My Top 10 Films of 2013


 
So here we go… My Top 10 Films of 2013!

Clicking on the title of the film should link you to a trailer and I will also include a link to any reviews/articles/Padcast episodes I’ve written/recorded about the film in each entry too.

After the main countdown I will include some ‘special mentions’ as there were a fair few up for consideration in the Top 10. Some of them were actually released in 2012 so I chose not to include them in this year’s countdown.

So just to reiterate, all the films in this countdown were released theatrically in the UK during 2013. I have also seen the majority of them more than once so as to be sure of their inclusion and relative position in the list.

Anyway, without further ado, here are my favourites of the year:

Preview: Top 10 Films of 2013 - place your bets!


It’s coming up to that time again when I reveal my Top 10 Films of 2013.

But before we get to that I want to lay the ground rules. This list is based entirely on my opinion so don't be mad if your favourite isn’t on there or if you strongly disagree with anything - but feel free to leave a comment!

The Top 10 is based on films that had a theatrical release in the UK this year. Because of that I’ve had to leave out some films (which I will probably metion after the official 10) that I watched this year (and were really good) but were released before 2013.

This doesn't matter so much for other categories - but I will be strict on that for the Top 10.

      I feel that there is a lot of interesting aspects to discuss here and to attempt to explain why I find it all so fascinating. But first, here's is a brief outline of how it all started:
