It might be 2014, but we have our top-10 favorite films from 2013

By Jordon Hall

The year 2013 had to follow an epic year of 2012, which had monster blockbusters: “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Avengers” and “Skyfall” (which all made over a billion dollars.)

Then you had numerous films that were nominated or snubbed: “Argo,” “Lincoln” and “Silver Lining’s Playbook”. The year 2013 had a lot less hype going into this year. We found out we had a new Batman, The Avengers’ cast were all in solo films, another silly “Fast and Furious” movie, Johnny Depp still playing subpar roles, Will Smith playing second-fiddle to his son, Tom Cruise in another crappy scientology movie and the man who played Tony Soprano left us (James Gandolfini).

It is safe to say it was a different year in film, but that doesn’t mean there still wasn’t great movies to see in theaters.

Films I didn’t have a chance to see: “The Hobbit,” “Pacific Rim,” “12 Years A Slave,” “We’re the Miller’s” and “Rush.”

Honorable Mention: “Don Jon,” “The Purge,” “Enough Said,” “The Butler,” “Word War Z” and “Elysium.”
