2013 Year in Review

I saw 40 movies in the theater in 2013. Well, two of them were in 2014, but they were 2013 movies.

At the beginning of the year, I made a forecast. It's time to revisit that. First, there were only 20 movies on the list, and I saw only 17 of them (Jack Ryan and 300: Rise of an Empire were delayed to 2014, and Movie 43 disappeared from theaters before I had a chance to see it).

The five movies I thought would be very good (Ender's Game, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Man of Steel, Monsters University, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) ended up 7, 9, 19, 31, and 35. Man of Steel probably deserves a lower spot than that. Except for Ender's Game and Star Trek, this portion of the list was a huge disappointment.

The movies on the "good" list ended up 2, 10, 14, 16, 29, and 37. I think what we're learning here is that I'm not very good at this prediction business.

I did much better on the not-quite-good portion: 26, 27, 30.

All three of the movies I did not see were in the "bad but still enjoyable" category. The ones I did see finished 20, 32, and 39, and while the first two were indeed enjoyable, Lone Ranger was terrible.
