Hey, Allnut back again. You watched over 160 films last year?! How much popcorn is that? Your latest batch of GS nominees are spot-on, as always. Thanks for reminding me that not all of the greats are released in the closing weeks of the year. I tend to get caught up in the last minute rush to see the quality stuff, but after reflecting on your GS list, I realized that my personal 2013 favs were "Mud", "Frances Ha" and "Before Midnight" -- all released earlier. Speaking of the later, am I right that the car scene with Jessie (Hawke), Celine (Delpy) and their twins was done entirely in one take? Amazing. Can't wait for "Before Noon" -- ha!

I'll be paying close attention to your winner in the "Best Animated Feature" category. Heck, the most fun I had at the movies all year was probably "Despicable Me 2"!

I'll sign off with my usual plea for you to post more often -- don't wait until GS 2014! Best, Allnut
