The rules

1) releases by UK dates - if only for consistency, otherwise we'd have a gap year to year
2) some leeway with foreign language films, particularly if they've not been released over here - a reasonable and accessible DVD release is sufficient for most foreign language movies, and most will have a festival showing over here.
3) New releases only - with so many film resurrections, new prints etc it'd be too easy to fill the list with non-new films otherwise.

Choose your top 10/15/20/25 films for 2013 (entirely your choice on the number) on this basis and post or PM. If you want to double-check a foreign release we can try and get some kind of consensus.

Feel free to change your choices up to the mid/end of January (it would really help if you quoted the post you were changing!). As usual the chaps in the Films of 2013 list thread might give you some ideas and sites like Filmdates can give you a reasonable run down of UK releases - it includes a lot of festival stuff too. And is often wrong - unless anyone else saw Calvary at the beginning of November!

Also, if people have seen reissues through the year and feel like posting a top 3 or 5 of those? If there are enough I'll count those as a separate list. With the Cagney retrospective at Glasgow Film Fest, Kobayashi at Leeds Film Fest and Napoleon at the Royal Festival Hall my retrospectives list might be more difficult than my new one!

As usual - if you want to big up a film for people to see, post away? The Act of Killing is now on DVD eg (and still turning up on Sky Atlantic) and The Great Beauty has been moved to the end of January DVD release (although, oddly, is currently on digital download and is still pretty bloody brilliant when watching on a phone on a train).

This will inevitably be changing before the middle of January, but here's my top 10 so far (I only get to see about 12 films in the cinema a year, so I don't have the widest range to choose from):

1) Cloud Atlas - 10
2) Man Of Steel - 10
3) Django Unchained - 10
4) The World's End - 9
5) Star Trek Into Darkness - 9
6) Les Miserables - 8
7) The Wolverine - 8
8) Thor: The Dark World - 8
9) Side Effects - 7
10) Kick-Ass 2 - 7


Other films I've seen from this year, so far (some are on Lovefilm and straight-to-DVD explaining why it comes to more than 12 in total):

Iron Man 3 - 7
Despicable Me 2 - 7
Superman Unbound - 7
Dragon - 7

The list is films from 2013 - it doesn't matter how you've seen them and the list isn't cinema viewings only. We extend to the end of January for people to catch up with DVD releases of films they missed at the cinema

I think I'm only waiting on seeing Wadjda and Blue is the Warmest Colour before putting together my list.

On another note, hey elab, can you check out my query about the Bill Douglas trilogy in the current hof? It's almost as bad as matty being confused by The Untouchables.

Yeah, I don't know exactly what he is confused about but Rawlinson keeps giving him a hard time about it.

The Untouchables Spoilers


Remember that bit at the end where Capone has bribed the jury and Ness shows the list of jurors names to the judge, and then only convinces him to switch it for another jury by telling him that his (the judge's) name was in a book of people who took payoffs from Capone? Yeah, Matty couldn't understand why they switched juries.

It's his favourite film.

FUCK OFF EVERYONE

The lawyer with Ness says in disbelief "But his name wasn't in the ledger!" which is why it's confusing. Why would the judge be scared of a ledger without his name in it?

But yes, fuck you all.

Because his name being in the ledger was obviously believable to him... pretty much confirming Ness' hunch that even though his name wasn't there, he was in fact on Capone's payroll.

I won't laugh too much because I don't know how bad my confusion over the Bill Douglas Trilogy is, until someone explains it to me. Although I never thought you could be so naive Matty.

I did read your query before but I only had the phone to post and that was a bit crap - something about not picking up his dad and his dad's brother were both there, the latter the git who beat him up over the pearls?

SPOILERS FOR BILL DOUGLAS TRILOGY





Oh that's cleared it up for me. So the guy who beats Jamie up over the pearls was his uncle and then he has the affair with his brother's spouse. Ok, I feel a bit silly now, it's so obvious.

Anyway can't believe it is that time again, feels like no where near a year since the last one, wonder why that could be?...

Have so far seen between 60 and 70 films this year and so when I have caught up on a few more will submit a list of roughly 30 films.

It was in last years poll but I eg included it on my viewing at the UK premiere at a festival. I think it's one of those ones with release dates a bit before Xmas which perhaps spread out to some areas into the new year, rather than a big mainstream release. Depends where you saw it?

We've had this come up with a similar release a few years ago where it was in some parts of the country in one year and in others the following. Technically we do use the official UK release date but I don't have a problem. It might not be that reason of course! But if it is, I'd only say it's unlikely to pick up any other votes for the 2013 poll.

No TV movies I'm afraid. Unless there is a cinema release - so Behind the Candlebra got a pretty full theatrical run out irrespective of origins. But, generally, no TV.

Well they should

I thought i'd watched quite a lot this year (48 Films) but there's a LOT still to watch but here's a top 20 for now. (Clear History would be at 5 or 6th) Happy with the top 10

1. A Hijacking
2. The Way, Way Back
3. The Paperboy
4. Bullhead
5. The Last Stand
6. Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa
7. Easy Money
8. Love Is All You Need
9. Only God Forgives
10. Wreck-It Ralph
11. Sleep Tight
12. Robot & Frank
13. Bachelorette
14. John Dies at the End
15. The Heat
16. We’re the Millers
17. Iron Man 3
18. Paradise: Love
19. Everyday
20. The Kings of Summer

Hoping to watch before deadline: The Place Beyond the Pines, Stoker, This Is 40, I Wish, Beyond the Hills, Reality , Neighbouring Sounds, Mud, The Iceman, Despicable Me 2, Stories We Tell, This Is the End, Paradise: Faith, Paradise: Hope, Monsters University, Pacific Rim, Call Girl, Elysium, The Broken Circle Breakdown, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Should watch, but either don't want to or won't be seeing for a while: Lincoln, The Master, Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, The Sessions, The King of Pigs, To the Wonder, Lore, Caesar Must Die, Gangs of Wasseypur, In the Fog, Behind the Candelabra, Wadjda, From Up on Poppy Hill, The Great Beauty, Pieta, Metro Manila, Prisoners, Blue Jasmine, Filth, Captain Phillips, Prince Avalanche, Like Father, Like Son, The Selfish Giant, Child's Pose, Gloria, Philomena, Gravity, Blue is the Warmest Colour & Saving Mr. Banks

I'd highly recommend these 2. I don't know if Prince Avalanche will be eligible for this list? The original is on the GFT Player.

Even free I'm not sure I'd bother rewatching.
