The new Star Trek and Pacific Rim are pretty good if you're into action movies. I hear Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel were fine, as well.

As far as thoughtful movies, I really have no idea what's good at the moment; though, I've heard The Place Beyond the Pines and 42 are good.

Mud

The Wolverine

Evil Dead

Pacific Rim

Out of the numerous movies I've seen this year, those were the ones that weren't incredibly disappointing.

Edit: Oh crap, I forgot about Fast and Furious 6, that movie was excellent.

That film with Wesley Snipes as a cowboy that kills zombies and is in no way some kind of western-Blade kind of thing.

I've mentioned elsewhere that it is kind of sad the best summer movies this year are Pacific Rim and Furious 6 and there are problems with Pacific Rim. Hollywood should learn "moody" and "dark" do not make up for nonsense stories.

On the honorable mentions list: The Wolverine was surprisingly good. My only real complaint is that they tried to stick with a soft rating so that means the guy with unbreakable, razor sharp claws that gets into many melee fights somehow spills only a cup of blood, mostly on clothes the entire movie. Especially when viewed in the context of Man of Steel with a guy who hems and haws about what is going on instead of noticing everything is blowing up, The Wolverine does a hero movie correctly.

Much Ado About Nothing is also a surprise where the issue is the lack of rehearsal shows. If they kept the low budget but made all of the principals rehearse a bunch more it probably would have been "Oscar Caliber".

I've kind of seen all or most of the big mainstream movies of the year since some nuts pay me to review them. The few good ones have been The Last Stand, Trance, Evil Dead, Pacific Rim, Fast & Furious 6, Stoker, The Wolverine and I Declare War. The best of these was probably the last one, since it's the only one of these I scored above 3½ out of five. Kind of a pissy year thus far.

Its abit cheesy, but fun to watch.

To give an idea about the story: Guy gets bit by a spider, gets super-human abilities (sounds like spider-man I know) but ends up slowly transforming into a giant spider.

Ship of Theseus (<--- Imdb link) is apparently an amazing Indian film. Gonna go watch it today, though I doubt its showing in many places; it's sort of an indie-film. If its playing anywhere or there's any way you can watch it, then i'd suggest that. (I live in India so its been in theaters here for a short while, today's the last show.

@jakemoore1106: WWZ is really good provided you're not expecting the book. Pacific Rim is great so is Star Trek. The Wolverine is worth a watch. Also I haven't seen it yet but I'm just gonna assume Elysium is awesome.

What do you like?

Drama? Science fictions? Period pieces? Foreign films? Quirky comedies?

What I liked this year and last:
Killing Them Softly
Robot & Frank
Fireflies in the Garden
The Secret World of Arrietty (2012)

And, all the other sci-fi and superhero stuff that came out over the last two years.

No they should just watch it. Lest they overload on the majesty of it all, you know?

All you need is Pacific Rim.

Other than that, there have been plenty of films worth watching in recent memory. I personally really enjoyed

  • Evil Dead
  • The Wolverine
  • The Conjuring
  • Man of Steel
  • Star Trek Into Darkness

They're not perfect, but their still fun to watch.

The films I'm looking forward to are The World's End and The Wolf of Wall Street. I'll also probably end up watching the new Thor and the second Hobbit, but I'm not "looking forward" to them, per se, nor am I convinced they'll be any good.

Look up the movie Her.

It's Spike Jonze new movie. It looks incredible. It's about a guy who falls in love with his OS voiced by Scarlett Johanssen

All I really saw from this year were Mama, The Conjuring, Evil Dead, VHS2, Maniac, The ABCs of Death, John Dies at the End and American Mary. Not much has appealed to me this year other than horror. I haven't looked very hard, having gone for older movies instead, but at least as far as Hollywood stuff goes, it's been underwhelming. There's non-horror stuff I'm interested in, mind, I just haven't seen them yet.

I do suggest all of what I listed, though. ABCs was kinda bad, but it's worth seeing, and the others range from "fun" to "legitimately great". Of course, disregard if horror isn't your thing.

It may seem weird but I always try to watch a few art films. The previews before such films are often very surprising because a lot of films that only run in major 'art' cities (New York, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco, etc) are shown. There are a ton of great independent/small arts films with major stars that are well worth watching. People say that great films are not made anymore, but they are, they just don't run in your local cineplex chain.
