    @redcameraman That's true, but this movie and the Drag me to Hell movie are two different genres.

      @thedude-abides -- I heard it was a black comedy, and that's what really interested me. Needless to say, I was unsatisfied.

          Thanks, @narrator. Most definitely -- there's no way I'm missing out on that discussion come December, lol.

            I think that's a perfect balance of films in your twenty five, @thedude-abides. Especially with the three blockbusters you listed to bawnian-dexeus and the three Malick films balancing out. Btw, is Desolation of Smaug going to be a guilty pleasure see this year? :D

              @narrator True. Hopefully the Malick three (as I'm calling them) and the remaining Gosling films will help bring some balance.

                @bawnian-dexeus Yeah, I'd say Star Trek and Wolverine for sure, and possibly Man of Steel.

                  @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Lol. I gotcha. As for Evil Dead, I'd have to see it again to really pick up on it. I remember the film pretty well, just not the humor you're referring to.

                    @narrator Nothing against you personally. Last night I finished reading from articles and chapter pages that talk about digital age, networks and windows of distribution. Some pages just pissed me off about the general public.

                      Lol, @bawnian-dexeus. Yes, cut everything off. That'll definitely show us ungrateful's. Face it - things have and always will be this way, man. I'm simply pointing out the fact that this years films, while they look great on paper, may end up disappointing the hell out of me once again. We're thankfully past the majority of remakes despite the dozens we have incoming, but sequels and reboots still thrive financially. If being cautious makes me ungrateful, there's nothing I can do about that.

                        @narrator Meh, it's a slow night. People are ungrateful these days. I sai cut off entertainment all together

                          I appreciate Shakespeare, @bawnian-dexeus, but I believe he's a bad person to use as an example. The book adaptions I'm referring to are sketchy at best. Solid stuff like The Great Gatsby or Ender's Game is balanced out by films like Parker and potentially Horns (despite my love of the book).

                            @narrator Least books give us some entertainment, even if the majority of people don't read Shakespeare, or Gabriel Garcias Marquez anymore

                              @thedude-abides -- And here I thought I was the only one! Can you enlighten me of the dark humor used in "The Evil Dead"? I didn't get any of it, and I love dark comedies more than almost anything.

                              I do, too. I just don't think it'll live up to 2008 and 2010, for example. But, that may not be a fair comparison. Yeah, after viewing that list of yours, I'm a little more optimistic about '13. I just get infuriated by all these blockbusters and bad movies that I've seen this year, and turn into Mr. Negative.

                                I'm with you almost note for note on those 20-25 films, @thedude-abides. My only complaint is that a LOT of book adaptions are happening this year, as well as quite a few of the usual sequels and remakes. Nothing wholly original in my top twenty list.

                                  @thedude-abides I'm guessing at least one blockbuster ?

                                    This movie actually looks like it'll be a HUGE improvement over that abomination of a film called "Drag Me To Hell."

                                      @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx F*ck me, then, lol; I can't stand Raimi's work. Evil dead being the exception, of course. But I understand why you feel otherwise.

                                      On another note, I agree. 2013 may not be a stellar year for film, but I do think it'll be much better than 2012. There are about 20-25 films I'm looking forward to seeing this year, most of which I think will be better than what we saw in 2012.

                                        @bawnian-dexeus -- Eh, I'm indifferent when it boils down to that.

                                        @instead8909 -- Yeah, "Drag Me to Hell", "Spider-Man 3", and "The Evil Dead" were all phenomenal films! F*ck whoever thinks otherwise, I say!

                                          @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I believe that Oz has the most to prove out of the three
