New blurays Jan 2013

Here are some blurays I have bought over the last few months, I have also got Paranorman and V/H/S/ on pre-order I really cannot wait to watch them again and see any special features they have!

Tarantino XX 20 year collection boxset


Really looking forward to this coming, I just ordered it today! I already have the Pulp Fiction steelbook and the Resevoir Dogs petrol can steel tin blurays but I was happy to double dip on them to get this awesome set!

The Lord Of The Rings extended edition boxset







Planes, Trains and Automobiles

This is one of my all time favourite comedy movies! I could watch this over and over and still laugh so hard at some off the stuff that happens in this film! Also has anyone else noticed that Steve Martin never seems to age?

Moonrise Kingdom


Fantastic Mr Fox

I bought the only 2 blurays available off movies made by Wes Anderson, I really want all the others but or some reason they just havent been released here yet. I have most of his films on DVD and two were double dipped on Criterion too, just becasue I love the artwork. But I just really feel like I am missing out on seeing bluray versions of some of my favourite movies. So I only bought Moonrise Kingdom and Fantastic Mr Fox. I noticed this is the same with Pedro Almadovar movies and Lars Von Trier. Last year I bought the only blurays available for them (2 each) and since then no others have beenn released. Hopefully they will soon!

Blue Valentine


The Five year engagement





Puss In Boots


Coraline





Xmen: First Class


Blue Velvet



To add to my David Lynch collection I am building.

Kill List





Dark Shadows





To add to my Tim Burton collection.

Zodiac



My favourite David Fincher movie.

The Prestige

Prometheus 





We need to talk about Kevin

Oldboy steelbook

The evil dead steelbook









So thats most of the blurays I bought recently, but when I say recently I mean over the last 3 months or so, so it isnt me being as greedy as it may seem as I know I have bought quite a lot looking at this list. I am hoping in the next few months to finally buy the Hitchcock collection on bluray as I already own 2 DVD boxsets, and the Starwars collection boxset which I was hoping would have gone down alot more by now but its still quite expensive.

Anway thanks for reading =]

Films for 2013

These are some films I am looking forward to the most that are being released in 2013, there are quite a few horror movies im not too sure if that just means I am looking forward to these most becasue I love horror or if its actually because we have a good year of horror coming up - maybe more so than recent years. I dont usually care for remakes but it seems that this year there will be quite a few and some listed below look like they will be worth seeing.



The Great Gatsby

Gatsby looks like it is going to be the most stylish movie of the year.
Evil Dead

The evil dead trilogy are some of my favourite horror movies ever and so I was not happy when I heard this was being made. However I then realised that it is being produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell and they have had overall say in how this was made, so I am now happy =] and I really cannot wait to see this, I watched the trailer 3 or 4 times in a row when it was first circling the internet and I am actually so glad that they have done this before someone else did.

Man of Steel

American Mary

The place beyond the pines




 
Stoker

Park Chan-Wooks first english speaking movie about a fucked up family - looks interesting and I love the gothic posters. 
 


 
Carrie

A remake of one of my another one of my all time favourite horror movies. It better be good otherwise I will be really disapointed.

Byzantium

Another vampire movie from Neil Jordan who did Interview with a Vampire.


The Conjuring

From the people who made Insidious, so obviously I cannot wait to be terrified by this as I loved Insidious.



Other movies that look interesting:

I give it a year
The Counselor
The Wolf Of Wall Street
Hitchcock
Side by Side

My favourite movies of 2012

I have not seen every movie released this year so I wont be able to include some that I still really want to see so if there are any missing that you think should have been here then that is probably why, either that or I just didnt like it enough to be added.  Also I am cheating a bit as I couldnt whittle these down enough so its a top 15.

15. Magic Mike

The most surpising movie this year.
I think this film was advertised totally wrong and maybe alot of people didnt see this becasue they thought it was just a silly male stripper film made just for women to drool at. Dont get me wrong the guys are really hot! But this is not just about stripping, it is actually more about people trying to find themselves and its more a drama about friendship and relationships. This is the first entry in the list with Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, who have both played some brilliant roles this year. Channing Tatum was not only in Magic Mike, but also one of the best comedies this year 21 Jump Street and one of the best action movies this year Haywire.  Matthew McConaughey went crazy this year, for the better. He stopped doing the cheesy rom-coms and took on some more interesting and some could say, risky roles in Magic Mike and Killer Joe (later on in this list)


14. The five year engagement

My favourite romantic comedy movie this year

13. The avengers

I dont really need to say much about the avengers, almost everyone who will read this would have watched it. It may be surprising to some that it is not higher up, but I just thought even though it is a brilliant action/comic book movie and def the best ever there were other movies this year that I cared more about. I still this its awesome though!!! 

12. Haywire



11. Paranorman

My favourite animated movie this year

10. Looper
 


9. Chronicle

8. VHS

7. Killer Joe
 


6.  Cabin in the woods



5. Saftey not guarenteed



4. The Grey



3. Beasts of the Southern wild



2. Prometheus


1. The Dark Knight Rises



It was a close call between Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises, they were both amazing in their own ways. I am looking forward to 2013 with a whole load of new movies to look forward to.

Films that I liked alot but didnt quite make it to the list -
Moonrise Kingdom, The Hunger games, The woman in black, Project X, Cloud Atlas, Dredd, The Pirates! Band of Misfits and Ted.

5 Worst films of the year -
The Devil Inside, Total Recall, Underworld:Awakening, Thats my boy, Mirror Mirror.

Films I have not seen yet but really want to from 2012 -
Rust and Bone, Amour, The Hobbit, Les Miserables, Skyfall,  Brave, Lincoln, The Raid, Frankenweenie, The Imposter, Take this Waltz, Shut up and play the hits, Ruby Sparks, Celeste and Jesse forever, Django Unchained, The Master and silver linings playbook, Zero dak thirty, Argo and probably many more.
