Temporal Top Ten – 2013


2013

top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 186
Number of movies reviewed – 233 (Including 47 Encore Reviews)

2013 was my first year blogging, so as you can see by the stats most of the movies seen also have a review.

The list differs slightly from my year end top ten because time changes one’s perspective and because I’ve seen a few new films from this year since then.

You will also notice that very few of the Oscar Best Picture Nominees appear here including the eventual winner.

My favorites differ extremely from the Academy completely and I think that my #1 really should have won the coveted statue.

Updated 4 Sep 2018 – Blue is the Warmest Color is now my #5, all subsequent films have been moved down

    • I really liked catching fire before I read the book and afterwards it dropped like a stone because the adaptation was so off. I liked the first half of CP but felt the second half just wasn’t as strong. Perhaps I should rewatch it soon. Never too many my friend! You shoukd see #2 but be forewarned there is virtually no dialogue so its like watching a silent movie where u get to hear the sounds of the ocean. #6 just felt nostalgic for an 80’s kid like me

      • Really? I thought I’d heard Catching Fire was pretty faithful to the book (which I still have yet to read). I agree that the end of CP was too drawn out, but it was still tense and Tom Hanks should have gotten at least a nomination. As for All Is Lost, I don’t mind no dialogue. Some of the best scenes of Castaway were wordless.

  1. It surprises me on how few of these agree. The only one I didn’t like at all was Before Midnight, but the rest wouldn’t (and didn’t) break my Top Ten. Only Blackfish and Frozen even approach it, honestly.

    I think most of them solid flicks, to be sure, but not great ones.

    Interesting.
