The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: Finale

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

We've finally arrived at the top five movies. I'm so very stoked for these movies, it's hard to explain how I feel. There's just so much potential for these films and they all have incredible talent both in front of and behind the camera. 3 of the 5 movies on this page are original scripts. Not based on a book or anything else - these are strictly Hollywood blockbusters in the making. It's pretty awesome that when a lot of sequels and reboots keep getting the green light and grab all the attention, there's still a hefty amount of awesome original stuff coming out. With that in mind let's start off the top 5 with one of the hardest working and most creative man working in Hollywood: Guillermo del Toro.


The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: The Real Deal

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

The top ten has arrived a little late - but no worries, there's still plenty of time to figure out if I'm a giant d-bag for my selection! If there is going to be only 10 movies that I would pay full price on - this would be the list. I have really high expectations for all of these movies and if they come even close to fulfilling the hype they've landed on this blog, then I consider it a win!


The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: Reboot!

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

We're getting down to the wire and I'm getting more and more excited as I write about these movies. I think there's a lot of potential for an amazing summer blockbuster season and these next five movies mostly fit that bill. It even seems like the studios want to extend that summer lovin' all the way through Thanksgiving because there's a summer superhero flick destined to show up during the least sexiest holiday of the year. I don't want to jinx anything, but 2013 is turning out to be a lot better than I expected.

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: Extra Point

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

Time to get back to the countdown after an unplanned hiatus. I feel like an idiot this week because I completely forgot about one of the biggest comedies coming out next year - Anchorman: The Legend Continues! Instead of leaving that movie out or kicking out a really awesome movie I want to see - I've simply added it as number 17A. I would have loved to put it much higher, but there's a great pairing with another comedy that works out really well and frankly, there's a lot of really kick-ass movies I want to see next year that I couldn't possibly bump down, even if it was for Ron Burgandy. So after feeling awful for being sick and busy at work the past few days, on top of feeling really really stupid, here's the next five (six, really!) movies!


The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: The Old is New Again

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

I will readily admit I'm part of the teeming masses that loves sequels. 16 of my 25ish are either sequels or part of a franchise. It's no different than any other year. And 2013 has some great sequels coming out - I don't know if they're going to blow anybody away with mind-numbingly awesomeness, but I did like the originals, so why not have more of the same? There's a certain level of comfort with these movies - you're familiar with the characters so it's not too hard to jump right into the action and/or drama. And who knows? Sometimes sequels can outshine the original (The Dark Knight, anyone? I'm ashamed Bill & Ted didn't make that list). Let the TOP 25 commence!


The Most Anticipated Movies of 2013: Remix!

List: 50-46 | 45-41 40-36 | 35-31 | 30-26 | 25-21 | 20-16 | 15-11 | 10-6 | 5-1 | Runners-Up: 10-6 | 5-1 |

This part of the list is full of comebacks, remakes and going back to your roots. Hollywood does have an unhealthy obsession with remaking movies, but if they're done right, who cares? For every Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), there's Let Me In. For every Total Recall (2012), there's War of the Worlds (2005). So they're hit and miss - but as long the cast and crew are solid and there's good intentions for the remake - I'm all for it and will always be on board to check them out. There's actually a really great four-part web series by Kirby Ferguson, who goes in depth into our creative culture and how unoriginal it really is (in both good and bad ways!). I highly recommend watching if you have about 10-15 minutes to spare (for each part). Now onto the list!
