Best Movies of 2013

161 Sunshine On Leith

Once upon a time (mostly in the 1960s) musicals were the big tentpole movies for studios. They were everywhere; West Side Story, The Music Man, My Fair Lady, Oliver and so on to the point that musicals fell out of favour (thanks a lot Easy Rider).

Ironically in an age of superheroes, giant monsters and robots, teen fiction and rowdy comedies, it was refreshing to see a feel good musical come out (in the UK) in 2013.

Sunshine on Leith, while not as visually stunning as the big blockbusters, will actually hold up a lot better than the likes of Pacific Rim.

Sunshine on Leith shows the likes of Pitch Perfect and Mamma Mia just how to do a jukebox musical properly.

Keep a look out for a cameo from Craig and Charlie Reid aka The Proclaimers walking out of a pub

Cynics out there will likely refer to Sunshine on Leith as McMamma Mia. This does for the Proclaimers songbook what Mamma Mia did for the ABBA songbook.

If you know anything about The Proclaimers you could go "ok someone will go to America to send back a letter (Letter from America) someone will be on a journey from misery to happiness (I'm on my Way), someone will be called (Oh Jean) who probably (Should have been Loved) and someone will promist to walk (500 miles). It doesn't matter about predictability because you'll be smiling throughout and maybe singing along to 500 Miles.

The last time a British musical was this heartwarming was Oliver! And that was back in the late 60s.

The feel-good movie of 2013. Or at least as far as the British are concerned.

167 Oblivion

Oblivion is a perfectly entertaining sci-fi movie. It's visually stunning, and the soundtrack is awesome, very retro but modern and futuristic as well. Great action and performances throughout. A pretty cool and interesting film.

Oblivion is one of the best movies of the entire year. Definitely the best movie to come out in the summer of 2013.

I admit it was a little confusing but way cool, tom cruise and morgan freeman

121! it should be at least 50 - zxm

170 Riddick

Great Movie... Best Sci-fi In 2013

171 One Direction: This Is Us

A group of girls make a band and follow their dreams?

This is extremely controversial, I know, but fans will most likely love this movie, while non-fans will not exactly love it. When I saw it, most of the girls were crying by the end. One Direction are remarkable.

It was honestly an amazing movie! Everyone should watch it as it really shows who these boys really are. Love you boys!

Best movie with the best songs!

172 Chennai Express

An amazing film with action, comedy, drama, emotion, romance and all other possible elements in an Indian film. the movie has a strong message about the rights of women in her family. I really love the movie very much and enjoy watching the movie. the king, Shahrukh Khan and Deepika were fabulous in the movie.

This should go up the list it was much much better than Raanjhanaa and earned a lot of money worldwide and broke lot of box office records

173 Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo?
174 Main Hoon Shahid Afridi

Best movie on Cricket. Must watch movie guys

175 Only God Forgives

A mesmerizing experience. Definitely not a film for everyone. It's violent, disturbing and surreal at times. The atmosphere throughout is very dark and eerie. Only God Forgives is visually stunning and stylish. Also the soundtrack is wonderfully dark and cool. A brilliantly crafted film and one of my favorites of the year.

176 Grand Masti
177 The Lunchbox

It won the critics' award for best film at Cannes and received a standing ovation for 10 minutes! THE sweetest tale of love with an old-world charm.

178 Pee Mak

Best Horror + Romantic + Comedy Movie of All Time.

Very funny and modern

179 The Counselor

Ridley Scott - Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz & Cameron Diaz. Violent, sexy & cool. Enough said.

180 Escape Plan

Your momma really knew how to polish a helmet!
