2013 New Year’s Entertainment Resolutions
It’s finally time to cast off the ugly shadow of 2012 once and for all. The Mayans got it wrong and we had to suffer through cruddy movies like ‘2012’ and all kinds of lousy apocalyptic spin-offs.
Now, in 2013, it’s a great chance to resolve to return to the things we hold dear: Joss Whedon, classic sci-fi TV, throwing out that copy of ‘2012’ you bought for $4 on DVD—that kind of thing. Here are our 2013 New Year’s entertainment resolutions!
Joss Whedon’s seminal TV series Buffy, and its noir-ish spin-off, Angel, still stand as some of the best television of the late ‘90s. 2012 brought Joss back into the limelight with The Avengers as well as Cabin in the Woods, so why not rediscover the two franchises that earned him a flock of die-hard fans? There are plenty of seasons of both shows to dig into, so you better get started soon!
If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that Hollywood is obsessed with superhero movies these days. We can’t get enough of them! Now that effects work has caught up with ambition, 2013 is already promising a new Wolverine, Iron Man, Superman, Thor, Kick-Ass and more! Resolve to go back and watch the originals.
Okay, it’s time to let go of zombies. I know, I know—The Walking Dead is still on TV, World War Z is coming to theatres and zombies have never been more popular. But, like vampires, these have begun to stop being interesting. They’ve outstayed their welcome, so it’s time to move on. Resolve to make 2013 the year of The Blob! Or, maybe the year of The Mothman!
Speaking of things that go bump in the night, how about taking a journey back to Chris Carter’s breakthrough sci-fi series, The X-Files? This show had it all—alien conspiracies, shadow governments, monsters, mayhem, a sexy redheaded FBI agent—you name it. Resolve to go back to season one and follow Mulder and Scully on their journey into the unknown.
Let’s just pretend this abhorrent pile of garbage never happened by ritually sacrificing your copy of ‘2012’ on a stone pedestal just as the Mayans would’ve done. Oh John Cusack, you used to be cool. Let’s resolve to never make mention of this movie again.
What are your 2013 entertainment resolutions?
