2013 Best to Worst

If I'm being honest, my Top 5 here is pretty much all a tie for first... and I genuinely enjoy, to one degree or another, every film in my Top 50-60 or so.

Part of the reason I decided to do a 'Best to Worst' list is to recognize how many amazing movies came out this year - there are a lot of years when something like Upstream Color, Stories We Tell, Captain Phillips or American Hustle would make my Top 5, but this year they find themselves in the 30s.

And fuck anyone who says a blockbuster can't be a fantastic movie.
