Mike’s Top 10 Movies of 2013 and Viewing Stats for the Year


Listen to us discuss our favorite and least favorite movies from 2013 on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast

We survived the 2012 end of days! It’s really a miracle that we got to see any movies in 2013, right? Let alone 20 movies ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE!

In keeping with the great tradition (check out Matt and Tiny’s posts earlier today), here are my top ten movies of the year. They aren’t necessarily the BEST movies of the year, and that’s intentional. Best of the year list tend to be similar, and have very few surprises. So while you’ll find a few movies on this list that aren’t surprising at all, I like to think that my list has a combination of consensus with the critics and going against the grain. They might not be the best, but these are my Top Ten Favorite Movies of 2013.

The Month in Movies: August 2013

August was a slow month for me when it comes to my movie watching. Historically speaking, it’s a slow month for me anyways. In years past I had the start of school drastically cutting back my numbers. Not to mention, I also have the beginning of the fall TV season to vie for my attention.

So August is always a slow month. However, this year I managed to squeeze in 17 movies. I would say that the absence of school in my life may have contributed to it, but this was my best August since 2008. I think 2008 may have actually been the last August I was in school. I’m not sure.

In any case, here are the best and worst of my movies watched in August 2013. Continue reading

After yet another lengthy battle with Garageband, the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast is officially posted! I’m starting to think I should start a separate podcast that’s just me yelling while I edit this one.

This week we discussed Elysium and veered off on a bit of an I Am Legend tangent. Inspired by the Slightly Sauced podcast, we took to Yahoo! Answers and gave our expertise on a variety of movie-related questions. It was a blast and we’ll probably do it again in the future.

Enjoy this week’s podcast and, if you feel like it, write us a review on iTunes. You can also share your memorable movie theater experiences with us. Continue reading
