No matter what your taste in movies is, if you go see whatever is playing at the moment or if you only watch them if Rotten Tomatoes says so, I think we can all agree on one thing: 2013 was an amazing year for movies.  For every garbage put together, there was a well-done motion picture waiting right besides it.  This made my Top 10 of the year a particularly hard one, since it was almost impossible for me to choose what great movies I would have to leave out.  In the end, I was able to be fair with my decisions, and here it is for all of you to see!

Note: I’m a college student, which means the amount of money in my bank account is probably less than or equal to a 6-year-old’s piggy bank.  So basically, I can’t be going to the movies that often while I’m at school.  There are a lot of movies that have amazing ratings and that I know would probably make my top 10 list that I have yet to watch.

Let me start off by saying sorry for not writing in over a month.  As some of you might know, I was in Europe this semester studying abroad, and I did not finish finals until the last week of May.  But now, I’m back in Puerto Rico, and I am ready to write some more!  As of the moment, I am currently in the process of writing four reviews, which you might expect to be up any day in the next week or two!  However I am still not done writing them, so for now, I’ll leave you guys with a trailer for a movie I am extremely excited for, MACHETE KILLS!  The sequel to the 2010 Machete counts once again with Danny Trejo in the lead role as the ex-Federale with a taste for vengeance, Machete, along with recurring roles from Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez.  Also joining the cast will be Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga in her first film role, and none other than Charlie Sheen, as the President of the United States.  Director Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills will be hitting theaters September 13, 2013.

Will you be watching this movie when it comes out?

This morning, I woke up to wonderful news.  After the instant comedy classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the British duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost join forces once again with director Edgar Wright in Wright’s next and last comedy in the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy“, The World’s End.  The World’s End will follow 5 best friends on a legendary pub crawl that they could not finish back in their teenager days. They must go to 12 pubs and have 12 pints, ending their run in The World’s End pub.  However, it seems like a lot has changed since they had last been to that little town where the pub crawl takes place.  It even feels like a different planet… (more…)

The Hangover brought us a hilarious new look into what can happen after an awesome night of partying.  The Hangover Part II brought us more of the exact same thing, but equally hilarious.  Now, after receiving so many criticism for what was done in the second part, Todd Phillips brings us the final chapter to this record-setting franchise.  And based on the looks of it, The Hangover Part III will follow a completely different plot.  This time, there is no wedding, and apparently, not even a hangover; this one will be going a whole different way.  Watch the two trailers that have been put out to the public now!

Pineapple Express, possibly the best stoner film of all time, will be having a sequel!  The commercial has finally hit the web, and shows the two smoking buddies in a quest like no other: the assassination of Woody Harrelson (at least that’s what Red thinks).  Starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, the film will also count with Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Jonah Hill… Wait, what?  Didn’t a trailer with these same guys come out a month or two ago?

Oh… That’s why.

This is the End will come out June 14, 2013.

As many people already know, director Quentin Tarantino did not originally have Jamie Foxx in his mind when he wrote down Django’s character for his box office hit Django Unchained.  He actually had Will Smith in his mind!  However, it caused surprise when it was announced that Jamie Foxx would be taking the role of Django, after Will Smith turned down this role.  Now, why would anyone ever turn down a role offered by Quentin Tarantino himself?  Apparently, it was just not enough for Will Smith.  In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Will said, “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead.”  The star of big hits such as the Men In Black trilogy also was quoted stating, “The other character was the lead! I was like, ‘No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!'”  He was, of course, referring to Dr. King Schultz, played by Christoph Waltz, who ended up winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in the most recent Oscars.   When asked his opinion of the movie, he simply responded “Brilliant… Just not for me.”

Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio, has been the highest grossingDjango_Unchained_22 Tarantino movie up-to-date, with over $410 million worldwide.  It was nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, of which it won the second one.

Will Smith is at the moment promoting his new science fiction movie, After Earth, in which he will star alongside his son, Jaden Smith.

Do you think Will Smith missed out on the opportunity of his career by turning down this role?  Would he have been a better Django than Jamie Foxx?  Leave your opinions below!

It’s finally here! The trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has finally hit the web.  The sequel to the 2010 hit Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass 2 will bring back Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as the villain, Red Mist (name that apparently changes when you see the trailer), avenging his father’s death.  In addition, Jim Carrey will be playing Colonel Stars.  Watch the Redband Trailer now!

What do you think of the trailer?  Will this movie be better than the first one?
