Amy’s 2013 in Movies
This year has been the year I’ve watched the most films in a year EVER — or at least since I’ve been keeping track. I usually set a personal 48 film mark to make sure I watch, at least, a movie a week. This 2013, however, I passed my 100th last week and there’s a chance I could reach 120 (my current count is 107).
Now, this is all numbers. I have to admit that I haven’t had any strong feelings over any particular movie so far. Maybe it’s been due to personal problems, or all the really awesome movies are gonna show up on the last week of December because everyone’s hungry for award season.

I Did Not Expect That Moment
The first sex scene in La Vie d’Adele that for some reason seemed never-ending. I’ve timed it; it didn’t last 12 or 9 minutes like some had said, but it was a good 7 minutes. I can’t imagine seeing that at a theater and not feel somewhat uncomfortable.

Movie Everyone Loves But I Didn’t Care for… Much
I never expected to laugh this much with something that looks like this:
I gotta admit, I had to work extra hard to make the categories fit with the films this year. That’s exactly how lukewarm I am with most of the things I’ve watched this year.
