  1. Looking Back at a Banner Year for the Silver Screen

    While there was no consensus for the film of the year, ”12 Years a Slave’s” harrowing portrayal of Solomon Northup’s abduction and bondage brought viewers to tears. ”Pacific Rim” revitalized the monster movie in ways only Godzilla could imagine. The Coens even returned and met expectations with the darkly comedic ”Inside Llewyn Davis.” But the film we will likely remember in future decades is the space thriller ”Gravity,” with special effects that justify the IMAX experience in a way no feature has before. Go find the biggest screen possible, and prepare for 90 minutes with your heart in your throat.
