I know what you’re thinking…

“The Eskimo’s became super nomadic and left us hangin’ ” And we kind of did and we want to apologize. But we’re back!

So expect some new things, maybe some old. We’re revamping everything so we can all be friends😀

ESKIMO NEW YEAR IG

2013 Movies of the Year

Standard

Happy New Year everyone! As we start the new year, we would like to look back at the motion pictures of 2013.

Here is a short list of 2013 created by Jorge:

10. The Great Gatsby

Leo’s character really did it and the soundtrack wasn’t too shabby either. Never read the book but I really liked the trailer so it sold me. It had its bad moments but overall it was a heartbreaking story.

9. It’s A Disaster

Todd Berger’s first time directing, writing, and acting all at once. It’s the end of the world. They’re all stuck in a house and it’s just really funny. Great indie film if you haven’t seen it.

8. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

The first one was great. Watched this one and wasn’t disappointed. Funny and has a message at the end that makes your heart warm inside. Unlike Despicable Me 2 which was a huge disappointment.

7. Monsters University

If it wasn’t for their friendship we wouldn’t have Monsters University. Another feel good movie and the animation is superb.

6. The Way Way Back

Sam Rockwell is one of my favorite actors and I was surprised to see Steve Carell in this film. If you want to see Carell as a villain, this is that film (Foxcatcher will blow this role out of the water). Feel-good-coming-of-age film.

5. Trance

Bloody and gruesome but is a very good twist film. The acting is superb and is a must see.

4. Disconnect

Multiple protagonist story about technology in today’s society and what it does. A little far fetched but really makes an impact on how you treat people online. Cinematography was stellar and Max Richter did a great job composing.

3. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Fell a little short at times, seeing as it was one of the most anticipated films for me, but it stuck out and delivered. Great landscapes and portraiture and you really felt for Mitty and his journey.

2. 12 Years a Slave

To say this film is good is an understatement. The acting, the emotion, the heartbreaking story of Solomon Northup is tremendous. If Chiwetel does not win the Oscar in the 86th academy awards ceremony I will lose respect for the film industry.

1. About Time

About Time is not just about the romantic relationship between Rachel Mcadams and Domhnall Gleeson, it’s about family and what it means to everyone. It’s an emotional roller-coaster that doesn’t let up and makes you realize life in a whole different light and that nothing can change that, no matter how hard you try.

Honorable Mentions:

The Heat

This is the End

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Gravity

Had some good films this year, still have to watch more that I never got to. 2014 you’re up.
