2013 Monday Movie Show Award Winners

Another year is about to come to a close and it’s probably the best time to look over what this year has brought us.

Yes we still suck at sport no matter what it is, we are still in a rescission where the government says we are fine however we know that we are still screwed, the videogame industry saw two new consoles released and people still complain oh and most music still sucks.

However we are not here to look over that annoying stuff we are here to celebrate the best and worst of 2013 in the wonderful world of films.  So me and Andrew got our heads together and came up with what we think deserve a couple of awards, yes there were some arguments (i still have the bruisers) but we finally came to an agreement and the awards can be viewed below.

There wasn’t much of a challenge from any of the new films this week on last weeks number one, Prisoners, as it has managed to hold on to the top spot for it’s third week.

Two new films went into the lower end of this weeks chart, first off going in at number seven was Le Week End, the highest new entry went to the Fifth Estate which only managed to go into the number six spot.

Well it seems that Insidious chapter 2 scared off it’s audience as it no longer reigns supreme at the top of the chart, that accolade has gone to last weeks number two Rush which is now the new king of the chart.

A pretty bad week for new release as none of them managed to make any kind of impact on the top 10.  Firstly going in at a low number eight was thriller The Call starring Halle Berry, hitting the number seven spot was Men in Black rip off R.I.P.D.  This weeks highest new entry went to drama Diana, the film got a major roasting from critics so it’s a wonder that it managed to go in at number five.

New Releases – Again it’s another quiet week when it comes to new films as you only have two too choose from, thriller Prisoners and a second thriller in the form of Runner Runner.
