Originally Published at EXAMINER

1- her (2)Going through the list of best films of the year for 2013 proved to be tougher than first imagined as though there was a lot of films that are deservedly worth maligning and ignoring all together, the films that were good were really good! The following list is the top 25 ranked in order for the year 2013, with a little blurb about each film.

NOTE: This list could only be full of films that were watched by myself in 2013, of course. Notable exceptions of films that were not seen include Gravity, American Hustle, Blue is the Warmest Color, Broken Circle Breakdown, Captain Phillips and Before Midnight. Also some films like Much Ado About Nothing were on my list from 2012. (more…)

Dead Air Podcast- Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

dead airThis edition of the Dead Air podcast is all about the newest entry into the Paranormal Activity series, The Marked Ones. I sat down with Dead Air host Jeff Konopka to discuss the latest chapter in the found footage series, whether it should still be found footage, how does it fit into the series as a whole and whether the change in cast helps the series or hinders it.

Oh and the spoilers section feature is kinda fun as you’ll literally hear me blow Jeff’s mind with my observations about the series.
