Gravity (2013)

Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi action piece is just as much a meditation on life, death, and humanity’s will to survive as it is an engaging thrill ride.

Elysium

Elysium paints our dystopian world in the year 2154 — obviously overpopulated while the rich 1% are able to live in a massive pristine habitable space station known as Elysium where life is pretty perfect, at the expense of the rest who still live in Earth ridden with diseases, poverty and the whole shebang.

Heat, The (2013)

There’s something about The Heat that’s more disappointing than anything that your average buddy-cop movie might deliver.

Camioneta, La

A documentary about the journey of an American school bus in Guatemala, as well as a socioeconomic study of sorts.

Kick-Ass 2

The movie will split in two with Hit-Girl being thrown in a Mean Girls/Carrie sorta mash-up, and with Kick-Ass discovering new costumed heroes to do good with.

Epic (American Film)

There ARE tiny people known as Leafmen trying to defend their kingdom from evil skull-wearing creatures called Boggans, led by the most evil of all: Mandrake.

Computer Chess

Proving itself as a smart and layered work that practically begs for a rewatch, Andrew Bujalski’s film will more than likely leave you lost in a loop for days.

Adore (2013)

This melodramatic tale of two mothers in love with the others son will be sure to stir up some discussion with its unconventionality.

Byzantium

Ranking up with Thirst and Let the Right One In when it comes to the best modern vampire works, Byzantium is a gorgeous, well-written film that boasts great performances.
