Statistics Saturday: The Ten Movies of 2013


For your Saturday evening or whatever statistical roundup I’d like to offer the ten movies of 2013 which made my list here, and some useful data about them.

Movie Did I See It?
Iron Man 3 No
Oz The Great And Powerful No
Turbo For Some Reason Yes
Metallica Through The Never Wait, What?
Top Gun 3D Did I make that up?
Admission Dear Lord No
Free Birds Come on
Fast Times at Ridgemont High [*]
Snake and Mongoose What?
Star Trek Into Darkness [**]

[*] Not in theaters. My Dearest was horrified that I had never ever seen it, so got the DVD and we had a movie night with that and the classic 80s film Some Other Ubiquitous 80s Film I Never Saw Either And I Forget Which One But It Wasn’t Say Anything, and sometime we’ll get around to Raiders of the Lost Ark, which I hear a lot of people say has some good parts.

[**] We saw it in May but I only last week got why the other starship in it was called the Vengeance, which tells you how slow I am on the uptake.

  1. I love this post, too! The list of movies I saw (or heard of) in 2013 looks almost identical to yours! But I have never seen and probably never will see Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    1. To be fully honest I should point out some of these movies I never heard of until I went looking up movies from 2013 to be on the list. But they all exist, I think, as things, and have some kinds of definite properties such as a basic movie-ness, probably.

      I enjoyed Fast Times at Ridgemont High, although I’m not sure I’d say it’s something someone just has to see if they’ve missed it.

  2. Much as it is to my disappointment, I also did not see Snake and Mongoose. I suspect it may, at some point, have been in a theatre somewhere in a neighboring country, but I missed it.

    1. Possible; it was one of those movies that sticks to limited release. But it is coming out in downloadable form … er … this Tuesday. It’s about a famous rivalry in the drag-racing world, though, not about any particular literal snake or mongoose. Also the drag-racing world has famous rivalries, which I didn’t know but I suppose fits the whole idea that the drag-racing world has its own interests and legends and activities and whatnot.
