So here it is… my pick of the BEST films of 2013.
Film of The Year: Rush
In Brief:I loved Rush. An excellent drama, a brilliant F1 film and best of all, a movie that keeps it sense of fun and humour.
2. Zero Dark Thirty
In Brief: One of the first films I saw in 2013 ends up being one of the best. Thrilling edge of seat drama, with tense direction from Katherine Bigelow and top notch performances. Brilliant.
In Brief: A fascinating documentary on a fascinating man. It’s not flashy or showy but it tells the story of a true original.
4. The Way Way Back
In Brief: A lovely coming of age film, charming sweet and funny with some great central performances.
5. Despicable Me 2
In Brief: Not just one of the funniest film of 2013 but also one of the most charming. Okay so it’s mostly down to the excellent Minions but Despicable Me 2 had me quoting lines even to this day.
Thor 2, Hitchcock; Alan Partridge Alpha Papa; Mea Maxima Culpa; Iron Man 3; White House Down; Django Unchained; Batman The Dark Knight Returns Pt 2; The Impossible; Olympus Has Fallen; Fast 6; Kick Ass 2, Blackfish
