Don't Believe the Hype: Ten Movies of 2013 We're Not Sold On Yet

The Hollywood hype machine has more moving pieces than those two racist Transformers from Revenge of the Fallen. And it's very good at what it does--try to get you excited and interested in movies that are ultimately just putrid H-wood trash (I'm looking at you Battleship). It used to be that you'd show up to see a new movie and there'd be a trailer in front of it and you'd be like, 'Whoa, I didn't know they were making a Batman movie. And with Michael Keaton?' Now images and footage drips out and leaks onto the net like an old woman who pees a little when she laughs. And this could be well over a year before the actual movie even comes out.

So I take anything Hollywood shows me with a grain of salt. Because I remember how cool that first Martian teaser for Transformers was and I remember how the movie was the exact opposite. I remember how Green Lantern was proffered to us as a potentially interesting movie and then I remember what Green Lantern actually was--you could fit all the negative things I have to say about that movie into Peter Sarsgaard's god awful giant head prosthetic that he wore in the film. I've been burned before...and I won't be burned again.

So check the gallery for the ten big tent-pole movies of next year that I'm suspicious may actually suck.
