Best Movies of 2013

The Top Ten

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Product Image

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

Seriously? While I do think there are good things about this film, it is not great at all, especially since all the problems from the first film have not only not been fixed, but have either remained or worsened. The acting from the main leads is still wooden, the social commentary is still painfully obvious and badly done, the characters are under developed and a rather poor Hunger Games. However, the great acting from the supporting cast, the strong production values and a really neat twist at the end elevate a rather poor film to an average one. So while not bad, this is nowhere near the best film of 2013.

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!

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.

Despicable Me 2 Despicable Me 2 Product Image

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.

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!

I like the movie a lot. A good sequel to the first one. The only thing that ruined it for me is the fact that my little brother and sister like to watch the dumbest movies OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I'm serious, there was this movie that they liked (it didn't even make it to theaters it was so bad. I could see why) that was called something like "Dragon Hunters" or something. It had a horrible storyline and the entire world was literally just a bunch of floating islands and stuff like that. If you've ever played Skylanders or Zelda: Skyward Sword, then you will know what I'm talking about. You couldn't even get a hint as to why the islands were floating, and they didn't even acknowledge the fact that floating islands were somewhat odd and never said anything that would give you even a clue as to why the islands were floating. The point is, this was an absolutely horrible movie (and the little girl was incredibly annoying), yet, ...more

Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3 Product Image

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.

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.

Such a dumb plot twist and Pepper Potts absorbs some energy. It's stupid. Best part was showing the human side to Tony rather than focusing on the suit.

Gravity Gravity Product Image

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.

Gravity is an absolute, magnificent masterpiece. Terrific in every aspect. A captivating and intense film with spellbinding visuals from beginning to end. And the soundtrack is simply breathtaking. A pulse-pounding thrill ride that grabbed me from the start and consistently amazed me.

Man of Steel Man of Steel Product Image

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

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.

Man of Steel sucks. Zack Snyder is horrible. He has made some of the worst movies ever - MOS , BvS, Justice League, Sucker Punch etc.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Product Image

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

This movie was insanely good should be no1

Fast & Furious 6 Fast & Furious 6 Product Image

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!

This is the best movie EVER MADE I literally watch this every day and I almost love this more than the colts, and that's a-lot you guys are crazy for not making this #1 BEST MOVIE EVER

The Wolf of Wall Street

Phenomenal. A movie for the ages with a tour-de-force lead performance by Leonardo DiCaprio. Unforgettable. And, without a doubt, the best comedy of the 21st century thus far.

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.

Monsters University Monsters University Product Image

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

"Pixar has yet to disappoint me" tell that to cars 2 and the good dinosaur and finding dory - B1ueNew

Feeling nostalgic about this one

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

Very good movie. A lot like Animal House, which is a top 15 favorite comedy for me, it had funny characters and great future references to Monsters Inc

12 Years a Slave 12 Years a Slave Product Image

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?

For heavens sake why is MOS and Hobbit 2 in the top ten. And why is despicable me 2 at 3, that film is lazy and boring. This is a perfect film in every way

The Contenders

Star Trek: Into Darkness Star Trek: Into Darkness Product Image

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..

I could probably vote something I prefer down in the list, But out of the movies I saw this is definitely the best. Awesome acting (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) awesome space visuals, and incredibly awesome music that I just can't stop humming to myself

Pacific Rim Pacific Rim Product Image

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

The movie this year! It has one of the most amazing actions scenes! Id love to see it again n the soundtrack is just awesome! Best movie of 2012

World War Z World War Z Product Image

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!

This is my favorite movie not only of the year, but also for Brad. He has really evolved from being big screen eye candy to a serious actor and this is one of his latest works to confirm it. It not only provides a new spin on the normal zombie fare, but also has a great message in how having courage and working together can help solve some of humanity's biggest problems.

The Wolverine The Wolverine Product Image

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!

Some good action sequences and as always a great performance out of Jackman but a generic, rushed love story with and an overly long middle sequence with a cartoonish finale leaves this film in tatters. There was potential here but overall it's basically a failure. 6/10.

The World's End The World's End Product Image

Who needs Sandra Bullock dying in space when you can have Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in an epic pub crawl?

With an all star cast of Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The new film from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The final part of their so called Three Flavours Cornetto series.

Brilliant all around. Great characters, story, action & even some well written social commentary thrown in there for good measure. This for me is the best out of the Cornetto trilogy, simply because it is the most maturely written, and as such the drama & emotional stuff is the most authentic and works the best here.

Captain Phillips Captain Phillips Product Image

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!

Explain something to me! How come iron man 3 is at number 2 and films like captain phillips and 12 years a slave are on 15th and 17th position? This world is full of stupid punks, I see! Disappointed of the choices you guys are making!

This Is the End This Is the End Product Image

Funniest movie to come out since the Anchorman

One of the funniest movies ever

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

I love this movie. Hilarious! The devil's dick get's chopped off. More funny than any other movie I've seen.

The Conjuring The Conjuring Product Image

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 am a horror movie buff, and almost never scared, but this. movie. scared. me. It is so well done, well casted, well scripted, and SO creepy! I just got an icky feeling, that feeling that makes you sleep with the lights on, but still whispers to you that the light won't save you. The use of the hide and clap game is genius, if anyone ever really wanted to scare the daylights out of me, that is all they would have to do. I think this movie is an icon in the making. This will go down as one of the best horror films ever made.

Now You See Me Now You See Me Product Image

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.

Oh my god! I've watched this movie only a million times! Best movie right after The Princess Bride. Such amazing personalities that fit the characters. And such an unexpected ending. Love it!

Prisoners Prisoners Product Image

This film left me exhausted! Rarely does a thriller of this magnitude come along. I sat through the end credits in awe and I bought the blu-ray as soon as it came out. The performances are exceptional, just astonishing. The editing, soundtrack and the cinematography by Roger Deakins are absolutely stunning. The story is told masterfully. It's a dark, gritty, suspenseful, disturbing and incredibly immersive viewing experience. Gyllenhaal's detective character is one of the most fascinating of its kind and portrayed beautifully along with the rest of the cast. I couldn't find a single flaw in any of the performances. Superbly made and acted. Favorite film of the year for sure.

This list shouldn't exist yet because excellent films like Prisoners and Captain Phillips have just come out and wont get very high because they are so recent, anyway Prisoners was the best movie of the year so far because it was brutal and gritty and had brilliant acting like a British crime drama.

I take it that the only reason this is so far down is because it was only released one week ago. But honestly, as a man person who watches movies on a daily basis. This is the best movie you could ask to see all year! You won't regret watching it!

How is this not on this list? Twists and turns at every scene with a cliffhanger that keeps your imagination flowing. I loved it.

American Hustle

Impeccably acted, gripping and immensely entertaining. American Hustle showcases great humor, terrific dialogue and a cameo that is absolutely perfect. Such a cool and stylish film. Consistently captivating with plenty of well-made and fascinating characters. And the soundtrack is just superb, it's perfect. American Hustle is of the highest quality on every level. A film I can't wait to watch again.

This film is good and is a masterpiece. The movie Serena is garbage, not this awesome film.

This movie has a spectacular cast, a truly great script and is consistently entertaining. Definitely needs to be higher

I watched this on the plane to New York so I didn't have the best experience watching this. But from what I watched and heard this is an brilliantly acted, amazingly written with a surprisingly funny script. Top marks to amy Adams, Bradley cooper and jennifer Lawrence, who gives such a brillant, funny and moving performance, easily stealing the show, as ever


I don't know if I care enough to be bothered that an outright masterpiece is ranked 44 spots below Iron Man 3 (considering I also love guilty pleasures like Iron Man 3 and Fast 6)... But I do know that you're all missing out on something staggeringly good. Don't do that to yourselves, folks. Watch Her. It's the best film of the year, hands down. It might be the best in as many years.

I can't believe Her is at 40th place! And Iron Man 3 is first! (Not that I don't love Iron Man. I do love it, but I love Her even more). There is NOT a BETTER STORY than Her. I haven't seen such an awesome and different movie in such a long long time. Sad that it is in 40th place. :(

This movie is below Grown Ups 3? Oh god..

Please do yourselves a favor and watch Her. I came out overwhelmed, and couldn't stop crying. this movie is beautiful, and I feel like anyone who's been in love can relate to it and find beauty in it somewhere. It's art.

How the actual hell is Iron Man 3 first!?

Oz the Great and Powerful Oz the Great and Powerful Product Image

I Love This Movie The Magical And Fantasy Effects Plus There's A Song There Which Voiced Like Mariah Carey The Song Was Beautiful I don't Know If That Was Mimi

Its production design is awesome. And we can watch it for james franco and the visual effects are too good.

It's a great film, but let down by Mila munis ( pre witch ) Michelle Williams cheesiness ( but she was good) and a few script errors.

How powerful and neat actors and a great director

Dallas Buyers Club Dallas Buyers Club Product Image

I have never seen better actors in my life. So committed to their work. The story is also mind-blowing. Now THOSE should be the representers of fighters.

Sensational acting, great story, VERY WELL ACTED!

Under man of steel and grown up 2... Where's the world going to

This is one of the best movies of all time of you ask me.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Product Image

It's Anchorman! Enough said!

Anchorman enough said definitely a top 10

This film is just plain hilarious and got me laughing every minute. One of my favourite squeals.

One of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I had tears in my eyes watching it in the theater.
