Best and worst movies of 2013

Hey, everybody! To celebrate the new year, I have also decided to post my top ten best and worst movies of the year. I have decided to also post the top ten highest grossing movies of the year, and some box office bombs this year, just for your information. Here are my top ten favorite movies of 2013 and why I liked them (not all of these movies have been reviewed on FilmToppings, since I didn’t watch all of them in the theaters):

1. Gravity: This movie has breathtaking cinematography and visual effects, and is possibly one of my favorite movies of all time. (5 out of 5 pizza slices)

2. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: This movie has amazing visual effects, especially the dragon, and has lots of suspense. It is way better than the first Hobbit movie. I can’t wait to see what happens next. (5 out of 5 pizza slices)

3. Thor: The Dark World: This movie is very entertaining, and is possibly my favorite Marvel movie other than The Avengers. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

4. Fast and Furious 6: Very entertaining, but not as good as the 5th movie in the trilogy. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

5. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: Slower but way better than the original, and has an amazing soundtrack. I absolutely cannot wait to see Mockingjay – Part 1.(4 out of 5 pizza slices)

6. Ender’s Game: Very satisfying for a fan of the novel, and has a great soundtrack. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

7. Pacific Rim: This film has awesome graphics and  cool action scenes. Any action fan would enjoy this movie just like I did. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

8. The Wolverine: The action is great and very entertaining, and much better than I expected, since I thought it would be boring. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

9. Red 2: Very entertaining and funny. I recommend it for all Bruce Willis fans. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

10. Saving Mr. Banks: This movie is well-acted and has great costume designing as well. (4 out of 5 pizza slices)

Here are some of the worst movies of 2013 and why I hated them (not all of these movies have been reviewed on FilmToppings, since I didn’t watch all of them in the theaters):

1. Paranoia: I expected this movie to be an action movie (since the trailer made it look like an action movie), but when I saw it, it hardly had any action! (1 out of 5 pizza slices)

2. After Earth: I expected this movie to be cool, but the action scenes don’t last that long, and neither does the movie!  It lacks suspense and is too serious of a movie. (1 out of 5 pizza slices)

3. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters: This movie is extremely disappointing and dumb, and has terrible visual effects. (1 out of 5 pizza slices)

4. R.I.P.D.: This lifeless movie has bad visual effects, and isn’t funny like I thought it would be. (1 out of 5 pizza slices)

5. The Lone Ranger: This movie is very disappointing, slow, and stupid, especially Johnny Depp’s character. (1 out of 5 pizza slices)
