Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, to my top 25 films of 2013!
In the film Wall Street, Gordon Gekko says, “The point is ladies and gentleman that greed, for a lack of a better word, is good.” No one understands this quote than Jordan Belfort. A stockbroker, who in the 1980s and 90s gained his fortunes by selling penny stocks to wealthy, middle and working class investors. Unlike Wall Street, which showed you the character of Gordon Gekko through the eyes of Bud Fox; Director, Martin Scorsese, approaches The Wolf of Wall Street through the character of Jordan Belfort by having Belfort himself tell his story. The result is an abashed, exciting, disgusting, exhausting, eye-opening and entertaining film about a loathsome man and his friends.
Man of Steel
Directed by: Zack Snyder | Release Date: 14 June, 2013
As a DC fanboy, I am beyond excited for this movie. Ever since Green Lantern I get scared for movies based on DC comics. Marvel is finally hitting a stride with their movies and I want to see DC also succeed. Man of Steel brings together Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David Goyer. Snyder is a master of filming action, Goyer is a superb writer and Nolan is the master storyteller. On paper this seems like the perfect team. Also what a perfect cast right? Especially after seeing the 3rd trailer, it blew my mind. Seeing those visuals, hearing the score and watching Superman finally punch the shit out of people; Man is Steel looks to be a super hero blockbuster with heart.
