We're past the sixth month mark at the movies and the pictures that have lingered in my mind longest aren't the summer blockbusters (though I quite liked Man of Steel), but the releases from March, which isn't known for quality. Trance, The Place Beyond the Pines and Mud currently reside at the top of my list, although there are several pictures unseen still that should figure prominently in that list (Only God Forgives, Before Midnight) that will be available to me soon.
As it stands here are my favorites of 2013 thus far (in no particular order):
The Place Beyond the Pines
Man of Steel
Star Trek Into Darkness
The Great Gatsby
Missed the Cut: Oblivion, Mama, Side Effects, Iron Man 3.
Notable films not seen: Much Ado About Nothing, Stoker, Before Midnight, To the Wonder.
