Top Ten Movies of 2013 with the Best Special Effects

This list compiles the movies released in 2013 that amazed us most with their dazzling special effects.

The Top Ten

1 Gravity

If this movie didn't win the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, I would have eaten my shoe. - BKAllmighty

Didn't it get 7 oscars and one of them was for Visual Effects.yeah so my vote goes for it. - zxm

2 Star Trek Into Darkness

A lot of fans hated on this film for its (arguably) excessive referencing (to 'The Wrath of Khan'). I certainly don't think anyone was complaining about the quality of the effects, though. - BKAllmighty

3 Pacific Rim

This movie honestly didn't even need a good story. I would have loved it if it was nothing more than giant robots fighting monsters for two hours. - BKAllmighty

4 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

There was A LOT of CGI in this film. Thank goodness it was top-notch CGI. - BKAllmighty

Smaug the dragon was just stunning! - Olive855

5 Iron Man 3

It's a Marvel movie. The effects are going to be spectacular. - BKAllmighty

6 Man of Steel

I didn't love this movie but I soaked in the visuals like a sponge. - BKAllmighty

7 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The franchise peaked with 'Catching Fire', sadly. The same can be said for its special effects. This was the Alpha Dog of the franchise. - BKAllmighty

8 Elysium

I was a bit critical of this film when I went to see it (partially because it wasn't on-par with 'District 9', Neil Blomkamp's first film - and partially because it was so similar to 'Oblivion', which was released earlier in the year). The one thing that I knew I loved right away was the effects, however. - BKAllmighty

9 Thor: The Dark World

Again, it's a Marvel movie. You know what you're getting. - BKAllmighty

10 G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Forgive me, but I actually found this movie to be very enjoyable. It was brainless, candy-coated action and it looked great. Loved it. - BKAllmighty

I actually like the G.I. Joe movies. They're just fun to watch. - Mcgillacuddy

11 The Lone Ranger
12 Oz the Great and Powerful
