Behind the Candelabra (2013)

Steven Soderbergh is in an odd position when it comes to his supposedly last film ever. After American film studios chose not to fund a no-holds-barred look at Liberace's private life just in case it came across as a bit too gay, it became necessary for HBO to step in to back the adaptation of Scott Thorson's account of his five year relationship with the superstar pianist. Therefore, we are in the odd position of this potentially being Soderbergh's last film outside the US only. It also means that neither its director nor its stars will have any chance to receive Oscar nominations for their work here.

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

I set out a promise to you, dear readers, before I continue: I promise I will try as hard as I can to make sure this doesn't just descend into my ramblings concerning the attractiveness of Benedict Cumberbatch. It'll be hard. He is one of the most beautiful men I've ever seen and his voice should come with some sort of parental guidance. Seriously this film should have been rated a 15 just because of how erotic all of his lines sound. Not since the days of Jack Bauer has someone sounded quite so sexy whilst threatening to kill a bunch of people. But here I am falling into the same old trap.
