Third Quarter of 2013


We're 75% of the way through 2013 and it's time for my quarter end review!  And it's probably also a good time to refresh your memory on the films of the first quarter and films of the second quarter  (with some additions since I originally posted them).

Below are the 87 films I saw that were released in the third quarter of 2013.   Overall I thought it was a very good quarter, with 44 of them getting a grade of B+ or better.

(As usual I may have tweaked a few grades since my original review after pondering them a bit.)
