Just in time for Oscar: Ranked list of 2013’s top 30 films
See if you agree with Ron’s ranked list of the Top 30 films of 2013–plus his worst films and why. Let us know in the comments–which film did you think was best and worst and why?
For me though, nothing matched 12 Years a Slave. Brutally honest and hard to watch (as reported by the LA Times here), but necessary for people in this country to see.
“12 Years a Slave”
“The Wolf of Wall Street”
“Dallas Buyers Club”
Extremely violent, loud, and definitely a Disney movie not for children. Or anyone else for that matter.
I love Robert Downey, Jr., but they’ve decided not to give him any clever dialogue and have things just blow up every few minutes instead. I also was not impressed with The Great Beauty; too “artsy.” At times beautiful to look at, but that was about it.
only for Terrence Malick fanatics. I am one.
at least it got some kids to read the book.
This man—a real life person—manipulated and stole from not only rich people, but poor people also, in order to fund his corrupt, hedonistic lifestyle. The movie seems to posit that many, many people want to be like him. I hope not. Well made film, but what’s the point?
I really liked the animation and the story, but I wasn’t excited about all the songs which seemed to come at the beginning. Later, I found out this is one of the best-selling albums of the year, and kids especially love the songs. Once again I realized how much I don’t know about so many things…..
A powerful documentary into the nature of evil and the terrible things human beings do to each other.
The character is not very likable, but he is talented. The movie shows that sometimes an artist just has to be in the right place at the right time in order to succeed, and in the meantime, he has to struggle just to survive. Not the Coens best film, but I liked it more than I thought I would.
All are well worth renting. Good films.
