Delayed 2013 Movie Wrap Up

I've moved out of the big city, so it's no longer possible for me to post my year-end movie results on the 31st/ 1st of the year.  I've mulled over a new deadline for myself, and I'm going with one week after the Oscar nominations.  This was the deadline I used years ago, when I compiled a best-of list among my friends and needed to provide a deadline for the feet-draggers!  It seems like a good date to go with as I go forward with onelinereview, to still be timely, but allow me to see movies that are literally impossible to see in December living in a small town.

It was pretty tricky for me to see Blue is the Warmest Color, Nebraska, and even Oscar Best Picture front-runner 12 Years A Slave but I managed.  At this point there are a number of films that I most-certainly have to see before I can post my top ten, including: American Hustle, Dallas Buyers Club, Her; and, on DVD at this point: Fruitvale Station and Short Term 12.

I've seen 40+ films total and I will finalize my list when I've reached my usual 60 titles.

The Oscar nominations will be announced on January 16, 2014.  I'll post my Movie Wrap-Up on January 22nd and my Top Ten Movies and Noteworthy Achievements 2013 on January 23, 2014.

Happy New Year!
