Were You Not Entertained? The Top 10 Movies of 2013

“La, la, la, I can’t hear you.”
“La, la, la, Don’t talk to me!”
“La, la, la, NO SPOILERS!”

There used to be a time when I had to see the most hyped, highly anticipated films in the theatre.  Let me clarify, not just in the theatre, but first show, opening day.  If there was a midnight show it was all good; Spiderman (with Tobey Maguire), Pirates, who doesn’t love Captain Jack and Transformers are just to name a few.

I would researched to find unreleased trailers of upcoming blockbusters and get highly upset if a family member (or anyone) saw an official movie preview on television without alerting me. It’s pretty sad to say, but I’m a self-declared Fangirl and I have spawned a legion of Fankids.

So now that you know my backstory, it may come as a shock to hear that I have only seen one movie in the theatre in the last 2 years, After Earth by M.Night Shyamabom (aka M.Night Shyamalan); After Earth didn’t make the top 10, or 25 or even 50 for that matter.  I thought it was ok…but not something I would want to see twice.  I guess many others didn’t want to see it once??

Needless to say, I am out of the loop. I’m neither happy nor sad, but my priorities have changed and now I either catch the most anticipated films on cable or even worse, God forbid, on network TV.  I don’t rent movies.

For what it’s worth, based on the numbers these are the top 10 movies of 2013! Were You Not Entertained, www.imjustsayindamn.com

  1. Iron Man 32013 Gross:  $408,992,272; Tickets Sold:   50,121,601 ~ I did see Iron Man in the theatre, opening day of course, but I still haven’t seen Iron Man 2.  Although I <3 Robert Downey, Jr I cannot commit to Iron Man 3 without seeing Iron Man 2.  Sorry man.
  2. Despicable Me 2 – 2013 Gross:  $367,150,395; Tickets Sold:   44,993,920 ~ I saw part of the first one.  I believe my husband rented it for my daughter.  I can’t remember.  At any rate, it wasn’t worth my rush.
  3. The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire – 2013 Gross:  $336,664,956; Tickets Sold:   41,257,960 ~ I didn’t see the first one and have no desire to see the trilogy, however I hear the books are very interesting.  Prepare yourself for Mockingjay.
  4. Man of Steel – 2013 Gross:  $291,045,518; Tickets Sold:   35,667,342 ~ I was just provided the opportunity to watch this on Blu-ray, but I’m a Marvel Fangirl so I declined. 
  5. Monsters University – 2013 Gross:  $268,449,861; Tickets Sold:   32,898,267 ~ Believe it or not, I just saw a bootleg version of Monsters Inc. this past summer.  All these years I thought Boo was the blue monster.
  6. Gravity – 2013 Gross:  $251,515,254; Tickets Sold:   30,822,947 ~ It just doesn’t seem entertaining to me. Two people in space…I’ll watch it on TV, maybe.
  7. Fast and Furious 6 – 2013 Gross:  $238,679,850; Tickets Sold:   29,249,981 ~ I feel like I now need to see 1 – 5.  Rest In Peace, Paul Walker.
  8. Oz the Great and Powerful – 2013 Gross:  $230,770,996; Tickets Sold:   28,770,955 ~ This I saw on a video stream.  Not bad, I would like to see an Oz the Great and Powerful-Wizard of Oz sequel, but I doubt that I’ll see it on the big screen.
  9. Star Trek Into Darkness – 2013 Gross:  $228,778,661; Tickets Sold:   28,036,600 ~ I’m not a Trekkie, but I do like Captain Jean-Luc Picard, but he’s not in this version of Star Trek.
  10. World War Z – 2013 Gross:  $202,359,711; Tickets Sold:   24,798,984 ~ This sounds familiar, but to tell the truth I have no idea what is it.   

The year is almost over and I only have one question.  Were you not entertained?  There were billions of tickets sold and several billion dollars earned so I am guessing the answer is, Yes.


I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)
