Movies I gotta see in 2013.

2012 was one of the best years for movies. We had The Dark Knight Rises, Lincoln, Life of Pi, The Master, Django Unchained, Skyfall, Silver Linings Playbook... and I still haven't seen half of them. 2012 was a year almost too good to be true. But it feels like there was so much given in 2012, that there isn't a whole lot to get in 2013. But I will try to make the most of it.
