Top 10 Movies of 2013

We’ve already posted the best games and the best supercars of 2013. The time has come now to go down the list of the best movies released in this awesome year, and… it’s a tough one, with drama flicks, indie movies, and instant Disney hits. I don’t know how your list looks like, but here’s our version of it.

10. Frozen

In case you haven’t seen this beauty yet,  we can tell you that this animated movie is about two royal sisters and it’s just stuffed with toe-tapping music, bright humor and cool graphics to heat up your hands and heart after the coldest of days.

9. 12 Years a Slave

The brutal – yet true – story a free man (Chiwetel Ejiofor) forced into slavery before the Civil War; this movie will show you an engrossing and important history lesson. Hope you pay attention.

8. Before Midnight

It’s been 18 years but everybody still enjoys Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and the way they look on screen. Now in their 40s, the couple debates fidelity, kids and death in idyllic Greece.

7. American Hustle

Even though it was one of my favorite movies of the year, it comes just on the 7th place. American Hustle tells the story of a rollicking and stylish crime caper, and who better to tell it than Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale? Awesome cast and guess what? Even more awesome movie.

6. Captain Phillips

As all good movies, this one’s based on a true story about the survival on the seas. You’ll have to watch the movie for more because I really think words don’t do justice to this movie.

5. Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen is back with a sardonic and brilliant take on relationships that collapse under the weight of deception. Cate Blanchett is Jasmine and even though you’d probably seen movies like this one ’til now, we can assure you that the script is surprisingly original.

4. Enough Said

Weary, middle-aged L.A. divorcée (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) dates weary, middle-aged L.A. divorcé (James Gandolfini). That’s enough for a sparkling comedy that will make you smile and laugh for over an hour.

3. Fruitvale Station

Michael B. Jordan’s moving performance as a doomed young father in this gut-wrenching drama is impressive. Oscars, I hope you’re paying attention because this movie is a true masterpiece.

2. Her

The unique, enlightening romance between a lonely man and his fully functional computer system resonates long after the screen goes black. Sounds weird but it’s really funny!

1. Gravity

The space odyssey of Sandra Bullock is thrilling, to say the least. I hope it ends down to earth. Now let’s see your picks!
