Forgettable films are a waste of time because they leave us with nothing. Being completely inoffensive is arguably worse than being terrible because at least terrible movies give us something to talk about. We may be ragging on it, but at least it’s not something like After Earth, a film where the only thing I remember about it is how forgettable it is. But to focus on the positive, the best movie moments move us in a positive way. They provide more than a target for snarky putdowns or jaw-dropping examples of complete incompetence. The best movie moments can inspire us, shock us, exhilarate us, and bring us absolute joy.
Adam, Dave, and Matt have written about five movie moments that jumped out at them in 2013. They’re unranked and there could have been far more selections, but these 15 moments are as good as any that came out this year. [Spoilers ahead, obviously]
