The Wolf Of Wall Street
Dropping a record number of f-bombs, and continuing to fuel discussion about whether or not it's condoning or indicting the wild behavior within it, "The Wolf Of Wall Street" is undeniably a wild ride. And yes, we know it's in theaters already, but in case you haven't caught up or just want a refresher on the madness of the movie, there's still a lot digest right at home.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio
For the past couple weeks, one of the running threads about Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" was that it was just too hardcore and raunchy for the (generally older) awards season voters. But don't tell that to the Producer's Guild—one of the best augurs of future Oscar glory—as they have nominated the movie along with a batch of others that have long been seen as surefire Best Picture contenders.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
As the debate rages about whether or not "The Wolf Of Wall Street" glorifies the misdeeds of sleazy Wall Street scumbags without offering consideration for the victims in their path, folks can perhaps rest assured that the real life Jordan Belfort won't make a dime off the movie or the book he wrote that it's based on (though he's already walked away with Leonardo DiCaprio filming a weird endorsement for the man himself).

The Wolf Of Wall Street
As Movies.com notes, "The Counselor," "The Family," "The Last Exorcism Part II," "Movie 43," "The Purge," "Runner Runner" and "Scary Movie 5" are the only movies this year that managed a lower grade than the C+ CinemaScore recently earned by "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's hardly the kind of company you'd expect to find the latest film from Martin Scorsese included with, but then again, nothing about 'Wolf' meets ordinary expectations.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Ferociously vulgar, outrageously funny, a film about excess that nearly ran four hours long that still features over 50 songs in the movie, there is nothing nuanced or subtle about Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's a go-for-broke, NC-17 skirting tale of debauchery that has left few feeling ambivalent about the picture. But if you've yet to sneak out of the family obligations and make it to the cinema to see this one for yourself, here are a few teases to get you moving. And if you have seen the flick, here's even more to dive into.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
We're in the last leg of the winter holidays and it shows at the box office with strong holdovers leading the pack. This weekend, in between Christmas and New Year's Eve, marks that wonderful time when whole families pile in droves to see those films they've been hearing so much about (Did you take Nana and Pop-Pop to see "August: Osage County"?), those who can escape to catch up on Oscar contenders. ("Her" is in limited release and well worth the drive) and an interesting third group reveling in the holiday cheer (not naming names, but we know someone over the age of 10 who saw "Frozen" for the third time).

The Wolf Of Wall Street
"The main thing about Marty's use of music is he's fearless, creatively fearless," music supervisor Randall Poster recently told THR about working on "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and he's certainly not kidding. While the official soundtrack release for the film features 16 songs, that's a mere drop in the water of the nearly 60 tunes licensed for the movie. As you might expect, the nearly three hour epic is packed with music with nary a frame going by without a song to go with it. And below we have a taste of just how wide-reaching the music goes and some of the key cuts that are missing from the store bought soundtrack.

The Most Memorable Movie Moments 2013
Can you feel it? The end of 2013 is hurtling toward us like a stampeding rhino. And as our year-end wind down is winding down, we're letting ourselves off the leash a little and assembling this unwieldy monster—an unashamedly scrappy and random list of The Most Memorable Movie Moments of the Year aka Every Damn Thing That We Couldn't Find Anywhere Else to Talk About. Those of you who like a little more formal rigor in your year-in-review programming may wish to check out Best Shots, or Best Music Moments, or Best Documentaries, or Best Soundtracks, or Best Scores or Action Sequences, Child Performances, TV Episodes, Worst Films… or really any of our other 2013 wrap-up features (just hit our "Best of 2013" tag) all of which were put together with about 83% more discipline than this one.

The Best Movie Music Moments Of 2013
As some of you may know, The Playlist started out way back as a music-influenced movie blog and while our horizons have expanded exponentially since then, we like to keep a finger in that pie, and hope that we’re never remiss in giving the often overlooked audio component of the cinemagoing experience its full due. This year we’ve already run two celebrations of music at the movies: our Best Soundtracks of 2013 and our Best Scores of 2013, but as much as we think they give a good overview, there’s still room to talk about those times when a film’s music has been so integral to a scene that it transcends the wider discussion of whether the whole soundtrack is good or bad, or even whether the movie is good or bad, and creates a small sliver of something special and memorable.
