I had a mediocre movie-watching month last month. But that’s secondary to the fact that I have eviscerated my previous movie-watching numbers. With a few weeks left in 2013, I have already had the best year in terms of movies watched since I started tracking my viewing habits in 2007.
Check back in the new year for my final stats. As for now, here is a breakdown of the best and worst of the movies I viewed in the penultimate month of 2013. As always, don’t forget to follow me and the blog around the internet with the links below.

Here’s a quick rundown of my picks for tonight’s Oscars. I’m running a pool with my friends and I have it set up includes a point system. Each category gets their nominees ranked in reverse order. The top choice gets the most points in the category. The bottom choice gets a 1. Once all the awards are given, the points are tallied and the winner gets the money.
