Paul’s Best & Worst Movies of 2013



Best Movies of 2013 – Top 5


1. Gravity – A long time in development, but the wait was worth it. Not only the best 3D movie ever made, but possibly the greatest sci-fi movie since 2001: A Space Odyssey.


2. Filth – Darkly comic with fantastic performances. Another Scottish classic from an Irvine Welsh novel.


3. Zero Dark Thirty – Gritty, compelling and tense portrayal of the infamous moment when Bin Laden was found.


4. The Lone Ranger – Forget all the bad press, this was the most under appreciated film of the year. A fun, silly blockbuster that was definitely the highlight of a disappointing Summer season.


5. Rush – Based on the rivalry between two of the best drivers racing during the 70’s. Great performances & a gripping story.


Worst MoviesĀ of 2013 – Top 5



1. We Are The Freaks – How this terrible dark comedy set in early 90s ever received financing is anyone’s guess. Dreadfully unfunny.


2. Diana – What might of been an interesting idea is ruined by a boring plot & the worst dialogue ever committed to a feature film.


3. About Time – Another movie full of ideas, lacking in ideas & even worse breaks all the rules it sets out to explain about time travel.


4. After Earth – Dull, poorly acted rubbish. Dear Hollywood, please stop giving M Night Shamalamadingdong work. It encourages him.


5. Scary Movie 5 – A franchise that should have stayed dead. Barely a chuckle can be found in the film’s overlong 80 minute duration.


Lesley’s Best And Worst Movies of 2013




Best Movies of 2013 – Top 5


1. Gravity – Great science fiction movie with a tiny cast and big effects. The best film of the year in my opinion.


2. Rush – Excellent biopic by Ron Howard. The actors resemble the people they portray and the story is entertaining and accurate.


3. Django Unchained – A humorous and action packed look at slavery in the USA. Great acting and awesome screenwriting. Didn’t feel like almost three hours.


4. The Lone Ranger – Although it didn’t do well in the box office, this is a masterpiece in my opinion. Great story, top class acting and plenty of action.


5. Filth – A dark comedy with some great twists. Not for the easily offended but a must see for those that enjoy humour with the dark realities of life mixed in.


Worst MoviesĀ of 2013 – Top 5




1. We Are The Freaks – A horrendous low budget movie set in early 90s Birmingham. Avoid at all costs.


2. Diana – The acting wasn’t bad, neither was the story. The script, however, was atrocious. A big disappointment.


3. About Time – A nice idea, but done terribly. No conflict, very little story, just a bland romantic comedy.


4. The Big Wedding – This should have been a good movie with the big names featured but a weak script and poorly developed characters made it awful.


5. The Guilt Trip – Lacked humour and was easily forgotten.
