With three bonafide masterpieces (Before Midnight, Gravity and 12 Years a Slave) already out, 2013 has already been a great year for film. However, the year isn’t over and the Fall Oscar season still has some tricks up its sleeve. Here are 19 movies I’m looking forward to from the most wonderful time of the year at the movies.
1. American Hustle
Directed by David O. Russell, American Hustle has almost everything you could want in a movie: Bradley Cooper with a baby jheri curl, Amy Adams vamping it up, Christian Bale doing his best DeNiro and Jennifer Lawrence being Jennifer Lawrence. American Hustle really wants to be this generation’s Boogie Nights, and by God, I hope it will be. Because that means I’ll get to see Jeremy Renner’s penis. That’s always worth a #1 slot.
