2013 in film has been, for my money, a pretty weak year compared to the last few; so many Hollywood blockbusters have missed the mark somewhat (I’m looking at you, Iron Man 3), and simply, there just haven’t been any big surprise hits that defied expectation, such as last year’s brilliant 21 Jump Street and Chronicle, both of which were out of the gate in the first 3 months of the year.
