I was skeptical as I walked into the theater to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. After seeing early trailers for the film, I felt let down. What I saw was something that looked more like the Avengers than any Star Trek movie or TV show that I’ve seen. As J.J. Abrams has showed us before, this is not Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek. But that’s okay. As I watched the opening sequence and got to experience Kirk and crew violating the Prime Directive, I wondered if that was a metaphor for what Abrams was doing with the series.

As the year winds down to a close, for most movie fans like me, this is the most thrilling time of the year. 2013 has been, at the very least, a very entertaining year with some critical and crowd-pleasing gems, some with controversy and some with a lack of fanfare/box-office bombs. Looking ahead on what’s to come, Here’s my list of twelve Fall/Winter 2013 films that I am most excited to see, starting with the month of October. The reason for the number twelve is because I tried to narrow down to ten, which I couldn’t, and then I tried to narrow the list down to fifteen and being the overachiever I am, I kept it short with twelve. I will include brief synopses and poster for each film, courtesy of imdb.com.
