goodbye 2013.

New Years Eve! Which means I can finally link back to the most adorable duet of all time:

Anyway. 2013 has been pretty good to me. It’s been pretty good for film too, as evidenced by Gen Ip’s (possibly last!) annual filmography (though she does have an amazing knack for showing the beauty in even the most generic Hollywood films). Joining the student cinema has meant I can pick out a lot more this year. I loved The Place Beyond the Pines and The Way Way Back despite their flaws. Sequels Catching Fire and The Desolation of Smaug managed to better their predecessors, while Avengers follow-ups Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 lived up to expectations. Working behind the scenes has been interesting and I have mixed opinions about the gradual move into digital (on the plus side, it means film is more accessible and easier to show. But somehow it does lose a little of that old movie magic). But change is coming, so we can only embrace it.

Hope you have a lovely 2014.
