Forums - Movies & TV - Best/Favourite film of 2023

As a Godzilla fan, it wasn't a surprise to me that Minus One was my favourite film of 2023, but what shocked me was that it's also the most well crafted film I saw in 2023.

While entertaining, most Godzilla films are uneven in terms of actual filmmaking quality. Minus One though is a brilliantly constructed story of facing and recovering from trauma, told with sincerity and maturity. That it also manages to be a wildly entertaining monster movie is the icing on an already delicious cake.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Dungeon & Dragons Honor Among Thieves, Mario, and John Wick 4.

Super Mario Bros The Movie

First time watching a movie from the theater in 5 years too.

Can I just vote for The Menu? That movie was awesome enough to take up two years :P

While I initially liked The Menu, but felt slightly disappointed by the end, I found it to remind me somewhat of "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover", which is, IMO, Greenway's finest work.

yeah, was kinda dark and over the top -

Spoiler!
wish a few more people got out, but at least the main chick gets out using her wits which I appreciated. And sort of a funny payoff with the text and closing minutes.

Anya Taylor Joy is such a badass in that movie and not bad on the eyes either!

Asteroid City was terrible.

I considered walking out of the theater.

I am a big fan of Wes Anderson's past works. But I hated his last three films, all of which I saw in theaters.

He has gone up his own ass as a director.

I haven't seen it yet, but this is exactly how I felt about The French Dispatch, now I'm worried...



I haven't seen that many films from 2023 tbh - only about 20 - and I've got a bit of a backlog. But from the ones I've seen so far here's my top 5:

 

1. The Killer - 8/10
