Random Fridays: Best Movies of 2013

Hey guys! Welcome to Random Fridays!



This is a thing every week hosted by Emma!
This week it's about the best movies this year. I had quite a few similar ones to Emma, but I also have quite a few that she does have so let's do this! (click HERE to view her post)


Movie: The Hobbit
Release date: December 14, 2012 (Sorry I'm cheating a little..... oops)
My reaction: This was a well filmed movie and I liked the actors but I really didn't get into the plot. LOTR has never been my thing but I tried this and it was better than I thought, but still not great. Just thought it was worth mentioning.




Movie: Les Miserables
Release date: December 25, 2012 (seriously it's close enough to 2013.... cut me some slack, haha)
My reaction: this movie was amazing! When I finally convinced my mom to let me see it, I got together with Sea and Christine and I didn't really know what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised at how well it was done! All the actors/actresses did an amazing job with everything! Sadly, I have to say I didn't cry.



Movie: The Croods
Release date: March 22, 2013
My reaction: I thought this was a super cute movie, it even made me cry at the end. Sadly, it wasn't Disney Pixar..... Then it would definitely be going in my collection :)



Movie: Monster's University
Release date: June 21, 2013
My reaction: I LOVED this movie!! Probably one of the very best I saw this year..... I thought it was better than Monster's Inc. even though there was no Boo. I loved that it gave the whole back story of Monster's Inc as well. If you haven't seen it, please go rent it from your library and watch it. 


Movie: This Is Us
Release Date: Technically August 30, but I saw it on August 29, 2013
My reaction: FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEAR! Enough said. 



Now these are some movies I'm looking forward to that haven't come out yet!


Movie: The Book Theif
Release date: November 15, 2013
My reaction: I honestly just recently found out there was going to be a movie of this..... I have mixed feelings because I loved the book, I just don't know if I'm ready to see it visually yet. We'll have to see! I'm so glad that they are making this into a film though because it may get people to read the book which I highly recommend!



Movie: The Hunger Games- Catching Fire
Release date: November 22, 2013
My reaction: I was super excited for the first one but it was a letdown, so I'm not expecting much out of this one. They did get a new director for this, but I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Hopefully good! Also, I'm not appreciating the title, they should have just left it "Catching Fire". I realllllllyyyyyyy hope this one is better than the first!! 



Movie: Frozen
Release date: November 27, 2013
My reaction: I am SOOOO excited for this new Disney princess movie!! The princess's name is Princess Anna and her sister is Princess Elsa. I'm just way to excited. Watch this, it's the cutest thing EVER!



And that's it for me folks! Have a great day :)

    1. Yes! I read it at the end of seventh grade I think, and it's sad because it's in the time of the Holocaust :( Plus it's written in the perspective of death.... I would highly recommend it though!

  2. Hated 1D, loved the hobbit (it was amazing, whatcha talking about? ;p) loved monstr university, didn't see les miserable a (me+musicals=no), and loved the croods. I'm basically only excited for frozen cause catching fire even e trailer is so different from the book, or the trailer I saw and I didn't read the book their. Is it good?

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
