlight after Nolan’s Inception. It topped weekend after weekend to gross a mighty $640 million.
6. Pacific Rim
Many wrote this one off before its release. Pacific Rim is the latest illustration of Don’t judge a book by its cover. This film brought the child out of everyone. Just like those old days of watching great machines with one hell of a background score which reverberates for a week. Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi is all in for the ever excited hearts.
5. Fast & Furious 6
Nothing beats speeding cars, sexy babes, and cheesy one-liners. They even got an aeroplane in this one. Blazing guns and unimaginable leaps and lungs on equally unimaginable things were the trademark of Justin Lin’s second instalment of the perceived trilogy. We will miss enough of our darling Brain O’Conner.
4. Thor: The Dark World
We never get bored even if it’s just a hammer. Excitement was at its pinnacle when Game of Thrones henchman Alan Taylor was roped in the already hyped Thor: The Dark World. Chris Hemsworth coarse voice and character coupled with Loki’s mischief were sheer pleasure and gratuity. Asgard’s visuals are stupendous.
3. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy presented by Peter Jackson is a marvel to live. The epic tale of hobbits gets better this year. Dwarfs, orcs, skin-changers, elves, spiders, wizards and what not; they’ve got it. The bliss of the visual treat reminiscences for days after watching this movie. There’s a sequel left, but we might not see such films again.
2. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The girl on fire will always be desired for her beauty, courage, honesty and finally her smartness. Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen with such surety that other actors look pale despite their seniority. The story and screenplay are such a rarity that we just want them to somehow do it again. May the odds be ever in their favour.
1. Iron Man 3
You can take away my tricks and toys…but you can’t take one thing away from me….I am Iron Man. Ever escalating technology on one side and one badass villain only to know that our superhero is himself super badass. He may not remember what he had for breakfast, but there are guys who just want to be him every second. No one gets the better off Robert Downey Jr. Period.
