I'll echo the surprise lack of love for The Way Way Back but also add that Flight is more of a surprise omission from the list.

On a positive note it's nice to see Mud so high on the list.

When 12 Years a Slave drops in England, you'll all see the second best movie of the year (Gravity rightfully takes #1) blow away these rankings.

Considering some of the entries how is Pacific Rim not in this list at least in terms of sheer entertainment.

Gravity No.1 film of 2013, hahahahaha.
Looks like a script, a story , a plot and intelligent dialogue is no longer required for a good movie according to Empire.

Good list, but is Iron Man 3 the 7TH BEST FILM OF 2013???? I don't think so.

Rubbish list. Les Miserables should definitely be NO1. Greatest movie of all time.

Ok, I enjoyed man of steel & iron man 3, but thy weren't up there in my list. Personally I loved the place beyond the pines and think it deserves to be a lot higher up, and that only god forgives shouldn't even be on the list, it sucked! Don't get me wrong i loved drive but only god forgives is on my worst 2013 list! Django unchained should also of definitely been higher up on there..

I understand you're a UK publication but ranking American movies of 2012 and American movies of 2013 on the same list does defeat the purpose of an annual list. I love Empire but this mismatching has always bothered me in the year-enders. Just my two cents..

This is a total mess of a list. Iron Man 3 at number 7 and Prisoners at 46? You put these in the wring places?

did you not watch the act of killing? It's the only film I've seen that's made me feel physically unwell, I'm very surprised it's not here.

Great list, even if some of the selections are in a bit of an iffy order, however I do believe there are a few pictures missing that deserve to be placed on this list. Ryan Coogler's "Fruitvale Station", Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing" and of course Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave", great list though.

Your timing is out for 2 - neither Fruitvale nor 12 Years a Slave have been out - this is a UK site/magazine

I was disappointed at the absence of Act of Killing in a list that can find room for the likes of Warm Bodies, and other entries in my personal bottom 50 of the year.

I agree with Spirals. Empire can usually appreciate a well-made, hugely enjoyable blockbuster but seemed unable to look past the surface when it comes to this wonderful film, dismissing it as a big, brash explosion-fest a la Michael Bay when it's so much more. I also found it ridiculous that Iron Man 3 with all its plot holes and the joyless Man of Steel made it onto this list ahead of Pacific Rim. But kudos for at least adding the often overlooked Warm Bodies.

Nebraska at number 40 and Iron Man 3 at 7? Is this a joke?!

Woah, 'Catching Fire' was WAY too low! That should have definitely been way above films like Les Mis!

However, the top 5 is great.

There's a lot of good films on the list but I feel there must be a way to include the early 2014 Oscar films even though they've not been released yet.

Sorry, guys, Gravity is a good film in technical terms, otherwise nothing. Nothing new. Old wine in a “new” bottle.

Old schemes are working here: alone in the wilderness ( the space ), nobody can help the man ( women), you have to get out by your own power and having a good luck. The maze is not a town, jungle or a remote part of the earth, but the frigid air(e). ( Sorry! )

The horses, the main „personae” of the western movies, which gave the model for this film, are exchanged for rockets, space stations. Coldblooded ones.

Protagonists or enemies? No, there isn't one. In the new world order, no nation is treated this.

In the good old days, the minorities, the aliens and, of course, preferably the Russians and Chinese were designated to this role. Not to forget the terrorists, but they do not have space weapons, do they?

But now, now, the main enemies are not enemies to the lone (space ) cowboy anymore, but their technique complemented to the super high-tech US ones and therefore usable through books, which the space cowboy simply turned, turned ( without knowing a Russian or Chinese word ) and she knew nearly everything. Computer is computer all were made in China....

In this new, peaceful world good old (philosophical) schemes popped up: the heroine goes through the traps and dangers of the main elements: space ( without oxygen ), fire and water. And reborns as emerging from the water. Wow!

If this enough to win an Oscar and having millions of spectators, who only enjoy the breathtakingly good electronic effects, I will not be very happy.

I know it's a UK magazine, I'm from the UK. However they placed films like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Hobbit before UK release, therefore I was just making some suggestions that could have equally have been 'Late Entries'

Some good films on that list but this is the main reason I don't buy the magazine. Hunger games is one of the worst abominations and should not be on any list but a"worst of all time" list
