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.

If you want to check out 2011 and 2012’s Top 10 films just click on the date and it will send you there.

I’ve always loved watching films and writing about them here, but as I’ve started to write film reviews for various online blogs/magazines this year, I’ve watched a fair few more than usual. Below is a list of almost all the films I watched this year, arranged in alphabetical order. There are 158 in case you’re wondering – and this doesn't include any films I watched that I have seen before or only partially watched…

Any film I have written about at some point will have the relevant link(s) attached to the title so that you can have a look-see. I usually write about EVERY new film I see, but as you can imagine the amount of films this year have made it very hard to keep up with.

Anyway, have a look below and see if you can guess what will be in my top 10! It should be up in the next few days. Following that will be other categories such as 5 Most Disappointing Films, 5 Films That Were A Lot Better Than I Thought, 3 Most WTF!? Films, Worst Ending and other random things.
