Upcoming Films of 2013: March-May

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Previews, Movies | 1 Comment

As some of you may remember, last March I did a post outlining every upcoming movie of 2012. Joseph and I recently started creating such a post for this year but then decided that it would definitely be an information overload for everyone. We’ve decided to just make a series of these for 2013 and break down a few months’ releases at a time. Here are all the movies being released in Memphis/Nashville during the remainder of March thru the …

When it comes to viewing Steven Soderbergh films, you usually know you’re going to have to make both an emotional and intellectual investment. His latest film, which he has proclaimed will be his final cinematic venture, is no exception.

All good things must come to an end. I hope you’ve considered my top 50 films of 2012 countdown a good thing and I hope to bring it home with a strong top 10 finale.

First things first- after publishing my 31-50 rankings, it was brought to my attention that I did a terrible job of explaining my desire to rank my top 50 movies instead of 10 like most people or even 25 like I did last year.

Last February as The Wise Guise was making its debut, I was frantically trying to rank my top 25 films of 2011. I did posts with numbers 11-25, and then 1-10. Looking back, there are a few that I would definitely re-order a little bit. But I’m still very proud of my top two especially.

A couple weeks ago, Joseph shared a link with me from a Grantland post about the upcoming Harmony Korine film, Spring Breakers. I was instantly curious about the film and decided to do a little research. Who is this Harmony Korine guy that apparently people have actually heard of? What is this Spring Breakers movie? Well good people, the following is my journey into Spring Breakers and Harmony Korine. Buckle up, because this is an absurd ride.
