It’s time to look back at all of the movies that 2013 offered. A number of smash-hits delivered massive box office numbers in 2013 and several more films are poised for additional attention in the upcoming awards season (during the early month’s of 2014). Yet, in spite of broad critical acclaim or record breading ticket sales, some movies just resonated with the Screen Rant editorial. Since the entertainment industry is subjective, each year we present our individual Top 5 “Favorite” (not necessarily “Best”) movie offerings but this end of the year retrospective isn’t designed to put together a comprehensive list of award-contenders, it’s to share the movies that touched us, wowed us, and reminded us why we love this medium so very much.

Admittedly, some of the year’s “Best” movies won’t make all (or any) of our “Favorite” lists – so make sure to look over our movie review archive to find out what we thought of your own personal choices – as well as share your own Top 5 Favorite Movies of 2013 in the comments! You can also listen to us discuss our picks on the latest episode of the Screen Rant Underground podcast!

  1. I’m surprised Iron Man 3 isn’t on anyone’s list.

    • I’m not ;)

  2. I’m surprised not to see “12 Years a Slave” on anyone’s list.

    • @Gullermo – I thought that too at first, but seeing how this site seems to despise the film I’m really not surprised at all. I guess some people can’t stand to see films that hit you hard in the gut, they can’t take it or stand watching it.

  3. for me, my top 5 is:

    5. Star Trek Into Darkness
    4. Iron Man 3
    3. American Hustle
    2. The World’s End
    1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    i also have a tonne of honourable mentions, including: Catching Fire, Man of Steel, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Walter Mitty, Fast 6, Pacific Rim, Elysium and Thor 2, among others.

  4. 1. Wolf of Wall Street
    2. Her
    3. 12 Years a Slave
    4. The Spectacular Now
    5. Smaug

    6. Spring Breakers
    7. American Hustle
    8. Gravity
    9. John Dies at the End
    10. Short Term 12
    11. All is Lost

    I have a feeling that Nebraska and Llewyn Davis will knock a couple out of my top 5 when I see them. Doing that this week.

  5. Forgot to add, Man of Steel was 20 minutes of goodness followed by a load of crap. I’m so tired of seeing superheroes knock down buildings and fight 500 ft tall CGI monsters. Get creative,it isn’t like there isn’t plenty of source material. The Superman movies from the 80′s were all more likable.

  6. 1. The World’s End
    2. Gravity
    3. Rush
    4. Fruitvale Station
    5. Prisoners

  7. There are sorts of benefits to watching
    movies online as opposed to going to the cinema or extra cash that you
    haven’t got on the local blockbuster store. One of the very most standard video website with a pay as you go construction
    is known as i – Tunes. Then we got the Projection screen TV’s,that was the flat screen

  8. 1. 12 Years a Slave
    2. Gravity
    3. Philomena
    4. Frozen
    5. Prisoners

    Honourable Mentions: Saving Mr Banks, Captain Phillips, Blue is the Warmest Colour, The Conjuring, The World’s End, The Book Thief, The Wolf of War Street, Pacific Rim.

    Am yet to see Her, Nebraska, American Hustle, Dallas Buyers Club, Rush or The Hunt.

  9. Fantastic web site. A lot of helpful information here.
    I am sending it to some buddies ans additionally sharing in delicious.
    And obviously, thanks in your sweat!

  10. The main reason the Sun appears yellow fom Earth iss due to atmospheric scattering.
    They live in high, densely tangled canopies of trees in the
    Atlantic coastal forests of Brazil. Inspired by ourr discovery of the History Center we continued our learning experiernces at the Well’s
    Built Museum of African American History and Culture, followed up by a relaxing walk around Lake
    Eola, to take in a beautiful sunset.

  11. When some one searches for his vital thing, therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail, so that thing
    is maintained over here.

  12. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s equally educative and interesting, and let
    me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few men and women
    are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I
    stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding

  13. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I am inspired!
    Very helpful information specifically the closing section
    :) I handle such info much. I used to be looking for this particular info for a long time.
    Thank you and good luck.

  14. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site
    is great, as well as the content!

  15. Hurrah, that’s what I was exploring for, what a material!

    existing here at this blog, thanks admin of this web page.

  16. “Your Next” are you serious, one of the worst horror films I have seen for a while, I love many horror films but not this. Its dark humour was so bad, its jump moments were non existent, its plot completely unsurprising, its slow mo of the cop entering the house, were we supposed to have forgotten that she had booby trapped the door. Oh dear.
