Top 10 films of 2013

See also

As the classic New Year’s song “Auld Lang Syne” asks us, “should old acquaintance be forgot?” Well, in the case of the films of 2013, the answer is a resounding no. 2013 brought so many wonderful tales to the screen, from indie gems to first class blockbusters, which will be around for quite some time. Big name actors and directors turned out career bests and unknowns emerged to cinema’s delight. Cutting it all to a final ten is no easy feat.

Though before we get to that, let me cheat a little and give you some honorable mentions that just missed out of my personal favorite. These films could make their own top ten and still be a great representation of what 2013 had to offer.

Honorable Mentions (in alphabetical order):
- 12 Years a Slave
- American Hustle
- August: Osage County
- Blue Jasmine
- Fruitvale Station
- Lone Survivor
- Mud
- Side Effects
- Star Trek Into Darkness
- The Way, Way Back
- The World’s End
