Film Log 2013

Here is my list of movies watched in 2013 (Though I’m pretty sure I DID forget to write down at least a few this year, it happens… I know I watched “Planes” in the theaters with my son and forgot to write it down, so it appears at the end of the year when we watched it on Blu-Ray). The films that I especially liked are in bold, and the ones that I really did not are in italics, and the ones I reviewed are underlined (I’m not going to link them here, if you want to read the reviews, put the title in the search box to the right there and it should come right up).  The titles marked with a * denote a short (less than 50 minute) film.
