The Top TenXW

1The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

! The book was amazing, and I'm so excited to FINALLY watch the movie. It's going to be amazing! Can't wait. - zebra10101

Catching Fire followed the story-line of the book than The Hunger Games. A few parts were left out (such as the training scores and when Bonnie and Twill tell Katniss about district 13 and uprisings in district 8). The movie should be number 1 and I give it 5 stars! - ahogeboom

Amazing movie. Best book adaptation I have ever seen. everybody played their respective roles perfectly. More intense action sequences, the stakes were much higher, and overall the movie left us wishing there was more.

Still I haven't see

2Iron Man 3

Bigger, better, funnier and yet the darkest of all three Iron Man movies. The acting is top notch, especially from Robert Downey Jr who brings his A game for this explosive finale. The action scenes are brilliantly well-crafted and the soundtrack is great. Even when the action isn't present there's a lot to enjoy in Iron Man 3.

Please get "Warm Bodies, "A Good Day to Die Hard", "Oz the Great and Powerful", and "The Last Stand" out from in front of this movie. They deserve no such grace. - BKAllmighty

Third time's the charm in this high octane fuelled, action packed rollercoaster of a ride. You come for the splosions but stay for Robert Downey Jr's witty and charismatic performance.

Definitely should be #1

3Despicable Me 2

This deserves to be in number 1 or number 2. VERY FUNNY movie. VERY VERY nice storyline and very diverse audience target. It can be enjoyed by kids, teenagers and adults and even oldies can appreciate the movie. - rampelstiltskintribalkingston

The most awesome movie EVER! It deserves to be on the top of the list!

Great movie for kids and adults.It has comedy, romance, and some action too!

At least its not the beast movie ever or even one of the best.

4Gravity

This movie is absolutely brilliant. As several real astronauts have already stated, "It's the closest feeling to space that you'll ever get." The story, acting, an visual effects make it one of my favorites of 2013.

I understand that since the movie is new to theatres it is way behind on the list. By the end of the year, this film deserves to be #1. Man of Steel has got nothing on this!

The last time a notable wide-released, live-action film was rated 97% or higher on rotten tomatoes was in 1997 when L.A. confidential came out. It is also the first film since Inception to get a spot in IMDB's top 50. This is definitely 2013's best film.

Iron man 3, although a great movie, wasn't even the best movie when it came out.

Captain Phillips should be in the top five. It would have been the my favorite film of the year if Gravity didn't exist.

Amazing. Loved it. Should be higher up in this list.

5The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

That moment when the movie does not disappoint your impressions about the book

It came out in the quite end of the year, but the best movie of 2013. liked it even more than the previous one, even though I couldn't imagine that'd be possible. I can't believe it hasn't even fit in not in the top 5, but the top 10 either! Shame on you people! This one can't even be mentioned on one page with The Hunger Games...

This movie hasn't even come out yet, but it definitely looks AWESOME

Why is this #5? I've watched this about 10 times in one year. Good grief, I EXERCISE while watching it! If I tried to do that watching the Hunger Games I'd fall over.

6Man of Steel

Absolutely amazingly epic and immensely entertaining. When it comes to such an iconic and loved character it's hard to please everyone. But oh boy, this is the one I've been waiting for! Where do I even start? Visually stunning and full of carnage. Krypton is depicted beautifully. Loved the tone and pacing of the film. The soundtrack is definitely one of Hans Zimmer's best, it's incredible. Superbly crafted action sequences and spectacle. A joy to watch from start to finish. It has become a favorite and will be viewed many times to come. Also, Faora in Man of Steel is undoubtedly one of the best female villains. All in all, it's a super exciting and intense movie with excellent performances and is surely amongst the top of the best superhero and action movies.

I was actually pretty disappointed in Man of Steel...Oh Well maybe one day they'll get it right - tommy32

Iron Man 3 is a good movie, but the storyline was just too predictable (except for who the Mandarin really is. ) But Man of Steel on the other hand, had real characters, a good storyline and not as much unnecessary humor.

Screw all the haters

7Fast & Furious 6

One of the best of the year! Insanely fun and entertaining with amazing action and humor. Extremely well-filmed and directed. Luke Evans was a great and menacing villain. Loved every single minute of it and will surely watch it over and over again. "THEY GOT A TANK! "

Great movie & series!

AWESOME Movie! Deserves to be on this list!

Great movie my favorite of all. I own all of them the only in my life to surpass Tombstone

8Star Trek: Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness has it all! Everything works perfectly. The acting is just as great as in the reboot and maybe even better. But the addition of Benedict Cumberbatch has added it to a whole new level. Incredible action scenes and awesome soundtrack. The entire film is just a visual marvel with heart and soul. A movie to watch from start to finish on multiple viewings.

This sequel to 2009's Star Trek reboot is even better than the first. More room for character development, fantastic action set pieces, Benedict Cumberbatch. Need I say more?

If you don't think this is the best movie of the year then you obviously haven't seen it. The fact that Man of Steel (Relentless action, Lois Lane always knows where Superman is, etc.) and Iron Man 3 (so many plot holes you couldn't fit a tooth pick through them) are higher than this is beyond me... I've lost faith in humanity..

Great movie. The best of the year.

9World War Z

Incredible movie! The most intense and exciting experience in a while. An absolute masterpiece of suspenseful entertainment. Loved everything about World War Z.
Excellent direction and great acting. Extremely well filmed, edited and paced. The soundtrack is terrific as well. An enthralling movie with substance. A definite favorite and I will surely watch it again and again. It's so damn great!

What is awesomest then a zombie apocalypse movie that actually shows the beginning of an apocalypse with brad Pitt! Best zombie film and movie in 2013 ever!

2nd favourite film of all time! The thrill of it and the atmosphere and idea is extra ordinary and the soundtrack by muse is just perfect! - LukeBlundell

More entertaining than Gravity.

10Monsters University

Pixar has yet to disappoint me!

This prequel was superb! It really builds up the background for Monsters Inc. So many questions that I had from the first movie were answered in this.

Great visuals, voice acting, and plot; it wasn't at all cheesy or predictable. A perfect movie for the family and kids, or even the occasional reminiscing teen - CharmCaster5

Feeling nostalgic about this one - vriskaserket

Although it is a kids movie is way better than Man of steel in my opinion

I loved how it kept the spirit and humor style of the original along with adding in the college theme and adding in plenty of Easter eggs and explanations for diehard fans, along with still being a good moving and not feeling like a load of exposition.

The Contenders

11Pacific Rim

The giant fanbase and internet craze over this movie told me that this movie was something to watch. So I watched it. And it was ' awesome. Usually, movies with this theme have a poor storyline that falls apart in the first half. However, Pacific Rim managed to keep it, along with extreme action that makes you want to jump off your seat and start imitating the Gypsy.

A blockbuster masterpiece! Visually stunning and filled with astonishing action set-pieces. Extremely well-made and terrifically paced. I was thoroughly entertained and can watch it again and again. The soundtrack must be mentioned, it was amazing and just perfect. The chemistry between the characters works and the story is coherent. An epic thrill-ride of a movie that never ceased to amaze me. Love Pacific Rim!

Pacific Rim Is the best for me.. Full of Clash! :D

When my parents say that a movie is bad, they don't let me watch it. This is what happened with Pacific Rim. I really wanted to see it though. - username34

12The Conjuring

The Conjuring. The movie that made me piss my own pants. If anyone is looking for a REALLY good horror movie that is better than Paranormal Activity, give this movie a try. It will surely keep you on the edge of your seats

Seriously, this movie should be definitely included in the top ten. I mean I love a couple of movies that are listed here, but this movie was what really struck me that it changed my outlook in life...and made me piss my pants and kept me up all night. It's a great horror movie not only because of the effects that would definitely make you crap bricks, but because it is based on a true story, which made it even a lot creepier.

Anyone want to play Hide and Clap? I certaintly would NOT. It's a very chilling movie, and once you watch it, you will never forget it!

I latterly couldn't take a shower with out thinking about it

13The Wolverine

Simply amazing! Visually stunning, exciting, stylish and dark. The Wolverine at his best! Breathtaking action sequences (and there are plenty of them). Great story and pacing. Never a dull moment. Perfect direction and terrific acting. The dialogue is surprisingly very well done and they don't hold back on the action and violence. The soundtrack is awesome as well. Definitely one of the best films this year, can't wait to watch it again. The Wolverine fires on all cylinders!

Number 1 without a doubt

One moment Mr.Jackman was singing like a girl in Les Miserables and now he is in one of the best action movies of the year!

This was my favourite movie with wolverine in it so far it was perfect

14The Wolf of Wall Street

A masterpiece! Brilliant performances and excellent direction. The Wolf of Wall Street is a stylish, darkly hilarious and explosively entertaining film. The soundtrack is terrific as well and fits like a glove. Endless streams of outstanding sequences and great dialogue. Can't wait to watch this amazing film again. Might be one of my favorite movies of all time now.

This was a fantastic movie. People tend to overlook it because of its grotesquely realistic look into the life of high rolling Americans, but it was superbly written, directed, and cast. The fact that Leo was pushed aside for the Best Actor Oscar is still a tragedy. The depth, fun, and emotion displayed in this movie, enhanced by the unrivaled soundtrack. Scorsese brought us a wonderful and truly spectacular piece of film history and it is a shame that it is not recognized more widely as such.

These lists are terrible.. Most movies above this are rubbish. People need to watch real movies not sum eye candy (pacific rim) this was a masterpiece along with Dallas buyers club. They are real movies.. Were the Miller's ahead of this is a joke. People don't know good acting anymore. Just go for big budget CGI crap.. This is a throwback to real acting and directing.

Its one of the greatest movie I have ever seen

1512 Years a Slave

How in the hell is this not top 10? I love iron man and man of steel as much as all of you, but those movies are fun. sometimes we need more than just fun we need movies that make us emotional with performances that move us and when we come out crying we know we have just seen a piece of art and that is what this movie is! ART!

A most profound depiction of the American history; bold performances and script, gorgeous photography and elegant art direction aside, the film provides perhaps the most realistic depiction of slavery you can hope for.

Wow, this masterpiece below the Mediocre double punches Man Of Steel and Iron Man 3 and the truly god awful Grown Ups 2. Who votes here 14 year olds?

How is this not on the top spot? - farckashkun

16Now You See Me

This film is AMAZING! Everything in the film happened for a reason and it truly leaves you guessing at every turn. Nothing ever happens as expected. Great effects and very clever plot too. I am so surprised it isn't higher, should be top 10! Watch this before you vote for another!

This movie is absolutely awesome. I could not help but smiling at the end then getting angry because it ended. They're making a second one that I'm unsure of. Let's face it you should never make a sequel to absolutely awesome movies like that. Can't wait to watch it though

This movie should be under top ten. The movie is not predictable.

This. Movie. Is. So. Cool

17Captain Phillips

Absolutely brilliant! Without a doubt one of the years best. Incredibly intense and exceptionally well-crafted. Excellent performances, especially from Tom Hanks giving one of his best portrayals in a while. The cinematography is terrific and the soundtrack is superb and captivating. Riveting from start to finish, and I will surely watch it many times to come. Exciting, suspenseful, entertaining and emotional. Captain Phillips will be a strong Oscar contender. Simply an amazing film.

The best movie I have seen in a long time. Definitely deseverses a high position rather than Iron Man 3 which was a terrible movie compared to others this year or even Iron Man 1. Captain Phillips was one of the greatest movies I have seen with awesome acting by Tom Hanks (as usual).

Amazing! Definitely deserves the number one spot! - RogertheDumpling

Tom Hanks another masterpiece!

18This Is the End

Funniest movie to come out since the Anchorman

Funniest movie I have ever seen in my whole entire life! LMFAO the whole time

One of the funniest movies ever

By far the most genuine and originally funny movie I've seen in a LONG time...

19Frozen

Frozen was the best movie out of the whole Disney princess series! The story was magical, the songs were amazing, and the scenes were hilarious! You've got to be crazy not to vote this number 1! I'm definitely buying this movie when it comes out!

Frozen isn't even in the Disney princess series. Elsa is a queen not a princess. And the movie sucked. - SammySpore

This movie deserves to be at #1, the story is fantastic, the animation is some of the best computer animation that Disney made, the characters are lovable and the songs are unforgettable. It's the best movie I ever saw in theaters (I went to see it with my girlfriend and it's one of my best memories) best movie of 2013, and one of my favorite movies along with other movies made by Walt Disney Animation Studios or Pixar laugh out loud. GET THIS AT #1 PEOPLE!

This movie placed this place is probably because of it's late released in the year and didn't get many vote as the other movie. However, I believe is this movie were to release in the beginning of the year, it will be at the top for the rest of that year!

Lol, the post of the movie is wrong (i completely disagree this movie)

This movie should be in top 10, I can't believe I am seeing millers at 20th position. this movie give a hell of things to laugh... in my opinion this is one of the best comedy movies of 2013

Should be in top ten
