After seven months of 2013, I know this:
I've generally enjoyed going to the movies this year.
Most of the films I saw met, or exceeded my expectations.
Sure I saw a few bad flicks, but I was fully prepared for their failures going in.
I knew Die Hard 5 wasn't somehow going to be the better than DIE HARD.
The key to the year has been, that on a weekly basis, Hollywood has kept me entertained.
I don't know if I've seen an all-time great, but to me, that means we have yet to see 2013's best.
